In the United States more than 100,000 people are hospitalized and more than 20,000 people die from the flu and its complications every year. (Source: excerpt from The Flu, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID) ... In an average year, flu leads to about 20,000 deaths nationwide and many more hospitalizations. (Source: excerpt from What to Do About the Flu - Age Page - Health Information: NIA)

It's more about the hype than the actual serious nature of the flu...Not making fun of any deaths, just the hype of this particular strain. If regular flu deaths were reported on the front page every day, we'd never read about anything else. 20,000 a year for ANY flu in the U.S.A. alone would mean 5-6 front page deaths from the flu every day. Unless someone publishes a 'Flu Only' newspaper, I'm flued out~!
