Many Swine Flu Cases Have No Fever
May 12 2009
www.nytimes.com...

Many people suffering from swine influenza, even those who are severely ill, do not have fever, an odd feature of the new virus that could increase the difficulty of controlling the epidemic, said a leading American infectious-disease expert who examined cases in Mexico last week.

Fever is a hallmark of influenza, often rising abruptly to 104 degrees at the onset of illness. Because many infectious disease experts consider fever the most important sign of the disease, the presence of fever is a critical part of screening patients.

But about a third of the patients at two hospitals in Mexico City where the American expert, Dr. Richard P. Wenzel, consulted for four days last week had no fever when screened, he said.

“It surprised me and my Mexican colleagues, because the textbooks say that in an influenza outbreak the predictive value of fever and cough is 90 percent,” Dr. Wenzel said by telephone from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, where he is chairman of the department of internal medicine.

Very interesting...and glad that info is getting out there because I am sure there are lots of people who think if they don't have a fever they don't have it, which isn't good because they will be out in the community.

What no fever
That is an interesting piece of information, this deserves some investigating. I wonder how many people that actually had/have this flu aren't being tested because they don't have a fever ?

i have a couple misgivings about this flu

first they said it was a hybrid.
then they said - no we are wrong its just swine.
then i read an article a couple of days ago that suggested "this particular hybrid strain can mutate" - back to hybrid

then i read a pakastani was amonst the first dead in mexico
then nothing more about it

I am suspect that virologists who spend their whole lives on the subject are suddenly confounded to the point of changing their minds?

something is afoot -

That's because you do such a good job at getting the itntel for us to assimilate


If i had my own army you would be my number one 5 star general in charge of Recon


Good find on this

www.google.com...



Gibbs, who studies the evolution of viruses, said the genes of the novel H1N1 look like they evolved at a faster rate than would have been expected if the virus had just emerged from pigs.



While that could mean the virus spent some time evolving in another, intermediary host - Gibbs listed birds or marine mammals as possibilities - the unusual evolutionary speed could also have been the product of the virus was being grown in eggs in a laboratory, he said.



That raises the spectre of human error resulting in the accidental release of the virus, Gibbs suggested Tuesday from his home in Canberra.


Nice to know there are others that at least explore the chance that this is man made, or altered.



"We don't see evidence that there's accelerated evolution indicating that there would have been a new host that the virus was introduced into, be it eggs or any other host," said Dr. Nancy Cox, head of the influenza division at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta.


As if they would really say anything different.


Gavin Smith, a researcher trying to trace the origins of the new virus, criticized Gibbs for publicizing his claim before publishing his analyses in a peer-reviewed journal.




Peer review would have allowed people knowledgeable about flu virus evolution to kick the tires, so to speak, of this theory and then decide whether alarms needed to be sounded.


In laymens terms, it would have allowed them to come up with a believable cover story.


"I think it's irresponsible to be making those conclusions before anything has been sent for peer-review," said Smith, a virologist and evolutionary biologist at the University of Hong Kong.



Again, he didn't give us enough time for a cover story.



"Obviously they are claims that would need to be investigated. And I just worry that it's going to divert attention away from more pressing issues."


He just worries that it will attract attention to government and government scientists

Hx-

I read about Obama's investments in the biotech company, and posted a similar articl on another thread about his having made the stock purchases in '07. Please correct me if I'm mistaken in the timeframe, but it seems that not only WHO and CDC had advanced knowledge of this outbreak, but so did Obama whilst campaigning. His choice of biotech stock is rather glaring- it's not as if he bought Genetech or something- he bought shares in a small start-up biotech that SPECIFICALLY dealrs with influenza outbreaks, vaccine manufacture, etc. I can only deduce that this is an event that was well known by all of those in a position to profit from it (not to mention Roche investments, etc,).

Peace
