I don't know about everyone else but I'm all ears for alternate theories as to why the case counts are being under-reported. People assume it's an effort to prevent panic but something about that doesn't "feel" right even though it seems like a reasonable explanation. They sure don't seem to mind telling us the next wave in the fall will be some kind of doomsday bug now, do they?

My son had the 5th disease about a year ago. he is 3 now. When it starts to go away they should get an unbelievable rash all over the body. that is when the fifth disease is no longer contageous. If there is no rash then it wouldnt be 5th desease I believe. if I can find a picture of my son when he was getting over 5th disease I will post it
Well, with respect to the H1N1 flu conflict, the legal argument is simple: "Even though the type A, strain H1N1 triple assortment clade flu virus evolved in the USA, the clade isolated in Mexico is ever so slightly different, so this one's not American. Don't even call it North American. Furthermore, the Mexican triple assortment clade of type A, strain H1N1 flu is being transmitted directly from person-to-person, not from pigs to people; therefor, it is not a swine flu anymore. Don't call it swine flu. The name hurts the pork industry. And don't tell anyone the truth about what's really going on because H1N1's spread can't be contained; it's too late to stop it and there's no point trying; therefor, providing accurate information to the public constitutes pointless and thereby "unnecessary interference with international traffic and trade," which is specifically prohibited under international law. In any event, overpopulation is a significant global issue - a major culling is in order and long overdue."
World Health Organisation spokesman Dick Thompson said the agency may raise its pandemic level from five to its highest alert, level six.
