10/04/2009 two 16-year-old Steele High School students were diagnosed with swine flu earlier this month. “One became ill on April 10, the other on April 14. Their illnesses were relatively mild. Neither was hospitalized. Both have recovered. Though the boys are friends, it has not been determined how either became infected.”

A woman aged 41 years with an autoimmune illness who resided in Imperial County developed fever, headache, sore throat, diarrhea, vomiting, and myalgias on April 12. She was hospitalized on April 15. She recovered and was discharged on April 22. A respiratory specimen obtained April 16 was found to be influenza A positive by RT-PCR at the San Diego Country Health Department Laboratory, but could not be further subtyped. The woman had not been vaccinated against seasonal influenza viruses during the 2008--09 season. Three household contacts of the woman reported no recent respiratory illness.

Protected hugs to you Hx3!

Posted on another thread as well,I'm having a bit of trouble keeping up where and what I'm about but feel it's interesting and some on this thread I'm fond of:

"OoooohhhhOOoohhhh that smell!!!" Lynard Skynard

www.redorbit.com...

"Authorities have been taking swift action in order to avoid a global state of panic over the new strain of swine flu. Because of the investment made in the United States public health sector, there already exist available drugs and treatments that provide efficient countermeasure. "

"With more than 40 people having contracted this new strain of flu in the United States, the authority given by the FDA has even reached to include health officials and volunteer workers allowing them to distribute Tamiflu and Relenza.

In order to determine whether patients have the new strain, the rRt-PCR Swine Flu Panel diagnostic test has been authorized for testing samples. If the test reads positive, it will be presumed that the patient indeed has the new strain of H1N1 swine flu. A negative result however will be evidence that a patient does not have the virus"


Soooo...what am I reading here: a test will be given and if it "reads positive", it will be PRESUMED that I have this virus,and a nice volunteer will then issue "something" to me.

Unless it's a gold-star sticker like the ones my early teachers gave me this simply...will...not....happen.

Yep...they have got our butts "covered" because of the "investments made."

I agree that at this point,it's ALL about the gathering and culling out of info because there's stuff flying around that's simply boggling my mind.

88 Australians suspected of swine flu
news.ninemsn.com.au...

Eighty-eight Australians are feared to have contracted swine flu, with the search on for another 22 who were on the same flight as three New Zealand students now confirmed as being infected.

Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon has called on Governor-General Quentin Bryce to ensure chief medical officer Jim Bishop can enact Australia's quarantine powers, if required, for suspected swine flu cases.

This means authorities will have the power to detain people suspected of having the potentially deadly virus.

All joking aside...

This is an article worth your time. Dr Paul's take on it:

Found today at www.dailypaul.com...

L.A. Times article here:


www.latimes.com...

Warren D. Ward, 48, was in high school when the swine flu threat of 1976 swept the U.S. The Whittier man remembers the episode vividly because a relative died in the 1918 flu pandemic, and the 1976 illness was feared to be a direct descendant of the deadly virus.

"The government wanted everyone to get vaccinated," Ward said. "But the epidemic never really broke out. It was a threat that never materialized."


In in little time, we will be able to tell!

I'm glad you are staying on this thread too! The only news worth reading is the things you have posted.

The BBC is sooo slow,and I have to admit I have been following you all day,you seem to have gathering so much info,and it has saved me searching all over the web for the relevant facts.

I am trying to be level headed about this,and I have to admit we are in a good location (quite isolated) if and when England gets more cases,you have helped me keep on top of it all.
