well, I'm here in NY, about an hour and a half north of NYC..... we have special reports interrupting regular broadcasting every 15 minutes. They have closed down 3 elementary schools in Queens (near NYC), over 4000 students are effected. One of the teachers is in critical condition and cases are spring up left and right. Evidently, this has been coming to fruition over the past week. Since May 6th according to Mayor Bloomberg. Just when I thought I didn't have to pay attention anymore..........ughhhhhh. My husband works in that area and I've been worried the whole time he's going to contract it and start spreading it around up here in the suburbs
I guess I have to keep worrying.

Queens Educator Critically Ill With Swine Flu; 3 Schools Closed
By Anemona Hartocollis AND Javier C. Hernandez
Updated, 7:43 p.m. | In the first serious case of swine flu in New York City, an assistant principal of a Queens middle school has been hospitalized and is on a ventilator, officials announced Thursday. The city closed that school, and two others with large clusters of flu-like symptoms. All three schools are to remain closed through next week.

Do we have any info re the age of the persons hospitalized?? They must know by now whether there is a clear trend of young healthy people getting seriously hit with it.

I'm sensing a strong upswing in the reported cases which timing wise doesn't make me feel all that positive. We're right at the cusp of the first batch of infected hitting the second phase (day 10 to 20) of the theorized "long time line" version of the pig flu.

I have to wonder how much we're not getting in the reports, some of the actions being taken seem aggressive vs. one or two cases. We've had ongoing, active infections of students in schools across the country, even the NY schools and no further actions were taken.

Either they see the upswing and need to shut down to avoid having to explain a noticeable number of missing students and faculty or the severity of the current cases has them worried about a more lethal variant. Of course, if they have tracked infections and are starting to see people hitting a secondary phase the reaction would be in line with this as well.

Keep your eyes open and watch for more closings and for the media coverage to move up a notch or two from where it's been over the past week.

Just caught the large number of infected and "missing" students. I wouldn't count on this being isolated to the schools in one area. . .

Seeing these latest reports of deaths I'm reminded of the strong statement my contact made which I posted some time ago:



Watch for the terms "underlying issue", "organ, heart, lung, systematic failure", "pulmonary edema", "atypical, viral or secondary pneumonia" . . .


I need to circle back and confirm what his point was. We know the reported deaths all list some form of "underlying _______ condition" and there has been a rapid increase in obituary listings which contain the same keywords. I need to know if the purpose is to be able to detect the hidden deaths or if there is something more involved at play.

If you read through the article you posted there's a lot of sick kids. At one of the schools 241 kids missed class with "flu symptoms". The other schools vary but all show around 50 missing kids and 10 or less confirmed, some in pretty bad shape.

The more I look at this and think about the early NY school closings and confirmed cases the more I'm getting that vibe this is a second phase infection with pretty serious issues.

One of my contacts sent me this same article and flagged it as being one to keep an eye on.

Stars for you, good job.

Forgot the important part -
The article originally said the principle was "near death" but that reference is gone now.

The death in Arizona happened days ago, they just now reported it.

Three NYC schools closed due to flu outbreak



New York - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced Thursday that three schools have been closed due to swine flu outbreaks.

Bloomberg said the assistant principle in one of the schools is in critical condition, and four students have confirmed cases of swine flu.

Meanwhile hundreds of students from the Queens district have been sent home due to flu symptoms, including 241 absent students from one middle school on Thursday.

All three locations are special education schools and have more than 4,000 students.

Bloomberg said the three schools would be closed for at least a week.



At a special education school I wonder how much hands on contact between student teacher is involved compared to a normal school enviroment.

Does anyone else find it a little odd that all three schools were special education? What's the percentage of special ed schools vs regular? That ratio cubed would be the odds of this just happening. IDK weirder things have definitely happened, but just thought to point it out.

Now that I think about it, perhaps learning disabled kids are more likely to develop friendships together. Maybe that could explain this? Or maybe I'm just making a connection that's nothing more than a 'coincidence'.

(I'm keeping an index of "critical" posts now and would like to go back through the thread and capture the original posts along with the confirmations so they can be organized into link lists separated by subject. It's an involved and tedious task now due to the length of the thread. I would welcome the assistance of others who have time and agree with me as to it's importance)


I've been thinking the same thing. Let me know how I can help.

How long are people watching the MSM going to keep buying this underlying condition crap!!!

they start saying these poor kids in the schools are dieing from this underlying condition crap and people are going to start to question this stuff.. People are really going to be angry and that could make this so much worse.

This trying to hide this stuff from us is really starting to get on my nerves!!

Thanks again guys for all the great info.. it is really keeping my eyes!! open and keeping me on my toes!!!

while doing some research, I stumbled on to this.




Spanish flu, sometimes called the “Spanish Lady,” received its misnomer thanks largely to thanks largely to WARTIME CENSORSHIP . Both the Allied forces and Central Powers had amassed huge losses due to Spanish flu, but the warring parties stifled reports to hide information that could be valuable to the enemy.


Maybe this is the reason there are No media reports? Especially if the numbers are tremendous. With things really heating up in North Korea, Pakistan, Afghanistan it makes us way too vulnerable.

As a result of the wartime censorship, people had no warnings how lethal the flu of 1918 was. In turn this created a huge distrust of the government.
People were left with literally no one to help them or so they thought. There were so many conflicting reports, the people decided to trust themselves instead of their leaders. With many the second guessing cost them their lives.

Wow. Is history repeating itself? Not that we trusted our government before
the news of this H1N1. Can't get over the similarity though.

I have said a few times now and I say again... Look into the Rife Machine. There are links here on ATS and on the web abroad. The rife machine ( a real one... even I own an audio unit but it is a real square wave device) will cure a varity of disease.... I have every reason to believe that it will be effective against swine flu too.

I have tried to talk about it before... but the claims about it seem to fantasitic for even the most open minded..;. but it is real and it works... I have seen it work ( to my own suprise) on too many differnt kinds of folks..... Look into it yall...

In my mind it is the only thing that is full proof protection against the captian tripps...

I know that one of special education schools in Queens that was closed previously was a school for autistic children. Though these children tend to not develop many personal friendships, teachers/ staff are HANDS ON all day long with autistic children due to the nature of the disability. It is not uncommon for a great deal of body fluids to be exchanged in the course of the day. If a special education classroom is self-contained, students and staff are in close contact all throughout the day.

This entire thread is full of doom and gloom. I'm the one trying to be positive....



The sheer amount of sensationalist, dramatic, over-the-top posts gets tiresome. And it's not fair to those who do panic easily...



I personally think this is a typical flu outbreak...


Kiora,

At the risk of diluting and polluting this thread a bit more, I feel it necessary to just respond to fleabit. So let me get this off my chest quickly. (Feel free to skip this post and get back 'to work' if you wish.)

Fleabit, in case you have forgotten, this is a SWINE FLU NEWS AND UPDATES THREAD.

Translation: It is for members to post news and updates about the swine flu and related issues which they have found, heard or been given. It is about sharing research and intel obtained from the msm, relevant organisations, from medical people, from insiders etc. We have started this thread as a way to share, store and discuss that research.

As you have been following this thread from the start you will notice that there is not much random, opinion based info.

Why?

Because it is a news and updates thread!

The majority of opinions you do/will read are our personal discussions, thoughts or translations regarding that particular piece of news and updates. Having random opinions and ideas about the general topic of swine flu is relevant too of course, but there are other threads better suited for that type of discussion. Some of us here read &/or participate in those ones too.

This particular one is a huge thread. We don’t want to wade through posts that are not constructive to the intended discussion it was designed for. Your posts, including the replies from members defending themselves (AND including this post by me! Sorry!), is just polluting and diluting the discussion.

You say you're being positive. You're not! All you are doing is disrupting the flow of information. What youre doing is asking us to censor of our information to avoid scaring the people - what?! Are you kidding me! We get enough of that BS from other "channels" thank you very much.

All we want to read here, on THIS thread, is about swine flu news and updates, and discussions relating to those swine flue news and updates. Period. End of story. Take the bickering elsewhere.

If you have 1. news and updates, or 2. Something to contribute regarding said news and updates, then do so. We are open to hearing it!

If you have news and updates that have an alternative view from the majority of research being posted here, PLEASE share it with us. We want ALL news and ALL updates regardless whether it conforms to a particular line of enquiry or not. Bring it all on I say!

If you 1. don't have news and updates, and 2. nothing constructive to contribute when discussing those news and updates, or 3. only have general thoughts and ideas about the swine flu, then either don't post, or move onto another thread.

If this thread is as "tiresome" as you put it, don't read. Nobody is forcing you, or anyone else to participate.

If you or anyone else is too scared about the information shared here, do not look. Make up your own mind and decisions based on the (limited) information obtained from alternative, more 'official' sources.

Oh, and as for this thread being all doom & gloom - well what do you expect! Its a swine flu news & updates thread FFS! Its not going to be all roses and teaparties now is it.

Frankly, for such a dark topic the thread contributors have been trying hard to keep it both informative AND positive to a large extent. Geez, some of them even have a sense of humour showing - heaven forbid! (you didn't hear it from me...)
