Mexico-Swine fever leaves 81 dead
27/04/2009 01:41:23


The outbreak of swine fever has killed more than 60 people in Mexico, prompting national panic amid fears of a global pandemic.
Tests show 68 people in the Central American state have died from a new strain of "pig flu", with over 1,000 more cases confirmed by Mexico’s Health Secretary Jose Angel Cordova.

Which is it now??? Hmmm...
...can't even get it right in their own story

Mexico outbreak traced to 'manure lagoons' at pig farm
April 28, 2009

It is now known that there was a widespread outbreak of a powerful respiratory disease in the La Gloria area earlier this month, with some of the town’s residents falling ill in February. Health workers soon intervened, sealing off the town and spraying chemicals to kill the flies that were reportedly swarming through people’s homes.

According reports gathered on the website of James Wilson, a founding member of the Biosurveillance Indication and Warning Analysis Community (BIWAC), about 60 per cent of La Gloria’s 3,000-strong population have sought medical assistance since February.

“Residents claimed that three pediatric cases, all under two years of age, died from the outbreak,” wrote Mr Wilson. “However, officials stated that there was no direct link between the pediatric deaths and the outbreak; they said the three fatal cases were isolated and not related to each other.”

The number of cases will keep rising so we have to reinforce preventive measures,” he said, adding that in addition to the 149 deaths another 2,000 had been hospitalized with “grave pneumonia”, although at least half of that number had since made a full recovery.

At least half made a recovery? What about the other half? Hmmm...

hm I know...
I can't even determine weather it's the media who is blowing up numbers to spread a panic.. or the media hiding information to cover something up.

either way, something doesn't match up.

btw, over here in my part of Europe, this flu has totally disapeard out of our news so most people think it's over.

I realize I'm a few hours behind the discussion, but here....

"This facility will make it possible to accelerate important scientific work to develop new vaccines, diagnostics and treatments for diseases like anthrax, plague, hemorrhagic fevers, typhus, West Nile fever, SARS, influenza and drug-resistant tuberculosis," he said.

National Biocontainment Lab - Galveston, TX

UTMB National Lab

Here is a list of other Bio Labs and their designation from Wiki. I'm sure that all of the other level 4 labs have the same stockpile of virus at their installations.

Wiki List

If you guys can remember there were alot of rumors floating around about damage to the facility on Galveston island, last year after hurricane Ike. All reports say that there was no breach, but who knows. Maybe something from there was washed out with the flood waters, and later became our beloved H1N1.

VERY interesting throry indeed!!! If in fact a nasty cootie took a swim,it would fit into the "geographics" of apparently where the virus originated.
This would be something to watch/look into a bit more closely...I know people who are doing salvage and re-building up there and it's basically still a free for all at this point with little organization and lots of "easing" of rules.

I wanted to post what I posted on the other swine flu forum.........I know many of you bounce back and fourth like I do........

Originally posted by Cloudsinthesky
I finally received news from my source at the CDC......Again I am only passing information as it was given to me........

Originally when this started I was told this virus could go through three phases......

We are now at phase two I was told. This is where the viuse is constantly mutating from person to person. We have all seen the media reports of human to pig exposure in Alberta.........but there is also a case in the U.S. that is being covered up (I was not told where).

I was informed that the CDC is looking at all animals (mamals) for they have seen human to pig and pig to human from this virus........The potential of this spreading to all mamals is a great concern..........

I was informed that this virus can live up to 24 hours without having a host........Now I know this contradicts some post here as far as only 30 minutes......

The first three days of infection the person is highly contagious.........The virus runs for about 7 days........and it has spread all across the U.S. and beyound..........

As far as vaccines are concerned.....I am still being told to stay away from any anti viral or vaccine that you will see here in the near future.....

Stocking up on antibodies for the secondary infections was well as the other natural medicines already posted on this thread......

Universal percautions should be used and to stay away from large crowds and gatherings

I was told that this is far from being over.........

As far as phase three........we all know what that would being prepared is the message here......

Well our numbers are up in Illinois. Yesterday we had 9 confirmed cases in Illinois (5 in Chicago) and today we have 82 (34 in Chicago)

After reading your post, I'm wondering if the mutations are drastic enough that the virus is not identifiable by the current testing. If so, that would explain the "leveling off" that Mexico is experiencing. What began as H1N1 may be something totally different.
