2008-2009 Influenza Season Week 18 ending May 9, 2009



Synopsis: During week 18 (May 3 - 9, 2009), influenza activity remained at approximately the
same level as last week in the United States, indicating that there are higher levels of influenza-like
illness than is normal for this time of year.
o One thousand four hundred fifty-four (11.9%) specimens tested by U.S. World Health
Organization (WHO) and National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System
(NREVSS) collaborating laboratories and reported to CDC/Influenza Division were positive
for influenza.
o The proportion of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza (P&I) was below the
epidemic threshold.
o Three influenza-associated pediatric deaths were reported.
o The proportion of outpatient visits for influenza-like illness (ILI) was above the national
baseline. Three of the ten surveillance regions reported ILI above their region-specific
baselines.
o Eight states reported geographically widespread influenza activity, 14 states reported
regional activity, the District of Columbia and 15 states reported local influenza activity; and
13 states reported sporadic influenza activity.

o Three influenza-associated pediatric deaths were reported. I only remeber the one child who came from Mexico dieing befor May 9 when the data for this report was gathered.

Update: Health officials: Man with swine flu dies at local hospital

11:50 AM CDT on Tuesday, May 19, 2009


(KMOV) -- News 4 has learned that a man who had swine flu has died in the St. Louis area.


According to CNN, St. Louis County health officials confirm that a 42-year-old man died Tuesday morning at a local hospital.


Health officials say that the man had been in the hospital for a few weeks and that he had recently visited Mexico.


While the man did have swine flu, the official cause of death from the St. Louis County medical examiner has not yet been determined.


No other details about this case are being released at this time.


Unfortunately, another death in Missouri--a 42 yr.old man--


edit:He's been in the hospital for a few weeks, but they can't yet determine cause of death? Guess they need time to make up "underlying cause"??

Same here, I had been keeping track of serious cases on another thread. Unless they were different flus than h1n1? Very strange that all the numbers seem to be *lower* with h1n1. If it's a crazy shooter on a rampage, the authorities/MSM always seem to make the numbers higher to sensationalize

So we now have 3 deaths in texas, 2 (1confirmed) in AZ, 1 in WA, 1 in NYC and 1 in MO?

That would make 8 deaths and another possible if the child in NYC is confirmed.

edit - meant MO

H1N1 lawsuit takes on pig farm
By Randy Wilson

“In an initial step toward what could be the first wrongful-death suit of its kind, Texas resident Steven Trunnell has filed a petition against Smithfield Foods, the world’s largest pork producer, based in Virginia, and the owner of a massive pig farm in Perote, Mexico, near the village of La Gloria, where the earliest cases of the new H1N1 flu were detected. Trunnell filed the petition in his home state on behalf of his late wife, Judy Dominguez Trunnell, the 33-year-old special-education teacher who on May 4 became the first U.S. resident to die of H1N1 flu.”

Seems to be picking up steam.

We're at the 20 day mark and the deaths are starting to filter through.

*Hears Ecoparity shout* Told you so!

Suspect Swine H1N1 Toddler Death in NY: Recombinomics


Family members say the boy was turning blue as they rushed him to the hospital.


The evolution of the H1N1 is being closely monitored by sequencing labs across the world, and most isolates to date are closely related. However, the presence of avian PB2 raises concerns that the frequency of cases will not decline in the summer in the northern hemisphere, because the avian PB2 is optimal at 41 C, which would lead to efficient transmission in the summer. Moreover, the seasonal flu has the mammalian version of PB2, which has optimal activity at 34 C. However, the swine H1N1 transmitting in the summer hemisphere may acquire E627K, leading to a virus efficiently transmitting in the winter aso.


Similarly, swine H1N1 in the southern hemisphere may acquire H274Y, leading to Tamflu resistance, which could complicate treatment of the more severe cases, which may involve previously healthy young adults. Another H1N1 death (44M) was just reported in St. Louis, MO.
The strong parallels between 1918 and 2009 continue to cause concern

Okay back from the doctor....very enlightening and scary!!!

I asked her if she thought testing me for swine flu was a good idea considering how long I have been sick and that this round of meds has done little. She looked right at me and said they get daily briefings that are INSTRUCTING THEM NOT TO TEST anyone that has not been to Mexico???? Are they kidding me, I know better than that.

I told her that I am very aware of the transmission of this thing and that the Mexico connection is moot at this point. Then she backpedals and says they don't want new tests to further overwhelm the system. ?????? Then she says, well I probably should have tested you since you do have lung issues but at this point why bother since it is obvious to me you don't have swine flu!

This is not my regular doctor and I am seeing her in a couple of weeks on another matter so I will get more honest info from her. I just find it very strange that for someone with RAD, not regular asthma to be this sick for this long with very little improvement after the zythromicin and predinsone treatments. I have NEVER been this sick for this long with anything lung related before, but I haven't been to Mexico so I am good. LOLOL

If a mutation occurs, what is very likely, vaccines will be totally useless because they only target whatever H1N1 strain was circulating months ago.
That doesn't mean that BIG Pharma isn't going to cash on the vaccines money machines, of course!

I looked at the CNN link Hx3 posted which was a CNN poll saying that only 17% polled were concerned about the swine flu.........

All of us here are aware just how serious this virus is..........

But what about your family members and friends, co-workers, employers....? Are they concerned?

Our gov/media is controlling the masses..........

So how do we get control of this freight train coming? Or do we just keep monitoring the engineers of this train and try to duck when it rolls by our house?

I know how difficult it is to pull someones opinion away from main stream media..........I know nurses that monitor and adhere to the CDC website

I guess I am just really getting pissed off since I am sick.......


I think these actions by the gov/cdc/who are criminal when people lives are at stake....

**These people in the Gov/CDC work for you and I......Our taxes pay their salaries.........We don't pay them for false information and lies........We pay them to protect and serve the public interest........
