Swine Flu Data 'Very Consistent' With Early Stages Of A Pandemic


Researchers from the MRC Centre for Outbreak Analysis and Modelling at Imperial College London, working in collaboration with the World Health Organisation and public health agencies in Mexico, have assessed the epidemic using data to the end of April. Their key findings are as follows:

The data so far is very consistent with what researchers would expect to find in the early stages of a pandemic.

Wow, those are some pretty scary figures in this article! Maybe the first time I myself have read such an honest estimate of how many may have truly been infected so far...32,000? Good article!

Assessing the severity of an influenza pandemic
11 May 2009


The H1N1 virus strain causing the current outbreaks is a new virus that has not been seen previously in either humans or animals. Although firm conclusions cannot be reached at present, scientists anticipate that pre-existing immunity to the virus will be low or non-existent, or largely confined to older population groups.

H1N1 appears to be more contagious than seasonal influenza. The secondary attack rate of seasonal influenza ranges from 5% to 15%. Current estimates of the secondary attack rate of H1N1 range from 22% to 33%.

got it, just got the numbers in, call going...

i'll update what i can type

Emergency call for cdc on chilren that was today.
ok, this may be choppy and a bit hard to read but typing what i can that seems important as people say it and ask it..



Reccomending Tamaflu for kids and infants liquid and tab form
going though doses and sizes etc for kids.. nothing to big

romanaver ?? Something like that anyone heard of this drug?

6 milion drugs for containnment efforst 44mil for distributin for health care

current recomendations for health care guidance has not changed same as cdc website

most exposure in health care is community exposure and not health care settings (per speaker)

developmental disaiblite are at higher risk for complications from virus

infants less than 6 mo of age are also at higher risk.


short confrence all, although missed the first few min. Hopefuly you got more of it. call , questions now..

asking about risk factors with children with blood disorder, responce "we dont realy know" in reguards to other symptoms and problems.

"dang i should have charged my phone when i got home this morning, its low, should make though, i'll ride it out till it dies"

more viral pnumonia in paitents that are hospitalised, secondairy bactireal pnumonia

tamaflu sent to mainly childrens hospitals for infants and kids not to normal hospitals, drugs were sent to states, states were in charge of passing out drugs to all locations. (interesting)


No longer looking at containment but reducing transmission

catagory to get tested for kids Fever Plus 2 symptoms (per NY doctor)

Viral Shedding ? ? ? ? they keep refering to this, not sure what it means.. just getting rid of the bug i guess?? not sure maby someone else knows.

Ped in Ny city no source for tamiflu or lorenza for her paitents except for ebay. *LOL* That was a great slam... they advised to work with the health department. Has probably case not posotive, NY departmetn of health did not want the dr to treat them. ? ? WTF ? ? ?

responce, check with state, no shortages, no mention that DOH said not to treat them... HELLO

basicaly was told, well we dont know but we will check on it...



Sounds like the states are sitting on the tamiflu and not passing it out to the DR's and hospitals and clinic's.. this is about the 4th Dr that has asked how to get ahold of the drug.

Once signed over to the state, the drugs become the states property.



local pharmacy refred her to ebay, wholey crap... sounds like we need some tamiflu and we could make some serious cash... this is the next gold mine.


Tamiflu NOT FDA approved for children
under 1 year age and questionable up to 2 years of age

director of ?? crap little butt was loud, emergency managment of some kind and some where..

each day that passes media gets more local about the virus, while the virus is growing fast

responce, how the virus evolves is continuing to be a intrest to us we are watching but can not be predicted. trying to prepare for what could happen in early fall, clearly unpredictable. In terms of generalising this condition as very mild we have to be careful about that , while number of deaths have been relative small we are early into this epicdemic so we have to be careful, no one can predict whats going to happen over the next month or comple of months but we will be watching.

start preparing for a surge and how you would prepare as a community for emergency managment. Work with hospitals.

**phew***

n95 respreator is whats used for paitents that are diagnosed with the virus, (not sure why just that one but it is what cdc is mandating)

Virus shedding in uppper respitory track translates to a higher probability of transmission.


end of call,
cocka@cdc.gov email for questons for doctors.


emergency.cdc.gove/cocka for transcripts of call
will be posted soon.


i'll edit to update more

(Sorry about spelling)

Premier puts on apron at barbecue to support pork industry


Premier Gary Doer donned an apron at lunchtime to barbecue pork and demonstrate support for the province’s pork industry at an event on the south grounds of the Legislative Building.

The Canadian pork industry is concerned about international reaction to the so-called "swine flu," which has infected people in a number of countries around the world.

Medical experts say that it cannot be passed to humans through consumption of pork.

However, China barred pork from Alberta after the flu was recently identified in a swine herd in that province. And other countries have banned pork shipments from Canada as well.

At noon, Doer stood shoulder to shoulder at the barbecue with Baldur hog producer Karl Kynoch, president of the Manitoba Pork Council.

Kynoch and Doer’s government have sparred over a new provincial law limiting the growth of the hog industry in some parts of Manitoba. But today they were together handing out free pork sandwiches to a crowd that included Joel Kettner, the province’s chief provincial public health officer of health, pork industry officials, a number of MLAs and government employees.

Swine flu is spreading so far and fast in the U.S. that health officials may soon stop counting individual cases, a federal health official said Monday.

Great job!


Viral shedding refers to the successful reproduction, expulsion, and host-cell infection caused by virus progeny. Once replication has been completed and the host cell is exhausted of all resources in making viral progeny, the viruses may begin to leave the cell by several methods[1].

Swine Flu on Track to Be a Pandemic




Swine flu spreads easily enough and infects enough people to spark a global pandemic, according to a new analysis by the World Health Organization’s Rapid Pandemic Assessment Collaboration. That’s the news of the day, released early by the journal Science “because it contains important public health information.” The bottom line: We’re not safe yet, despite the Monday-morning feeling that swine flu is last week’s news. This may be just the first weeks of a three-to-five-year pandemic, with wave after wave of sickness and death.


Scary thought "This may be just the first weeks of a three-to-five-year pandemic, with wave after wave of sickness and death."

New gene map shows big diversity in Mexico
Mon May 11, 2009 5:06pm EDT

WASHINGTON, May 11 (Reuters) - A new gene map of Mexicans show they are as diverse as their history suggests and could benefit from having their own, unique analysis when it comes to testing drugs and assessing disease risks, researchers reported on Monday.

They studied 300 mestizos -- people of mixed ethnic heritage -- and found many different genetic variations that pointed to Indian, European and African ancestry. They also compared these sequences to those found among 30 ethnic Indians.

"This study makes clear that Latin Americans with mixed ancestry are different enough from other people worldwide that a full-scale genomic mapping project would be wise both scientifically and economically," said Dr. Julio Frenk of the Harvard School of Public Health, a former Mexican minister of health.

"It would allow doctors to analyze fewer genetic markers when diagnosing the risk that a patient will develop a disease that depends on complex factors.

Good job getting through and keeping up with the questions as well as their answers! I was itching to get home and check back in to see what you heard!

Sounds like this IS way more dire than is out in the public; if doctors have to go on ebay, WTH is THAT!? No wonder they aren't testing everyone. The states are holding on their suppiles!

Thanks for the effort

Yea, why the heck would the states sit on the drugs, realy weird..

the only thing i can think of is that things are going to get a LOT worse and they dont want to use them all at once until they know more is in production and can be shipped... (even though reports say the drugs are useless)

Prity sad for DOH of NY to tell the DR that Ebay was her best option, i'm glad CDC told her to stay on the line so they could get more info.

The other troubeling thing is that once the meds are given to the state, they become property of the state....

So the gov gives the state goodies, and they have the legal right to do what they want, pass them out, sell them to the highest bidder... realy odd.... You would think the cdc would follow through and make sure they go to the hospitals, not drop the ball and leave it up to the state do do as they wish.
