How concerned are you? Do you think the public and/or the government is overracting to it?

Oh don't get me started on this one.

I'm not all that concerned at all.

Yes, I do think that the public/govt is making more out of this then it really is. They're finally coming out and saying it's just like the human flu (which I've been telling everyone that asks about it)

Better stop, or this might turn into a two page post from me.

I'm not overly concerned either. I think there's been a huge overreaction to this, and we don't need to hear such common sense as "wash your hands" and "cover your mouth" on the news 24 hrs a day.

Closing entire school districts instead of keeping the actual sick kids home seems pretty ridiculous. These tens of thousands of kids who's schools are closed.....where are they going to go? Most don't have parents who can stay home from work so do they go to daycare? Illness is going to spread just as quickly there as it would in school! I just don't get it.

Not concerned at all-and yes, people are overreacting. They always do.

Remember the peanut butter scare recently? I thought there was a lot of mass hysteria then, too. Didn't stop eating PB and I'm not gonna seclude myself or my child just because we COULD get sick. I COULD fall and crack my head open in the shower. Doesn't mean I'm gonna start stinking the place up LOL
