Ontario deputy premier George Smitherman told reporters on Monday that about 10 to 12 potential cases of swine flu in the province are being checked.


Being reported out of Ontario at the moment, Health Minister says more to come.


In P.E.I., the province’s chief health officer announced eight people who recently returned from Mexico are being tested for swine flu after showing flu-like symptoms.


From the same source, cases are popping up everywhere.

That's a good point. It is kinda like when George was watching Katrina happen like a made for TV movie. (Thank You Lewis Black
)

"Damn!, I didn't know it was on tonight! Look at those special effects, and all those extras!"


It also has the feelings like when they said it was safe to go down to ground zero after 9/11 to clean up.


Anyway, back to the topic. This is usually how a government deals with any problem they don't know very much about or aren't very prepared to deal with.

They will tell us everything is fine, until it gets so bad the MSM starts to criticize the governments response, and then we get an apology and the director of FEMA resigns.

More arm flailing and less work. The government as usual.

Its amazing how it is spreading worldwide for all to see, even though many of these are unconfirmed. Just shows you how unprepared we are for any type of event like this, look how long it's taking them to confirm or not all of these cases.

Not sure, but if they do I think this is when they will do it.

My guess is that the ones that aren't going to be confirmed as "Swine Flu" are simply a downgrated mutation of the virus.

There could be the potential to see 2 or 3 different strains of this virus if goes global. They may be simply not telling us that they've identified multiple strains.

Probably because they have no more idea than the man in the moon what is really going on. But seriously i don't know...maybe just a precaution.

Lots of Canadians go to Mexico this time of the year. Cheap flights recently probably help.

You knew this was coming when you see on the map that the two areas of infections noted were LITERALLY on the opposite ends of the World's second largest country. That should trip a bit of a "hmmmmmmm....."

I don't think that's actually true. We are well prepared for this, we've been expecting this for decades, and the H5N1 virus put everyone on alert.

They have to ensure that suspected cases are or not confirmed cases, stating that they are prematurely only to find that they aren't would be embarrassing and damaging to the tracking of this virus.

So far, they are doing things right, they are monitoring travel, they are tracking those who have come into contact with suspected cases. It took a while to get the monitoring up and running (like the thermal imaging in airports) but they got there.

They don't yet have the capability to identify different strains. The rapid test being used is a test of exclusion - not this, not this, not this....ah crap the only thing left is THIS!

News from contacts here in Scotland.....Monklands hospital knew it was confirmed positive in two people late last night.

Independent Organisations who have crisis/cover plans to cover areas such as people with learning difficulties etc are putting staffing, food and provisions and medication plans into operation over the next 24 hours.

I can understand their need to be prepared. I used to be in field.

yup, Gonna have to agree with you on this one.

People are jumping to conclusions on this matter. The reality is it is far too soon to say anything conspiracy related on this subject.

I think we all have a enough with worrying how bad this thing is going to turn in the coming days and weeks.

All Im saying is why haven't the cases in Kansas and other places been ruled out or confirmed. Seems to me a faster clinical test would free up resources to be used elsewhere. They have had years to prepare for something like this and this is the best they can do?

Anyone have the link to the press conference?

Canadian Province of Nova Scotia's Public Health confirms they believe the infection has entered the community. They are expecting it to start spreading through the province over the next couple of weeks.
