Could be the reporter was just saying that by the definitions of the level, basically we are at 5, not necessarily that it is.

You are absolutely right about this. I just took a short walk to get some lunch and it's a very nice day out here in Charlotte.

Like I have preached in almost every post I make follow the money trail


Novanax, Inc

www.novavax.com...


Novavax, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVAX) is a clinical-stage biotechnology company, creating novel vaccines to address a broad range of infectious diseases worldwide using advanced proprietary virus-like particle (VLP) technology. The Company produces these VLP based, potent, recombinant vaccines utilizing new and efficient manufacturing approaches.



The stock NVAX was trading at $1.00 on April 13 and it shot up $3.00 before the outbreak hit the media........Why? Follow the money trail.

Below is the chart. Update: You will have to upload there symbol NVAX

Keep in mind that on the national news last evening, it was reported that in dozens and dozens of suspected cases, no actual testing would take place to confirm swine flu in order not to overload labs.

regarding my last post:

What does a partial closure entail? What does it mean? Does it even matter now?

Mexican Toddler in U.S. Dies From Swine Flu


I thought this was important regarding the child who died in Houston.

On April 13, the child was admitted to the hospital and then transferred the next day to a hospital in Houston, where he died on Monday. The C.D.C. confirmed that the child was “in fact infected with the swine virus,” on Wednesday, Dr. Persse said.

This child was hospitalized for over two weeks before death. How can we be sure that the same will not hold true for others? That a week from now, maybe two, we won't hear about deaths here because the person fought it off that long?


[edit on 29/4/2009 by lynn112]


The article on MSN said the child also had underlying health problems. So, who knows if he died from swine flu, and not just complications?


Perhaps we should consider that the media reported NO cases there while this child did indeed have the MANBIRDPIG virus the entire time. Only after his death do they admit this.

Makes one consider the possibility that those reporting from Mexico who claim there are more deaths than the MSM is reporting could be correct.

george4title has a channel at YouTube and he does some great on-location reporting. Check out his walk through the San Diego hospital, which was full of hacking and coughing people. Later, George got sick and was vomitting but declared he and a friend would travel to Mexico to get the real story.

I say check out his channel and see what he finds out.

this says to me that the child brought the killer strain into this country, may have infected who knows how many and where are they now


I don't think the child had any contact with the public in the Houston area. This morning on our local news they said the child was brought into the country and originally arrived in Brownsville. Then the family was brought to Houston via a medical transport so there was no contact with the general public. I haven't heard anything about where the parents of the child are now though. I hope they are being closely watched by the doctors...

That's interesting. I don't remember seeing this yet. I wonder how many tests they are not performing. This would of course bring the numbers down, possibly a LOT if this a common tactic.

From my understanding, it is only with Texas - not the full border.
