Two more cases of swine flu confirmed in Victoria

Growth of cases in US and Mexico continues, Canada too, although their reporting is not regular so trends are hard to see #swineflu #h1n14 minutes ago from web

Well for one them in Power do not want widespread panic across the country. Just act like everything is normal. Off course most of thepublic are not that stupid to realise that there is something wrong.

2nd of all they also do not want to disrupt exams, after all what would the Government look like, if the exams were scrapped and their targets were not met.

Just shows the Gov puts thier own selves before the pubic as a whole once again.

A lot of people here in Mexico believe now that there is no such thing as swine flu. I'm still not sure what to believe.. but I know I have never trusted the government, here or in the US.

I am happy with the Mexican government's decision to close schools and non-essential business as quickly as they did, but I was disheartened by the fact that they put the economy first over public health and began making it all seem as though we were over reacting when they started losing money.

I currently have about 17 students that are not showing up to class due to illness.

Remember Adrian Gibbs, virologist who suggested that H1N1 could have been released from a lab, whose theory has since been rejected by WHO?

When that story broke, I sent an email to one of the reporters who posted the story asking when and where Gibbs' report would be published. I just got back a response:

"No, it hasn't been published yet, and I don't know where it will be published. I was in contact with him yesterday and he said he's still working it through with the journal's editors. Shouldn't be too far off."

Not huge news, but I thought it was worth sharing, as it may be coming back up in the MSM soon.

History tells us swine flu will be back in the fall

Columbia Health Department urges residents to help in response to swine flu

HUDSON - Columbia County Health Department is urging people worried about the new flu virus H1N1 to avoid calling 9-1-1 unless they have a true emergency, or going to hospitals and doctors’ offices unless they really need treatment.

Do not rush to your doctor or hospital emergency room to get flu vaccine. Because this is a new virus, there is no effective vaccine at the present time. It will take at least six months to produce a vaccine that could protect you against the new virus. Last season’s flu vaccine will not help against this flu strain. Also, if this virus turns out to spread person-to-person, and you go to a health care facility, you will be at increased risk of exposure to people who are already ill.

The New York State Health Department and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are investigating to determine how people who are infected with the new strain of flu contracted the illness, and whether any had a travel history. However, confirmation of the new flu strain coincides with an unusual occurrence of influenza-like illness in the region so it is prudent to reduce the amount of time you spend in public places.

Most flu patients can be cared for at home with supportive treatment to reduce their temperature and maintain an adequate fluid intake. However, children should not be given aspirin to reduce pain or fever because it could cause a rare but potentially serious condition called Reye’s syndrome.

I hope you have woken up feeling much better this morning?

For what it's worth, mine started about 3 weeks ago and felt like it would never end. I am a hyperactive person, and it didn't completely wipe me out of energy, so I was still getting things done. It wasn't until I forced myself to stop, renting 6 videos and tucked into bed for 2 straight days that I started to recover. And even when I thought I was recovered, I found if I over did it for a day or 2 I went backwards again.

I hope you recover very soon!

Thank you soooo much for sharing the CDC briefing document with us!

I'm going through it now, but find it interesting that only 6% of the hospitalised cases involved "obesity". I'd guess that at least 6% of the population suffers from obesity, so don't see/believe there is a genuine connection between being obese and being hospitalised.

The asthma numbers are very scary. I live in Australia where we have very high asthma rates amongst our young people.

I also have asthma (only when I'm allergic to something in the air etc) and did notice, that though my congestion seemed to be the equivalent of a mild cold when I was sick, I did get wheezy, which had me quite scared (that has never happened to me before as I've only ever gotten wheezy with allergic reactions, but never with the flu etc). I now seem to have fully recovered and wish I knew for sure it was H1N1 so I wouldn't have to be so concerned about catching it in the future. From what I'm reading, it seems they can only test you while you are still sick with it???
