Swine flu v/s YSR related deaths

This is interesting.

Swine flu till date has caused 111 deaths in India starting from Aug 4 i.e in 24 x 30 = 720 hours. (Source)
Rate of death = 111/720 = 0.154 deaths/hour

60 YSR fans have died out of shock / committed suicide just within 48 hours of his death.(Source)
Rate of death = 60/48 = 1.2 deaths/hour

No of people affected by swine flu = 4,364. (Source)
No of people affected by YSR's death should definitely be greater.

YSR's death is indeed a deadly calamity. Who is going to curb it?
