One-third of Travis Elementary School pupil missed school Thursday because of a mysterious illness, leaving Houston ISD and city officials scrambling to diagnose the cause.

They suspect a virus is behind the fevers, headaches and stomachaches that sidelined 242 children, including about 80 percent of the third grade at the Heights neighborhood school.

Luke was diagnosed Thursday with Influenza A, a common strain of the flu. While that strain includes the swine flu, officials said the rapid spread and sudden onset of this outbreak suggest it isn’t.


Illness strikes 242 students at HISD Travis Elem.
So, it seems like the second wave may be more gastrointestinal and less respritory related. The article makes this sound totally unrelated, but that makes two schools that had an outbreak of h1n1, then got all better, then had a load of kids out sick with a stomach virus.....hmmm.

it basically says that the confirmed cases (new) are going down since the 'peak' that you see on the charts.

The pages basically break it down by regions/states in mexico.. the age groups.. sex..

typical government propaganda.. I live in Sonora, and there are a lot more confirmed cases by the local health administration than the government is telling the people.

IMHO, it's a useless document.

Was just wondering if they were deaths...

No, those are confirmed cases.

Deaths are listed at I believe 56.. I will have to look again, but it was between 54-56

Exactly the same thing happening here in Spain but apparently they're completely unrelated and "there's a lot of bugs about" so no need to worry

Good Day to all..........I breezed through the post quickly from late yesterday and I guess what stands out except for more cases are the school closings in NY and Houston............Yep the second wave of the virus striking its host is hitting......If this is the virus striking for a second time within the same host then unfortunately we could see some deaths.........

I think we should pay attention to the obituraries for elementry school age kids in NY over the next week..........


One thing I forgot to mention yesterday from my source is concerning the virus in all mammals.........and its good news......well sorta for now.......I asked the question concerning this virus going from mammal to mammal? Remember I reported that a pig farm had been covered up in the media here in the states for human/pig - pig/human transmission..........The answer was it has not mutated to where its affecting all mammals "YET"........but it is something they are watching very closely......

So is it a test of the siren's or a test for the military and police? Why on earth would they be testing them for so long anyway, all you have to do is position a few cops and set them off once! They all go off the cops hear them report back and wallla DONE!
Seems a little excessive considering what those people are getting hit with right now in the new's. There has to be a better way of doing it and they know it.

I thought I had heard of this before they have them in San Fransico too
here is a single page pdf type flyer about them
www.72hours.org...

They are an outdoor warning system. Basically if anything happens they will sound for 5 minutes straight and you are supposed to listen to the tv or radio to find out what is wrong.

Hrmmm I wonder why they went and did that after telling the CDC here in the USA it was okay to say "it was likely" to the Mexican Gov? Something is smelling fishy here about the whole it is and isn't man made thing. Not that it really matters at this point it is out there and growing.

My thoughts exactly. There will be alot of finger pointing and back pedalling on who's fault this virus is, so that we are less aware of the dramatic increase in infected/fatal cases. IMO, it's a feeble attempt to keep us distracted. They figure that a debate over man-made/nature-made will be much juicier to CT than looking to the future of this virus.

According to this article, we are to believe that the parents of 156 children spontaneously decided to keep their well children at home. Despite the fact that most families have both parents working and would have to arrange child care, despite the fact that the only newspaper in Houston has told us repeatedly that this virus is mild, and despite the fact that our kids have already missed far to much school this year and will likely have to go to summer school to take the TAKS test....All I can say is yeah right.

Q ueens Assistant Principal's swine flu not treatable; condition worsening, family by his side



"I believe it to be all caused by swine flu, with infection in his lungs and pneumonia, as well as kidney failure so they can't inject the swine flu medication," Wiener said.


So if your not very sick please stay home and not have contact with people and wash your hands. Once your very sick please call your dr. and make a appointment. I guess they also need to tell people to call the funeral home of there choice as they call the dr.

At least 1 country is taking this seriously and closing a boarder. When will the rest do this? Probably never.

Looks like here we go with round 2. Eco and you were right and many of use have been following this waiting for the other shoe to drop!!

Thanks again for all the great info here and in the other thread!
