The swine flu: Stop getting on my nerves!

No, I am not afraid of swine flu.

If there will be massive vaccinations, I will not use them. If the topic is in the news, I ignore it. If politicians talk about it, they move one rank lower in my sympathy scale.

This is just a flu, as there is a flu once or twice a year. And I don't want that millions are spent on a rather minor illness, while millions lack for other dangerous or wide-spread illnesses, including those like malaria that are affecting whole national economies in some southern countries.

So stop getting on my nerves - swine flu is just a media hype playing with some the fear factor... But I am not afraid!
