Iranian TV: Swine Flu - A Zionist/American Conspiracy
I guess this is a recorded news program feom Iran on may 6 but its the first time ive seen it thought I would post it for others.
CHEYENNE -- Health officials say additional details on confirmed swine flu cases won't protect the public.
Information on where infected individuals work or go to school could make others fearful of specific places when everyone needs to be cautious, said Dr. Tracy Murphy, state epidemiologist with the Wyoming Department of Health.
"Now we want people to focus on the fact that swine flu is in Wyoming," he added. "We can't predict which office, school or town will get it next."
"It's not that important to know which specific case was due to the new (flu) strain or the seasonal strain," Murphy said. "Now what's important is how much flu activity we're having. It gives us the ability to track without testing every case."
"The majority (of positive flu samples) are now coming back positive for swine flu," he added. "If you've got a positive (flu test), it's probably swine flu. Whether it's confirmed or not doesn't matter."
Two more deaths linked to swine flu — both of adults in their 40s — were reported by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene on Wednesday, bringing the total number of H1N1-related fatalities in the city to seven.
The department said that six of the seven people who have died — including Mitchell Wiener, the Queens assistant principal, who was the first swine-flu death in the city — had underlying conditions, including obesity, that can interfere with normal breathing. The seventh death is still under investigation. The city will not release the underlying medical conditions, citing medical confidentiality.
However, the department did release an analysis that showed some 80 percent of the more than 300 people hospitalized with swine flu since mid-April have one or more underlying conditions that put them at risk. Asthma, which affects 10 percent of New York City children, is by far the most common underlying condition, some 41 percent of the more those hospitalized. The analysis also found that about 18 percent of hospitalized are under 2 years of age, 13 percent have a compromised immune system, and 12 percent having heart disease. Other risk factors include pregnancy, obesity, diabetes, kidney problems, blood disorders, emphysema, and liver problems. A more detailed analysis of hospitalized patients’ health histories is still being conducted.
NURSES handed out face masks on Tuesday as preparations for a pandemic kicked into high gear in St. Theresa Point First Nation over heightened concern a severe flu will continue to infect healthy children and adults.
The isolated fly-in community of 3,200 could be the first in Manitoba to be hit hard by a suspected swine flu outbreak, confirming the "worst fears" of First Nations leaders who warned impoverished aboriginal reserves are ill-equipped to deal with widespread infections.
Chief David McDougall confirmed Tuesday an additional five children were flown to Winnipeg Monday night, bringing the total number of St. Theresa Point residents hospitalized to 12. In the last week, two pregnant women were medevaced to intensive care along with five other children who fell ill with severe flu symptoms.
One woman lost her child as a result of the illness. McDougall said lab tests have confirmed a strain of influenza is circulating, but there's still no word on whether the virus is the human swine flu that's surfaced worldwide.
A Macomb County woman died Tuesday of complications from H1N1 influenza, state health officials said today. She is Michigan’s first confirmed death from what was previously called swine flu. She had underlying health issues.

The point I'm trying to make is that officials and MSM have seemed to distort the truth in order to prevent panic, to prevent over-load of the health care system, to try to save an already troubled economic situation, etc.

Yes, I see your point about families in denial, and agree with you, to an extent, about the chronic and underlying...
But, your points still don't make the case for why officials/MSM say COD:H1N1 initially and then later flip-flop.
Can you explain that?
I'm open to listening, albeit a little skeptical...
