Hopefully now that they have the genetics of this virus, they will be able to quickly produce a vacination to combat this virus.

thank guys but none of those are showing the conference, it's just ordinary sky news on there, not sky interactive....I'll wait for it to be uploaded to the WHO website a bit later and listen then

Re Horrid Henry, he doesn't normally watch it, and I agree it's a bloody awful show ! He hasn't seen it for weeks and weeks and he out of the blue remembered it was on today and as he doesn't try and copy Henry I don't mind too much....

Sadly it still takes around a year to create a vaccine..... and it wouldn't have gone through enough tests for me to ever entertain it *sigh*

I believe I now also have either the regular flu, or maybe a less virulent form of H1N1. Wonder how many have come down with it since they lowered the warning level in Mexico.

Now the kids are back in school, and it looks like it's still attacking at a steadily increasing pace. Could get ugly from here on out. Hope y'all get better quick xoxo

Did the WHO hold a conference today?

In reading the posts over the course of a few weeks, and considering the speculation of what Level 6 could produce in terms of limitations of personal freedoms, brought to mind the strange film "V for Vendetta." I personally know of many people who do not bat a eye when it was leaked that the CIA has read e-mails and text etc... from typical US citizens. They will say that it is all necessary in the quest for safety. What are we willing to sacrifice to "be safe?" I bet people will line up to take any new H1N1 vaccine even if it is virtually produced over night. Here is a quote from a review on the film. If you have not seen it, you may find it interesting in light of today's current climate.

"Fear became the ultimate tool of this government," says V (Hugo Weaving), the hero of V for Vendetta, as he speaks of the England of the near-future. America has been reduced to a shadow of its former self and England is ruled by a facist like state that has removed freedoms from the people in the guise of protecting them from evil. media-assault.com

A front page story on Washington Post website now hinting at the possibility that Swine Flu and Bird Flu could mix.

"(Virologist) Dr. Robert Webster said underestimating the swine flu virus would be a huge mistake.

"This H1N1 hasn't been overblown. It's a puppy, it's an infant, and it's growing," he said. "This virus has got the whole human population in the world to breed in _ it's just happened. What we have to do is to watch it, and it may become a wimp and disappear, or it may become nasty." The article speculates on the possibility that Swine Flu and Bird Flu could mix.

If the easily contracted Swine Flu mixes with Bird Flu, what I gather from news articles is that something like 60% of those infected would die rather quickly.

We must keep our vigilance, keep watching the news stories for hints at what's going on or what could happen.

There is a major, major news blackout on most of what's happening, but they are letting certain causes for worry leak out. Watch for what they are hinting at.

We must keep this thread going. I've noticed it slowing down since the partial news blackout hit last weekend.

Everyone, please keep looking for updates and info. Keep reading between the lines of what little news is getting out right now.

We must keep this thread going.

I posted this yesterday on a different thread and thought I would copy and paste it here. Part of the reason I felt it necesary to do this is because I once again paid my daily visit to the CDC H1N1 webpage.

Yesterday - Confirmed Cases 896
Today - Confirmed Cases 1639!

I certainly hope you don't have it. Good luck and hope you get better.

With regards to the number of people "confirmed" to have Swine Flu.... As has become my habit, I check the CDC webpage every day. The number yesterday was around 600+. Today when I checked it's up to almost 900 with two confirmed deaths (both in Texas). The following is from their website, so maybe we'll end up seeing the numbers increase exponentially (sp?)...


Increased Testing
CDC has developed a PCR diagnostic test kit to detect this novel H1N1 virus and has now distributed test kits to all states in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. The test kits are being shipped internationally as well. This will allow states and other countries to test for this new virus. This increase in testing capacity is likely to result in an increase in the number of reported confirmed cases in this country, which should provide a more accurate picture of the burden of disease in the United States.

Yet Dr Brion [sp?] just said that there are not enough confirmed cases of P2P and level 5 will be held as is...

That's because they are only seeing H2H in people returning from Mexico and passing it on to people close to them. They are not yet seeing H2H in the wider community, which I guess means something like person A passes it to person B who passes it to person C who passes it to person D etc ...Fukadu 2 days ago explained they want to see more "sustained" spread before going to level 6

MSNBC website has picked up the story from Washington Post... "expert says swine flu and bird flu could mix"

Also, Mexico is now confirming another dead... 45 confirmed dead.

It is now very eerie how you cannot find much at all in the media. Blackout in full force except for a tiny leak to warn of a superbug possibility down the road. I think the media is in propaganda mode and all flu news from now on will be very tightly controlled.

It may become more difficult to get flu news in the next week or so, seems like.

I think they want to see it more widespread across communities (rather then a few people) outside of the Americas....Then they'll raise the level.
