from your posted article...

Trends?


MEXICO * Emergency decree granted the government power to isolate sick people, enter homes or workplaces and regulate air, sea and land transportation to try to stop further infection.

UNITED STATES

* Declared a public health emergency. President Barack Obama said it was a "precautionary tool" that would give health officials resources needed to respond quickly and effectively.

I just talked with one of my old friends who moved to southern Utah a few months ago. He said that many of his friends here in the city I'm in (Northern Utah) are sick with the flu. When I asked him about them, he said they hadn't been to a doctor, and he was obviously not worried about it at all and said I was worrying too much even after I mentioned the pandemic alert level and the fact that my mother and the others at the health department were worried.

Sigh... I'm going to be especially careful now that I know just how many cases there might be here that aren't known about by the media. Definitely bringing my mask to school tomorrow.

There is some good news, though. I went to the capital to see Wicked yesterday. I had my mask ready to put on if anyone around me was coughing, sneezing, or otherwise being sick. No one at all coughed during the whole thing. Either the sick ones stayed home, or it hasn't hit Salt Lake City yet.

And yes, I know going to see the production was a foolish thing to do, but it was worth possibly getting sick for. It most likely was the only chance I had of ever seeing it. We don't get much broadway here in Utah.

Children Especially Vulnerable to A/H1N1 Virus
blogs.wsj.com...


You know i was reading this and one thing in particular caught my attention. They say that children seem to be more vunerable, then say that the median age is 17. I wish they would have done the chart in five year groups instead of ten I would like to see how many affected in the 0-9 group are between the ages of 8-9.

Anyway what i was thinking was, could it be possible that the reason they're more vunerable is because many of them are going through puberty, and their body's are in the process of major change ? Some children hit puberty as young as 8 or 9. Let me know what you think, You too BTS.

Thanks for the video, i was trying for something similar it was a boy sticking his tongue in his nose, YUCK


And your posts are great
Great links, and the ocassional laugh does us all good, it keeps me sane through all of this


Take care and please get some rest.


On a personal note my grandaughter is still not feeling well. I've been having her gargle with antiseptic mouthwash, drinking hot lemonade, elderberry tea, throat drops with tons of vitamins and herbs in them, and lots of vitamin C. Hopefully it's not this flu thing.

Influenza A(H1N1) - update 13
www.who.int...

4 May 2009 -- As of 06:00 GMT, 4 May 2009, 20 countries have officially reported 985 cases of influenza A (H1N1) infection.

Mexico has reported 590 laboratory confirmed human cases of infection, including 25 deaths. The higher number of cases from Mexico reflects ongoing testing of previously collected specimens. The United States has reported 226 laboratory confirmed human cases, including one death.

The following countries have reported laboratory confirmed cases with no deaths - Austria (1), Canada (85), China, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (1), Costa Rica (1), Colombia (1), Denmark (1), El Salvador (2), France (2), Germany (8), Ireland (1), Israel (3), Italy (1), Netherlands (1), New Zealand (4), Republic of Korea (1), Spain (40), Switzerland (1) and the United Kingdom (15).

There is no risk of infection from this virus from consumption of well-cooked pork and pork products.

Any link to this news about going to phase 6 ? Broadcast at 4pm GMT as per usual ?

Good morning, all. Regarding the pending increase to level 6 at WHO:


"Level 6 does not mean, in any way, that we are facing the end of the world. It is important to make this clear because (otherwise) when we announce level 6 it will cause an unnecessary panic," she told Spanish newspaper El Pais.




"Flu viruses are very unpredictable, very deceptive ... We should not be over-confident. One must not give H1N1 the opportunity to mix with other viruses. That is why we are on alert."


I'm wondering if this comment was made because of the transmission from human to swine. I've read many places that this could lead to a more deadly strain being mutated from this one.


A declaration of a full pandemic would send a signal to governments worldwide to institute their pandemic response plans, which may include measures affecting hospitals, schools or public events.


Hx3 posted a link several pages back that described the measures that each government was currently undertaking. It would be interesting to see this updated after the increase in level and compare the two.

I need some help understanding the logic here. As you know my daughter is going to alternative school for the rest of the year. The school building is located in Liberty, TX, which has closed all schools in its district. This campus has students from several ISDs all going to the same classes and is not considered part of any one ISD.

After finally getting ahold of someone there this morning, I was told that only the students originally from Liberty ISD campuses would not be expected in school today.

So, that means that my child and anyone else's child from a surrounding town are to go to a school that is located in a city where every other campus has been closed. Their classmates that actually live in the city will be protected, though, so it's OK?

Sorry for the rant, but I needed to vent!

Morning all, Checking in before a nap.


I would say if all the other schools are closed i'd be d@#ed if my kid would be going to school, just as a saftey measure, Sure its a diffrent school but how many of the kids in the other schools are friends with the ones in your school.
They would just be out of luck there.

I figured they were going to go to 6 today. I am surpised they didnt already.

Honestly i think they should shut down all schools. it will curb the spreading some, but it will also protect more kids and keep them from getting it. Give them a month off, add it to the end of the year and see where this thing goes. Their life and health is more important than taking a chance of infecting all of them.
Not like it would hurt anything, better to be safe than sorry. Espicaly where kids are involved.

Was listening to NPR this morning and a doc/scientist said this virus is expected to mutate into something else, and that those who got ill from this virus would have some immunity from future strains.

I wouldn't go out of my way to get this virus, but I wouldn't keep my kids out of school either; most everyone is getting thru it ok and will have some immunity from future strains, and there will be future strains. jmo

Oh and another thing he said is that a lot of people already have some immunity to this virus because the basic H1N1 virus has been around for a long time, which is the thing that started this current virus to begin with. That would explain how one family member gets ill but three others in same family don't.
