Worldwide confirmed cases approach 6,000 as A/H1N1 engulfs more
2009-05-13 11:08:15
news.xinhuanet.com...

BEIJING, May 13 (Xinhua) -- The worldwide confirmed A/H1N1 cases have reached around 5,914 as two more countries in Asia and Europe reported their first known cases on Tuesday.

Thailand and Finland reported two cases each after Cuba earlier confirmed its first case in a Mexican student in Havana, bringing the total number of countries with confirmed cases to 33.

In the United States, which has surpassed Mexico with most known cases, Tuesday reported that a total of 3,009 have tested positive of the virus in 45 of its 50 states, with three deaths.

The number of confirmed cases on Monday was 2,600 in 44 states, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The increase showed that the ongoing outbreak of A/H1N1 influenza continues to expand in the United States. CDC officials have said they expect the A/H1N1 flu to spread to all 50 states, to cause severe disease and more deaths.

Dr. Wenzel said that an unusual feature of the Mexican epidemic, which complicates the understanding of it, was that “in recent months five different influenza viruses have been circulating in Mexico simultaneously.”


Have you heard this stated anyplace before, or is it something they're just now saying ? I'd like to know what the other four flus were. If they actually had 5 different strains going around maybe that's how this one ended up with such a large mixture.


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.



While many people with severe cases went on to develop fever after they were admitted, about half of the milder cases did not; nearly all patients had coughing and malaise, Dr. Wenzel said.


I wonder if any of these patients that did not run a fever actually contracted the flu weeks or months before seeking attention. Maybe they had it previously and ran a fever when they first had it, but didn't seek medical attention, but the virus stayed in their system and continued to cause problems and that's why they sought medical attention.

I've heard of at least 3 different strains...4 or 5 is higher than I'd read, but, is entirely possible...and would make pinning a definite diagnosis a bit tougher...

H1N1...H2N3...?...can't remember the other mentioned right now...Hmmm


I remember seeing mention of the H2 variety in one of the prior Canadian Samples...connection? Hmmm and now "they" are comparing this to the '57 outbreak?

"It's been very troublesome for her father and for me," said McCall. "We've been having to take off work and also to devote some time to ask questions of the department of health and the school district about why this policy is in place."


Now i fully understand that it is hard for many parents to be able to take time off of work when their child is ill, but honestly this woman is complaining because her and her husband had to actually ask some questions


I guess she has no idea that this thing is contagious and they are trying to prevent it from being passed to the whole school

I think they're simply comparing this to the 57' pandemic to calm people's fears. I'm not putting any stock in that until they get their numbers on the right track, too many inconsistencies right now concerning the numbers. Also the 57' pandemic claimed the lives of mainly the elderly, while this flu claims mainly young healthy people like the 1918' pandemic.

Oh I know...and I'm not inferring anything at this point, only the possible H2N3 connection with the Canadian samples...

I just found that article a "Tad" informative, putting some past reference out there...


The '57 was listed as H2N2...not H2N3...Hmmm...

@ phoenixs1: Intriguing...another sickness...coinciding with the temp drop Hmmm...body "see's" the virus attacking and lowers temp???


Edit: Strange...this thread is usually "Fairly" quiet, but, the "Bacon" thread is really strange quiet tonight...Hmmm

This temperature difference in people is making it really hard to figure out what's goin on here. Seems some get the fever and some have a drop in temperature


I don't know what was goin around a couple months ago, but i ran a high fever for about five days nothing would bring it down, then after it went down i got the really bad stuff with my lungs. I haven't really been able to shake it since, (the thing with my lungs) it goes away only to come back again, and i keep getting these days when i feel really bad and drained can't stay awake (like the past couple of days ) and i feel hot but when i take my temp it's 97.2
This whole thing is very confusing

Chise...I had that flu in February...fever for a few days, then bad chest and cough that lasted for weeks, and lingered for weeks more. But, if your temp is dropped and you are feeling fluey, there's a chance you've now picked up this one....hopefully you wake feeling all better in the morning and it's just leftovers from the last flu, but I think you ought to watch yourself. I'll keep my fingers crossed you don't have swine flu!

That is strange phoenixs1, I haven't had even a cold in 20 years and this Feb I also was knocked down with a cough (no fever, no chills or any other symptoms). It was a dry painful cough for 1 week, then 3 more weeks of hoarking phlem.

Glad you are better again also.

I did not react in any way, shape or form to this H1N1 human condition test either. I refused to allow myself to even think about it.

I don't need any news agency to tell me to wash my hands often either, I do that enough as is.

You take care and please get some rest, or at least re-gen


Thanks for all your hard work


Goodnight
