U.S. Begins Border Screening For Swine Flu
Government Responds To Outbreak; Schools In 4 States Close Where Students Had Confirmed Cases
www.cbsnews.com...

(CBS/AP) The White House says "don?t panic," yet the race is on to contain an outbreak of swine flu that has proven to be deadly in Mexico where there are now more than 100 deaths, with more than 1,600 suspected cases.

The United States launched border screening for swine flu exposure Monday morning. U.S. border officials will be asking travelers about fever and illness, looking for signs of people who are ill.

The swine flu has spread at least seven other countries, including Spain, the first confirmed case outside of North America. Spain's Health Ministry said the patient is a young man who had recently returned from Mexico where he had been as part of his university studies.

Pigs are good vectors for human viruses. The H1N1 has been around for many years, the most recognizable occured in 1976 at Ft. Dix infecting 12 soldiers and killing one and again in 1988 in WI which was a human and pig direct contact. What makes this one interesting isn't that the combination is strange because most H1N1 pig strain carries avian but that fact that the WHO and CDC cannot pin point it's origin. Nobody has seemingly been exposed to pigs and none of the piggies tested are carrying this particular strain, in fact this strain is new so they are working with an unknown.

Please calm down.
Of course you wouldnt have immunity to something you've not been exposed to previously....
All versions of flu routinely mutate ; some studies show they float around in the troposphere for ages before anyone contracts them...

Just becauses you might contract it; it doesnt mean you will die.
If it was an unknown airbourne disease that kills on contact it wouldnt be called Swine flu; it's be called Swine Related Guaranteed Death.

The clue is in "Flu" meaning you might catch a flu variant at some point; not a deadly disease.
If you're looking for a conspiracy; have a look into how much Bio-Pharma companies charge for un-necessary flu vaccines/

Hi everyone, well, the last time I posted was Saturday night and was in the middle of having "something" myself. I have been in bed since then even though I have came in to work today. I still feel like crap and really think I should go home.
I haven't had a fever, so I think it is just a sinus infection/nasty cold.

However, I heard on the news this morning that two cases are being tested here in Indiana. I can't find anywhere in our local news where these cases are from, which I find pretty irritating. What is bothering me is last weekend my husband and I went out of town to a major university town for a quick getaway, fun and barhopping. I wonder if the cases they are testing are from a college settingsince many have just returned from spring break?...we were around a LOT of kds!

I apologize if I sound rambling. I am trying to hurry since I'm at work and like I said I still feel horrible.I hope you follow what I am trying to say!
Thanks

Swine flu: 'inevitable flu pandemic' would be fourth in a century
www.telegraph.co.uk...

Pandemics are characterised both by the number of people affected and by the fact that apparently young and healthy people tend to be affected as severely as elderly people and more vulnerable groups. The word pandemic comes from the Greek "pan", all, and "demos", meaning people.

When a pandemic does emerge, it may occur in more than one wave, several months apart, according to Chief Medical Officer Dr Liam Donaldson.

In recent years other potential pandemics, such as avian flu and Sars, have been identified as possible future public health emergencies, and closely monitored by health experts.

I don't think anyone is panicking, I think people are wanting to be well informed. And to answer what you posted actually Influenza A virus is capable of rapid genetic changes in mammals. In a pandemic flu one or both of the virus's surface proteins are replaced with proteins to which the human population has no preexisting immunity. This is what the WHO is concerned with because the virus then explodes in the community producing symptomatic infection.
Nobody is saying deaths BUT...I do draw a correlation to the 1918 pandemic because this is what concerns the WHO and CDC. They aren't saying this is going to happen but it has potential and because the 1918 virus has been studied there are things they can glean from the past.

The 1918 virus also started in the spring, infected tons, no deaths and then in the fall killed over 50 million. It's something to definately pause over and make sure this doens't happen again.

Plus i want to make another point people seem to forget.

Spanish flu came during ww1, which meant our minds must of been so tired of death etc.. and our global mind must of been not that strong, if you know what i mean. So do not try to say its anything like that.

There are too many unknown variables to these things that man cannot understand.

So do not not try to say swine flu is anything like spanish flu of 1918, because our minds and globallly today we are going through nothing compared to that, if you know what i mean.

The spanish flu just came in a very bad time for the human race, and it was when we must of been very weak collectively.

Please everyone.......The government thinks we are just this stupid......ask any biologist in this field that is willing to speak out. If this strain of H1N1 has mutated to contain (2) human strains, swine strain and avian strain carring the properties that CAUSE DEATH, then people would have been dying as these strains mutated together over several months. We would of know that there is a major outbreak of the (2) human strains..........it would of been tracked by the WHO around the wourld before it mutated with the swine and avian.

Did you catch what I just said? "before it mutated with the swine and avian"

This could not of happened....period....without being tracked and noticed!!

This flu cannot start from day one with the make up of all four strains.......

The government'(s) are throwing out banning pork and imports..........Its a slide of hand trick..........It did not originate form pigs.

This strain was engineered to bridge the gap between the Avian Flu strain, or I should say the weaponized version HN51.............HN51 can not spread from human to human. It needs a bridge. This H1N1 is the bridge!! It is going to mutate over the next few months on its own unless the government helps it along. It will mutate with HN51 making a supper strain that is airborne creating great death.

People who know biologist and physicians in this field ask them! Post your replys here on ATS..........Time is very short.........and it may already be to late.......

Well informed and accurate point there my man and the point i'm trying to make is that the human immune system is not static...regardless of what mutant version of influenza gets thrown at us at whatever time and in whatever state; the average fit and healthy person will deal with it because our immune system "recognises" influenza.

I'll take a massively mutated recognised disease any day over one the immune system has never encountered....Andromeda Strain anyone???
