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:

So now the US count on deaths is at 16.

Going UP 103.

MEXICO CITY, April 26 (Reuters) - The death toll in Mexico from an outbreak of a new type of swine flu has risen to 103 people, Health Minister Jose Angel Cordova said on Sunday.

Well after 4 hours in emergency room tonight with three-year-old, I learned a few things:
1. A lot of calls from people wondering if they should have child brought in for testing because of flu-like symptoms--some staff just laugh about it.

2. Young teenagers being brought in coughing up a storm, sitting right next to babies and pregnant women and no masks are given and no attempt at any isolation whatsoever.

3. I came in with flu-like symptoms for daughter and none of the staff seems to worry about being infected. They do not wear masks and I did not even see them use hand sanitizer after working in our room or others. Note it is possible, but I did not see it.

4. ER doctor had no plans to test for flu until I mentioned I was in education. She did test for flu and many other things. Five different tests--the most they have ever done when I brought in my kids for pneumonia (several times in past). Blood, urine, nasal, throat, and x-rays.

Flu came back negative, though I suppose it is slightly possible it could be a false negative. Positive for pneumonia. Have students at school with cases.

“It’s Not Flu as Usual” Brochure

What A Pandemic Flu Could Mean To Your Business
Each winter, the flu kills approximately 36,000-40,000 Americans, hospitalizes more than 200,000, and costs the U. S. economy over $10 billion in lost productivity and direct medical expenses.
Bad as that is, health experts are now warning about a far more lethal kind of flu -- a pandemic flu that could kill over half a million in the U.S., hospitalize more than 2 million, and cost our economy a staggering $160 – $675 billion.
A pandemic flu will spread rapidly and easily from person to person, affecting all age groups. It will cause illness in a high proportion of those infected. Health officials are concerned that the current avian "bird" flu which is circulating widely could mutate to a new strain of flu that humans have no natural immunity against -- the World Health Organization has said that a bird flu pandemic could infect 25-30 percent of the world's population. With that much of the population and workforce affected, a pandemic flu could disrupt your business -- perhaps even force it to close down for a time.
 Prepare for a pandemic flu in order to maintain business continuity.
 Help protect employees’ health.
 Work with health officials to minimize disruption.

It is a "crucial step" for manufacturers to start large-scale production of a virus against the H1N1 strain, they said.

reply to post by kenton1234

The memo from McGaw, who is DHS’ acting assistant secretary for the private sector, also said: “U.S. Customs and Coast Guard Officers assist in the enforcement of quarantine orders. Other DOJ law enforcement agencies including the U.S. Marshals, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives may also enforce quarantines. Military personnel are not authorized to engage in enforcement.”

Not the Military eh? I'm sure that was changed by Bush recently.

Interesting question is if you are confined to a hospital isolation ward for a week or two, who pays for the bills?


Have you read Protocol 36

From another HX link:

"The situation has become so dire that Mayor Michael Bloomberg has asked people who believe they may be infected with the H1N1 virus not to visit an emergency room unless they cannot drink liquids and are becoming dehydrated or have become so sick they cannot walk more than a few steps without passing out.

We suspect His Honor cringed when he gave that advice, but the truth is the emergency rooms are now operating beyond capacity. Since in most cases swine flu symptoms are mild, it may be better to stay at home than sit for hours in a crowded emergency room.

The outbreak, coupled with the closing of two hospitals, has affected every aspect of healthcare in Queens. It takes longer now to get an ambulance and longer for ambulance crews to release a patient. When ambulances cannot respond quickly, people die.

The burden on emergency rooms means there are fewer doctors, nurses and technicians to care for admitted patients."

WOW!! What can I say. So, if I lived in NY, I should not have taken daughter to emergency room? She had flu-like symptoms which ended up as pneumonia. She has asthma and when I brought her in T. nurse was surprised on how high her heart rate was and exclaimed it was a good thing I brought her in. Hmmm... so those reports which show the US is prepared for a pandemic---hmmmmm.....
