"… there is no such thing as nothing."

At that rate, you’ll be through in…

The Associated Press is reporting that China’s health minister stated recently that 1.5 million Chinese citizens are being inoculated daily with H1N1 (swine flu) vaccine. They hope to have vaccinated nearly 7% of that nation’s population by this year’s end. Thus far, more than 50 Million Chinese people have been immunized, according to Chen Zhu, whom spoke from the Global Forum for Health Research being held in Havana, Cuba.

China is the world’s most populous nation, which CIA estimates in July 2008 placed at 1,330,044,544.

To give you an idea of the enormity of that task, if Chinese officials continue at that present rate – 1.5 million daily – it’d take 2.4293051 years (or, 2 years, 5ive months,  4 days, 13 hours) to completely inoculate the entire Chinese population.

And you wonder why they can get things done? (They ARE, after all, building the world’s largest hydroelectric dam. And we Americans have trouble figuring out if everybody in this nation needs healthcare, and how to get it done?)

Please!
