    So is it better to get this weak flu strain , before the expected stronger strain hits town.

    Anybody fancy getting infected of purpose? , before cases are in the multi-millions and the health service is overwhelmed.

    Just go to mexico and find an attractive pig.;)
    But I would rather get this flu later.

    Seriously, not a good idea/difficult to impliment. If they contain it, there will be no dager to get it. If you get it, there's small probability you are gonna die. Or you may have to be isolated for like 10 days. And it's not like herpes - it's difficult to find people who have it currently. :D

    I think when a person recovers from the swine flu and they are no long infectious , they should no longer be included in the confirmed cases as it makes thing seem worse than they are.

    It would be better as your immune system will be somewhat equipped to fight off the flu when it possibly re-visits this winter. Let us know how your plans for self-infection go :D
