The WHO has confirmed a back log of "thousands" in Mexico and has asked the Mexicans to go back to the beginning for each case. Sooner or later the real figure will be released.

Update:

Wow someone said in that blog this flu has only a 5 percent mortality rate. Five out of every 100 people is a lot, isn't it?

It would be nice to know just what is really going on in Mexico. I've seen everything from a doomsday scenario to a very mild situation. It's confusing.

And with all that is going on, our Governor in NY decides to annouce Thursday that he is going to have 60 Foreign Trade Commissioners, from 39 countries, in WNY next week. Anyone else see this as a really bad idea?

I mean, you figure each of the 60 will bring at least 2 assistants, that means 180 people, from 39 countries roaming around a city in the middle of a potential pandemic. Not the most brilliant of ideas if you ask me.

Scientists see this flu strain as relatively mild

www.latimes.com...


In fact, the current outbreak of the H1N1 virus, which emerged in San Diego and southern Mexico late last month, may not even do as much damage as the run-of-the-mill flu outbreaks that occur each winter without much fanfare.

Let's not lose track of the fact that the normal seasonal influenza is a huge public health problem that kills tens of thousands of people in the U.S. alone and hundreds of thousands around the world," said Dr. Christopher Olsen, a molecular virologist who studies swine flu at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in Madison.

They had it during a live press conference on CNN just now, I have the office TV in the back on mute so I can glance at it every now and then without driving everyone else crazy and saw it when I passed by.

I agree with you 100% but I don't think that is realistic. I have 3 kids in 3 different public schools [elementary, middle, and High school], and I work in a office building/laboratory and overheard a woman making travel plans for next week that included Argentina, Brazil and Peru, and this was just one of the executives.


Im getting the feeling that maybe humans were not meant to have a global economy, or society.

Don't know the answer to that. What does history say with the 1918 flu? Did those infected in the first wave have an immunity to the deadly wave, or were they even more succeptable?
