I found this article from a year ago while researching H1N1 strains of the flu virus.

Medical News Today

What I don't know is if this is relevant to what we are seeing now. do different strains with different replication factors have the same name?



Thanks for the article! Imo. I see that the article points out that swine flu (H1N1) has been recently, over the past couple of years, increasing in replication. Which means more likelyhood of a mutation that could be dangerous... Looks like we had the facts back then that swine flu was coming back...yet we always ignore the warning signs... sigh..just my two cents

You know what the real question is here?

Why do it NOW? What is the point of releasing the virus at this stage and what is it a distraction for?

Dont close the eyes on the back of your head.

Mexico Asks Bars, Churches in Capital to Close; Won't Order Offices Shut
www.bloomberg.com...

April 26 (Bloomberg) -- Mexico requested the closure of bars, movie theaters and churches in the capital to fight an outbreak of deadly swine flu, while stopping short of ordering workplaces shut on concern about the economic impact.

The effort to fight the virus has a “high potential for disruption,” Finance Minister Agustin Carstens said today while speaking to reporters at the International Monetary Fund’s spring meetings. It’s too early to gauge the economic impact, he said.

The epidemic, which has claimed as many as 81 lives, threatens to deepen the country’s economic decline after U.S. demand for Mexican exports including cars and home appliances plummeted. The Mexican economy shrank 1.6 percent in the fourth quarter and probably contracted another 4.2 percent in the first three months of this year, according to a central bank survey of 32 economists published April 1.

The Swine flu seems to be calming down in Mexico. I don't think this thing will get that bad...but don't quote me on it.

I found this link spreadsheets.google.com...

It shows that there have been cases in Spain, France, Isreal, and Scotland (which I have not seen mentioned on the news).

This so called virus contains bird flu genes the reason bird flu infects only birds is because there temps run at 106 as a humans is 98.6 that is why bird flu has not taken of the way they wanted it to in humans. Wonder why this so called virus is much worse in much hotter Mexico.The pig virus could only be the carrier wait till it warms up here summer is a coming.

Well I live out in the Hollywood area but away from the swarms of tourists.. thankfully
I didn't see anyone taking any precautions, at least were I am...
Business as usual until a mass of folks get ill I guess... nobody is really talking about it on the street... prob because they haven't said much on the MSM.
Thinkin about going to the woods for awhile and get away from people till this all settles down.
These sure are some interesting times....
be safe all

Sorry to pick on you, but would people lay off the crazy sauce for this thread? There are plenty of other threads all linking this virus outbreak to the NWO, Martial Law, FEMA Death Camps, Ethnic cleansing, genocide... blah blah blah.

There is NO EVIDENCE FOR ANY OF IT!

None.

This is a virus, it is mutating, it isn't shown to be "manufactured" or "created", there's no evidence that it was "released" or accidentally escaped from a "top secret government lab".


Please, I'd love to see just one thread on here about this valid and relevant subject without the stupidly wild conspiracies invading it. There's enough of that already, please just go to one of the many other threads that link this outbreak to whatever little fantasy scenario you've conveniently hooked it up to.

World flu epidemic fear rises, Mexicans take refuge
www.reuters.com...

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Fears of a global swine flu pandemic grew with new infections in the United States and Canada on Sunday, and millions of Mexicans hid indoors to avoid a virus that has already killed up to 81 people.

While the only deaths have been in Mexico, the flu is spreading with 20 cases in the United States and six in Canada, and possible cases as far afield as Europe, Israel and New Zealand.

Offering a glimmer of hope in Mexico, President Felipe Calderon said most of the roughly 1,300 people in the country suspected of having the flu have been given a clean bill of health.

U.S. tries get a handle on flu outbreak
www.reuters.com...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States declared a public health emergency on Sunday because of an outbreak of swine flu that has infected 20 people across the country and is suspected of killing up to 81 people in Mexico.

Health and security officials announced steps to release some of the U.S. stockpiles of the anti-flu drugs Tamiflu and Relenza. They recommended that local authorities plan for possible school closures and that anyone with symptoms stay at home to reduce the possibility of spreading the illness.

The outbreak is yet another distraction for President Barack Obama as he focuses on rescuing the economy from its worst crisis in decades. His administration will also be mindful of the damage to former President George W. Bush over his government's inept handling of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Let me reply to that in post that I made in one of the other (identical) threads on this topic:

Let me take off my sanity hat here for a second and delve into the realm of the really weird conspiracy theory.

This comes at a very interesting time. First, let's be straight, this flu is more virulent and more dangerous than the regular flu, but it is not some kind of superbug. Granted, it has not yet mutated, but, even in the event of mutation, we are looking at the vast majority being sick, but not coming close to dying.

Ok, that out of the way... let's look at the timing of the pandemic rhetoric in view of the United States political community.

Who is coming up for confirmation in the Senate this week? It's Obama's last major cabinet choice, the controversial Kansas Governor, Kathleen Sebelius. And what Department is she going to head up? Health and Human Services. Coincidence that there is a crisis when we need a head of a Department... one who might have been voted down by the Senate?

Ok... so that was a little freaky, but, wait... what is this? The Democrats in the House are proposing major health care legislation this week to be attached, in an unprecedented fashion, to the budget. This formerly only emergency procedure was going to be used for partisan bickering. But now, we need to have health care reform passed... because of the flu.

And lastly, Obama just got back from a staggeringly negative trip from Central America and Mexico where there was clearly a lot of talk about the problems in those states. And the day after the President leaves, a man who came in contact with him in Mexico City winds up dead of the virus.

I don't know what I'm insinuating. However, kinda spooky, eh?

Edit: Spelling

Touche, you got him beat there. This is the place of conspiracies. Anyways- Do you guys think it is slowing down in Mexico? I think it is, supposedly the 1300 infected people have been given a clean bill of health and the official death report is only at 86. I think it is losing steam, at least there. Opinions?

Canada confirms 6 swine flu cases



More expected



OTTAWA, Canada—Health officials here on Sunday confirmed six cases of the potentially deadly swine flu, with authorities warning more severe cases could develop.

Four cases were confirmed on Canada's eastern coast in the province of Nova Scotia and two others in the western-most province of British Columbia, according to local authorities and Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq.

"The swine flu symptoms are relatively mild and the patients are recovering," Aglukkaq told reporters, adding that "these cases are likely not the last we'll see in Canada."

I think its speeding up, before it was stated that 3-4 have died a day in Mexico for more then 3 weeks from a doctor in Mexico,

Now there appears to be 9 deaths today and its in 5-6 more places.

maps.google.com...


MY feelings is if it took a while to get a death rate din Mexico, maybe it will take a few weeks to get rooted in our states/provinces.

These Vaccines will not help the issue...seeing how its" a novel virus" how will they know it will work. Most of us know how vaccines has a small dose of the actual virus inside of it. thus to build up an immunity. But with this virus the immune system Attacks the HOST!!!!!! which would make one insane to think the vaccine will help

I'm just keeping my eyes and ears out to see when/if it goes fatel in other countries
