I'm in shock.
I just donít believe this number, I believe you heard it but I canít believe a first-world nation like the UK would suffer this much. Modern medicine has eliminated Polio, TB, even cured some forms of cancer. I donít believe with all the resources and knowledge at our disposal any modern country would suffer this much from an influenza. If this were some laboratory-created super microbe (think of the movie ďI am LegendĒ) maybe, but I honestly feel with public measures and medicinal experts working around the clock it will not get this bad.
