In their quest for ratings and the perpetuation of “WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!!” fear mongering, the media and our beloved local state government have, once again, teamed up to spread fear. Out of a population of ten million people (2.2. million children,) one child has died from Swine flu.
In order to protect panic in the specific area where the child lived, they have decided not to tell where the child lived, how it was contracted, and when it was contracted. They are only saying it happened in North Carolina – HENCE – creating fear and panic across the entire state.
Please also note this quote:
“Engel said the child’s death was likely due to underlying medical conditions which made the effects of swine flu more severe.”
It would help to know what these underlying medical conditions were.
