I'd bet my house that the figure is much higher, if not, triple.

Highly likely.. I mean, they (the MSM) are telling people to "stay home" if they are experiencing symptoms...

Not only is this bad advice (IMO - just more likely to kill someone who may be sick) but it also screws up the statistics and tracking of this ...

Yeah, but its only a cold or regular flu.

Btw, I would not trust the Mexican government figures. UK opposition parties have pointed out their lacking of willingness to present clear figures and nobody knows if the figures are backdated by three weeks.

New Zealand, Spain, Canada and possibly the UK have cases of the virus spreading from human-to-human - some of which never visited Mexico.

Where did they report 149 dead so far? I just caught the tail end of the Mexican news conference on CNN and they did say they were closing schools, nurseries, etc until May 6...but is this for the ENTIRE country or just Mexico city?

Also heard that there is supposed to be some news conference around 1 or 2 eastern time where they are going to raise the level from 3 to something else. Anyone know for sure on this? Will this cause people to panic do you think?

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

They are playing their wild card.

We are so predictable and so easily manipulated and controlled.

Our memories are too short so like the good masters that they are they will remind you of who is in control.

I wonder if they did a DNA check of that "human" part of the virus if it would show up as the donation of a true royal blood-blue.

Makes one think a bit doesn't it.

The RSOE EDIS Pandemic monitoring site, in their bottom screen news ticker, are claiming 27 infected in the UK. That is not true as none have been confirmed and some have actually tested negative...this is crazy, and for a reason we dont yet know

Okay everyone....looks like a news conference is scheduled for sure about 1 eastern time. Fox news is waiting on the conference. I wonder if they really will raise the the level, but for some reason based on Obama's comments that we shouldn't be worried, I doubt they will say much about it. I am waiting to see what they are going to say.

But they are saying It's all over Europe man....

This new quote from Wikipedia leads me to believe that the new Swine Flu outbreak is some sort of bio-terrorism. I am not accusing anyone, but the wording in regards to the recombination of the flu strain's dna makes it sound as if the two pieces did not previously exist in nature. Maybe I am unaware of viruses 'mating' in the manner that would require the sharing of genetic information.

en.wikipedia.org...

The new strain appears to be a recombinant between two older strains. Preliminary genetic characterization found that the hemagglutinin (HA) gene was similar to that of swine flu viruses present in U.S. pigs since 1999, but the neuraminidase (NA) and matrix protein (M) genes resembled versions present in European swine flu isolates. Viruses with this genetic makeup had not previously been found to be circulating in humans or pigs, but there is no formal national surveillance system to determine what viruses are circulating in pigs in the U.S.[29]


The '29' in the wikipedia page links to this article from the CDC:
www.cdc.gov...


On April 17, 2009, CDC determined that two cases of febrile respiratory illness occurring in children who resided in adjacent counties in southern California were caused by infection with a swine influenza A (H1N1) virus. The viruses from the two cases are closely related genetically, resistant to amantadine and rimantadine, and contain a unique combination of gene segments that previously has not been reported among swine or human influenza viruses in the United States or elsewhere. Neither child had contact with pigs; the source of the infection is unknown.


I am feeling a bit perturbed that this looks like some sort of bio-terrorism....
DocMoreau

Edit to Add: I reread my post, and I don't make it clear that I am in support of the OP. I didn't mean to make it seem like I was the only one. I guess what I should say is 'I Agree, and this is why'

Also, I think looking at how Tamiflu resistant strains are running rampant:
www.cdc.gov...

On December 19, 2008, CDC issued interim guidance for health care professionals on the use of influenza antiviral medications this flu season. The guidance was issued in response to early data from a limited number of states indicating that a high proportion of influenza A (H1N1) viruses are resistant to the influenza antiviral medication oseltamivir (Tamiflu®). Worldwide, the proportion of H1N1 viruses that are resistant to oseltamivir has been increasing so this development is not surprising.

Rest assured some terrorist group would def. be taking credit for this. It is not out of reason, yet I would not call it bioterror, perhaps a bioattack. Yet I think it failed if it was to be a Nuclear biological attack on the people. I still would like to see some media coverage within this hospital I see and keep seeing on CNN..

The situation in the UK is changing rapidly. Here is the latest:

UK Swine Flu Info & Advice

Key facts from the above:


Health Secretary Alan Johnson has said 25 cases of possible swine flu have been reported in the UK.

Mr Johnson told the Commons that eight cases had proved negative, and three await specialist test results.

The other 14 were undergoing initial investigation but well enough to be managed in the community, he said.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Sky news reporting powerful Earthquake hits Mexico City.

Bless them, they're not having a good time there are they?

We are indeed experiencing a "ripple in still waters" event.

The broadcast approaching should let us know exactly what not to believe.
I feel that this is a global diversion.....flus are truly a common occurrence. Wondering what the real big bang is actually.

Sepa la bola....

Peace...

Yeah we know....

Still no confirmed cases though.

And that conference with Alan Johnson is not the latest.
It was over an hour ago..

That is all we need. Hopefully it is nothing major.

The virus will spread much worse if the Earthquake creates significant damage.

Not good.
