I don't understand why the WHO won't raise to a Phases 4. Clearly, people all over the globe are not immune to this strain. Who cares if they aren't dying like those in Mexico, the flu can kill any time, anyone, any where. Not to mention that the more it spreads in humans, the higher the chance of another mutation.
WHO states that Phases 3 is


"an animal or human-animal influenza reassortant virus has caused sporadic cases or small clusters of disease in people, but has not resulted in human-to-human transmission sufficient to sustain community-level outbreaks. Limited human-to-human transmission may occur under some circumstances, for example, when there is close contact between an infected person and an unprotected caregiver. However, limited transmission under such restricted circumstances does not indicate that the virus has gained the level of transmissibility among humans necessary to cause a pandemic."

Phase 4 is


"is characterized by verified human-to-human transmission of an animal or human-animal influenza reassortant virus able to cause “community-level outbreaks.” The ability to cause sustained disease outbreaks in a community marks a significant upwards shift in the risk for a pandemic. Any country that suspects or has verified such an event should urgently consult with WHO so that the situation can be jointly assessed and a decision made by the affected country if implementation of a rapid pandemic containment operation is warranted. Phase 4 indicates a significant increase in risk of a pandemic but does not necessarily mean that a pandemic is a forgone conclusion. "

There is definitely human to human transmission and Mexico clearly has a sustained "community outbreak."

Where did you see 100 cases in US? Could you post the link? I have thought that there would be an increase in cases due to pending tests. I'm sure the # will keep rising as labs continue to confirm samples.

If unicorn's can poop Skittles, I know they can also poop a cure. So, the question is, why isn't Obama pooping something similar to Skittles that can cure everyone, or at least have his own unicorn poop them?

Snarkiness off: plucky is worried. Last night on C2C, Katherine Albrecht said that quarantines do not work, the human condition will fight it. She also said when Obama comes out and says "don't worry" it is time to worry.

Up to 200 children at that school reported flu like symptoms and it is expected the rest will be confirmed later. Addition to that, family members have been infected too.

L.A Times are reporting another 11 cases.

omg, possible cases in Spain and France! That is awfully close to home for me!
Yesterday evening my husband was still making fun of me that I was being paranoid and doomthinking again, like he always does, but now even he has a very concerned look on his face and checking the news every hour....
Where is this going to end?

Thanks! My your quick...your fashionable avatar!

I noticed someone has now created an "official thread" on the swine flu...what do you think, should we stay on this thread?
Funny I had no real indication that this would end up being the real thing when I posted the first thread! Now look!

A beta test is what Alex Jones thinks?

Star 4 U!

Thought the Avatar was appropriate, given the current circumstance...


I'm not good at making calls, as in dumping threads, to condense the topic...


This one is up to Pg 20 now, so, I'd guess either keep this open, or, ask a Mod's opinion maybe?

To bad they can't combine threads on the fly or something...


I've noticed that Google map is starting to fill-up with markers...

our predictions of florida , arizona , or new mexico as the next state with a confirmed case were wrong.

i dont know if anyone has posted this but there has been one confirmed case in OHIO.

just heard it from richard besser of the cdc on the white house briefing.

how long until 10 states have a confirmed case? the more people that get this bug the more chances we will see fatalities in the usa.
