The Swine flu "Hoax" is designed to be concerning in it's very nature, and government and media reports on this issue can not be trusted. Not a jot or tittle of it.

Thanks, for your concern; however, you are late to the party.

Those who've read, posted, followed, or accidentally clicked on this thread already know the 'spill'. Yeah, yeah...the news is soooo over dramatizing this whole pandemic thing. At least that's what we've been told...here, on this very thread.

Only, most of us aren't really seeing this media coverage that many have spoke of. Where is it? Perhaps you're one of those 'chosen people' who are getting the real-news. I've heard about it, I've read about it...

Please, oh please will you post a link? I'd so like to see what the 'chosen class' is privy to; as, mine has been silent.

If they (your media) posts anything informative, or emergent, could you please be so kind as to paste it here on ATS, so some of us common folk could get a glance at what your world is like?

We've heard so much about it, sad that it's only been here....by only a few posters who come in late and post the wide-spread hype right to our face! Then, turn to leave without an explanation....

If it weren't for ATS, I wouldn't have known that the world was at a level 6 Pandemic.

To the previous poster, thanks for the lovely response. I make no applogy for not being on this site for "the party" from the beginning of 9000 plus thread posts on swine flu. Having said that, I thought people on a conspriarcy site would have a few clues about fear mongering media involvment in said fear mongering. Obvioulys not. Shocking!!


I also assumed that in over 9000 posts someone here would have already posted this and or information like it.

Perhaps it has been and been removed. I can't see any other reason why a conspriacy site wouldnt have at least one informed individual on such topics, or perhaps this site is only designed so that they can sell advertising on every single product under the sun with clever little word links to products for sale??

Frankly I dont see the point in posting every news report in the main stream media on this issue here either unless its to expose lies, then perhaps there would be room for some truth. It's the role of sites like this to promote the truth, not act as just another media outlet, surely?? You found out that it's a 6 panmdemic form ATS? Well arent you lucky. When are you off to get your jabb then?? Let us know when the symptoms start paralysing you, won't you? is ATS informing you where to get your injection at discounted rates aswell??? Do keep us informed.

Your lucky I bothered posting this information because frankly your attitude stinks!

I thought I would stop back by and see if this thread had gotten back to giving good news and updates, I see it has not and it still the same bashing and arguing.. This is very sad as this pandemic is in its early phased and has not yet even came close to peeking.

Has it not been seen that this "FLU" is mutating and starting to kill more people? It is recombining and could very possibly mutate with many other "Things " in the Middle-East and also South America.

I still hope people are following this as it progresses as it is till in the early stages.

Well I will go back to my hole now to were I can get unbiased info and can come to my on determinations about this situation.

Thanks to the people that are posting valuable information for people to see.

Peace to everyone!

Might as well try to get this back on track a little


The numbers keep on rising, especially among the young, and the buzzwords "underlying medical conditions" keep pace alongside. Also, China wasn't successful in their attempts to nip it in the bud at the airports.

Health officials say they are expecting a massive rise in the number of H1N1 flu cases over the coming weeks.

There are currently 258 confirmed cases in New Zealand and 728 suspected cases.

The Ministry of Health says although most cases have been mild to moderate, it's likely some severe cases may emerge, given this happens with ordinary seasonal flu in winter.

TRENTON -- The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services Friday, June 19 announced a fourth death of a New Jersey resident with novel H1N1 influenza.

The individual was a 36-year old Union County male, who died June 3 in Trinitas Regional Medical Center. He was hospitalized on June 1 with cough and fever. He had underlying medical conditions.

The state lab confirmed today that the individual had H1N1 influenza.

“Our condolences go out to this individual’s family during this very difficult time,” said Health and Senior Services Commissioner Heather Howard. “We continue to stress the seriousness of influenza – an illness that can unfortunately lead to death. The Department emphasizes that all New Jersey residents should remain vigilant and take proper precautions to protect themselves and their families.”

To date, New Jersey has 465 confirmed cases of H1N1 influenza in 19 counties, all but Cape May and Salem. There are also 248 probable cases pending confirmatory testing in the state lab.

BEIJING (Reuters) - China closed a primary school in the southern province of Guangdong on Sunday after 30 pupils were diagnosed with the H1N1 strain of flu, the Xinhua news agency said on Sunday.

Guangdong province has 111 confirmed H1N1 cases, the most of any region of China.

Six students at the Shipai Township Central Primary School fell ill on Wednesday, followed by another 24 on Thursday and Friday, Xinhua said.

None had left the city of Dongguan for 10 days before they came down with the flu, and there had not previously been any known cases in the area, Xinhua said.

WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) -- State health officials say the death of a 12-year-old Wausau area girl -- the fourth person to die of H1N1 flu in Wisconsin -- continues a pattern of the virus sickening more youths than adults.



Marathon County Health Officer Julie Willems Van Dijk of Wausau says it's unknown why the number of young people with H1N1 flu is so much higher.

She says researchers are investigating whether older people who were exposed to H1N1 flu in the 1970s may have some protections that young people don't.



TORONTO — The pandemic that hit like a cyclone but mellowed to a cool breeze could still take the world by storm.

That's why it's crucial, in the relatively present calm, to soak up lessons from the on-going swine flu situation, say speakers at a disaster management conference taking place in Toronto this week.

"There's a belief we missed the bullet, which is a little unnerving," said Regina Phelps, founder of San Francisco-based consulting company Emergency Management and Safety Solutions.

"That says to me people are thinking 'Gee, we're done, we missed it, we lucked out, it wasn't bad and life is going to continue on as it is.' Which could be a huge mistake."

If seasonal flu strikes this fall as expected, there's also potential for a more vicious second wave of illness and deaths related to the new H1N1 virus. It's something everyone should prepare for, Phelps said.

"We're in a situation that is evolving and that is highly fluid and if anyone tells you they know what is going to happen they're totally fooling themselves, because no one actually does."


But don't worry - Regina and a great many others are probably paid to say that, aren't they? What do I know? I'm merely a sheep after all

This train has momentum again; I can feel it!

HONG KONG, June 21 (Xinhua) -- The Pacific island nation of Fiji has been added to the list of A/H1N1-infected countries on Sunday, by recording its first case of A/H1N1 virus.

A 36-year-old male Fiji resident, who recently returned home from Australia, showed symptoms of cough and fever. It was confirmed on Saturday that he tested positive of the A/H1N1 virus, said Health Ministry officials.

"The man is currently under isolation at his home where our medical team is treating him," the Fijilive website on Sunday quoted Ministry of Health public relations officer Iliesa Tora as saying

Swine flu may become resistant to Tamiflu if it mingles with one of this season's influenza strains, experts warn.

World-renowned Canterbury virologist Dr Lance Jennings said one of the two strains of seasonal influenza circulating this year was resistant to Tamiflu.

It was possible this resistant strain would mutate with the influenza A (H1N1) virus and affect Tamiflu's ability to medicate swine flu, Jennings said.

"Viruses do mutate ... The only thing we can do is be prepared."

If swine flu became resistant to Tamiflu, New Zealand had stocks of another drug, Relenza, that could combat influenza, he said. Relenza was developed before Tamiflu and its chemical makeup made it tougher for viruses to develop resistance.

"If A (H1N1) became resistant to Tamiflu, that would be bad. But the worst-case scenarios are Avian flu mutating, so it can spread between humans, or the swine flu developing into a more deadly form," Jennings said.


What do we know about Relenza?

South America still getting hit hard

www.easybourse.com...

BOGOTA (AFP)--Colombia on Sunday reported its second swine flu death, with three more fatalities suspected to involve the virus, as the pandemic continued its slow but steady march across South America.

The confirmed victim, a 28-year-old man, became infected with the A(H1N1) virus without leaving the country, National Health Institute (INS) director Juan Gonzalo Lopez said.

It was "a very aggressive case," he said, adding that the man died Friday, two days after falling ill with swine flu symptoms.

Three other deaths are being investigated as suspected swine flu cases in Colombia, where authorities say the number of confirmed infections has risen to 68.

Buffalo NY teen dies from H1N1 - article stated that he "died from complications from the H1N1 virus including pneumonia and MRSA".

I wonder if the MRSA pneumonia was caused by the H1N1 or if the MRSA was caught after the H1N1? Or is there a possibility that H1N1 and MRSA have combined?

Apparently there is a MRSA drug-resistant pneumonia that is also causing concern:

www.hc2d.co.uk...

Edit - Just found this article:

"The drug-resistant infection triggers a form of pneumonia in those weakened by viruses such as swine flu and kills half its victims in under 72 hours.

A report in health journal The Lancet Infectious Diseases said the infection could raise the death risk among potential swine flu victims. It can live in the nose or throat and pose no danger – but if the carrier is weakened by a virus like flu it can cause the lung condition. "

Until last friday, average daily death for the week was 10. In the last 3 days, there's officialy only one death linked to swine flu.
A massive cover up is surely going on in the US.

Large jump in swine flu deaths.

WHO: 51 more swine flu deaths as pandemic spreads

2 hours ago

GENEVA (AP) — The World Health Organization says the global tally of deaths from swine flu has increased by 51 to 231.

WHO says most of the latest deaths occurred in the United States.

It says Colombia, Chile and Canada have also reported fatal cases.

WHO says the number of reported cases reached 52,160 on Monday. This is an increase of 7,873 since Friday.

The global body says Algeria, Bangladesh, Brunei, Fiji and Slovenia reported their first cases over the weekend.

Earlier this month, WHO declared swine flu a "moderate" pandemic that would likely continue for 1-2 years.
