WOW That is spreading really fast! At least we are getting some truth out of Japan. I think they will be the ones that give us a clear picture on how fast this is moving.

Even though or MSM and TPTB will be trying to make us look at it through rose colored glases. They will probably state it is an isolated incident in Japan and it is under control.

Nothing to see here, move along back to the American Idol finals and the Presidents speach at Notre Dame. Blah de blah blah blah.

Japan confirms 93 swine flu cases

KOBE, Japan (AFP) – Japan's number of confirmed swine flu cases soared to 93 at the weekend, officials said late Sunday, amid fears hundreds more are already infected in the country's crowded cities.

Most of the infections were reported among high school and college students in and around the western cities of Kobe and Osaka, where authorities ordered more than 1,000 schools and kindergartens to stay shut on Monday.

The island nation until Friday thought it had kept the virus at bay, after detecting four people who tested positive when they flew in from North America and immediately quarantining them along with about 50 fellow passengers.

But since the government Saturday confirmed the first domestic case, a 17-year-old male Kobe student who had not been overseas, the number of confirmed infections has risen quickly in the two urban areas.

Late Sunday officials in Hyogo prefecture, which includes Kobe, told AFP 53 cases had been confirmed, while Osaka prefecture reported 36, raising the national toll to 93, including the four overseas infections.

Swine Flu forces city officials to close 5 more schools in Queens
May 17th 2009, 3:11 PM

Five more schools inside three buildings in Queens will be closed Monday after dozens more students came down with flu symptoms, officials said Sunday.

The closures by the city's Department of Health bring the total number of schools currently shuttered because of swine flu to 11, meaning thousands of kids will miss class this week.

None of the newly announced schools have confirmed cases of the illness, but enough students were feeling sick that officials thought closures were necessary to halt the spread.

"We are now seeing a rising tide of flu in many parts of New York City," said New York City Health Commissioner Thomas R. Frieden. "With the virus spreading widely, closing these and other individual schools will make little difference in transmission throughout New York City, but we hope will help slow transmission within the individual school communities.

AR Officials Investigate Possible Swine Flu Death
posted 05/17/09 1:53 pm

Little Rock - The Pulaski County Coroner’s office tells Channel 7 news they are investigating the death of a man as a possible swine flu fatality. Officials say they have not confirmed the exact cause of the man’s death, yet, but they are taking the necessary steps to determine if it is indeed a result of the H1N1 virus.

State health officials reported Friday there are at least six cases of swine flu here in Arkansas. That includes four National Guard airmen visiting from Nevada and New Jersey, a school-aged girl in Lawrence County, and a case in Saline County.

Anne Wright is the communications director for the Arkansas Department of Health. She says that, at this point, they are not confirming the cause of death. But if it is determined to be swine flu, the department will launch an investigation into how the man could have contracted the virus and if he he could have passed the disease onto others.

Wright says even if it is confirmed as a swine flu death, there is no reason for Arkansans to panic and that it could be an isolated incident.

You make one post on each of the swine flu threads.......then post telling everyone that intel is being restricted on these threads so email me..........and you post your email address which is a redflag right out of the gate.....

So what is your game plan here attempting to get members to email you when there has been no restriction of intel being with held here on the threads......?

ATS definitely won't go down. If you want to help spread the word just direct people to this forum to help spread the word that way. All current info from many different sources is posted here. You asking people to email you is kind of bizarre and will make a lot of members suspicious.

When replying to threads on ATS under the reply box ATS has this message warning people not to post private info. Good advice.

Please do not post your own personal information. You should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit here can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit, and may remove it at our discretion.

I am LOVING some of the avatars people!!!

I am just in shock that there has been literally nothing on the news all day long regarding the flu...TV has been on in the background (rare but I've been working on a project) and it's obvious that although the numbers and incidents continue to alarmingly grow,it's dead-calm in lala land.

As always,my personal thanks to those that seek the truth so relentlessly and share so graciously...helps a lot!
