Forget about the symptoms for catching this horrible virus, take a look at the economic reaction to the virus!

- Asian investors are selling airline stocks
- Gold is being bought up like candy because suddenly other investments are in danger (of catching the flu?).
- Drug manufacturing companies are also a sudden safe-haven.
- Oil barons fear a lack of demand because of the drop in flights, so the oil price drops.

If you read the articles, and follow through, the financial crisis that was beginning to look like it had hit the bottom of the trough will suddenly start to nosedive again.

Incredible world this.

EDIT:
Real Symptoms:
The symptoms of swine flu in people are expected to be similar to the symptoms of regular human seasonal influenza and include fever, lethargy, lack of appetite and coughing. Some people with swine flu also have reported runny nose, sore throat, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. ( http://www.cdc.gov/swineflu/key_facts.htm )
