Also, the virus seems to primarily affect adult males between 24 and 45.

Sky might have something about it at some point:

Illinois-based Baxter working on vaccine to stop swine flu outbreak in Mexico


Specialty drug maker Baxter International Inc. will work with the World Health Organization to develop a vaccine that could stem an outbreak of a deadly swine flu strain in Mexico.

Baxter spokesman Christopher Bona said Saturday that the Deerfield, Ill.-based company has asked the WHO for a sample of the flu strain.

He says Baxter has patented technology that allows the company to develop vaccines in half the time it usually takes — about 13 weeks instead of 26.

There have been 20 confirmed deaths in Mexico of the swine flu, with nonfatal cases also confirmed in Kansas and California.

Humans don't have a natural immunity to swine flu strain that emerged in Mexico in March. Officials have warned the outbreak could become a global epidemic.

So again...question is what in the world are they mass vaccinating Mexico with???

Looks like it may have already arrived in New Zealand:
Schoolkids bringing it back from a trip to Mexico.

Still unconfirmed, fortunately.

I am convinced now that this new flu is man made.

Why this isn't being broadcasted? Probably to keep people calm I suppose.


This new variant has traits of multiple different viruses... the problem is, viruses don't mate with each other, they're a-sexual. You can't mix viruses together to make a new one.



... that is... unless you're a human and you tamper with genetics.

FACTBOX-Asia moves to ward off new flu virus


April 26 (Reuters) - Asia, a continent that has battled deadly viruses such as the H5N1 bird flu and SARS in recent years, began taking steps over the weekend to ward off a new flu virus.

The swine flu virus has killed up to 81 people in Mexico and infected 11 others in the United States. More than 1,300 are believed to be infected in Mexico.

Following are some details of how Asian countries are responding to the crisis and how markets are expected to react:

www.alertnet.org...

China, Japan and other countries are beginning to impose restrictions and screenings. Something that needs to be done in the US. Leaving the epidemic unmanaged will only make things worse.

Story Highlights
NEW: New Zealand quarantines 22 students, 3 teachers with swine flu symptoms

81 deaths in Mexico "likely linked" to swine flu; ministry given emergency powers

Two cases confirmed in Kansas; more suspected in New York

Mutated form concerns World Health Organization


CNN Story


"Emergency powers"? Is that anything like FEMA being able to do whatever the hell they want during an emergency?

Having written up a couple summary reports on SARS and related viruses, here's what I guess is closer to the unreportable reality in Mexico.

First of all only a small percentage of the population has access to quality medical care in Mexico, centres where something more than symptoms will be treated.

Major urban or tourist areas with a relatively middle class patient base will be where they have the means to actually test and isolate viruses.

So there may be even 50 times as many cases undiagnosed or recognized in the country. Given a lower health standard in poor and remote regions, a higher death rate.

The elderly affected will be said to have died of natural causes (whatever that is) - things like pneumonia, organ failure, asthma, etc.

Children and teenagers will be more resistant, as well as females. So it will LOOK as if if males 25-45 are the most affected by the available numbers.

Stats for this kind of thing, given that the government has the means to control the release of information, are very questionable.

Not saying this is epidemic proportions, but if it reaches that, you won't be told for some time, if ever.

There was a TV3 news flash in which it there was an unconfirmed reported that ten of the students had tested positive for the Swine Flu . Here is hoping that the report is false . For the benefit of international readers TV3 is a commercial TV station here in New Zealand .

Yeah, it's confirmed to be a flu virus...guess they're still going to have to confirm the "swine" part of it, though.www.nzherald.co.nz....

As Middlemore Hospital's on my train ride in to work, maybe it's time to start driving in to the city, instead.
