China warns of stability threat from H1N1


China's public security ministry has warned police to be on guard against any threats to public order linked to the spread of the H1N1 strain of flu, including the spreading of rumors and price-gouging for drugs.

China has reported 11,722 cases of H1N1 flu, from which 7,231 people have recovered. No one has died in China, though there are six cases listed as serious by the Health Ministry.

But the stability-obsessed government is taking no chances in the world's most populous nation, with its huge disparities between rich and poor and patchy health system.

"The Ministry of Public Security ... demands all security organs pay great attention to the possible effects on social stability from the virus and work hard at stopping the virus and maintaining stability," it said on its website (www.mps.gov.cn).

"Strike hard against rumor mongers, the sale and production of fake, shoddy drugs and equipment, and the driving up of medicine prices," it added in a statement issued late on Friday.

First Russian dies of swine flu


The swine flu pandemic has claimed its first victim in Russia. A leading virologist says a female doctor who had recently returned from Bulgaria has died from the virus.

Medical officials say around 380 people have been diagnosed with swine flu in Russia so far.

In most cases the virus is contracted by tourists who return from the UK, Spain and Bulgaria.

Russian scientists are testing new vaccines against swine flu and a mass inoculation is planned before the end of the year.

The latest report from the World Health Organisation says some 3,500 people have died as a result of catching swine flu worldwide.

Lakeville school loses quarter of students to 'flu-like sickness'


More than one-fourth of the children at a Lakeville elementary school were out sick with flu symptoms Monday as the absentee rate soared from 7 percent Friday to 28 percent yesterday, school officials reported.

Eastview Elementary had 175 reported absences in a student body of 615, Principal Dick Oscarson said. In five cases, parents called the school to say that their children had confirmed cases of the H1N1 virus, also called swine flu.

Lakeville school officials did not plan to cancel classes at Eastview as of Monday afternoon, said Linda Swanson, district spokeswoman. The district has reported the outbreak to the state Health Department and will follow recommended guidelines for dealing with swine flu, she said.

Minneapolis Prepares for Possible H1N1 Outbreak


The city of Minneapolis said Monday it's ready, even if thousands of workers come down with H1N1 flu.

City Health Commissioner, Gretchen Musicant said plans are already in place to hold mass immunization clinics at high schools if necessary.

The city is also stock piling protective gear like masks and gloves and determining what services are essential and which could be sacrificed if thousands get sick.

Nurse lines will likely be set up and a state hotline for people to ask questions about H1N1 is also in the works.

H1N1 closes NKY high school


ALEXANDRIA - After nearly 20 percent of the school called in sick Monday, Bishop Brossart High decided to close school for the rest of this week in hopes of stopping the spread of the H1N1 virus.

The school sent students home at noon Monday and told them not to come back until next Monday.

“We’d already begun to see the numbers rising last week,” said Principal Richard Stewart said. “We were hoping to see a little bit of a decrease and that we had gotten past the worst, but in fact numbers just dramatically increased.”

Between 65 and 70 students out of 368 at the school were out sick Monday, he said.

Stewart conferred with the Diocese of Covington’s superintendent, who discussed the situation with the Northern Kentucky Independent Health District before deciding to close the school.

“Together we came to the conclusion that the best thing was to take a few days and hopefully let this clear through the community and hopefully be back and healthy on Monday,” he said.

Elementary School Mourns Teacher of 14 Years



WAYCROSS, GA -- The death of a Center Elementary School teacher has left her school and family mourning and stunned.

Delilah Thornton died earlier this week after experiencing flu-like symptoms, her family says.

The 41-year-old worked at Center for 14 years and had perfect attendance.

Family members say the first-grade teacher went to a doctor but left before she was treated because the wait was too long. Thornton died at home and the cause is unclear but her family says it is possible she had another condition that exacerbated the effects of the illness.

Autopsy results are expected in two weeks.

The superintendent will release a statement later today. Stay with First Coast News and firstcoastnews.come for further details.

Seasonal flu shot increases A/H1N1 flu risk: study


OTTAWA, Sept. 23 (Xinhua) -- Preliminary results from some studies have found that seasonal flu shot may increase the risk of catching A/H1N1 flu, Canadian scientists said Wednesday.

About 2,000 people from four Canadian provinces were involved in the separate studies, which showed that people who had received the seasonal flu vaccine in the past were more likely to get sick with the H1N1 virus, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) said in a report Wednesday.

Researchers know that, theoretically, when people are exposed to bacteria or a virus, it can stimulate the immune system to create antibodies that facilitate the entry of another strain of the virus. Dengue fever is one example, scientists say.

But experts stressed that these are very preliminary results and need to be validated.

"This is some evidence that has been floated; it hasn't been validated yet, it's very preliminary," cautioned Dr. Don Low, microbiologist in chief at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.

But these are nevertheless very important data to help guide policy decision, as the time comes for seasonal flu shot, he said.

This latest finding raises questions about the order in which to get flu shots. Across Canada, public health authorities are fiercely debating the idea of shortening, delaying or scrapping their seasonal flu vaccination campaign in favor of mass inoculation against A/H1N1.

The main reason is because A/H1N1 may be the dominant strain of influenza circulating when the fall flu season hits, meaning it could be a waste of time and resources to mount a seasonal flu vaccine campaign.

U.S. reports 572 flu-related deaths, 5,486 hospitalizations in past week


HOUSTON, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Friday reported that 572 people had died of influenza and pneumonia-associated complications in the past week, bringing the death toll to 936 since the beginning of September.

Meanwhile, according to the latest statistics released by the CDC, 5,486 people across the country have been admitted last week to hospitals resulting from all types or subtypes of influenza, not just those from the A/H1N1 influenza virus, bringing the total number to 10,082.

In an effort to add additional structure to the aggregate reporting, the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) and the CDC have developed new case definitions for influenza-associated hospitalizations and deaths to be applied for the 2009-2010 influenza season, formally beginning from Oct. 4.

This new system was implemented on Aug. 30, 2009 and replaces the weekly report of laboratory confirmed A/H1N1-related hospitalizations and deaths since July.

States can now report to the CDC either laboratory confirmed or pneumonia and influenza syndromic hospitalizations and deaths resulting from all types or subtypes of influenza. To allow states to implement the new case definition, counts were reset to zero by the CDC on Aug. 30, 2009.

How the First Family Can Lead on Swine Flu
The president would set a good example by getting vaccinated on TV.



Earlier this month, President Barack Obama urged Americans to get vaccinated against the H1N1 "Swine Flu" virus when the new vaccine becomes available in October. The president also said he and his wife "will stand in line like everybody else" so high risk groups—young people, health workers, pregnant women and those with underlying health problems—would have immediate access.

This is an admirable gesture, but as a public health measure it does more harm than good. It fails to convey the urgency required for a successful mass vaccination. Now is the time for Mr. Obama to send a clear message about why his administration has spent billions to ensure that as many Americans as possible are protected against this virus. There's little reason to worry that strong words will incite a public panic. On the contrary, a bigger concern is that many Americans are skeptical that the risks of H1N1 are serious, and that getting vaccinated is worth the effort. .....

.......Nonetheless, it appears that many people are not planning to get the Swine Flu shot. A recent survey from the University of Pittsburgh shows that about three-quarters of Americans believe that neither they nor their family members or friends will contract H1N1, and a poll from the University of Michigan reveals that only 40% of parents plan to inoculate their children.

I bet anything when Michelle and Barak are in line for their shot it won't be a real vaccination - will probably be vitamin B or something else for appearances....

Don't know if anybody's seen this, but it's already started. They're threatening to fire healthcare workers in NY if they refuse the vaccine. But the workers are refusing and protesting.


Workers are being told to either get the swine flu vaccine or lose their jobs.



New York is the first state in the country to mandate flu vaccinations for its health care workers. The first doses of swine flu vaccine will be available beginning next week. Much of it is reserved for state health care workers, but there is growing opposition to required innoculations.



Health care workers in Hauppauge screamed "No forced shots!" as they rallied Tuesday against the state regulation requiring them to roll up their sleeves.



Registered nurse Frank Mannino, 50, was also angry. He said the state regulation violates his personal freedom and civil rights.



When asked if he's willing to lose his job, Mannino said, "absolutely I will not take it, will not be forced. This is still America."


Bravo Mr. Mannino !!!

Military to get mandatory swine flu shots soon
----------------------------------------------
US military troops will begin getting required swine flu [influenza
pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus] shots in the next week to 10 days, with active duty forces deploying to war zones and other critical areas going to the front of the vaccine line, a top military commander said on Tuesday [29 Sep 2009].

Air Force general Gene Renuart also told the Associated Press that as many as 400 troops are ready to go to 5 regional headquarters around the country to assist federal health and emergency management officials if needed as the flu season heats up.

The Pentagon has bought 2.7 million vaccines, and 1.4 million of those will
go to active duty military. National Guard troops on active duty are also
required to receive the vaccine, as are civilian Defense Department
employees who are in critical jobs.

"Because I can compel people to get the shots, larger numbers will have the vaccine," said Renuart, commander of US Northern Command. "They will, as a percentage of the population, be vaccinated more rapidly than many of us. So we may see some objective results, good or not, of the vaccinations."



So what does that mean?"So we may see some objective results, good or not, of the vaccinations."
