Its very interesting to see that its merged between Bird/Swine and now it can be transfered to Humans. Now thats one serious genetic virus. Well if this is just a trailer of what's to come, then i guess were all in the # hole.

I guess you all know why those fema camps have so many body capsules. Given the amount of units that will cease to exist, i guess their planning has been thoughtout

Potential to go global

World Health Organization: Swine flu could spread globally



(CNN) -- The presence of swine flu in Mexico and the United States is "a serious situation" that could develop into a pandemic, the World Health Organization's director-general said Saturday.

I will continue to observe Canada and Europe, to see if the infection has spread out from the United States and Mexico.

WHO flu experts meeting concludes, no decisions


GENEVA, April 25 (Reuters) - An emergency meeting of influenza experts discussed the swine flu outbreaks in Mexico and the United States but did not take any decisions, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Saturday.

WHO spokeswoman, Sari Setiogi, said the group of 15 experts including WHO Director-General Margaret Chan had heard the latest information from the Mexican and U.S. health authorities. The United Nations agency would continue to monitor the situation on Sunday but no meetings were planned.

Is it just me or are people just acting real odd over this?

The CDC saying they won't do anything and now the WHO is acting funny too.

Proactive measures should be taken, but they are not being taken.

75 children in one school


FOXNews



NEW YORK — New York City health officials say that about 75 students at a Queens high school have fallen ill with flu-like symptoms and testing is under way to rule out the strain of swine flu that has killed dozens in Mexico.

The Health Department's Dr. Don Weiss said Friday that agency doctors and investigators were dispatched to the private St. Francis Preparatory School the previous day after students reported fever, sore throat, cough, aches and pains. No one has been hospitalized.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


Results will take several days, but its abit too coincidental that 75 children fall ill with flu during a potential panademic.

I agree it all a bit slow for me, ok its not at any huge outbreak situation just yet and seems to be fairly localised, but the last thing i would want is to get ill because authorities dont shut down the borders quick enough. But not just yet lets wait till it gets worse shall we. There is no reason this should hit europe, it can be avoided. Although im not sure if this is going to be as big as people are thinking. Maybe.

Proactive as in what? Declaring Martial Law?

What would you imagine the proper "Proactive" measures should entail? Restricted travel? Denying US citizens entry to the US from Mexico? Stop trade?

Proactive as in travel advisories and restricted travel/screening from Mexico to the US. Crackdown on illegal immigrant traffic and narcotics traffic.

If they don't do anything proactive until its too late then you will see martial law or more likely a state of emergency.

We don't have to get to that point if proactive steps are taken right now.

Just found this posted on You Tube today, from news channel
infowars.com...a short but very illuminating video...


Given the reports of the possibility of a swine flu epidemic, is interesting to note that last time there was a significant outbreak of a new form of swine flu in the U.S. it originated at the army base at Fort Dix, New Jersey.

More idiocy from the WHO.



Premature to issue travel advisories, WHO head says

* Too soon to switch to production of new flu vaccine

www.alertnet.org...

When is it ever too soon to produce vaccines? This is completely bizarre.

They'll wait for a few millions dead then MAYBE they'll start to research a vaccine. They want people dead and more power. That's simple.

Um, the cat is already out of the bag. Let's say it takes a week or two to start showing signs of being infected.

How many people do you think have come from an effected areas, how many people have they come in close contact with, and in turn with them, and so on?

Now maybe it is more clear that the cat is out of the bag. Basically, mankind cannot control these things and when nature is ready, there is no happy ending for us.

As much as people want to think we are in control of our surrounds, it simply is not true.

What you suggest would cause more panic and waste resources than any potential benefit. Let it run it's course, let Darwin's rules work again.

If the virus is bio engineered by terrorists or whoever, the last thing it needs to be let done is to run its course.

Even in its natural state H1N1 killed almost 100 million people over 90 years ago. That is not something that should be allowed to happen.

The nations and health organizations that let millions of people die are doing nothing more than contributing to genocide.

1. It is still too early to jump to any conclusions.
2. It is too late to jump to any action other than monitor and try to help the infected get better. Bury the dead, etc...

IF this is going to be big, then it will. It cannot be stopped.

Nobody is going to come running with the vaccine at the last minute (like in the movies), and even if they did, you have so many that won't take it anyways, so it will stick around and get those hiding out and also have a chance to mutate.

Again, what do you suggest to stop this?

Interesting -
Hmmm... and the bird part of the virus???

If nothing else - perhaps this will get people to finally stop eating pigs.
Sorry all of you pork eaters -

It will be interesting to see if the virus can be passed through pork cuts
. stay away from crowds, and pork products until further notice
this could get ugly

Oh my. This is SO um.. something.
Aren't they just always wanting to make a buck off of a new vaccine.
Especially if they KNOW it is this crazy combo virus... that there is no vaccine for?
(not that I want one)
This is out of character - no?
Weird.

BTW - great information on the solar issue. Had no idea. Fascinating.

Texas family quarantined after son contracts swine flu!


Health officials arrived at the Henshaws' house Friday and drew blood from the whole family, then told them to stay inside and away from the public, Henshaw told CNN.

The whole family is quarantined indefinitely, according to CNN-affiliate KABB. Henshaw said his family was shocked when they got the news about their son.

"Stunned. My wife was having a panic attack," Henshaw told the affiliate.

Over in the medical issues forum there's a micro/molecular biologist sounding off in a MOST serious manner, he seems to think this is the big one. Check this thread

BAXTER to work on vaccine for flu outbreak....

Weren't these people linked to the recent "accidental" sending out vaccines containing a live virus...?
