Your observations are correct...they are intentionally speaking out of both sides of the mouth. It is the classic 'doublespeak' technique...

Why are they doing this? One certainty, come time when the vaccination is ready, they are going to at lease request, if not make mandatory, a new flu vaccine for children. To the extent of my knowledge, that is unprecedented. The flyer is just a prep...

US Centers for Disease Control: Swine flu Director's Update Brief, 22 May 2009

If you read this pdf file from the CDC on page 15 you will notice a graph on school closings it says a lot. On 4-28 the CDC annouced close schools for one week when theres a case of swine flu and there was 104 school closings effecting 55,000 children. On 5-1 they said close schools for 2 weeks and there was 433 schools closed and 245,449 children effected. On 5-5 they said stop closing schools there was 726 schools closed effecting 468,282 children. BY 5-15 only 5 schools were closed then they started closing again on 5-21 there were 60 schools closed even though CDC says don't close the schools. 5-18 is when the school principal in New York died 5-14 is when he was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. So I believe the schools looked at that case and said !@#$ the CDC close the schools if there is swine flu they also had attendace in some schools as low as 50%.

Ditto. Agreed.



Y'all know money is more important than children's lives


But my point wasn't the closing of the schools...I, for one, think we should have "locked down" a bit more earlier--especially in the border state of cal.

My point is for US TPTB to just be a little honest with us some of the time and let us know the truth...I mean come on, alerting us on the community level but smoothing things over at the top???

I know...dream on

Illinois swine flu deaths: Suburban woman is state's 2nd death
Victim lived in northwest Cook County
Tribune staff report
May 28, 2009
A second Illinois resident from the Chicago area has died of swine flu, according to the state Health Department.

The woman who died had lived in northwest suburban Cook County, a spokeswoman for the Cook County Health Department said. She had other significant medical conditions that increased vulnerability to the H1N1 swine flu virus, the state Health Department said in a news release. Because of confidentiality and "out of respect for the family," the department said it will not release details about the case.

More BS hiding the risk undrer "other medical conditions." More double talk IMO.

Anyone have any of these underlying conditions that can trigger death?

In announcing this week that swine flu had been implicated in the deaths of two more New Yorkers, the city’s health commissioner, Dr. Thomas R. Frieden, added a by-now familiar caveat: Both of them, he said, had “underlying conditions.”

He went on to enumerate a list of conditions that could aggravate the effects of swine flu and that characterize a large portion of New York’s population: diabetes, asthma, heart disease, lung disease, a weakened immune system and, possibly, obesity.

“Many, many people share the same underlying causes that my husband had, and if he’s at risk, many people are at risk,” said Bonnie Wiener, the widow of Mitchell Wiener, 55, the first New Yorker to die of swine flu, on May 17.

She disputed the city’s assertion that underlying conditions were a factor in his death. “He was overweight and he was taking medicine for high blood pressure,” she said. “How many people 50 and above don’t?”

“We were surprised by the frequency of obesity among the severe cases that we’ve been tracking,” Dr. Anne Shuchat, the centers’ director of immunization and respiratory disease, said at a May 19 press conference.[/]

A very interesting read in the MSM. NY times

(in NY)
Hospitals that normally get about 200 visits to the emergency room each day are getting 2,000 per day, he said, and more than 25,000 people have gone to emergency rooms over the past month. The numbers are highest in Queens, but are increasing in Brooklyn and, to a lesser extent, in the Bronx and Manhattan.

Over the last five days, he said, 20 to 25 people a day have been hospitalized with the flu. Before the weekend, the city had recorded only 57 hospitalizations for flu during the entire preceding 30 days.

Crooks and Liars blog, I have read it many times, the blog links to the NYT article....

from Crooks and Liars....


Officials have cited underlying conditions as a factor in all four deaths in the city, but they have not revealed those conditions, citing medical confidentiality.


From the New York Times...


Both patients had underlying health conditions that put them more at risk, he said. He added that he could not say officially whether the flu had caused their deaths until autopsies were finished. Both died on Friday.

Breaks ones heart... nothing on the WF site. Will need to visit a physical address.

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (ABC 4 News) - He died a week ago, but tonight, the family of Marcos Sanchez, Utah's only Swine Flu death, says they can’t afford to bury him.

To raise money, they're washing cars outside of the Smith's store at 4000 West and 4700 South all to help lay their brother, nephew and son to rest.

“He had a lot of love for people just you know, he'd do anything for anybody,” said Michelle Sanchez, Marcos’ aunt.

The Sanchez family arrived outside that store at 10:30 Wednesday morning, and they plan to stay until about 7:00 Wednesday night.

The family said they still need about $3,000 dollars.

If you can help, go to the car wash, or you can donate money in Marcos' name at Wells Fargo.

Deaths linked to swine flu hit 102 worldwide

PHOENIX (AP) — A fourth person in Arizona has died from complications of swine flu — pushing the world's death toll to 102.
Arizona Department of Health Services spokeswoman Laura Oxley confirmed on Wednesday the death of a girl from Pima County. The county did not give her age but said the child was not yet in her teens.
Illinois officials also announced a swine flu-related death Wednesday of a woman from Cook County. They said the woman had other medical problems that might have made her illness more severe.
The deaths reported Wednesday pushed the total number of fatalities linked to the virus to 16 in the U.S. and 102 worldwide. The deaths of two New Yorkers were linked Tuesday to swine flu.
The virus has sickened more than 12,000 people.
On the Net:
CDC: www.cdc.gov...


So now the US count on deaths is at 16.

I was wondering about this, and the stronger immune response pregnancy brings...

Among 20 pregnant women in the United States confirmed to have been infected with the new flu virus, three required hospitalization and one who had started anti-viral therapy 13 days after onset died.

2 of 5 pregnant women developed complications, including spontaneous abortion. Or 40 out of 100.
