I can't freakin believe the US hasn't suspended flights to and from Mexico. That is pretty sinister if you ask me.

And think about the fact that Obama (shaking hands with hundreds of people) and his entire entourage were in Mexico during the most dangerous time, when the flu wasn't known quite yet (just 1 or 2 days from being announced) and so no precautions were being taken, and yet, and yet not a one of them is sick?? Two and two don't make four on that deal.

I just saw this. Doesn't that make just 3 cases with no travel to Mexico? Makes me think there may be many cases that are not being investigated because they don't meet that criteria. Also, has anyone seen a number of suspected US cases rather than confirmed?

CNN reports finding "patient zero", which should be very important in tracing the virus, but they can't seem to find out how he contracted it.


Lab tests confirmed that Edgar was the only patient in Veracruz to test positive for the swine flu virus; the others had contracted a common flu.

His mother blamed the virus on a huge pig farm in the neighborhood. Officials have conducted tests at the farm owned by U.S. company Smithfield Foods, and those tests came back negative.

Anyone know anything about this area of Mexico? Why would just one person seemingly spontaneously catch a brand new virus?

Even WHO says human to human is confirmed. I'm just wondering why it took so long since the two in Texas were part of the first recognized in the US. Hopefully, they are now testing for the new strain even if there has been no travel. If I remember correctly (way to many news stories!) they were only suggesting those with symptoms, that had travelled to Mexico recently, be tested for the new strain.

It was on Tulsa Channel 8 news, and I could swear they said Muskogee but I went to News 8 web and can't find anything about it. I was getting ready for work so didn't hear the whole thing but they definitely said Oklahoma though I am pretty sure it is "suspected" at this time not yet confirmed.

Reply to Bombeni,

As usual, Glen Beck thinks the typical stuff about politics...that Obama is using this "crisis" to push through his nominee, Sebelius.

www.thedailybeast.com...

I think IMHO Beck, while well intentioned may be wrong.

Way to much to make up for something so simple. She was already voted in yesterday. So there has to be more going on. IMHO

IN FACT, I think we should demand an answer to this. What are the odds, how astronomically low are the odds, that all these people could have been in Mexico 2 days before the swine flu was publicly announced so none of them were wearing gloves or masks, and not a one of them is sick.

I want an answer to that. Maybe Glen Beck would take this one on. I'm going to his website and suggest it.

For those of you are conspiracy theroists


Here is an excellent read:

As Swine Flu Spreads, Conspiracy Theories of Laboratory Origins Abound


I am not a medical specialist in the area of infectious disease, but I have studied microbiology, genetics and a considerable amount of material on pandemics. What seems suspicious to me is the hybrid origin of the viral fragments found in H1N1 influenza. According to reports in the mainstream media (which has no reason to lie about this particular detail), this strain of influenza contains viral code fragments from:

• Human influenza
• Bird Flu from North America
• Swine flu from Europe
• Swine flu from Asia

This is rather astonishing to realize,
because for this to have been a natural combination of viral fragments, it means an infected bird from North America would have had to infect pigs in Europe, then be re-infected by those some pigs with an unlikely cross-species mutation that allowed the bird to carry it again, then that bird would have had to fly to Asia and infected pigs there, and those Asian pigs then mutated the virus once again (while preserving the European swine and bird flu elements) to become human transmittable, and then a human would have had to catch that virus from the Asian pigs -- in Mexico! -- and spread it to others. (This isn't the only explanation of how it could have happened, but it is one scenario that gives you an idea of the complexity of such a thing happening).

Here is what I could find on Oklahoma's first case:

Possible Swine Flu Case In Muskogee, Oklahoma: Will Be First in OK
Source: Channel 6 News

MUSKOGEE, OK -- The Veterans Administration hospital in Muskogee has told the News On 6 on Tuesday, a patient at their facility appears to have swine flu symptoms.

VA spokesperson Neda McClellan says the patient confirmed he had recently returned from Cozumel, Mexico.

McClellan says the hospital took culture samples and sent them on the Oklahoma Department of Health for evaluation. They expect to know whether or not the patient tests positive for swine flu by Wednesday afternoon.

If positive, this would be the first case of swine flu in Oklahoma.

Meanwhile, the Oklahoma Department of Health says samples taken from five patients with flu-like symptoms in the state have all come back negative for swine flu.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health has set up a phone bank for persons with questions about swine flu.

The toll free number is 1-866-278-7134.

The OSDH says the phone will be answered Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
