Swine flu death rate of 2.1 to 3.2?

Here is a sobering estimate of the potential deaths coming from swine flu this winter. CDC has predicted a 2.1 percent to 3.3 percent death rate among those who come down with swine flu this fall.
No mention of what the infection rate would be but if it was 50% that could mean between 118,000 and 264,000 people would die here in Florida this coming winter. And since we have a large population of older people who would be more susceptible to the flu it could even be higher. Don't know how reliable this source is but I sure haven't heard those numbers from anybody in government here. This would sure put an end to all those phony green shoot lies we keep hearing about.
