Are you an infant, over the age or 65? Do you have chronic pulmonary disorder?

Didn't think so.
According to my wife (who is somewhat involved in all this), this flu has killed mostly young adults in Mexico. She said that young adults in the modern World have less resistance to attack by severe flu since they have suffered less exposure to infectious disease than older people so it is possible to get a bad reaction.

The above article said this:
Epidemiologists are particularly concerned because the only fatalities so far were in young people and adults.
