www.wired.com...

this is the first I've heard of them backtracking and putting out that it is not a cocktail but swine only.


Interesting. I would like to see another group confirm this finding. If it is so, then perhaps this is more like the 1956, 1976 years and not 1918.

I would also like to know why the original finding found something pretty drastically different.

Look at the 3rd result in this google search: Michigan University man made swine flu

Sometime in the past 24 hours Google robots searched the site and found the following sentence: "Evidence points this 2009 strain as a man made , not naturally occurring, ..."

Follow the link to the web site - not there.

Try searching entire web site - not there.

The quote has been deleted since Google indexed the news article. This matches up with the info I have from a contact that U of Michigan came out with info about virus being man made and were squashed immediately.

I've saved PDF of the search results, expect it to go away in the next 24 hours or so.

great. the Reno gazet journal in my home town is saying Swine FLu has been confirmed in Washoe County Nevada. www.rgj.com...&OAS_sitepage=news.rgj.com%2Fbreakingnews

this thing is moving fast and if an infant is nevada's first case im guessing that this far more wide spread than is being reported....just in time for cinco de mayo.

we have one confirmed case but im guessing there are far more cases lurking around this area and around the country

Any country that suspects or has verified such an event should urgently consult with WHO so that the situation can be jointly assessed and a decision made by the affected country if implementation of a rapid pandemic containment operation is warranted. Phase 4 indicates a significant increase in risk of a pandemic but does not necessarily mean that a pandemic is a forgone conclusion.

Phase 5 is characterized by human-to-human spread of the virus into at least two countries in one WHO region. While most countries will not be affected at this stage, the declaration of Phase 5 is a strong signal that a pandemic is imminent and that the time to finalize the organization, communication, and implementation of the planned mitigation measures is short.

Phase 6, the pandemic phase, is characterized by community level outbreaks in at least one other country in a different WHO region in addition to the criteria defined in Phase 5. Designation of this phase will indicate that a global pandemic is under way.


OK

implementation of a rapid pandemic containment operation

so what does this mean?

And if the numbers are true...

7 deaths for 26 infection... the kill rate is freaking high.

"We've seen swine influenza in humans over the past several years, and in most cases, it's come from direct pig contact. This seems to be different," said Dr. Arnold Monto, a flu expert with the University of Michigan. "I think we need to be careful and not apprehensive, but certainly paying attention to new developments as they proceed." CDC officials described the virus as having a unique combination of gene segments not seen before in people or pigs. The bug contains human virus, avian virus from North America and pig viruses from North America, Europe and Asia. It may be completely new, or it may have been around for a while and was only detected now through improved testing and surveillance, CDC officials said.

In Jakarta, Indonesian Heath Minister Siti Fadilah Supari yesterday said the virus could have been man-made, as she urged calm over its spread around the world. She did not elaborate but in the past she has said Western governments could be making and spreading viruses in the developing world to boost pharmaceutical companies' profits. "I'm not sure whether the virus was genetically engineered but it's a possibility," she said at a press conference. No cases of the disease have been reported in Indonesia.

No, JazzFest ends this Sunday, or it better, I bought tickets.


Haven't heard anything about that, but I kinda figured that was what was going on. We have a way of covering things up here :shk:

*EDIT I am not saying that is the case, just speculation.
