More than 1,200 swine flu cases worldwide: WHO
'Level 6 does not mean that we are facing the end of the world:' WHO chief
www.cbc.ca...
Last Updated: Monday, May 4, 2009 | 6:51 PM ET

The number of confirmed cases of swine flu has risen to 1,200 in 20 countries, the World Health Organization said Monday, after UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said the health agency has no immediate plans to raise its pandemic alert to the highest level.

Keiji Fukuda, the UN health agency's acting assistant director general, told reporters on Monday the WHO has concerns about the infection travelling to the southern hemisphere as that part of the world heads into the winter months, when influenza viruses usually occur.

The largest number of H1N1 flu cases reported are in North America, Fukuda said, while new cases being reported in Europe are related to travel. He said there is still no evidence of community-level spreading of the virus in Europe and Asia.

"We're not quite certain how this is going to evolve," Fukuda said during a video teleconference from Geneva. "There is always uncertainty about the evolution of a new disease as it spreads worldwide."

I came across this article about an advisory that was issued to doctors by the CDC earlier this year. This article is dated February 2nd 2009.




This season it is recommended that doctors prescribe rimantidine along with Tamiflu because this year’s strain of flu is resistant to Tamiflu.



Earlier this year the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an advisory recommending for doctors, saying that doctors should treat patients with flu with a combination of Tamiflu and other drugs. More than half of the flu viruses that have been analyzed in the U.S. this season are of the H1N1 strain, which makes them Tamiflu-resistant. Last year only 11 percent of the most common flu strains were resistant to Tamiflu.



Given this situation, H1N1, the strain resistant to common anti-flu treatment could become the dominant strain this season



Influenza and its additional complications, such as pneumonia, cause 250,000 to 500,000 deaths annually, according to WHO.



www.efluxmedia.com...


Could it be that part of the problem is that perhaps doctors didn't follow the recomendations of the CDC in the begining of the flu season ?

Good Evening,

I have a first hand experience to report...maybe nothing but seems out of place. I live in a smaller city, California Sierra Nevada Foothills.

As I was out this evening...I noticed that at the central Firehouse there were 100+ trucks, and some agency vehicles. Strange. Never seen it before...parking lot jammed full of trucks all types of agency trucks.

Wondering if they are having a meeting about preparedness. Obviously something is up, as not in my lifetime have I observed that in this town.

Opinions? I wonder if I should go back and see what kind of agency's were there?

Yes go back, inquiring minds want to know


I forgot to tell you guys, friday when i was coming back from taking my ma home, i passed some kind of a police checkpoint. I was on a major four lane street headed east and the police had one of the westbound lanes closed and cones directing the westbound traffic into a parking lot. There were squad cars all over the place and officers in the parking lot talking to people in the cars. I have never seen this before and was curious, but wasn't about to go investigate as i had the grandkids with me.

I had forgotten about it until i read your port. Maybe all the city departments are practicing, or preparing for something.

Does it seem normal to you that the Department of Forestry would be there ? Could you see where the other trucks were from, or did they all belong to the F.D. and the D.O.F. ?

I took a picture from up the street, did not want to snap one right up close, as the meeting was letting out and there were alot of men outside...I drove by in my truck, and they were staring at me. They were all in uniforms...and they scared me. I will upload the picture that I snapped from a bit of a distance.

I was afraid to do one up front and center...I live in a town where the police force is commonly referred to as "Nazi". They are very agressive. I am not joking...here is proof positive Placer County has extremely agressive Police Force . Haha the lucky cityfolk here have even written to the local paper complaining. (Crazy if you ask me they even gave names!)

Still, it just seems out of place. Lots of trucks...marked and unmarked.

Edit to add: it seems a bit early for fire stuff here...it has rained solid for the last 4 days, aside from a slight time off this a.m. It is raining now.

One oddity in the outbreak is that this swine flu has affected mostly younger patients, CDC officials confirmed. Of the confirmed cases in the U.S., two thirds are under 18.The original H1N1 virus behind the deadly 1918 pandemic likely circulated among humans continuously until the 1950s, and then disappeared by 1957, according to the CDC. Researchers said they are trying to determine whether people born prior to 1957 have an immunity to the H1N1 virus.



As for learning how the virus will behave at the peak of flu season this fall, officials are turning to Australia and the rest of the Southern Hemisphere to observe the start of the winter flu season there. "That will tell us a lot about whether the virus is changing," Besser said. "And what measures we might want to take in the fall."



So far, 99 percent of suspected cases tested for follow-up are confirmed, the CDC said


99% of suspected cases are confirmed, i haven't heard that before ???
