Swine Flu Extends Reach, Sickens Hundreds in New York (Update1)
bloomberg.com...

April 29 (Bloomberg) -- New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said hundreds of students in his city are sick with suspected cases of swine flu, an indication the disease may be taking root in countries outside Mexico.

President Barack Obama asked Congress for $1.5 billion in new funding to brace for an outbreak, according to a White House spokesman. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency to help the most populous U.S. state prepare. New York, one of six states with 65 confirmed cases, has 45.

The virus toll has been highest in Mexico, where more than 150 may have died from the malady, though only 26 cases have been confirmed through tests. Many cases in the U.S. were confirmed with samples taken routinely from patients with respiratory infections before the outbreak was known, and more may be coming, said Tim Uyeki, a disease tracker at the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s flu division.

I'm starting to wonder if it makes a difference if we see or hear or read anything.
Where do you suppose the truth lies?
Crazy isn't it -
We have a lot of work to do - this species.
Starting with telling the truth.
What a load off of all of our minds -
if we knew we could just depend on that happening.

I have put in a request for a google translation, so... and I was thinking after the last post we will be able to tell a bit more by how different countries react to the press conference and how many block flights and travel into the country.

Dont we have any spanish speaking members who can give us a brief synapsis?

I only understood the to mention economy everyother word and a bunch of references to Pollo... Chicken???

I'm seriously begining to think it should be called "Swine-dle" flu?

It makes NO good sense to me why it should be so damn hard for things to have a bit more clarity at this point.

Thanks to all who work tirelessly to update,the amount of BS out there is staggering and it's hard to know which end is up,LOL!



that is running for competition in first place! The other name I read was WWYTD flu...We Want You To Die Flu! Oh my it is rather twisted...either one but we have got to have a laugh or it will get to us!

Our ever infamous World Bank President is in the news, warning us of a "calamity". Maybe this is "The One"


The head of the World Bank warned over the weekend that the deepening global economic crisis threatens to unleash “a human and developmental calamity.”

World Bank President Robert Zoelick issued the warning in the context of a meeting of the bank and the International Fund in Washington that came on the heels of meetings by G7 and G20 finance ministers in the US capital.
Zoelick said that developing countries will see “especially serious consequences with the crisis driving more than 50 million people into extreme poverty, particularly women and children.”
The IMF and World Bank warned Sunday that global unemployment is set to rise from 5.3 percent to 8.5 percent, leaving some 90 million more people “trapped in extreme poverty.” He added: “The number of chronically hungry people is expected to climb to over 1 billion this year.”


Hummm read between the lines ATS readers. What is he saying?

And here we can compare Wall St with the Swine Flu
What Wall Street has in common with Swine Flu

I have now twice seen people describe this flu as causing vomiting/diarrhea.

Can anyone confirm these symptoms?

Does anyone know if masks really work?

I've been hearing more and more that they are not really useful, but that they have a psychological effect that is a double-edged sword:
1) People who wear them are more aware that they have to take preventive actions in order to protect themselves (they seem to wash they hands more often and keep a safe distance from others)
but also,
2) Since they're wearing the masks, they feel that they can go a mingle out more in crowded areas because they think that they are more protected.

Edit to say that there were 1 or 2 cases, not sure if they're confirmed or only suspected, in Oklahoma.

I heard on the radio today that the masks do not provide much protection.
So...they said if you need to be protected, a mask wont do it.

Hope that helps...and they also said to buy a respriator if you need to be protected. Wow that was a shock to hear...as you seen all the pictures of folks wearing masks.

Apparently the disposible masks offer very little protection once they are damp,so you would need to replace them quite often I imagine.
I have not got a link but this came from a Doctor being inteveiwed on the BBC breakfast news yesterday.
I had a quick look on the web and companies seem to be putting their prices up already!
