Panic over swine flu is breaking out all over

I was out all day taking my ma to all the stores she needed to go to and i didn't see any signs of people showing any fear of this flu outbreak.

Kids were all outside playing (after the rain stopped) stores were crowded as usual, heard a couple people saying that they weren't tryin to catch this swine flu (as if there are those who are tryin to catch it
), and of course traffic was horrible
But it just seemed like another normal day here, i did notice that there didn't seem to be as many people waiting at the bus stops maybe they're avoiding mass transit right now.

We're still at 51 suspected cases and 3 confirmed cases.

I found a discrepency in their numbers though
and it's on the Illinois Department of Public Health website, give me a couple of minutes to pull up some stuff and i'll post it.

H1N1 flu : 8 more probable cases
Saturday, May. 2nd 2009 12:09 AM

Eight more suspected cases of the new flu virus were identified in Minnesota on Friday, bringing the total for the first full week of the outbreak to nine. The Minnesota Department of Health said that three of the new cases are from Hennepin County, and one each is from Dakota, Wright, Polk, Scott and Isanti counties. None of the people who contracted the new H1N1 virus required hospitalization. All are at home and expected to make a full recovery, health officials said late Friday night. That means, they said, that the new flu which is rapidly evolving into a global flu pandemic, is so far behaving like standard seasonal influenza. The new cases have not yet been confirmed by the Centers...

Swine flu comes to Lane County Oregon now has five probable cases, with two suspected local cases involving elementary school children in Eugene

Something I was talking to xoxo stacie about...

reply to post by xoxo stacie
That seems to be the consensus I'm seeing as well...

The NAU Flu it's self might not kill you, it's the secondary/tertiary attacks and infections on a already compromised immune system...

Not a nice thought...and there's still that 2nd/3rd mutation angle as well

Ok hopefully i can post this so it makes sense

They are reporting Illinois has 51 suspected cases and 3 confirmed cases, however on the Illinois Department of Public Health's website i saw that they are double counting cases.

Open that link and look at the first chart, top right in green. It list the cases by city, or county.

They have listed under suspected cases; 15 Chicago, 11 Cook county, 11 DuPage county, 8 Kane county, 3 Will county, and 1 each in Kendall, Lake, and McHenry counties for a total of 51 suspected cases in Illinois.

Here's where the problem comes in, they are double counting Chicago's or Cook county's numbers

You see the entire city of Chicago is in Cook county, therefore Chicago's numbers are included in Cook county's numbers, so why are they listing them seperately
Which would mean somebody's numbers are being double counted right ? Now if they're doing that here where else are they doing it ?

What do you think, can you follow my line of reasoning, am i making sense, have i lost my mind

Really? Yesterday zombies, and today we are sending people to their destruction? Can I pick tomorrow AM's headline? I'm pretty sure I could write an article about ET genes piggybacking on the brand new nifty vaccine we will all take in November.

This morning's news:

Sparse supplies at Harris County’s public hospitals and clinicsforced doctors to reserve the medication for hospitalized patients and health care workers, officials said. The hospital district is trying to obtain more Tamiflu doses, said Dr. Robert Atmar, who chairs the district’s infectious disease committee.

So, does that mean that every story we have seen in the Houston area that says someone was recovering after receiving Tamiflu, was at one time hospitalized or a health care worker?

The cost of Tamiflu — $100 per dose — was a major factor in the hospital district’s decision last year to stock minimal reserves, Atmar said.

If the hospital must pay $100 for each dose, and Texas has 840,000 doses available, then Roche and GKS have made over 8 million dollars from one state alone. I am so in the wrong business.

I think it's time we both went to bed (separately of course

*I think* they're counting Chicago a separate entity in its self...

Combined they're 26, which, with the rest of the numbers works out right...

Otherwise it would be Chicago 15...Cook Co (c15+cc11)=26...which would be (c15+cc26)=41 + the others...Hmmm

There...I've made it a bigger mess than what you started out with...happy?

ok we're both gonna make a mess of these numbers. I get what you're saying, but it doesn't make sense for it to be that way as Chicago's numbers are supposed to automatically go into cook county's numbers, just like they do with all the other counties. Why seperate Chicago ?

Oh well either you're right or i'm right

China says it will quarantine all those who travelled on a flight from Mexico with a man suffering from swine flu, in a bid to curb the spread of the virus.

The 25-year-old man flew to Hong Kong via Shanghai on Thursday, and was admitted to hospital.

Beijing said it would put his fellow passengers under week-long observation. It also suspended flights from Mexico.

Mexico: 101 deaths estimated, 16 confirmed
US: One death, at least 141 confirmed cases
New Zealand: 4 confirmed, 12 probable cases
Canada: 35 confirmed cases
UK: 13 confirmed cases
Spain: 13 confirmed cases

I am starting to come to the conclusion that the flu issue with Mexico is a hoax........Last night three different ATS members living in Mexico said this flu stuff was BS.......that they could not find anyone who knew someone who has died or even sick??? One of the members says he is going to video the town and hospital and post on youtube...hope so.......

I am starting to think this all started in the U.S. and this is an attempt to completely collapse the economy of Mexico along with the U.S if we move into level 6.......

Goodmorning to all, I see the UK stayed busy here last night or I should say night for me..........

Infinite, very interesting numbers, Pandemic? What pandemic? 40 cases wilth very few probable? Hhmmmmmmmm

Before I crashed last night, three different members reported from Mexico that all of this flu stuff was BS.......and they could not even find anyone who knew of someone dying......

They even reported that yes people were wearing mask and gloves but the ER's were empty (as far as flu) cases. And no deaths??

In the U.S., I have verified people being sick and linked deaths to the virus that the CDC is not reporting on the east coast.....

Have there been more reports that this is BS in Mexico and maybe this virus really started in the US in an attempt to completely destroy the Mexican economy? Just a thought?

My husband has family in Mexico and is calling them daily, so far they have seen nothing. I have a strange feeling this is one of those new ways the government wants to destroy Mexico. I truthfully believe its a bunch of BS. My daughter caught a virus 2 months ago we all got it. According to the Dr. it was a killer virus. It also had headaches and high fever. At that time it was effecting children and elderly mostly. There had been 27 deaths just in NC at that time. I believe its the same virus. Yet it was hushed up at that time. It was not the regular flu. We had already had both of those strains for the year. My 6 year old almost died from it. But is now fine.

I believe its something that started here in the US. and just now we are seeing it. And hearing about it. A few others were talking in here about a week ago about them having a high fever with a virus, and this was over a month back. Sounds to me like the government is covering somehing up. It wouldnt be there first time to cover up something either.

Reporting from Mexico City -- First, one of Manuel Martinez's children fell ill. Then others in his family -- 12 people living under a single small roof in the state of Zacatecas -- became sick. Martinez, 42, was the last to catch the disease, and the only one in his family to die.

Daniel Lucio Fiscal, 35, a robust father of a small child, taught music in the elementary and high schools of San Luis Potosi. He took his family to a resort for Easter weekend, and then the headache and fever started. He died April 25.

I hear you my favorite Borg!!!

Can you possibly expand on those "doubts?" I'd like to hear what you are thinking because honestly,my brain is about fried.
I am sensing MANY are having some doubts but we're all just waiting for that next shoe to drop and it's so uncomfortable!

I feel like they are "making it up as they go along" just to see the reactions and the limits of how much BS people will actually swallow whole.

Do they quickly agree to meds and shots...oooohh....goody!

Carry on into phase two...

THEN they'll decide how it's to play out!

I'm hoping that the "Tupac sightings" on another thread turn out to be true so at least we'd have a gansta' among us we knew was a "real one",LOL!

This is most likely the "False Flag" everyone's been talking about...

At first this pandemic seemed reasonable, but...

A lot of Mexicans are "supposedly reporting" that they don't see/hear what we're being told/shown

In the Mexican Newspapers I've scanned, it shows hospital personnel in bio-garb, but, no masses of panicked, over-whelming patients

In a "Big List" of Mexican Newspapers...a lot seem "down" (Media Control for good or bad?)

Is this a way to collapse Mexico .gov to facilitate part of the NAU???

Is this a way to get at Mexico's Oil/resources???

Swine flu source spawns wild theories

Then these things...

Obama reveling in U.S. power unseen in decades

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Barack Obama is reveling in presidential power and influence unseen in Washington for decades.

Barely 100 days in office, the U.S. president and his Democratic Party have firm control over the White House and Congress and the ability to push through ambitious plans.

Now, with the coming retirement of a Supreme Court justice clearing the way for him to appoint a successor, Obama already is assured a legacy at the top of all three branches of government -- executive, legislative and judicial.

On the corporate front, the federal government's pumping of billions of dollars in bailout money into banks and auto companies has given Obama the power to force an overhaul in those industries, a remarkable intervention in capitalist industries by the state.

Americans are giving him leeway as well. His job approval ratings are well over 60 percent, giving him political capital to undertake big challenges.
