U.S. Media Loses Interest in Swine Flu, May 21, 2009

The U.S., for now, has moved on from the so-called “swine” flu, but much of the rest of the world continues to apply measures to stem the spread of the H1N1 virus and drug companies rush to bring a vaccine to the market.

The mainstream media in the U.S. has turned its attention away from the swine flu and redirected its focus to the economy, crime and American Idol.

This despite the fact that confirmed cases continue to rise on the east and west coasts and reports that a H1N1 vaccine isn’t due for several more weeks.

Fresh outbreaks of the virus are being reported in the northeast region of the United States, centered around the greater New York City area...


epicanthus.net...

Some of the Asian pop are thinking the Americans are crazy...and rightfully so, I'm afraid

It seems that...putting it in laymans terms, the vaccine for the typical flu that has been circulating for a while causes complications with this new novel flu virus, making the new flu more lethal to those who have had a previous flu vaccine.

Well it's about dang time !!! Welcome home Omega
Very glad you decided to return


You can compete with anyone


Today we have a grand total of 873 cases in Illinois.
Chicago 387, Cook county 269, total for Cook county 656 confirmed cases. A one day increase of 79 cases, 67 of those in Cook county.

Well i guess by monday we'll be at or over 1,000 confirmed cases
but hey no reason we should be worried right



Edited to add, We get our water from lake Michigan so no arsenic for us unless it's also in the lake.

Sorry, but no one can throw yesterday's article in anyone's face because they have already changed that one as well



I don't know how they did it, but when you click on this link from your post.. Salt Lake Tribune , it brings you to an article that says this....



Sanchez tested positive for the new flu but an autopsy is being performed to pinpoint his cause of death, since he suffered from "several" underlying health conditions, according to public health officials



She said her son had sleep apnea, but she wasn't aware he had other illnesses, as hospital and public health officials have stated


And when you try to post the link it's not the same as yours it's this instead....www.sltrib.com...

I'm pretty sure his own mother would've known if he had "several" underlying health conditions


I honestly don't know why reporters waste their time, they report something and someone comes right behind them and changes it to say what they want it to say.

I don't know if it's because i did it while editing, but it wouldn't let me copy your link as a link
so just go back and use your original link and you'll see what i'm talking about.

I noticed that, too! From now on, any article I link to with information that might change, I am saving to my hard drive. I think this "underlying conditions" thing is going to backfire on the health community and the media. When enough people start complaining that their family members were perfectly fine before the flu, no one will trust either establishment.

Basically what they're saying is that children under the age of 18 yrs of age have not been exposed to an A(H1N1) flu and have no antibodies capable of fighting it.

While 6-9 % of adults between the ages of 18 and 64 yrs of age have been exposed to an A(H1N1) flu and have antibodies that can help fight it.

And 33% of adults over the age of 60 yrs old have been exposed to an A(H1N1) flu and have antibodies to fight it.

They are also saying that a vaccine from the seasonal flu will not produce any antibodies that are capable of fighting this strain of A(H1N1) flu.


So in a nutshell the vaccines that are available to us now offer no protection, so they need to make a new vaccine and they're trying to scare us into accepting the vaccine


Hope that helps.

Of course we know that the media update their outlets to get more hits via different slants, angles, etc. but I think a couple of extra, more manipulative things are at work here:

1. Like you've addressed, they are trying their best to claim "underlying conditions" when cases become severe/fatal (i.e. at the least, back-pedaling or at the most, outright distorting the truth/lying) and consistent in asserting all other cases are "mild" in setting/supporting their agendas

and

2. They are manipulating their stories/outlets when they find that people (some on ATS!) are "calling them out" on their inconsistencies. I explore a lot of threads here and there are just a few too many examples for it to be simply coincidental. It's akin to censorship or on the other hand, *crazymaking*--what they are doing. This is only one instance but the OP and posters called them here:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

The journalists are the puppets of the MSM, who are the puppets of others with agendas, i.e. CDC, WHO, who are the puppets of???

What do you think?

Great find


And they've known about this deadly interaction between any flu and and the CA-MRSA for over 4 years already and haven't done anything to prevent it or warn the public about it especially since this sounds exactly like what is killing people with the swine flu.


The main presentation on pneumonia caused by CA-MRSA was by Jeffrey Hageman from the CDC.[2] The report included 17 cases of community-acquired pneumonia reported from 9 states in the 2003-2004 influenza season



The median age was 21 years (range, 8 months to 62 years). Twelve were previously healthy; 16 required hospitalization, including 13 hospitalized in the intensive care unit; 8 required intubation; and 6 required chest tubes for drainage of pleural collections. There were 5 deaths (29%).



The study authors conclude that pneumonia in previously healthy persons due to CA-MRSA usually occurs in association with influenza and is emerging as a potentially important disease that may require modification of the current guidelines of empirical antibiotic treatment.


cme.medscape.com...




TORONTO, May 20 -- Pneumonia associated with community-acquired methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) often appears after a bout of influenza-like illness , Atlanta researchers said



Based on two case studies and a literature review, the researchers concluded that the standard treatment for community-acquired pneumonia will probably be "inappropriate



In addition, clinicians may find -- as the researchers did in the two reported cases -- that patients fail to improve until the addition of a drug geared to toxin suppression, such as clindamycin (Cleocin).



In both cases that Dr. Hidron and colleagues described, the patients presented with shortness of breath, fever, chills, and cough. Both had suffered an influenza-like illness a week before the onset of symptoms.


Sound familiar




The patient began to improve clinically within 48 hours after the addition of clindamycin and was extubated on hospital day 11.



The second patient, a 36-year-old man, was the partner of the first case and was admitted five days later.



The fever persisted and on hospital day seven, clindamycin was added and piperacillin-tazobactam was stopped.



The fever and other symptoms improved within 48 hours of starting clindamycin and the man was discharged after 14 days. He remains in good health.


www.medpagetoday.com...

Maybe that's why they're trying so hard to push this "underlying health conditions" bs. Tryin to save their own butts because they haven't been testing these patients for CA-MRSA and because of that they haven't been giving them the right medicine

This past Tuesday I sent an email to the Public Health Agency of Canada asking them why the confirmed Canadian cases hadn't been updated since Friday. There were no notices or anything stating why there was a lack of updates or even when it would be updated again. The next day (Wednesday) they did update the confirmed cases @ 4pm. I just received an email reply back from PHAC tonight though, I'll post it below. It doesn't offer any new info or anything just thought some people might be interested.

Dear xxxxxx,
You recently wrote to us asking about the updating of the Surveillance page

just three times a week - Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 4 p.m. EDT.

Sometimes I wonder which is worse...the fact that the stories are being changed and manipulated or that they are not being reported on at all. It's good to see ATS'ers catching things and informing others of the half truths and outright lies! In my area, you have to really dig to find anything on H1N1. Our state only updates twice a week, which makes no sense to me, as we were one of the first confirmed with the virus and a very large state.

As far as your question about who are the CDC/WHO puppets of, I can only guess. My instinct tells me big business and big pharm at the same time. To me, it explains why they want to scare people into taking an ineffective drug, while assuring people that it's ok to go to the mall this weekend!

ETA: One more case of manipulation: I have searched this thread and others and cannot find the link I was looking for, but didn't someone post that all cases that did not require a ventilator were being called mild?

WHO chief says world should prepare for severe flu
www.reuters.com...

GENEVA (Reuters) - Countries should be ready for more serious H1N1 infections, and more deaths from the newly-discovered virus, World Health Organization chief Dr. Margaret Chan said on Friday.

"In cases where the H1N1 virus is widespread and circulating within the general community, countries must expect to see more cases of severe and fatal infections," she said. "We do not at present expect this to be a sudden and dramatic jump in severe illness and deaths."

She stressed in closing remarks to the WHO's annual assembly that there was little real difference between the current pandemic alert level of 5 and the highest of 6, and said she would consult experts before deciding to raise it again. "I will be advised by the emergency committee," she said.

Even hospital equipment could be in short supply. In a pandemic, hospitals might not have enough mechanical ventilators — used when patients have severe trouble breathing, Heilpern says.

Up to 80,000 of the nation's 105,000 ventilators are being used for everyday medical care, and nearly all of them are used during a normal flu season, according to a 2007 editorial in The New England Journal of Medicine.

Even if hospitals were able to order more machines, many hospitals don't have enough critical care nurses, respiratory therapists or intensive care doctors to open up more beds in their intensive care units, Heilpern says.

In a pandemic, doctors could be forced to ration ventilators, using them on patients who have the most to gain, such as those who — though severely ill in the short term — are otherwise healthy enough to recover, she says.

Flu victim in critical condition

www.metronews.ca...

A 60-year-old man with influenza A (H1N1), also known as swine flu, and other health problems is on life support at Toronto Western Hospital.

Sources say the man was admitted to hospital more than a week ago and was immediately put on a ventilator.

The man is in critical condition in the intensive care unit at the hospital. It is not known how he contracted the virus.

While the province won’t provide many details, the health minister’s press secretary said the individual’s case of the H1N1 flu virus is “mild” and it is the individual’s underlying health problems that have made him so sick.

“So far, all the cases in Ontario have been mild,” Steve Erwin, spokesperson for David Caplan, said yesterday. “We can’t disclose what the condition of this patient is, but I can tell you ... the underlying condition of the case itself is very serious,” he explained, adding that patient confidentiality prohibits him from elaborating.

Respectfully snipped....

ETA: One more case of manipulation: I have searched this thread and others and cannot find the link I was looking for, but didn't someone post that all cases that did not require a ventilator were being called mild?

[edit on 22-5-2009 by Cameoii]


I think you are referring to one of my earlier posts re Ontario, Canada. A young man was put in ICU with it, then when the Public Health authorities were describing all cases as mild, he and his mother went to the press and said that was crazy, his case was not mild etc.


Leach said the case was characterized as "mild" because the patient did not require ventilation to assist with breathing.

Gale, however, said from his perspective the illness he endured was anything but mild.

"That's crazy,'' he said of the hospital's characterization.
