I saw one report on Rense that an email from a hospital in mexico
claims 80 deaths now.

How reliable that is, I have no idea.

it's interesting to read comments from Mexicans on the BBC website:



I work as a resident doctor in one of the biggest hospitals in Mexico City and sadly, the situation is far from "under control". As a doctor, I realise that the media does not report the truth. Authorities distributed vaccines among all the medical personnel with no results, because two of my partners who worked in this hospital (interns) were killed by this new virus in less than six days even though they were vaccinated as all of us were. The official number of deaths is 20, nevertheless, the true number of victims are more than 200. I understand that we must avoid to panic, but telling the truth it might be better now to prevent and avoid more deaths.
Yeny Gregorio Dávila, Mexico City

The whole city is affected, I have a very bad feeling about this. Two of my friends at work are sick, they were sick for a couple of days, they went to the hospital and they sent them back to work. The doctor told them it was just a flu until Friday when the alarm was spread, then they were allowed to go home. I work in a call centre and I'm worried because there are no windows in the building so it cannot be ventilated and around 400 people work there.

We all have talked to our supervisor but no one has done anything not even sterilise or disinfect the area. We will be sick soon and, well, do the math - 400 can infect at least another two per day. The authorities say there's nothing they can do since it's a private company and I can assure you, the company I work for is not the only one like this in the whole city. Us workers don't have much protection from our government and if we want to keep our jobs we have to go anyway.

Gives a direct insight to how things are going down there, something you don't get off the Telly Box.

Take it for what it's worth but there's rumor that they might put military checkpoints at the Lincoln Bridge in NY.

Just saying.

good point FX. But I still see this as mostly hype. If it weren't and the gov was worried about shutting down businesses....THEY WOULD BE SAYING JUST THE OPPOSITE AND TRYING TO REASSURE THE GREAT CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY. If commerce falls in the US, then its lights out and they know it.

Since they lie and manipulate about everything, why would this be any different.

We all remember how concerned they were about our brothers in New Orleans. They had plenty of time and money to hire private contractors/mercenaries to control crowds, among other things. They do not care about us, they care more about property, commerce and maintaining their club (aka status quo).

Well...I'm going down to the store for a few ORDINARY things. I think I'll fake a cough, and see what kind of response i get. LOL.

Where did we say that we would take vaccines? I won't for sure. The HPV vaccines and Baxter's BS... no thank you.

And vaccines given by the Bilderberg group... and the government who tortures people and is in eugenics... no thank you.



For those who think it's not infecting the young. I heard it infected two high school kids in Texas. The newest third case in Texas is of a 10 year old. So I guess its now 10-49. This strain will mutate like crazy.

No we said it would not KILL the young. Because it's the immunosystem who kills you, not the virus.

I thought it was the inflammation brought on by the immune system response which causes the death. Stop the inflammation and you live. Vitamin-c in very high doses stops inflammation. Here's a link to the thread.

Mexico’s Calderon Declares Emergency Amid Swine Flu Outbreak


Mexican President Felipe Calderon declared an emergency in his country’s swine flu outbreak, giving him powers to order quarantines and suspend public events.

Martial law! How soon before it's declared in the US and like during Katrina, those powers are abused and guns are taken?

How the virus kills you:

However, it is not the virus that is directly causing the damage to the lungs - it is the body's own response to infection.

Immune system proteins that can damage infected tissue were found at much higher levels following H1N1 infection compared with other viral infections.

After that your lungs are full of blood and you drown in your own blood.

EDIT:

Sources report four additional fatal swine influenza cases registered in Mexico; total reaches 68.

Mexico gov't decrees special powers in flu crisis

Saturday's decree, published in Mexico's official journal, gives the government power to isolate sick people, enter homes or workplaces and regulate air, sea and land transportation to try to stop further infection


Link to Article

When this starts to blow up here I guess we can expect marshal law?

Looks like I got out of nursing just in time. I haven't had a job since February and when my daughter who graduates nursing school this May asked why I was getting out, I told her that I wanted to be gone before the bioterrorism attack victims started pouring through the doors.

Rather than masks, may I suggest a personal air purifier? It's a bit of a battery hog so if you get one then get the charger too.

minimate air purifier

They're on sale now, too. A hundred dollars is a small price to pay to keep from breathing in deadly viruses. Thinking of keeping my son home from school for a few days until we have more information on the spread of this thing.

Thanks for the info. And - good for you for keeping your son home. It won't hurt him to not be in school Everyone should consider keeping themselves and their families safe first.

We don't have to put on brave faces and take chances because that is what the outside world considers "normal." It is just what we have been led to believe we have to do

What we really need to do - is use our critical thinking- and follow our gut.
We don't have a government or a mainstream media outlet
that will tell us the truth. This is why we need to use our common sense -
It's a great time to learn how to think for ourselves again.

''Bird Flu Distributed by Dept of Homeland Security'' remember this thread on ATS ,anyone think this is relevant . At the very least it's suspicious.I know they are calling it bird flu but made it was swine flu.

I wonder why if more than 200 have died in Mexico that none have died in the United States? I find it very strange that they would report the cases of illness are mild in the United States but the cases in Mexico are being reported as fatal.

What do they have down there that we don't? What is the common link to this being fatal? It's almost like its geographic? If it's south of the border you are a dead man walking. If you are in Kansas it's mild and no big deal? Strange...
