    I couldn't find much info on this Tac, except for some saying now it is just chicken pox.
    I think with the way the media is anymore if there really was an outbreak we would have 24 hour live news from Swabi with sick little children wailing in the background.
    Just my opinion.

    Yeah, your probaby correct on that Sherry, it was
    posted at TFF and I thought I'd copy & post it here
    to see if anyone had any info and or opinions on the
    subject.

    The media never gives the true story anyway!
