I'm being funny...Or am I??
Nicholas Grassly of Imperial College London and Andrew Rambaut of the University of Edinburgh, UK, have analysed the rate of spread. Their analysis is based on the small mutations that have accumulated in almost two dozen genetic sequences produced so far, from viruses collected from patients in Mexico and the US.
The limited sampling so far gives rise to considerable uncertainty in the estimate," cautions Rambaut. But if the rate at which genes mutate is about the same for this virus as for other H1N1 viruses, the number of mutations that have accumulated so far suggests it has been circulating since January – or even September 2008.

So the swine flu has geneticly changed 24 times since it started. I can't see how they can try and control it if its ever changing at that rate.

The thing that gets me is that this virus is a bridge to much worse..I understand that the gubmint has there backs against the wall with the economy and have to handle this with ''white gloves'' to avoid a panic and to further put us deeper in the hole..
Raising pandemic alert level to 6 still possible: WHO
GENEVA: The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Saturday that the risk of a pandemic caused by the A/H1N1 virus was still very high and there
was still the possibility to raise the alert level to Phase 6 from the current Phase 5.
"At the present time, I would still propose that a pandemic is imminent because we are seeing the disease spread," Michael Ryan, the agency's director for global alert and response, told a news briefing in Geneva.
"This is the time for us to prepare, and be ready," he said.

I fully agree, I also am still having breathing problems even after a month of being out of the hospital. My daughters asthma meds were uped to 4 xs a day instead of 2 times due to the breathing problems. My son also had breathing problems for about a week after the Bug was gone. I fully agree that I have never seen a bad flu like that. I had 2 flus this year and neither was as bad as the killer bug. We have family in Kentucky and they also had it. 2 of the 3 children got it and My sister inlaw that is pregnant got it. According to some folks here the bug was pretty much nationwide yet no warnings went out. I lost 9 pounds during the sickness, and my daughter lost 12 pounds. I wasnt to much sick on my stomach I was just far to weak to even sit and eat.
