OK guys...waking up and running to the puter to check what I missed while doing the sleep thing is bad enough. Finding out it was zombies is even worse!!! I'm telling you, stay away from ATS before the first swig of coffee!

Seriously, I do think it's strange that the WHO changed there system overnight. Why do something else to raise more suspicion? Seems the amount of reported cases has slowed as well. I guess it's time for the media to calm us down.

The newest update from the WHO site:


1 May 2009 -- The situation continues to evolve rapidly. As of 06:00 GMT, 1 May 2009, 11 countries have officially reported 331 cases of influenza A(H1N1) infection.



The current WHO phase of pandemic alert is 5.


The graphic has actuall changed to have levels 5 and 6 together and currently circled. The site does not mention this change at all and I can't find anything about it in MSM. The site is also clear that we remain at level 5.

update 7

Hey there, Good Morning!

I found this last night about WHO changing the Threat Level...
The original article that was published by Reuters...WHO revises scale for pandemic alerts.

The World Health Organization (WHO) revised on Monday its 6-point scale


So...they did revise the scale. Everyone noticed as you did, they have now grouped 5 & 6 together. Which is Strange.

I just heard 30 or 40 minutes ago on MSNBC I think it was, as I was about to leave for work, that the numbers have of infection have jumped. An hour before that, another station said the numbers were dropping. What are we to believe?

I thought I would throw up the swine flu google map.......

www.swinemap.org...

I noticed many cases that were probable that turned out to be negative like Bentonville AR (12 that were neg) I am sure there are many others as well???

Yes its spreading but a very weak virus (unless it mutates to something else) but level 5 going to 6 soon???? A world pandemic?

So what does all this mean?? Lets lay it all on the table..............?

No actual U.S. deaths?

Obama says everything is fine, Biden creates gaff by saying he would not fly or send his grandchildren to school?

The media on this flu???

DHS reacts to Bidens comments in an unscheduled news conference saying everything is okay, keep flying and traveling...........?

DHS says this swine flu is a good test for the next one that is coming?

The boarders are still open to Mexico but we are moving toward level 6???

Various reports keep coming out of Mexico that do not add up to the numbers being reported????

Mexico is completely shut down???

A government and media attempt to mark the starting location of this virus at a U.S company owned pig farm in Mexico??????

The fly over in New York?

Chrysler files for BK and Obama says everything is fine not to worry?

GM is being dismantled...............1000's and 1000's of jobs will be lost much less businesses associated will close?

China is dumping the U.S. dollar for gold and other metals????

Banks will be Nationalized!!! already done deal? (inside source)

Martial law talk on Fox yesterday.....?

Alaska on Wednesday staged a mass vaccination prep test ?

Other prep vaccination events were scheduled?

Nato and U.S have staged military event in Florida?

Military becoming more involved in check points across the U.S.?

Acorn knocking on doors for the census with GPS devices, This census project has to be completed by July 2009 when its a 2010 census by orders of the president?

The RFID chip is one of the top inventions as reported by MSN last week??

A vaccine will be ready for mass inoculations in the fall as reported on some news channels yesterday?

Vaccine companies stocks have sky rocketed?

Baxter is already know for mixing live H5N1 with vaccines, A honest mistake???

Don't forget about those test vaccine deaths in Poland?????

The U.S. government and its history in the manufacturing of weaponized strains.......the 1976 swine flu event?????

Missing strains from military labs??

This is just off the top of my head..............

But don't worry.........everything is okay

Good Morning! A little sleep is amazing!

Swine Flu May Have Originated in California


Doctors tracking swine flu in California are investigating a new theory: What if it didn't originate in Mexico but instead had been floating around the border region for months?

Growing evidence in California suggests that early flu cases had no apparent origin in Mexico. Many of the early California victims — including the first two cases — say they hadn't traveled to Mexico and had no contact with pigs. Some may have fallen ill before the first Mexicans did.

Hx3 and a couple of other deserve like a gazillion points and dinner at a fine restaurant for their ceaseless contributions!
It seems to be getting even more confusing and I have no more doubt that it's all being played simply as Act 1 now.

Did you SEE the masses of people all crammed together like lemmings for the free"No Doubt" concert on the "Today" show this am?
People are not going to stop living no matter and TPTB know this so they will need to find a way to better slow them down as I see it.

Sis near Orlando says attendance is way up at the Mouse House as well,you'd think with all the darlin' lil' mini petrie-dishes in cute clothing running around that "something" would have come from there firsthand?
It's dangerous territory at this point to me.

People converge at Disney from ALL over the world and yet?

Going to go out and live it up a bit today whileI still can,LOL!
Protected hugs and thanks!
