I live in brimingham al, there was a confirmed case in madison co.

I used to live in Madison, Alabama. I can confirm this. I emailed back and forth with friends who are still there. The elementary school in town had two known cases. School is out in town for this week.

I'm in touch with a friend in Irondale, AL often.
Keeping an eye on the UAB thing ....

The CDC "is overwhelmed with testing," she said. Current testing turnaround time for results is 48 hours.

That's no longer on that article. (or I missed it)


Broward Health Department Director Paula Thaqi did not say how many cases were referred to the state for testing, but "because of enhanced surveillance, there have been many specimens that have been forwarded."


If it's no longer in the article ..... wow.
They sanitized the 'CDC is overwhelmed with testing'.

Yep, it was there. I saw it linked to in another one of the swine flu threads and read it on the site myself.

With that kind of scrubbing down with the news, we're not going to get anything decent unless we save every article to our hard disk the second it is released.

To know the truth, we must look at the first news of an event. Because after, line are removed like that.

Nice find. Not the first time it would happen. This is why our job is so important. As soon as someone get a news, we must take a copy of that text. Real important for analyzing evertyhing after.

A member of my family has flown to the United States and gone on a cruise.

In your personal opinion, on a scale of 1-10, considering the situation that we are in now, what do you think the chances are of them catching this flu?

From the figures I've seen at the rate of infection we'll have close to 100,000 infected by mid-June.

I'm going to go with a 4 on the scale of 1-10 for now. A cruise ship is a great place for infection spreading.

What will I be looking for now?

A couple of buzz words:

Mutation (s)
Africa
Asia
Amino Acids
Third World Death Rate
Resistance to Anti-Viral Drugs
Level 6
Possible Vaccine
Burn Out
Quarantine in Third World Countries



From the very beginning of this whole thing I have always thought that if this H1N1 got to Africa it would have a good chance of finding what it needed to become everything we all fear. I am now pretty confident that if you get the current virus and catch it early you will be able to make it through. If you allow it to set into your system and run it's course it will begin to get bad.
Once again, I will now shift my worry to Asia and Africa and hope and pray that this thing burns out.
I do not want to see this virus back in the fall. I do not think it will be good if it does.

The last, and mildest, of three pandemics during the 20th Century, it was first reported in Hong Kong in July, spreading swiftly through a densely populated area, and infecting 15 per cent of the country's population.

The outbreak only lasted six weeks in Hong Kong but within the first fortnight it had spread through Asia to northern Australia and Europe.

By September 1968, the virus entered California, carried by troops returning from the Vietnam War, and by December had spread through America.

The following year it spread through Japan, Africa and South America.

Deaths around the world peaked in December 1968 and January 1969 with the elderly being hit hardest.

However, the flu remained virulent and hit hard again the following winter. 30,000 people in England and Wales died from it, including 2850 in one week in January 1970.

The Hong Kong flu was the first known outbreak of the H3N2 strain. It arose in pigs infected with avian and human viruses and was soon transferred to humans.

Experts believe that thousands more might have died but had built up an immunity from the previous pandemic, the Asian flu virus, which had swept through the world in 1957, killing an estimated two million people.


Who'd've thought you'd experience two pandemics in your life? siiigghh.

I remember the Hong Kong flu very well...damned near killed me and my whole wing. I was stationed in Korea in response to the Pueblo crisis when it hit us. Everybody, and I mean everybody got sick enough to warrant 48-hour bedrest excuses from the medics. We had a morbid laugh about that, since we were working 18 to 55 hour days seven days a week under absolutely horrendous conditions at the time. I recall taking five minutes to put the ladder up on the bird then having to gather the will and strength to drag my sorry carcass up it, one rung at a time, resting between rungs, then having to wake the aircrew who had passed out pretty much as soon as they shut down the engines, then helping each other slowly back down the ladder. Try battling a flu encased in six layers of winter protection gear because the temperature was waaaay below zero (about 78 below or so at one point). Then add lice. About eight did die from the base. Makes me ill just remembering...


But the thing I'd like to emphasize here is that those of us who got it in Korea found that it recurred every time we changed climates: I and several others who transferred with me got ill a couple of weeks later, then again when we were all transferred again a few months later. It got less severe each time, but still knocked you on your butt for a couple of weeks.

I'd also like to point out that it, too, was a tri-species bug, but only had a 15% infection rate, and still killed 2,000,000, and the timing was lucky. This current one seems to have at least 4X the infection rate: I'll leave the math as an exercise for the student.

Some reports from La Gloria indicate that some who were ill in February or March and recovered are getting sick again. I'll try to find the link and post it. If someone already has that report would you mind putting up the link?

its starting to become interesting what anaylsts on BBC and Sky are saying. They say they expect the outbreaks to increase vastly in Africa and Asia. The analyst said he was very concenrned that mutation was likely to occur in Asia especially, citing it as the "hotbead of flu viruses".
