@ Chise61 also....

So are you both thinking along the lines of a possible '2for1' experiment to track a virus like the 1918 pandemic in real time and a possible depopulation plan?

I started thinking about this after i read the articles that Clouds posted a few days ago and heard the Director General of the WHO in one of their earlier conferences, mention something like....

"This is the first time in history we've been able to track a virus like this in real time"

Hmmm...very strange indeed...a snippet from the I'm not sure what to think



Viral DNA can only replicate or grow like a crystal, if the temperature of the host cell liquid cytoplasm is below 100 degrees F, and it "prefers" a temperature of 96F or below. For "cold-blooded" birds and reptiles this can occur all year long, but mostly in winter. For humans and most mammals this lower body temperature condition actually occurs during sleep and when under stress. This lower body temperature may also occur when exposed to cold winter weather. This is why winter is flu season.

A human "fever" above 102F completely stops all viral replication, giving the immune system T-cells and macrophages enough time to track down and destroy the invading virus. Lowering the fever temperature with modern over-the-counter cold medications can kill you. The only thing an annual flu shot does is speed the process of T-cells finding certain viruses. The flu shot does not actually give immunity or prevent infection, especially if the person also takes cold medications or prophylactics such as Tamiflu which lower the body temperature and thwart the normal immune system fever response. It could actually be deadly.

some more tid bits..

MIT researchers found that the 1918 avian flu virus strain developed two mutations in a surface molecule called hemagglutinin (HA), which allowed it to bind tightly to receptors in the human upper respiratory tract.

"Two mutations dramatically change the HA binding affinity to receptors found in the human upper airways," said the paper's senior author Ram Sasisekharan,
''Chasing Tamiflu resistant H1N1 with mismatched vaccines is hazardous to the worlds health because of diminished protection and an increased risk if dual infections involving H1N1 and H5N1 leading to Tamiflu resistant H5N1.''

i honestly dont know about this one..i was always raised to sweet it out..meaning let what ever run a fever,but keep it in check..Meaning 101-102 max..usualy when I start sweating thats about when i get to feeling better..

But this one I have know idea..

Here's something on it...

Cytokine Storm

One of the prevailing hypotheses on why pandemic flu is so deadly is the notion that those with stronger immune systems will be more likely to die from the virus because of a “cytokine storm”. The cytokine storm is thought to cause death not from the virus itself, but the immune system overreacting to it. Victims suffer a virus induced response of the immune system—“a cytokine storm”—which leads to acute respiratory distress. In otherwords, in the process of fighting the disease, a person’s immune system severely damages the lungs, which likely results in death. A severe "cytokine storm" can flood and clog the lung's alveoli with infection-fighting cells, making it so oxygen can no longer be properly absorbed by the body.

Not all investigators agree with the "cytokine storm" interpretation. Studies of the time to death from the onset of influenza symptoms during the 1918 pandemic in military and civilian populations find a median time to death of 7–11 days. These data support the idea that the deaths may be predominantly due to bacterial superinfection after the acute phase of influenza. The distribution of time from onset of illness to death due to influenza-related pneumonia in 1918 are quite similar compared with time to death due to untreated pneumococcal pneumonia in the 1920s and 1930s. Other studies suggest a more complext course, in which the synergistic effects of infection with the virus, aberrant immune responses to the virus, and secondary opportunistic bacterial pneumonias were severe and often fatal.

Good morning! Just announced on WXNT radio, 61 confirmed cases in Indiana now. I heard the tail end of the announcement as I was getting out of my car to go into work. I believe this is the first, new case total, announced for the week here. I still haven't found anything relevant to the up-coming Indy 500, and what concerns (if any!) our state officials have given the fact that there wll be thousands of people pouring into the city here very shortly.Maybe I'm the only one who thinks this should be a concern....
