I have followed this closely due to being close to where the 2 confirmed are in Monklands Hospital.

This is my opinion based on what Ive seen, read and from contacts who are involved.

When will people realise that this is all based on making money. Flu is a killer, always has been. All Ive seen are media outletts making huge false claims that are shot down. They have lied about deaths, about numbers and about who said who to who.

The 23 suspected in Scotland were broadcast as 23 in total from the UK (Midlands included). I know for a fact their are only 2 confirmed cases in Scotland and none of the others are infected at this time.

When was the last time someone in Authority actually stated the figures world wide without changing that info later. Its the flu, it kills, dont get sucked into this hype and scaremongering.

the statistics are so unreliable because the affects of the swine flu at the current time are much the same as influenza A. theres only 26 confirmed deaths from the flu and 160 suspected. i know it doesn't sound like much but it is very contagious by the looks of it and could very well mutate into something much more dangerous. at the moment there is too much hype about it. and it seems not very dangerous but it seems most biologists etc around the world seem scared. maybe because it will almost definately mutate or because its quite like the spanish flu. it is a descendant of the spanish flu. which pigs caught and have kept over the last century which has mutated.

Hey, i didnt read all the pages here but i would like to report something that happened last monday here in Geneva - Switzerland.

Last monday at around 18:00 a package containing the swine flu samples exploded in a intercity train wagon filled with passangers.
They said there is no dangers to those in contact with the swine flu virus presented in the situation as it belong to a category (B-3373) without danger........

The news seems to have slowed down doesn't it. I went on google news and there aren't so many new stories...up until yesterday they were coming through every few minutes with updates. Twitter is quiet too . All that talk yesterday of going to phase 5 and awaiting confirmation of H2H in the States and today very little except alot of contradictions in figures.

Mayor of New York confirmed human-to-human transmission and Australia has excess of 100 case.

Germany has confirmed three cases today as well. The UK government will be sending us all leaflets, so they're not worried then

This is a lecture on how hospitals will treat the dying from a massive outbreak/pandemic. It says who will live, who will die (babies/elderly) and how gracious the environment will be. NOT! Pay close attention to the first speaker.

OMG

UK Gov has put in order for face masks, erms were they not supposed to have all of this already????

So much for them being prepared!

Think they need to get thier fingers out of thier backsides, especially for the front line staff, who are going to face the brunt of this, if this spreads across the UK.

Unless you work in the healthcare or residential care sector, you will not receive a mask.

A Doctor on Sky news are saying not to buy masks or surgical masks, they wont last long or will not stop, you from being infected. Buying them would give you a false sense of security.




Unless you work in the healthcare or residential care sector, you will not receive a mask.


That is why they are putting in this order for the masks? Do they not have enough to cover the front line staff who will face the brunt of this.
