One of my daughters friends mother was admitted to the hospital yesterday after she went to the doctor complaining with breathing problems. She said they sent her mom to the hospital with possible pneumonia and they have since quarantined her. They are telling that they are just checking for possible tb, but I for one am concerned!

Aussie update:

au.news.yahoo.com...
More than 1,000 Australians have tested positive for swine flu.

Eight people in Tasmania have now been confirmed as having the virus after two more positive results.

Public Health Physician Kelly Shaw said the new cases included a woman who had recently travelled to Victoria - the first confirmed case swine flu in the state's north.

An ambulance officer from Tasmania's northwest is the other new case, Dr Shaw said in a statement.

I just read a report from BNO News on Twitter (@mpoppel) that Mayor Ray Nagin of New Orleans has been quarantined in China after coming down with H1N1 Swine Flu.

This is not true, there is a major difference between coming down with n1h1 and being exposed to n1h1 via another passenger on a plane. He was on a plane on his way to China that happened to have an infected passenger, no one inside the city government has told me otherwise, and its not like people there keep a secret.

As far as I'm concerned, however, they can keep Mr. Nagin quarantined until 2010 (election year
).

VICTORIA now has the highest recorded per capita rate of swine flu in the world.
www.news.com.au...

Nearly 1000 people with this thing in my state alone


At least no one has died from it, and the authorities say its only a mild type flu.

Hi.

No I am from UK England but living in Thailand. Just went to China for a holiday. The whole experience on the plane was quite surreal.

Another thing about China. In every hotel room and even in shops they had Fire Escape Hoods to protect you from smoke inhalation. I have never seen that before anywhere in the world.

I feel for ya' nite ... that fella is awful.

Question ... he was traveling to China with his wife and a 'security guard'.
Why was he traveling with 'a security guard'????? that's odd.
He's not important or high visibility enough to warrant one just for his status.
Is something else going on .. or is it just for his ego?

I imagine the 'security guard' is guarantined as well???

They've been saying that all over the world ... every case is 'mild' unless you are on a breathing machine in the hospital. :shk: It's really propaganda.

First death in Quebec

www.radio-canada.ca...#

Google translation:

The Quebec government confirmed Monday afternoon the first death related to influenza virus A (H1N1).

The National Director of Public Health, Dr. Alain Poirier, and the Deputy Minister of Public Safety, Paul Girard, announced that a woman over 65 years in the Quebec City region died Friday after contracting virus.

Laboratories have confirmed that on Monday it had contracted influenza A (H1N1).

The lady, including Dr. Poirier did not indicate the exact age, was treated for bacterial pneumonia. Apart from this pneumonia, she had no particular health problems.

She died three days after the onset of first symptoms.

The old woman would not go to Mexico. Furthermore, it is unclear whether she was in contact with people who went to Mexico.

According to Dr. Poirier, the first death does not a finding of disease progression. Health authorities in the province argued that protective measures remain the same and take in a word: hygiene.

So far, 542 cases of influenza A (H1N1) viruses were identified in Quebec, including 64 that resulted in hospitalization. These data include patients healed.

In Canada, more than 2000 cases have been identified.


In press conf, they said for sure, it is not slowing down in the number of cases reported. But H1N1 is old news here... next winter will be hard, just a thought.

Canadian provinces cases from officials (gov):

www.phac-aspc.gc.ca...

But something very, very interesting:

Look what information they removed from now on, this is from the previous press release:


As of June 3rd 2009, the median age reported is 17 years (...). To date 96 hospitalizations and three deaths have been reported among laboratory-confirmed cases. The most recent date of symptom onset is May 31st, 2009. Please note that an incorrect number of hospitalizations were previously reported therefore the value today has decreased.


All press releases:
www.phac-aspc.gc.ca...

They do not mention the median age anymore, well for that last one, june 8th. why, because it is too low now? Interesting omission...

Ego, as far as I know, megalomaniac tendencies run deep within this man, me thinks. :shk:

It's okay though, you don't have to worry about him, he is working on the taxpayer's dime and he's trying to get China to buy up some interest in New Orleans. Knowing the way this man works as well as I do, quite frankly if he is selling us out in any form to foreign interests then I hope there is a sick passenger on every flight he takes and he remains quarantined until he is elected out of office.

Since he spends so much of his time in Houston, I'm sure we won't notice he's gone.

Wow, just looked at the CDC site and Louisiana has 134 probable/confirmed cases.

Don't dread the winter coming as there are only 621 cases at the moment and if as you say they treble that's only 1863 cases and there is 60,000,000 people in the UK so you should be alright.
