  1. The difference, though, if early news accounts are correct, is that while “regular” flu kills, the people who tend to die are either (a) sick and elderly or (b) have a compromised immune system. With swine flu, the people most susceptible to death appear to be those with ROBUST immune systems. That’s quite similar to the Spanish Flu of the early 20th century.

    I am not sure that that is an accurate description, but I am no medical expert. I think it is fair to say that swine flu is potentially more deadly to people with robust immune systems than is the case with regular flu, but as I understand it, those with robust immune systems should still be able to weather it.
