This is exactly what I mean about overkill.... The headline is " Swine flu: twenty-five possible cases reported in Britain"

The bullitin text is as follows.......... In a statement to the Commons, Alan Johnson said that three patients were undergoing specialist testing and another 14 were being monitored at home. None has yet been confirmed as suffering from the virus.

Eight people who came forward with swine flu-like symptoms have been shown not to have the condition, which has now killed more than 100 people in Mexico.

Question?...what are they playing at. This is scaremongering in the extreme !

Respects

I haven't read all the posts and threads....but just to throw it out there....

on the subject of why deaths are occurring within the Mexican population and no where else.....could this possibly be a targeted test of a virus that just kills a particular race or specific group of people?

Is this a first test in a virus that kills only the selected population?



Keep in mind, these are the early stages... Should there be no other deaths in the next 24-48 hours than you may very well have a good point here.

Also keep in mind out of the 1,600 or so people 103 have died... so about 1/16 confirmed have died so far. It's still under 100 confirmed throughout the rest of the world.

Time will tell...

I believe that there have only been deaths in Mexico because that was the area first affected and has had it spreading for the longest amount of time. Also, their health care and basic hygiene is lower than the other areas with confirmed cases.

I think we will see deaths in other countries. Mexico had a 3 week head start on everyone else.

I wasn't aware of that but I am talking about laboratory confirmed cases. I had heard of other suspicious cases in the US before but they were isolated.

I'm watching live snooker in UK and in the past 30minutes two people have passed out in the audience!!!! Lots of coughing and sniffling in the crowd, but that's normal.

I've been watching snooker on TV for 20years and have never seen people pass out in the crowd.

Maybe nothing, but thought it was worth mentioning.

Edit update: First person who passed out has been taken away in an ambulance.

Actually it is much less then 103 deaths. Only 26 have been confirmed as the swine virus.

Mexico has said it has so far suffered 103 deaths from influenza, but Hartl noted that only 26 of those have been confirmed as swine flu -- "far, far under the numbers that have been bandied about."
26 swine virus deaths in mexico

We also know how the media likes to blow thing out of proportion. They are probably getting as high tv ratings today as they did on 9/11.

Southern California report:


Swine Flu that Killed 20 in Mexico, Now in California

A flu virus that has killed at least 20 people in Mexico now has health workers on alert here in the Valley.

There are now eight confirmed cases of the swine flu in California and Texas. Five of them are from the San Diego area and health officials are now scrambling to determine if the cases in Mexico are linked in any way to the cases in the U.S.

Health officials in Mexico have confirmed 20 deaths but believe there may be as many as 60 and nearly 1,000 are sick. They believe it’s a new strain of the virus that may be passed from human to human.

It is doing exactly what they want it to do. They are taking advantage of a crisis. Great way to take everybody mind off the economic crisis.

US military called in to fight swine flu




The US military is ordered to place the contagion of swine flu under close observation with the disease having reportedly afflicted 40 people in the country.

"The US military is monitoring the situation closely," Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman was quoted by AFP as saying on Monday.

Earlier in the day, the World Health Organization confirmed 73 cases of the flu worldwide.

Spain reported the most recent case of affliction and three suspected sufferers were found in Germany alerting the European health authorities.
