Transmission of Swine H1N1 In Scotland Signals Phase 6
The confirmed community transmission in Scotland, fulfills the WHO requirement of community transmission in two or more regions to rause the pandemic level from 5 to 6..
Therefore, a phase 6 designation should be announced in the near term.

All this virus lacks is one mutation to make it more severe and we have 1918 all over again, maybe worse. Its already very contagious, has a lengthy incubation period and can live on surfaces for 36 hours (wow ).
If that info from cloud is true then the public should be told this! albeit in a toned down version so they do not panic. Its ridiculous.
Even George Norry i have noticed that coast to coast has rarley touched the outbreak i wonder what gives????

Quoting Ecoparity from earlier post...
"Several large, alternative media channels were taken off youtube without warning (and more continue to be apparently). Rense has been offline for several days after the sat audio link was "attacked". (No one can pull off the scale of internet and sat "attacks" like these other than government sources)."
This seems to be true, but I would add that caution is necessary when listening to or reading the sites of Alex Jones, Jeff Rense, and George Noory. I monitored those sites as this virus progressed and they all took the slant that this virus is way over exaggerated and even called it a "hoax". They have guests on who spin the "hoax" angle. We on this thread know that this Novel H1N1 Flu is still spreading globally very, very fast and exponentially and is deadly in ways unlike any other previous flu virus.
Point is... it is up to us on this thread to weed out false from true for ourselves. It is up to us here to keep searching any and all available information, inside and outside, for news and leaks. We must remain vigilant.
Beware of disinfo. When the spin doctors are in full force, as they are now, there will be lots of disinfo out there. Obviously, they don't wantto go to Level 6. Apparently the intel agencies have put the kabosh on that. Behind-the-scenes, I imagine there are some heated debates among physicians in the know about the potential of this to spiral into a massive depopulation event (but I think these debates are not being reported because of "national security", etc).
If this virus can hang around in someone for 45 - 90 day with little or no fever and then kill with secondary pneumonia, cytokine storms... then it seems logical that this was lab made as a stealth attack virus (just a guess, on my part).
Look at media reports as if there are embedded words, phrases and themes that are meant to condition the public and slowly but surely lead the public (which have a herd mentality) in certain directions so as to avoid panic.
The partial to total news blackout continues worldwide.
This thread is the closest thing we've got to free press.

Q: If I am sick, how do I arrange to return to work?
A: Before returning to work, and based on the availability of health care services in your home country, you will be asked to provide documentation to your supervisor confirming that you have tested negative for the H1N1 virus and that you are allowed to return to work or, if you did contract the H1N1 virus, that you are no longer contagious and may return to work.
Q: If I do notify my supervisor, what will happen with that information?
A: The information will be kept confidential to the extent reasonably possible, but full confidentiality cannot be guaranteed. Depending on the circumstance, the company may need to advise other professionals that they should contact their health care provider based on their possible exposure. Also, depending on the circumstance, the company may need to report a known or suspected communicable illness to health authorities.
