The mayor said the assistant principal, Mitch Wiener, may have had pre-existing health problems — but on Friday, Wiener's son Adam said his father had only suffered previously from gout, which he said was unrelated to his current condition. He said his father is now suffering from kidney failure, dehydration and a lung infection.
"I don't know where people got that," Adam Wiener, 23, said Friday morning as he prepared to return to the hospital where his mother and one brother were holding a vigil.The only pre-existing condition he has is gout, which is unrelated to complications he's experienced now."
Adam Wiener said his father had been sick since at least last weekend with flu-like symptoms "but we didn't think anything of it." Then early Wednesday, he said, the family called 911 after his father began "hallucinating and wasn't coherent."

Frieden spearheaded the creation of an intrusive surveillance program for the city’s 530,000 diabetics. The results from routine medical examinations for all diabetics are now automatically forwarded to the DOH, and, along with name, date of birth and address, permanently recorded in a registry open to city bureaucrats. For diabetics who are found to have “elevated” glucose levels, the DOH floods their homes with (unwanted) medical materials and warning letters, and notifies their physicians of their test results.
Frieden seems to take a salacious delight in pushing public policy into people’s bedrooms. The reception room of his office sports a bowl of free condoms -- unique among the city’s health officials. He’s commissioned -- with taxpayer dollars -- New York-themed prophylaxes that, per his suggestion, feature a map of the Manhattan subway system. And, under his tenure, the DOH has spent over $2 million dollars to harangue new moms into breast-feeding their children for at least 6 months -- a city-established “health limit” that essentially ignores the unique needs of individual women and their children.

The above comments describe a serious swine H1N1 outbreak in Queens. This outbreak follows an earlier outbreak in Flushing (see updated map), that was linked to students returning from a trip to Mexico. However, officials had recently offered assurances on the containment of that outbreak.
TextThe swine H1N1 has an avian PB2, which favors growth at high temperatures (41 C), which will offer a distinct advantage over the summer. As seen in the above numbers, the virus spreads easily, especially among students.
The assurances had no basis in fact. An AP report had suggested that as many as 1000 New Yorkers were infected, and the above numbers leave little doubt that the number of cases in orders or magnitude higher.

When Mexico's junior schools reopened on Monday, the authorities inspected every child to see if he or she has any flu-like symptoms. Around 50,000 children were sent home on the first day and asked to see a doctor.
