Alberta swine flu cases surpass 100

Cases of swine flu in Alberta have exceeded 100 almost a month after testing began.

Alberta Health reported 11 new confirmed cases in the province on Tuesday, the largest one-day total so far.

An official with Alberta Health said there is nothing significant in the jump in reported cases.

That brings the total number of swine flu cases to 107 since testing started in late April. All but four cases have been described as mild.

All of the new cases are also reported to be mild. Seven are children and four are adults. They live in southern Alberta, Calgary, central Alberta and the Edmonton region.

Well this thread for info and news is done by the looks of it. Way to go guys, you two really did a great service to all of us by chasing away the information providers. Thanks a bunch.

When I've had the flu, usually the coughing has been horrible. The damage to my throat was really nasty. And the cough lasted for weeks and weeks.

In the interviews I've been listening too, the victims don't seem to have this problem. When I've had the flu, I sure couldn't have given an interview that long without coughing.

Anyone seen anything that indicates how bad the cough component of this flu is?

Two more New Yorkers with swine flu die; underlying conditions may have been a factor

Two more New Yorkers infected with swine flu have died, health officials announced Tuesday.
It is not known if the H1N1 virus caused the latest two fatalities - a 41-year-old woman from Queens and a 34-year-old man from Brooklyn.
The new cases bring to four the number of New Yorkers who have died after catching swine flu, said city health commissioner Thomas Frieden said.

As with this thread, I found an article that reports the slowing of the flu. It has come to a climax for the US for now, maybe?

Okay .. this looks very interesting but I'm not a virologist. Someone please explain it to me. Are there now multiple strains of this thing out there?

I guess that would explain that we've heard everything from 'I've had worse papercuts' to 'it was so bad that I just wanted to die'.

More on the "vaccine."

Continued Steps toward H1N1 Vaccine

Published by Maribel Rios on May 26, 2009 11:17 am under Biotech, Manufacturing, R&D

The United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is trying to cover all of its bases as it seeks to stockpile a vaccine to fight influenza A (H1N1). GSK and Sanofi are first on the list of drugmakers that will work with HHS to meet its objectives. Research scientists are also preparing for possible drug-resistant strains by making progress toward a new type of drug that will be able to stop the spread of infection and possibly prevent initial infection.

In accordance to an existing contract, HHS has placed an initial order, valued at $190 million, with Sanofi Pasteur for a vaccine. The order provides for the production of the bulk vaccine. However, the company is still awaiting the seed virus from the US Centers for Disease Control. Once the seed virus is obtained, the company says it will have a better timeline of when the vaccine might be available. Moreover, dosage requirements have not yet been determined and the final formulation, filling, and distribution of the vaccine have not yet been established. Sanofi Pasteur also says it “is prepared to commence commercial scale production in June following certification of the working seed by the US Food and Drug Administration.”

I will continue to post what I find here but am now seeking out the other places where this information is being posted. This was the first thread on ats that I ever stayed this involved with.

Well summer is setting in and everything, but I think you said it right when you said "For now". I'd say we're going to see a decline in this for the summer. It will probably start to go behind the scenes without the infections being reported, until about September. Cooler temperatures, school back in session (kids at play), etc. Then it will probably make a comeback.

FOLKS, NO ONE had permission from Hx3 to post the link to his forum - which HE PAYS FOR.

So be polite (at least more polite than the poster who shared it) and U2U Hx3 first, don't kill his bandwidth

That was incredibly rude

Thanks for letting us know. It sounds like now you need to get some rest. Keep hydrated with clear liquids and all that.

We might have missed this from the weekend.

VIDEO: WHO predicts 'swine flu' will worsen

May 22 - The World Health Organisation says the H1N1 flu virus could mutate in 'unpredictable' ways.

Note Africa cases added to end of video as an after thought. That is going to be a nightmare.

I will continue to search and share information on the thread.

I'm not the least bit surprised that a few felt the need to show how smart they are by attempting to derail this thread. We get it guys; you think the virus is nothing and is being overblown by some here.

Message received. You made your point. Now I would suggest you go start your own , 'This VIRUS IN NUTHIN!!!111!!" thread and stop trolling this one.

What I am surprised at, and confused by, is the way the "insiders," here have let a clearly very small minority of posters to drive them away. I find that exceedingly odd. If the information was as accurate as you claimed (and I believe it was) and you felt it was important enough to share with us (despite expressed concern about doing so), why on Earth would the actions of a couple of insignificant individuals cause you to throw up your hands and surrender?

Very strange indeed.

Caught them again! Ok here in their own words we are not in phase 5 and they know it. Read their own words;

"We don't want to make recommendations too early because we are on a daily basis monitoring how the situation is evolving," he said, later adding: "We are still at the early stage of this pandemic and we have to see where it goes."

Phase 5 is pre-pandemic and phase 6 is pandemic.

Same story 2 paragraphs later;

For now, he said the WHO was keeping its alert at Phase 5 which means a pandemic is "imminent."[i/]

To recap; It is "imminent", and "we are at the early stages of it."

The trains arrival is imminent, and we are at it now.

Double speak IMHO. Not that it should matter what phase we are in, but to mask the true nature from the masses is wrong. If you remember from my post a few pages back about the financial impact the Spanish flu had being minor it was, "because the government and media down played the risks."
