4 dead after China A/H1N1 inoculation, 3 confirmed irrelevant to vaccine: ministry
www.chinaview.cn 2009-12-02 02:06:21 Print

BEIJING, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- China's Ministry of Health said here Tuesday that four deaths had been reported after inoculated with China-made A/H1N1 flu vaccine and three had been confirmed irrelevant to the vaccines.

  The three deaths were "coincidental" and causes of the other death are yet to be finalized, Liang Wannian, director of the ministry's emergency response office, said at a press conference.

Of the 26.18 million people nationwide who had been vaccinated by Monday, 2,867 suspected adverse reactions had been reported, Liang said. About four fifths of the reactions were fever or swelling.

"Clinical tests and practices in China and other countries have shown the A/H1N1 flu vaccines are safe," Liang said.

As of Sunday, the Chinese mainland had reported 178 deaths from the flu. More than 90,000 people were infected and nearly 80 percent had recovered.

Liang warned that the flu situation in China was still "severe" with an increasing number of deaths and more counties and municipalities reporting confirmed cases.

The proportion of A/H1N1 flu also increased greatly to about 90 percent of all flu cases in the past weeks.

Liang said schools were still the main venue for prevention news.xinhuanet.com...

Perhaps Japanese kids are particularly susceptible to delirium.

My youngest son, in his 20s, was delirious one night with swine flu.
He was not using any drugs, just vitamin C as ascorbic acid powder in diluted juices.

N.M. sees higher swine flu deaths among American Indians
By Sue Major Holmes The Associated Press
Posted: 12/02/2009 12:00:00 AM MST

ALBUQUERQUE — Swine flu is killing American Indians in New Mexico at a higher rate than other ethnic groups, and a top state Department of Health official says chronic disease and the distance many Indians have to travel to medical care could be part of the reason.

Indians make up 10 percent of New Mexico's population, but 20 percent of the state's swine flu deaths. www.daily-times.com...

There are only 46 million people in the Ukraine.

Perhaps the journalist meant 1,937 thousand.

From your source:

Half the 12 Hispanic children with swine flu in the CDC study, for example, suffered a cardiac or respiratory attack before they even reached an ER.

Veteran Brooklyn pediatrician Dr.Anatoly Belilovsky suggested another possibility. More than 25% of his patients in Brooklyn's Brighton Beach area are Mexican immigrants, Belilovsky says, and many suffer from Vitamin D deficiency, which can affect the strength of a person's immune system.


If the government was genuinely concerned with keeping the population healthy they would have publicised recent reports showing the efficacy of large doses of vitamin D in preventing influenza, instead of spending billions in pushing a questionable, fast-tracked vaccine that amounts to a huge stimulus package to the pharmaceutical companies.

The more melanin in your skin, the less vitamin D you absorb from the sun.
So it's logical that darker skinned people will get more serious illness from any influenza.

It would also be logical to make available to everyone in the country a free yearly injection of a pharmaceutical dose of vitamin D. As it's so cheap it should be cost-effective because of the increased productivity and reduced treatment costs. At least people should be given the latest information on the optimum amount of vitamin D and how best to obtain it.

However this won't happen as vitamin D is not patentable and therefore stays cheap and will make no-one wealthy. So there are no back-door kick-backs involved. Politicians are no better than big pharma. They are all only interested in lining their own pockets.

Crowded living places cause influenza deaths too, by allowing more deadly mutations of the virus to thrive. The greater the living distance is between people the less deadly an infection must be to keep being passed person to person efficiently.

Too much New Years partying, me thinks. All that drinking will lower the immune system. Let's hope this isn't a deadly new wave coming in.
