I did send my daughter to school, mainly because she can't afford to miss any more, but also because I posted some simillar comments from an article yesterday. This wave does seem to be "mild" here in the US. Of course we could be being misled on that as well. If catching the flu this time around makes it less likely to get its deadly cousin in fall, I'd also rather catch it now. It just upsets me to see the total lack of logic the school system is using this time.

Somone was asking about the correlation between a Alert Level 6
at WHO. These links should cover that.

This is a link to the WHO Pandemic Actions by Phase

It is a two page pdf file with the first page being the Alert Chart, the second page is the Actions by Phase.

Here is a link to the U.S. Government Federal Response Stages.

Interview with Richard Besser, director of the CDC... 10 minutes ago on NBC.

A leading U.S. health expert said Monday that while "there are encouraging signs" of a leveling off in the severity of the swine flu threat, it's still too early to declare the problem under control.

"I'm not ready to say that yet," Dr. Richard Besser, acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said when asked about indications by Mexican health authorities that the disease has peaked there......
.......Besser said that "we are by no means out of the woods."

"In previous pandemics," he said, "there have been waves and you don't know what this virus is going to do."

Mexico lowered its health alert level Monday, citing improvements in the battle against swine flu.

The level was lowered from red, or "high," to orange, or "elevated."

Mexico lowers swine flu alert

My opinion: Mexico's numbers in this outbreak have been less than trustworthy up to this point. I don't trust that they are leveling off now. I think this is more in reaction to their huge economic/trade losses and public opinion than any real success against this flu.

Sorry for all the posts in a row. I'm just trying to do my part!

As of right now, WHO has received reports of 1003 confirmed cases of H1N1 influenza from 20 countries on four continents. I wish to thank all countries reporting H1N1 cases to WHO for their cooperation and transparency.

The world is in phase 5 now. This means that we need to maintain a high level of vigilance and monitor further international spread of the virus, and further spread in countries that are already reporting cases.

We do not know how long we have until we move to phase 6, which indicates we are in a pandemic. We are not there yet. The criteria will be met when we see, in one region outside North America, clear evidence of community-level transmission.

Everyone remember Bidens comments about flying or taking the subway?

Then the DHS has an unscheduled news conference refuting what VP Biden said stating it is safe to travel........

Then the next day or so a plane from Germany bound for NY makes an emergency stop in Boston for someone aboard showing flu symptoms.......

Remember what the media showed us......??

Well this is what really happened........The plane did an emergency landing at Boston due to several passengers showing signs of flu symptoms. The plane was parked on the tarmac and it did not come to the gate......Health officials boarded the plane taking everyone's temperature........Eight people were removed from the plane and placed in ambulances and were taken away..........

The remaining passengers were removed and placed on a non-commercial flight bound to NY.........

This is first source information from a police officer on the scene........(relative of an employee)

This is not quiet the information we received in the media is it???

Not sure what happened to the 8 passengers........Can anyone add info to this??

This article seems to be the main one...mentions one passenger who was resposible for the "flu stop". Amazing...

“Out of an abundance of caution, we contacted the CDC, who advised us to divert the flight to Boston, where the plane was met by paramedics, who tended to the customer,” McCarthy said.

Edit to add additional story:

As always sources need to be verified here on ATS.......I wish someone else could post info that colaborated the police officer's report.........From the picture it looks like there were many officers standing by............The Boston report is completely different from the officer's report............maybe not to panic the public??
