why on earth have travel restrictions been lifted to mexico?!
I cant believe how stupid some people are. The woman on sky reading the report was smiling and grinning saying "now that the swine flu threat has diminished, with hardly any new cases in mexico, travel restrictions have been lifted to Mexico.

if this turns deadly these people will be held accountable, its like they want it to spread.

The estimation of 100,000 cases is 2 orders of magnitude lower than the confirmed cases and may be two more orders of magnitude below the real number, The latest CDC numbers show 2X the number of swine H1N1 over seasonal H1N1 and H3N2 combined. Swine H1N1 is easily outpacing seasonal flu and the only slowdown is in the actual testing, not the spread.

Further information on the situation will be available on the WHO web site on a regular basis.

Swine flu epidemic fear grows, world on alert
Sun Apr 26, 2009 7:05pm EDT
www.reuters.com...

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Governments around the world rushed on Sunday to check the spread of a new type of swine flu that has killed up to 81 people in Mexico and infected around a dozen in the United States.

Mexicans huddled in their homes while U.S. hospitals tracked patients with flu symptoms and other countries imposed health checks at airports as the World Health Organization warned the virus had the potential to become a pandemic.

The epidemic has snowballed into a monster headache for Mexico, already grappling with a violent drug war and economic slowdown, and has quickly become one of the biggest global health scares in years.

They'll get the Darwin Award. Unfortunately, while they are getting their Darwin Award, they'll come back and infect all of us who know better then to go there.

Okay, when I highlighted and copied this article, it had a different last sentence. The last sentence said something like, "In a matter of a couple of days, 1000 students, staff, and family members had became ill" weird---I know I read it!


Interesting. I linked to this story earlier in the thread as well, and copy/pasted some quotes from it, including this one:

An estimated 1,000 students, their relatives and staff at the St. Francis Preparatory School fell ill in a matter of days.


Now, if I go to the link I previously posted, I get this article instead:

City defends wait to close schools amid swine flu fears

The wife's criticisms went from this in the original article:


The wife of a Queens assistant principal in critical condition with swine flu said Friday city health officials told him he was "setting off a panic" last week when he expressed concern that the illness had sickened students at his school.

Bonnie Wiener, whose husband, Mitchell, is assistant principal of Susan B. Anthony Intermediate School in Hollis, one of three schools closed by the latest swine flu outbreak, said the city health department denied the principal's request to close the school because of suspected swine flu cases there.

"If he [the principal] was allowed to shut the school down, my husband would not be in this condition," she said.

...

"He was chastised by the [department] of health or someone higher that he was setting off a panic," Bonnie Wiener said. "The man said there is nothing to worry about."

She said the health department official told her husband, "Even if it is swine flu, it is still diluted."


TO this from the current article:


"I am outraged," she said. "What does it take to close the schools? We can close because of snow but not a disease, which can kill you."


And it completely skipped the son's criticism about the pre-existing conditions being bull#:


Wiener's wife and son disputed Bloomberg's contention Thursday that Mitch Wiener may have had pre-existing health conditions.

"I don't know where people got that," Adam Wiener said Friday morning as he prepared to return to the hospital where the family was keeping vigil.

"The only pre-existing condition he has is gout, which is unrelated to complications he's experienced now."


If you google the original article title at newsday.com, you can see the cached search result, but not the original article - the cached search result just points to the new article. Google didn't have the chance to cache the contents of the article, apparently.

Searching for the original article elsewhere seems futile. It is linked, but the content is not out there.



You are correct! This literally happened in seconds. I did copy the article and email it out to a few. I wish the general public knew of this censorship. I will email again the original and the revised and hope people forward it. Censorship is one of my biggest pet peeves.

Epidemic Influenza And Vitamin D




However, as the epidemic progressed, I noticed something unusual. First, the ward below mine was infected, and then the ward on my right, left, and across the hall - but no patients on my ward became ill. My patients had intermingled with patients from infected wards before the quarantines. The nurses on my unit cross-covered on infected wards. Surely, my patients were exposed to the influenza A virus. How did my patients escape infection from what some think is the most infectious of all the respiratory viruses?





All of the patients on my ward had been taking 2,000 units of vitamin D every day for several months or longer. Could that be the reason none of my patients caught the flu?

WHO Director General Margaret Chan noted the virus had "quickly demonstrated its capacity to spread easily from one person to another, to spread widely within an affected country and to spread rapidly to additional countries."

"We expect this pattern of international spread to continue," she said.

"This is a time of great uncertainty, and great pressure on governments, ministries of health and WHO," she added. 5/16/09

level 6 was... the sh*t is about to hit the fan

we're already at .... the sh*t hit the fan, went through the blades and covered everyone in the office...

The 'real' people in charge of the world are stalling.... waiting for....... ?

And WHO are the good little b*tches sitting and waiting for the masters to give the nod.... or not.

Phase 6, the pandemic phase, is characterized by community level outbreaks in at least one other country in a different WHO region in addition to the criteria defined in Phase 5.


This happened weeks ago.....

makes no difference really apart from financially..... this thing is/has/will spread regradless of them bumping it up to level 6.

It's people 'like us' that are prepared and ready .... TPTB dont want people at home causing finacial chaos...

If schools shut who will look after the chillens? The parents.... so who will work? childless people..... discrimination = uprising = questions = eventual truth = collapse of businesses and mistrust in governments and..... well... the sh*t just boomeranged back through the fan and is now on the faces of TPTB along with the egg!!
