Secret Service employee in isolation in France w/H1N1

A White House official tells Fox that a female administrative employee with the Secret Service is being treated for swine flu in Normandy, France, and is in "respiratory isolation" and will remain there until "some time next week."
Other government employees who worked closely with the Secret Service employee have been put in a temporary medical quarantine, the official said.
The White House said the employee, who was not identified, is based in Atlanta and flew on a commercial flight to Paris, landing there Tuesday before heading with a team of nearly a dozen other US government employees to Normandy. The employee began showing symptoms of the H1N1 virus (otherwise known as the swine flu) on Thursday and was first treated at a small hospital in Normandy but later transferred to a bigger hospital to be placed in "respiratory isolation."
The other government employees -- described to Fox as part of the Secret Service, the US embassy and White House staff -- have been evaluated and given the anti-viral drug Tamiflu. As a precaution, they were quarantined in their Normandy hotel rooms for 24 hours. That quarantine is due to end late Friday, the official said.
The White House medical staff is in "close contact" with medical officials in Normandy. The official said it is unclear if the Secret Service employee now in respiratory isolation contracted the H1N1 virus in the US or in France.

So it is another secret service member who is sick.

Even a pandemic virus that initially causes mild symptoms in otherwise healthy people can be disruptive, especially under the conditions of today’s highly mobile and closely interdependent societies. Moreover, the same virus that causes mild illness in one country can result in much higher morbidity and mortality in another. In addition, the inherent virulence of the virus can change over time as the pandemic goes through subsequent waves of national and international spread.

Seems no slowing even though it is getting hot now. I wonder is there research on how this virus is staying alive in the heat? I noticed that the CDC put it out there in the recent press release...this virus is spreading still in the warm weather.

Warm weather may not halt swine flu

The data also suggests that the virus may not be slowed by summer temperatures in temperate countries. However, it spreads slowly enough to respond to the "social distancing" measures used in Mexico

Good chart ships!

I'm begining to believe that the warmer weather will only serve as a petrie-dish/incubator for the virus?

I'm noticing a LOT more people down here coughing and's humid and warm and mold-spores are everywhere.LOTS of sick kids...I'm finding that I am avoiding "fun" and simply doing what I need to later in the evening when things are less crowded if possible.
Have been accused of being "reclusive..." Works for me,LOL!

Could it be they are ALLOWING thing to just "take their intended course" here as those "socially preventive measures that Mexico has used are virtually non-exsitant here in the US???

I actually heard the TSA agent ask a guy to "please remove his mask" in the airport the other day...he DID wear it on the plane but couldn't wear in the security line or within their line of sight I guess.

He complied of course but gave them a look that would leveled a smart person.

For the people who live in Ohio.

I've been watching daily 15:00 hour updates on the flu, by county here in Wa. State

But it seems they have

moved to a new strategy for monitoring swine flu (H1N1) and will no longer test all cases. As a result, there will be no daily updates of numbers of probable or confirmed cases by county. Updates will be posted on Friday afternoons at 3:00 p.m., and will include only the total number of hospitalized and fatal cases of lab-confirmed swine flu (H1N1) in Washington.

There has been no update yesterday and now rather than a map with case information by county, there is only a total in print, still as of the 23rd.

CDC has not updated theirs for over a week now as well.

In the meantime,

Canada's swine flu case count rising

Canada's swine flu case count has increased nearly 20 per cent over the past few days, largely due to a rise in cases in Ontario, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada.

As of Friday, there were 1,336 cases in nine provinces and two territories.

That's an increase of 218 cases since Wednesday, when the agency last reported the number of confirmed infections with the H1N1 virus.

The main increase occurred in Ontario, where the count rose by 131 cases to 626.

Quebec reported the second largest increase, up 46 cases to 253.

Wisconsin has most swine flu cases in nation

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin has more confirmed cases of the swine flu than any other state.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday reported 1,430 confirmed cases.
Wisconsin officials say the number of cases here is nothing to worry about. They say the number largely reflects the state's efficiency in testing suspected cases.
Department of Health Services spokesman Seth Boffeli says the Wisconsin cases have been relatively mild.
Nationally, the CDC has reported 8,975 cases of swine flu. Texas is second with 1,403 cases.
Illinois also has widespread testing and is third with 1,002 cases.

Swine flu lockdown plan as PM tested

NEW South Wales' top doctor has been given sweeping new powers to force reluctant swine flu victims into quarantine and shut schools as Prime Minister Kevin Rudd underwent testing for the disease.

State Health Minister John Della Bosca said yesterday he had strengthened NSW Chief Health Officer Kerry Chant's powers for 28 days as the number of confirmed cases in NSW rose by six to 54 and the national tally passed 250.

Mr Della Bosca's announcement came as Prime Minister was tested for swine flu on his return from Singapore yesterday after complaining of a sore throat, The Sunday Telegraph reports.

Mr Rudd and his entourage were kept on the plane for about 20 minutes while they waited for a health official to test the Prime Minister.

Mr Rudd is understood to have complained of a sore throat following his 24-hour trip to Singapore for the Shangri-La Dialogue, an Asia-Pacific defence and security gathering.

SO when someone with authority gets swine flu or fears they caught it the government say the economy is second to health and begin to put some kind of protection up against the crazy spread of this H1N1 virus.

Vic doctors' flu supplies 'running out'

The spread outside Melbourne comes as authorities confirmed an Austin Hospital employee had contracted the virus, and doctors warned they were rapidly running out of equipment to protect themselves from infection.

Australian Medical Association (AMA) Victorian president Dr Harry Hemley said an urgent call had gone out for access to national stockpiles of masks, gowns, gloves and Tamiflu.

'We're running out of the necessary equipment to help protect the staff ... from contracting the swine flu and also we're running out of masks also to protect our patients in the waiting rooms as well,' he said.

'To help limit the spread, it's very important to have that equipment so we're actually calling on the federal government to release their stockpile.'
