She is the first person to die of swine flu in Yolo County, health officials said Saturday.

The Yolo County Coroner's Office identified the woman as Stacey Speegle Hernandez, 30, of Esparto.

Yolo health officials issued a statement on the death Friday, confirming it was related to swine flu

CAIRO, Aug 9 (KUNA) -- Egyptian health authorities are concerned over a risk that the H1N1, which is commonly referred to as swine flu, and the much deadlier H5N1 avian flu virus could combine with seasonal human influenza.
Speaking to KUNA, Egyptian Minister of Health Hatem Al-Gabali said the bird and swine flu pose the same source of danger to human health, warning against potential mixed human cases.
He also cautioned that there are several strains of swine flu, just like seasonal influenza, possible the most serious of which is the new flu virus that combines swine, avian and human flu.
Therefore, he urged all citizens to be cautious and obey preventive measures in a serious manner given that avian flu has become endemic in Egypt.
He said Egypt had reported a total of 82 avian flu human cases since the virus outbreak in the country, including 27 death cases, which is the highest rate in the world.
The Egyptian government has set an effective preventive plan to curb the disease ahead of the school year, which would start as scheduled on September 26, with the first class week to be allocated for teaching schoolchildren how to prevent infection.
As many as 329 swine flu cases have been detected in Egypt so far, with only one death case, while 236 have recovered, and the remaining cases are still receiving medication at hospital.
The World Health Organization (WHO) had announced that the H1N1 virus was stable and there was no sign of it mixing with avian flu or other influenza viruses.
However, it warned that the influenza virus was highly unpredictable and had great potential for mutation.

The swine flu vaccine which will be offered to 12 million children in the UK may not have been tested on infants by the time the first batches arrive.

Pharmaceutical companies manufacturing the jabs do not have any paediatric safety data for the drugs, which could be distributed to children in the autumn.

The first consignment of the vaccine is due to arrive at the end of this month but drugs firms have only just begun trials on adults.

Trials on children may not start for a few weeks.

If forced to let yourself be vaccined: Demand AstraZeneca’s MedImmune, which is administered nasally – not per injection, whereby you avoid the squalene induced Gulf War Syndrome and thimerosal effects! Europeans – do wake up now!
Der Spiegel 7. Aug. 2009: This is a heretofore unseen experiment on the Europeans. Of the 25 million German citizens to be vaccinated in the first stage, close to 250,000 could suffer a serious reaction to the vaccine, but there are virtually no data on the effects of a new adjuvant — a component used to stretch the active ingredient — used in the GSK vaccine on pregnant women.The Novartis vaccine grows on dog cells, which can cause tumors in animal experiments. The US agency charged with regulating drugs, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), has thus far refused to approve flu vaccines containing adjuvants.
It is only too convenient for drug companies when new vaccines and production processes to combat swine flu are tested on millions of Europeans. Indeed, instead of having to pay for testing, the drug companies stand to profit handsomely from this approach. ers-escape-exists/

MOSCOW, August 7 (RIA Novosti) - Official WHO figures record 1,550 deaths from swine flu worldwide and more than 200,000 confirmed cases, Russia's consumer watchdog Rospotrebnadzor said on Friday.

"As of August 7, the total number of laboratory confirmed human cases of swine flu caused by the A/H1N1 virus has reached 202,151, including 1,550 lethal cases, according to data from World Health Organization regional bureaus," a statement said.

On Thursday, the number of deaths from swine flu stood at 1,444, Rospotrebnadzor reported.

Russian sanitary officials are continuing with checks on the condition of airline passengers who arrive from countries with confirmed cases of swine flu.

Rospotrebnadzor said that in the previous 24 hours it had examined about 14,000 passengers and 880 crew members on 124 flights arriving at 17 Russian airports from North, South and Central America, Spain, Japan, the Dominican Republic, China, Thailand, Cyprus, Britain and Turkey. Transit flights are also being checked.

Since the beginning of monitoring Rospotrebnadzor has examined over 10,000 flights, about 840,000 passengers and over 67,000 crew members, officials said.

Russian health officials said on Monday that the number of confirmed swine flu cases in Russia had reached 55.

One more case has been officially confirmed in the city of Lipetsk, about 370 kilometers (230 miles) south of Moscow. Local sanitary officials said on Friday that a 16-year-old had returned from Malta with symptoms of the disease.

Students and teachers infected with the dangerous and unpredictable H1N1 virus should immediately be isolated and given a mask, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Friday.

The guideline is part of a larger, comprehensive plan issued by the federal government for public and private schools (kindergarten through 12th grade) preparing to reopen in the fall, and it revises an earlier directive to shutter classrooms in an outbreak, which left working parents in a child-care quandary during last spring's panic.

Mutation to more lethal flu virus due to mass vaccination
This is striking in light of the multi-billion dollar worldwide effort to rapidly manufacture huge stocks of vaccines, up to an unprecedented 2 billion doses Public health officials are fearful this unusual strain of H1N1 influenza virus may mutate into a more lethal form in the fall as did the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918.
Researchers at Shizuoka University in Japan, writing in a recent March 2009 issue of the Public Library of Science (PLoS One): “Mass vaccination, unless well monitored, may actually induce the dreaded gene mutation that could result in more cases, increased hospitalizations and a larger death tolls.”

SvinefluThe paradox is that if the virulence of a vaccine-resistant flu strain is less than that of the vaccine-vulnerable strain, the epidemic might increase in proportion to the percentage of the population that elects to undergo vaccination. Researchers conclude that "a vaccination that is expected to prevent the spread of the disease can instead foster the spread of the disease."

Iran is taking further steps to slow the spread of the H1N1 virus, canceling flights to Saudi Arabia before Ramadan. The government has already banned its citizens from making pilgrimages to Mecca during the Muslim holy month, which starts in less than two weeks.

Government officials say the last flight from Iran to Saudi Arabia will be Monday and all Iranian pilgrims now in the Arab country will be flown home before Ramadan.
