Here is some pathology-

www.kansascity.com...

I noticed this from a comment-

The way the pandemic has spread so far, already shows the difference between now and the 1918 pandemic. The virus today is already in virtually every continent before it even spread locally in any country or state. The 1918 pandemic took weeks to reach other countries.

With 19 confirmed deaths out of roughly 800 confirmed cases, that represents a mortality rate of 2.4%. The 1918 Spanish Flu killed about 2.75% of those it infected, so this one isn't that far off.

It's a small world after all, Walt.

A texan dies of Swine flu... hmmm. and from the source ..




There were still signs, however, of the virus that set off world health alarms. A Texas woman who lived near the Rio Grande and a popular border crossing was confirmed as the 28th person — only the second outside Mexico and the first U.S. resident — to die from the virus.


so.. there was another SF death related outside of Mexico? Haven't kept up much .. but.. haven't heard this from the MSM...

They are referring to the Mexican youth who crossed the US border and died in the US. Woman in Tx is a resident of US.

I read that article about the Texas woman who died of SF but it left out her name and whether she was Mexican-American. Anyone have further details on this woman?

For some reason the MSM has droped this one pretty quick. From watching all the numbers though it still seems to be moving right along, maybe even picking up speed.

I really think there is something weird going on? Why would they drop it so quick, when it is at a level 5. Does anyone still think that they will raise it to a alert level 6?

I am still really keeping an eye on this and taking all of the needed steps to protect myself? I dont think we are safe yet?

if TPTB are covering this up to prevent a massive panic they will not raise the level to 6. they would wait til it was obvious that mass numbers of people were dying.

i spoke to a first responder in iowa today and he told me the state officials informed them that 500 people were tested in iowa and only one person was positive.

he was also told that no more cases would abound right now.
i will add they are telling first responders that the virus will be watched closely in the southern hemisphere because its winter/flu season down there almost and they should be ready for something in the fall and winter if this thing mutates or worsens.

i still dont understand why the police are guarding the 750,000 courses of tamiflu in iowa if we are only expected to have one case.

who the hell would risk stealing that stuff if it wasnt necessary?

I think the MSM had a very large nudge to get it off there breaking news list...The numbers dont lie,well they do..But look at the raise across the board,and look at what other nations are doing...if higher measures are taken,with no raise of media awareness,theres something brewing in the lull..
A possible scenario,
the lull in the MSM takes attentions off more drastic measures being set up,as logistics do take time to put into place...I can garantee that if infact forced innoculations are put in motion,citys will become a place you do not want to be...How would they force shots onto the part of the city were you need a ''peice'' to fell somewhat safe..

Its gonna sneek up on most of the population..

That is exactly what I think!! It is gonna sneak up and people that havent been paying attention are gonna be like what #.

It was just dropped to quickly for something to not be up. I really hope I am wrong? Lets just all keep our heads up and keep this thread alive!!

it was probably someone very high up who told the MSM to STFU cuz you are scaring people and that is going to kill the economy.

it is already on life support and if schools start closing, and people start skipping work, and hospitals start filling up, that would be the nail in the coffin.

Just thinking out loud..

Having seen the video of the couple saying that a good freind over heard talks of fema and martial law in the mid-to late summer..

Having info saying that this flu was out and about months prior to the first official word on the new...

Could it be that the couple that put that video on you tube saying that a trusted source over heard that in mid-late summer martial law would start to be exercised..

that in fact this bug was reconized as a very serious strain to be delt with in the comming fall?

I dont put much credibilty to you-tubers,but its all fitting together quite nicely isnt it..Especially with the economy being in the toilet..
