It is a pitty that the UK Gov will not implement the exact same policy as the french are doing. Do the french have enough vaccines to vacinate the whole french population?

Vaccine? No thanks, even my mom says they're bad news, and she's from the old generation.

Australia-Can you imagine all states having cases with the population so sparse in some of them? I hope the aborigines have some kind of system in place.

Baby’s death is 5th linked to flu in NY city.


A Bronx infant has become the fifth New Yorker suffering from swine flu to die, the boy’s family and an official close to his case told the Daily News yesterday. “I went in to check up on him, I turned him around and he was purple,” said his aunt, Jennifer Castellanos, 18. “He was a completely healthy baby.”

I don't know if West Virginia has made any official state lists yet, but I just came across this.

health.wvu.edu...

Four probable cases of H1N1 (swine) flu have been identified in four separate areas of West Virginia as of Thursday, May 28. For infomation from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources, please click here.

The discovery of probably flu cases has been expected by state and local health officials for several weeks. Nearly 8,000 confirmed or probable cases have been identified nationwide. This development has not changed the advice that health officials have issued to the public and health professionals.

All 50 US states too
www.kyivpost.com...
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said the confirmed tests represent about one in 20 of the actual number of infections, which would bring the total number of U.S. cases to around 200,000.

OK a change in reporting again - are they going to ramp it up again?

It seems like they grudgingly release info on mortality, with the disclaimer that there were underlying conditions-


Two more deaths in US

The state of California reported its first fatalities today. A man from San Bernardino County and a woman from Los Angeles County died, bringing the total death count for the United States up to 19. Both patients who died in California were middle aged and had underlying health conditions.

This info was from international sos website. CDC is posting 17 deaths.

I'd like to know what normal flu death stats are and compare them. Yes its a new mutation but I'm not sure the scare mongering in the press is justified.

Swine flu at Vogue magazine offices...

A memo just went out to Condé Nast employees informing them that an "employee working on the 12th floor at 4 Times Square" has tested positive for Influenza A. "According to CDC," the memo notes, "the H1N1 virus is a sub-type of Influenza A." As you may or may not know, the twelfth floor of the Condé Nast building is the home of Vogue. Time for rich people to start worrying about swine flu!

nymag.com...

From: [Redacted]
Date: Mon, 1 Jun 2009 11:56:41 -0400
To: Conde Nast NY - All
Conversation: Flu Advisory
Subject: Flu Advisory

We were recently notified by an employee working on the 12th floor at 4 Times Square that a doctor confirmed a positive test outcome for Influenza A (according to CDC, the H1N1 virus is a sub-type of Influenza A). This employee also confirms being under a doctor¹s care and currently recovering at home.

In line with CDC recommendations, please monitor any flu-like symptoms should they arise and check with your healthcare provider about any special care that may be required should you be pregnant or have a chronic health condition such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma, or emphysema.

Interview with man with swine flu:

"Field says a few days later he couldn't get out of bed.

A trip to his doctor and a test run by the state lab confirmed field's diagnosis.

"It was pounding headache. Congestion, cough, aches. The thing that was different though, was that there wasn't much fever."

In fact, Field isn't the only patient, doctor's say who hasn't had a high fever which is something that could throw patients off.

Field says the serious symptoms went away after a few days but a cough and minor symptoms stuck around for some time."

Sounds familiar. On another note-had son in ER for a hand injury last night and ER nurse told me that ER visits are up almost 30% this month as compared to last year at this time. Mostly due to the flu.

In my country (Uruguay) there are supposedly 15 cases now.


It started with 2 people that came with it from Argentina and now (a week after or so) there are 15 people infected.

I've already stated I don't believe in any of this madness.
The national media is constantly updating about it, and while time is being spent with this ridiculous illness, important news are being dismissed.


But, well, after all that's what the TV is all about. LOL. Distracting people from the important issues and spreading fear.
So, it makes sense they are dedicating 90% of the news to this thing.

This thread went through that, "No Fever/Lower than normal" thingy almost 2 weeks ago...

Is this the "Best of the Best"?

I thought "Y'all" would move on to more "sublime" "under-currents" and "investigate"...

Not "repeat"...

Sad state of "Affairs" this has become...


"Disappointed"

Is there no more?

MSM is it?

No one has "local" sources?

No one "wonders"?

The reason for my posting from this article is that if officials/doctors believe the lack of fever is throwing people off and they are not seeking medical help. Imagine the amount of visits one would have to the ER if it did not throw people off. In my city, ER visits are up 30% mostly due to flu. Hospital staff related they are having a VERY difficult time handling all of the cases. Imagine if that were increased to those who do not have a fever? Imagine what will happen in the fall...

There are six new mutations identified/added in less than a week.

Still two main strains, with wide spread infections.

Notice that if you click into the (stats) link in the Frequency column, that the two main strains do not have much identification in Mexico. Mexico is where the majority of deaths seem to have been identified.

This virus is mutating quite a bit.

It seems to me that two most common identified strains seem to be less killer. Two of these with frequecies above 1 (more than one person tested and the mutation then identified) seem to have a large territory.

So either these mutations are around and moving, or this is a common "mistake" that the more common strains are making when replicating themselves.

WHO says world moving closer to Phase 6 flu..

Utter BS. 17.000 cases IN THE WORLD and about 115 deaths... Not even ONE PERCENT death rate. RIDICULOUS.

Bilderberg said they would hyped it up to create a world health department...

So its in Africa now too.

“Beth Israel is working with the CDC right now and it is anticipated that the flu will be back in the fall with a vengeance.
Some interesting stats at the bottom - below article - 8% of cases are pregnant - surely this is a high proportion of pregnant sufferers - There is no way 1 in 12 of the population is pregnant at one time - I know this was discussed and i think dismissed already in thread but if these stats are right it seems to be a factor.

This is so BS. If it would come back, it would have done so already since it's winter in South America, but let's forget that and hype the fear...
