Mexican Swine Flu Migrating, but seems mild

The pandemic is 'past control' according to the WHO, but so far, it is proving to be remarkably mild in the developed world. Mexico has seen over 100 dead. To keep that in perspective, tens of thousands Americans die each year on average from the garden variety of the flu.

As a barometer, Google News has bumped the story from the headlines, from the sidebar, to related stories below the fold, so to speak.

I think everyone is mystified, but thankful, that the flu so far is very, very mild, except in the country in which it started.
