Thank you for all your efforts to keep up with the latest news. I started with this thread and luckily subcribed early so stars to you and the OP! There are so many threads on this now it's impossible to keep up with them all.......and gotta love the ufo/flu connection


I'm still on the fence about this flu. As long as there aren't deaths outside of Mexico that could mean it's mutated to where it's less dangerous and could burn itself out. We all have to wait and see if there is a second wave later this year. Just my thoughts.

You know this just dawned on me but I find it interesting that this flu mysteriously breaks out in Mexico (spanish) when normally viruses emerge out of Asia and the WHO is keeping an eye on this because it's a never before seen strain (mmm...man made and released?) and it could simulate the 1918 (Spanish flu) again with the spanish.

I know I am going conspiracy here but what if this virus was man made or at least recreated and released to the public in Mexico because it was meant to be as killer as the spanish flu of 1918 -1919?

I don't know just my thought.

Mexico City is an excellent breeding ground for virus for exactly the same reason Asia is.

CDC "Tweeting" Swine Flu Updates
www.cbsnews.com...

(CBS) Just in case you're not getting enough up-to-the-minute news about swine flu, you can log in to Twitter to get updates from the government's Centers for Disease Control.

The CDC is using Twitter to spread the word on how not to spread or get swine flu. The CDC has several Twitter accounts including @CDCemergency, which is posting new recommendations, bulletins on confirmed cases, and information on antiviral drugs and other ways to deal with or prevent the disease.

The Associated Press reports that there have been more than 1,600 reported cases and the number of suspected deaths has reached 149 in Mexico. At 1 p.m. Eastern Monday, the CDC reported 40 confirmed cases in the United States: California (7), Kansas (2), New York City (28), Ohio (1), and Texas (2). One person has been hospitalized, but there have been no deaths.

Mexico Slammed for Slow Response
www.foxnews.com...

As the swine flu crisis threatens to become a global pandemic, health experts are asking whether the health system in Mexico, where the virus originated, is up to dealing with the outbreak and whether an earlier response might have prevented its worldwide spread.

Both the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have sent teams into Mexico after government officials there requested their assistance.

As of Tuesday morning, the virus was suspected to have caused 152 deaths in Mexico. But with thousands more patients yet to be tested, observers warn the worst may be yet to come.

More on the California Swine Flu Possible Fatalities

Two deaths in Southern California may be due to swine flu, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner's office.

The Los Angeles Times reported on its Web site that tests are being conducted and no official cause of death has been determined.

However, a spokesman for the county coroner told the newspaper that the death of a 33-year-old Long Beach man came after he had swine flu symptoms. Doctors disagnosed him with pneumonia.

The second death also involved pneumonia. Doctors said a 45-year-old man from La Mirada died last Wednesday at a hospital in Norwalk, but the county health department refused to sign the death certificate and wanted to investigate further, the newspaper reported.

Animal husbandry practices are indeed at the core of this disease. For the sake of denying ignorance, we can separate out debates about humane treatment and personal/global benefits of vegetarianism for the moment.

The world must engage in more sanitary animal farming, whereby a vector as small as a fly might transfer a disease from animals to humans. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Instead we hear from corporations, and the politicians they control, how expensive the prevention is, without telling us how much they charge for the pound of cure.
Instead of the best public health practices as a prevention, we are offered the expensive corporate pill as a cure.

While we throw taxdollars at the military-industrial-complex and sell arms to our "friends", we can be killed/debilitated from not just our "enemies" but from our friends. What good does the latest expensive piece of military hardware/system or huge craft do me, if I can be dead from a minute virus started because another country's public health standards are low?
We throw dollars at a medical system, which should only be the last resort. Stop fouling our own nest, use the ounce of prevention instead, and save the pound of cure.

What we must do is wrest government back from the control of corporations. Getting gov't off the back of corporations, letting corporations police their health standards, throwing more money at businesses who inspect/issue certificates, widened the door of corruption/inefficiency.

Americans must stop calling themselves consumers and quit pledging allegiance to corporations/corporate brands. We no longer behave as citizens; instead we pledge allegiance to an effete, hallow govt that has been robbed of its effectiveness and tax dollars, in a country robbed of its resources and wealth.

Americans realized on 9-11 that oceans could not protect them from acts of terrorism. We now realize that no matter how tall a fence is, our land borders cannot keep us well either. We are all swine farmers now.

Yep...more to come no doubt.
It looks like the bulk of the decision-making will be left to the local-levels at this point unless a higher Level is declared by the WHO?
I guess now I'm sorting out the chain of commands and what it might mean at each level along the way.

Nice post.

It is multi-faceted; not just the Govt., and not just greedy corporatations, but the people creating the consumer demand have to raise their consciousness and get out of this instant gratification mode. I'm guilty, we're all guilty, and I know now that it starts with me.

If people knew what happens to chickens that end up on their table, well, I won't get too graphic. But try to imagine how many chickens suffer and then get thrown out anyway at the end of the day at thousands of KFC's. Well I don't want to turn this thread into something entirely different but maybe this flu will get our attention and some changes can start to occur.

This round of flu probably isn't any worse than most others. People need to avoid running out and buying tamiflu, THAT is what will set us up for a much worse epidemic because it will cause the new virus to become immune to any treatment.
