Seven(7) Cases Of Swine Flu Identified In Ontario

OH YES, IT IS NO LONGER SWINE FLU, NOW IT IS….BLAH BLAH BLAH FLU
Governments around the world have made a change to the way we talk about the swine flu. Now we must call it the H1N1 Flu lest we piss off a few hog farmers somewhere.(some farmers complained that naming a flu after pork made it difficult to sell their pork products.)
So….now we have 7 cases of H1N1 influenza in Ontario with the addition of the latest infected batch of people being found near the GTA. Canadas’ infected population now totals 34 people.
Public health officials are telling people that there are effective treatments available in the country, one being Tamiflu, and the other being Relenza. They are also tracking the spread of the disease and have noted that it seems mostly confined to people who live in close quarters, dorms and hospitals.
Seems like a good enough reason to stay away from my mother in laws this weekend.

    They had to stop calling it swine flu in order to avoid a possible Human Rights Commission Complaint. The term swine flu might expose pigs to hatred or contempt. After all, pigs have feelings too. 🙂
