Why is No-One Dying in the United States?

The lack of deaths here in the United States has experts wondering what has changed the virus to make it less fatal among the American population. Many scientists and doctors believe that people dying in Mexico could be suffering from secondary infectiions such as diabetes or heart disease that make them more susceptible to the virus. It might also be be another viral infection in addition to the H1N1 that is creating a more deadly combination. Finally, the pollution or lack of adequate health care could contribute greatly to the fatalities. It does appear that the number of cases is stabilizing in Mexico as more infected individuals are administered antiviral medications such as Tamiflu in a timely manner.
