So from reading this report I have to ask if the reason they (WHO) wish for the testing to remain for the most part compartmentalized is because they need the antigen from the confirmed cases to be used in the massive vaccination construction.

They say several different companies may be used to make the vaccinations yet lack the correct amount of antigen to make enough for the entire worlds population.

That statement leads me to ask how they plan to carry out a worldwide vaccination program. And if they are truly serious about each person in the world accepting the vaccines, then mandatory vaccinations will be the only way. The implications are astounding when you consider what this means to the individual.

Raising pandemic alert level to 6 still possible: WHO
timesofindia.indiatimes.com...
3 May 2009, 0615 hrs IST, IANS

GENEVA: The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Saturday that the risk of a pandemic caused by the A/H1N1 virus was still very high and
there was still the possibility to raise the alert level to Phase 6 from the current Phase 5.

"At the present time, I would still propose that a pandemic is imminent because we are seeing the disease spread," Michael Ryan, the agency's director for global alert and response, told a news briefing in Geneva.

"This is the time for us to prepare, and be ready," he said.

The WHO's current pandemic alert level remains at Phase 5, which is characterized by human-to-human spread of the virus in two or more countries in only one WHO region.

Currently the sustained spread of the virus is still confined to the region of North America, notably Mexico and the US.

Although human cases have also been confirmed in Europe and Asia, there is still no evidence suggesting that sustained community outbreaks have occurred in the two regions, according to the WHO official.

Ryan warned that the possibility to raise to pandemic alert Phase 6, which means sustained community outbreaks in North America, cannot be ruled out.

"At this point, we have to expect that Phase 6 will be reached, and we have to hope that it is not reached," he said.

Mexico, the epicenter of the outbreak, has officially reported 397 confirmed human cases of infection, including 16 deaths. The US government has reported 160 laboratory confirmed human cases, including one death.

I really wish they'd make up our minds...

My husband finally got ahold of his sister. For those that missed me talking about her the first time, she is enlisted in the Army and trained as a combat medic. She is stationed at Fort Campbell. She says that they (medics) were put on alert and that the number of cases the media tells us is not correct. She said that they have not been given any definite number, but she will ask around and see what others have heard. She knows that it is more than we are told. She has recently found out that she is pregnant and was told that she was not to treat anyone that appeared to have flu like symptoms. She was told to send them to someone else in the infirmary for care.

Sorry if this was posted already. I'm still trying to catch up on the last few pages.


"Pandemics are serious," he said, but it is important to note they describe "the geographic spread of the disease, not its severity."

However, he cautioned against reports that indicate the virus may be weaker than originally thought.

"I'd be very pleased if it turns out that this virus is weaker than it could be. I'd be the happiest man in the world. However, I think history has told us that these viruses are very, very, very unpredictable."

WHO confirming backlog of suspected H1N1 cases *update*
www.cnn.com...
updated 30 minutes ago

GENEVA, Switzerland (CNN) -- The World Health Organization began distributing antiviral doses to 70 nations Saturday as the number of confirmed cases of swine flu rose to 659 across the globe.

The increase in confirmed cases was attributed to completed testing of numerous backlogged suspected cases in Mexico, where the flu strain scientifically known as H1N1 is believed to have originated, WHO officials said.

Mexico has the most confirmed cases, with 397 infected people, and 16 deaths attributed to the virus, WHO said. Mexico's health minister said Saturday that his nation's total had reached 443, although that number was not reflected in the WHO's total.

"What the increase reflects is that we are moving forward in confirming many of the cases that have been left untested for some time, so in an way that's reassuring," WHO spokesman Paul Garwood said.

Between the coughing and the fatigue, it's difficult to type coherently; please bear with me.

I've bee home sick since April 30. Doctor (actually Physician's Assistant) says I have "an upper respiratory virus".

Great timing, right?


Wthout being too graphic, I've just had an experience which gave me what might be a crazy idea.


I've been coughing heavily for three days now. About an hour ago, I noticed that something in the characteristics of ny cough had changed;


It Smelled differnet, it smelled "grassier", like freshly cut grass.


That got me to thinking; "Do viruses have a scent?"


And, by extension, do particular viruses have particular, identifiable, scents?



I know that there has been research done on the ability of dogs to identify certain types of cancer by scent. And it is believed that some, if not all cancers are caused by (a) virus(es).



Now, if it can be shown this H1N1-variant flu virus has an identifiable scent all it's own (and if is a truly new, and never before encountered virus, any scent it might have would certainly be unique), perhaps dogs"remarkable noses" could be drafted into the effort to process the glut of samples innundating the world's disease control control centers.


Just my fevered mind at work... back to the slab for me.

Sorry to hear you're feeling bad. Even though that was a mental image that I wish I hadn't received, you have a good point. I'm sure that there are some pasty complexioned scientists working on that very thing somewhere in the world right now. The dogs that "sniff out cancer" has always intrigued me. I'll look around the net and see if I can find any related research for you. Feel better soon!

EDIT: Well I found several articles about the research into cancer detection, diabetes detection, and one mention of dogs trained to predict epileptic siezures, but nothing on the virus sniffing. Here are some links for you. Perhaps you could contact one of the agencies and find further information.

The checktheevidence site was spooky in how alike it was to our own discussion here. It makes me feel better to know that there are others that can look at this situation and feel that something is not right. Hopefully, we will all be a little more informed and alot more careful for participating here.
