If that's true, you can bet we will never hear about it.


21 May 2009 -- As of 06:00 GMT, 21 May 2009, 41 countries have officially reported 11 034 cases of influenza A(H1N1) infection, including 85 deaths.

WHO update 35

The fatatlities seem to be coming quicker. Also in this article, the young man from Utah is said to have been unhealthy and overweight, but yesterday he was said to have no underlying health conditions.


Marcos Antonio Sanchez went from being an outgoing 21-year-old to Utah's first swine flu fatality in less than a week.
...
In neighboring Arizona, health officials said Wednesday a 13-year-old boy from Tucson also has died with swine flu.

US deaths hit double digits

Children who receive the flu vaccine are three times more likely to be hospitalized for the flu



ScienceDaily (May 20, 2009) — The inactivated flu vaccine does not appear to be effective in preventing influenza-related hospitalizations in children, especially the ones with asthma. In fact, children who get the flu vaccine are more at risk for hospitalization than their peers who do not get the vaccine, according to new research that will be presented on May 19, at the 105th International Conference of the American Thoracic Society in San Diego


Part of the equation....yes I believe....the human is the best host to incubate.

Yes, kudos for the guy then, but look at what's being reported now:

Mother of Utah's first swine flu fatality says she 'didn't want him to suffer anymore'
By MIKE STARK , Associated Press

Last update: May 21, 2009 - 4:49 AM

SALT LAKE CITY - Marcos Antonio Sanchez went from being an outgoing 21-year-old to Utah's first swine flu fatality in less than a week.

Last week, Sanchez enjoyed swimming and lived with his girlfriend. Then on Saturday, he checked into a hospital, vomiting blood and burning with fever. His lungs shut down on Tuesday.

The next day, his mother made the agonizing decision to take her son off life-support, pushing the nation's death toll to 10 people.

"I knew he was suffering," Christina Huitron told KSL-TV. "I don't know how he was feeling, but I just knew I had to do it because he was passing away slowly anyways, and I didn't want him to suffer anymore."

Dr. David Sundwall, executive director of the Utah Department of Health, said Sanchez was overweight and had chronic medical conditions, including respiratory problems, that put him at risk.

"This is not a person who was overall genuinely healthy," Sundwall said.

It's like a bait-n-switch going on with the MSM and the govt. I think they've tried to do this with every fatality

I wish some reporter would have the stones to throw yesterday's article in his face and ask him what it took to change his mind!! I am so tired of being lied to and expected to fall for it like the majority of the public. I can read. My memory span is pretty clear for the last 24 hours. At least give me the credit of keeping your story straight from one day to the next!

Welcome back!

Just in time, too. It looks like we are all safe now:


"At the national level, we're seeing that the percent of visits [to doctors and hospitals] for influenza-like illness is starting to turn down," Dr. Anne Schuchat, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's interim deputy director for science and public health program, said during an afternoon teleconference. "That's a good sign. It's consistent with the idea that the worst may be over."

Swine Flu Subsiding

Maybe everyone just got tired of trying to go to packed hospitals only to be told their case isn't serious enough to be tested for H1N1?

Hx3, I hate hockey.......Your like a blood hound, you always have your noise in some good crap......



At this time, the City of St. Louis Department of Health has recommended that the school remain open because NO other cases of flu-like symptoms have been reported in the school and NO other positive cases of the H1N1 flu virus have been diagnosed.


From your link on the St Louis schools..........So you are to tell me that St Louis is a city that gets to claim one of the very few deaths in the country of the pig and the HUGE school system only has one case reported..???

Complete denial and lies...........

Hey Love, good to see you! I thought about it, and decided that I could not let this thread go! I see too much conspiracy behind this flu outbreak, and sincerely believe that it is the mother of all flu conspiracies! What better way to continue the "Probe" than with Omega Man!

 


Found this today, an interesting factor that affectst the severity of this novel flu in humans!


U.S. scientists say they've found the ability to mount an immune response to the H1N1, or swine flu, virus is significantly compromised by arsenic exposure.

Researchers at the Marine Biological Laboratory and Dartmouth Medical School said such arsenic exposure can commonly occur through drinking contaminated well water....
....."One thing that did strike us, when we heard about the recent H1N1 outbreak, is Mexico has large areas of very high arsenic in their well water, including the areas where the flu first cropped up," Hamilton said. We don't know that the Mexicans who got the flu were drinking high levels of arsenic, but it's an intriguing notion that this may have contributed."

The study is reported in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives.


Bingo!

A deadly strain of superbug MRSA could kill thousands if coupled with swine flu, experts have warned.

Swine flu combined with superbug could kill thousands


The drug-resistant infection triggers a form of pneumonia in those weakened by viruses such as swine flu and kills half its victims in under 72 hours.

A report in health journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases said the infection could raise the death risk among potential swine flu victims. It can live in the nose or throat and pose no danger – but if the carrier is weakened by a virus like flu it can cause the lung condition.

This thread addresses another article that presents what you describe, and more data:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

The work also implies that certain parts of the US, including the SW, Upper Midwest, Florida and some states in New England have elevated levels of arsenic in well water--I doubt that may mean much right now--probably not too many depend on well water, but it would be interesting to see if there is a connection over time
