President Obama waited until 1000 people had died from Swine Flu in the United States before declaring an emergency, because of his late response, the US had the most cases of Swine Flu and the most deaths of any country, here are some stats on the Swine Flu Death counts. While looking at these stats please remember the USA has 325 Million people, India and China have 1.4 Billion people each: India had 1035 Swine Flu deaths, China had 737 Swine Flu deaths,
Turkey had 458 Swine Flu deaths, United Kingdom had 457 Swine Flu deaths, Russia had 438 Swine Flu deaths, Spain 232, Thailand 192....................
As you can see even though India and China have 1.1 Billion people more than the US each.... no place can even compare to the 12,469 Swine Flu deaths we had in the US.
