KOBE (Kyodo)--Schools in Osaka and Hyogo prefectures resumed classes Monday after closing for about a week, in line with Japan's new policy of relaxing restrictions in areas hit hard by a new strain of influenza.
Students were back at kindergartens, elementary, junior high and high schools as well as special education schools, with the exception of certain schools in areas where the epidemic has not subsided yet.
The exceptions include Kobe High School and Hyogo High School, both in Kobe, in which the first cases of infections in the country were discovered, as well as Osaka's Kansai Okura Senior High School where many students were infected.

Don't feel alone ~ I, too, have a spouse who is ... um, let's say 'less than supportive. Matter of fact, they have told me to never utter the words 'swine flu' in their presence ever again, because "There's nothing I can do about it, is there??!??". *sigh*
Of course, I am lucky in regard to the whole issue of being prepared ~ that's always been a given in our household, to be ready for flood/fire/storm/snow/what-have-you. You just hang in there, Asherah ~ live your life fully without panic, but there's no harm with having a quiet eye to the future and taking precautions.
I am in the exact same situation and can not even bring it up to my wife anymore without her getting angry at me. So I dont bring it up I just keep silently preparing.
I too really wish people would stop bickering on here as this is my only main source of info on all of this. All I want is the info and to maybe make some friends that are in the same mindset as me.

Forgive me fellow ATS's, but I feel I must repeat a quote from an earlier post I made:
Public health employee in my state, "36,000 deaths of young, healthy people is NOT THE SAME THING as 36,000 deaths of the elderly!"
Clearly, this is so simple to understand:
LOSING A CHILD IS SO VERY DIFFERENT THAT LOSING AN ELDERLY PARENT.

I would again, strongly suggest, that one should avoid echinicea and any other immune enhancer that is effective because it triggers your immune system. Making your immune system over-react, which is essentially what herbs like that do, is a very bad idea with this type of flu.
Hmmm, I think someone else (possibly from here, and very early in the thread) said something like this.
I think they said to take it as a flu/cold preventative, but to avoid it if you do get sick???
Anyone else recall this advice?

This thread is the best example of fear mongering and ignorance I've seen on ATS since I've been a member.

Why would there be an intentional release of H1N1 that might concentrate in North America?
How about, viral infective innoculation of the population to H5N1?
Infection with this virus can lead to cross reactive antibodies to H5N1.
