Flu Fears Remain High But Confirmed H1N1 Cases Stay Low (NY1 News)
This is critical thinking. Every person who went to school in the First World at least has received tax payer funded traning on how to use critical thinking. On how to see the news. Most of us just didn't care, understand or choose to remember it.
So this implys that these new numbers we are seeing in fact are current hospitalized cases and not "left-over" lab testing...scary...if these numbers are still increasing by hundreds a day it will generate a tipping point in the near future...
1. The CDC and WHO instructed Doctors to stop testing new cases weeks ago. In ER's only the people being put into a room to stay are being tested.

Yep...on the soles of the feet and then put of socks.Really seems to help,not sure why.
I'm the oldest of 8 kids and my Mom is a genius for her "at home" remedys mostly due to necessity but damn if they don't work!
You peel either the giner or garlic if using freah and sorta' mash it up a bit with a spoon...steep in boiling water and sweeten if need be.
The garlic isn't really as bad as it sounds and honestly,the healing-properties are worth a bit of nasty to me.
Please feel better soon!!!

I do agree with you that there are facts, stories, and messages available to the educated...but average Joe doesn't necessarily have the capability to know how to gain resources, think critically,etc.
Swine flu hit the most populous urban area on earth Wednesday when two schoolgirls in Tokyo tested positive for the disease as Japan's national total reached 267, reports and officials said.
16-year-old girl became the first confirmed case of A(H1N1) in the Japanese capital and its surrounding districts, home to around 36 million people, more than any other population centre in the world.

Of course they don't. But then, they TOLD YOU that they aren't testing everyone. They told you who they will be testing. It is freely available information, right from the horse's mouth.
People don't understand what that means. Which is way different than the data being hidden.
Number of countries with confirmed or suspected cases: 52.
# Some authorities have stopped testing all but seriously ill patients. Infectious diseases specialist Gordon Dickinson said that for every confirmed case, there are probably hundreds of unconfirmed cases.
§ The governments of Mexico and Canada have stopped reporting suspected cases.
‡ Suspected and probable cases have not been confirmed as being due to this strain of influenza by laboratory tests, although some other strains may have been ruled out.
¤ The "confirmed cases" figure for the United States includes probable cases.
(y) The virus is known to have been transmitted in-country, but no specific numbers are available.

Once again, I think you would be better suited starting your own thread to debate this.
Government officials have mobilized all public agencies and resources to stem the possible spread of the swine flu virus after increasing the epidemic alert to Level 2, or yellow, following the confirmation of the first case here yesterday.
He also called for full cooperation from the public to jointly prevent the spread of the virus.
Can the new H1N1 flu virus be spread through water in swimming pools, spas, water parks, interactive fountains, and other treated recreational water venues?
Influenza viruses infect the human upper respiratory tract. There has never been a documented case of influenza virus infection associated with water exposure. Recreational water that has been treated at CDC recommended disinfectant levels does not likely pose a risk for transmission of influenza viruses. No research has been completed on the susceptibility of the H1N1 influenza virus to chlorine and other disinfectants used in swimming pools, spas, water parks, interactive fountains, and other treated recreational venues. However, recent studies have demonstrated that free chlorine levels recommended by CDC (1–3 parts per million [ppm or mg/L] for pools and 2–5 ppm for spas) are adequate to disinfect avian influenza A (H5N1) virus. It is likely that other influenza viruses such as novel H1N1 virus would also be similarly disinfected by chlorine.
