Newlyweds became the UK’s first confirmed victims of swine flu last night described how they caught the virus on their flight back to Britain.

But they had joked on the flight home about getting sick after five men sitting close to them on the plane to Birmingham had been repeatedly coughing and sneezing.

Thanks for the link

Unbelievable, i know these A-wipes are not giving us the real numbers. They keep saying it's serious, but yet they're hiding the real numbers from us, why ?

Here is some perspective. Do the math. From WHO home page.

Every year, there are about 250 million malaria cases and nearly one million deaths.

Percent that die .004

Flying-Pig Flu in Mexico reports 3000 people sick and 180 dead

Percent that die .06

If 250 million people catch this Flying-Pig flu nearly 15 million could die.

(That is 15 times more lethal than malaria BASED on what Mexico has reported so far.)

And on simple flu death rates of 36,000 every year in the USA, we also have 36-50 MILLION that get sick.

The math says the percent that die from simple flu is .001 to .00072 (very few in proportion.)

In addition, if you take the ratio for regular flu and multiply the number of dead from Flying-Pig flu we SHOULD expect to see 180,000 sick people at that rate. So where are the sick?

OK, the final ratio. If this were a simple flu for the 3,000 reported sick we would expect Three (3) total dead so far. Any one seeing a problem here?

It is such a difficult thing I am about to write. . . I want to discover that Mexico is under reporting by hundreds of thousands of sick people. So we know it is less deadly.

If Mexico is reporting the truth this is a very, very dangerous flu. So one asks why would they under report?

Mass panic. The people will panic if so many people are falling ill, or they will panic if few are ill but it is deadly. So instead they misinform and stall. The problem with that is the WHO must report and track something.

Mexico says it is tapering off today. Don’t you believe it! People are hunkering down at home and will avoid the hospitals until they need to be carried in at this point. In their minds at this time entering the hospital is like entering a virus proving ground. They are a place of last resort.

Pray the internet does not collapse over the weekend; we are going to need it.

PS my state Governor issued a Medical Emergency for us this afternoon with only one reported illness. One person in a city of a million.

What does he know about the flu that you don't?

not sure if anyone posted news regarding Florida, but it seems we're still awaiting test results...

Three Florida cases sent to CDC for swine flu testing

The Florida Department of Health has sent samples from three flu cases to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for further analysis to see if they are swine flu. It means testing of the samples by state laboratories could not rule out that possibility.

The samples were from Broward, Orange and Lee counties, with none from Miami-Dade, according to Susan Smith, spokeswoman for the state health department.

State labs have received at least 70 possible swine flu samples from several Florida counties, including 20 from Miami-Dade and ''several'' from Broward. It wasn't clear whether the fact that only three cases were sent on to the CDC means the rest have been ruled out as swine flu.

Miami-Dade health officials said Thursday they haven't been told whether the 20 Dade cases have been analyzed yet, or when they might get results.

Broward County Health Department spokeswoman Candy Sims said samples from ''several'' possible flu cases had been sent to the Florida Department of Health labs for analysis.

She didn't know when she might get results from the case forwarded to the CDC. And she said she had no further information about the possible Broward case.

I agree with them about the WHO's reaction being too slow.

I got kinda nervous for a minute when i couldn't get on , thought maybe one of us hit on something they didn't like, got a little too close and they shut it down.

That video was funny, scared my granddaughter for a minute her face got all white and she asked if they were serious, i explained it was just a joke, poor baby they know when something bad is goin on no matter how young they are.
