540 dead in Mexico...

200 in the last two weeks

200 is the official number.

Official numbers are always severely censored when they describe sensitive information. As Im sure you know, it was reported that only 4000 american soldiers have died in the wars in the last century.

A 13-year-old child in Estonia died of swine flu

A 13-year-old child in Estonia died of swine flu A boy from the Harju County died from the virus H1N1 on the night before Monday, writes EPL Online/LETA.
The child got ill last Friday and he developed a high fever, reported the Ministry of Social Affairs. An ambulance was called on Saturday and the 13-year-old patient was administered fever-reducing medicine, but next morning he had to be hospitalised due to his bad state of health.

The Ministry of Social Affairs announced that the circumstances of the case are being specified; among other things the ministry is trying to determine whether the child had any other illnesses besides the swine flu.

As of last Friday – November 20 –, 269 cases of flu A(H1N1) have been confirmed in Estonia. The Ministry of Social Affairs stated that there is no cause to declare Estonia an area of epidemic.

The Baltic Course

Just to add this is the first case of swine flu case in Estonia that has been ended with death.
What strikes me odd is that the boy was vaccinated on thursday and when he died he also had a bloody cough. No reports on "black lungs" as of yet, will post if any more information comes in.

Nov. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Adrian Gibbs, the virologist who said in May that swine flu may have escaped from a laboratory, published his findings today, renewing discussion about the origins of the pandemic virus.

The new H1N1 strain, which was discovered in Mexico and the U.S. in April, may be the product of three strains from three continents that swapped genes in a lab or a vaccine-making plant, Gibbs, and fellow Australian scientists wrote in Virology Journal. The authors analyzed the genetic makeup of the virus and found its origin could be more simply explained by human involvement than a coincidence of nature.

I've yet to see anything that shows it's worse than Hong Kong flu for instance.. that was nasty. The way all this was played out in the media you'd think it was comparable to the black plague in severity.

The media is not reporting any thing other than to take the vaccine.

I have just seen latest episode of V (episode 4) in which the Visitors wants to inject a vitamin vaccination to every human to help fight canser and so....
Of course the vaccination is about injecting some nasty stuff R6 in humans !

makes you think...

Remember: say no to R6 in our Flu Vaccine

Department of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia;

The clinical response to influenza infection ranges from mild disease to severe pneumonia and it remains unclear whether the inflammatory response to infection is protective or pathogenic. We have defined a novel role for neutrophils in ameliorating lung injury during influenza infection, thereby limiting development of severe disease. Infection of neutrophil-depleted mice with influenza virus HKx31 (H3N2) led to rapid weight loss, pneumonia, and death. Neutropenia was associated with enhanced virus replication in the respiratory tract; however, viral titers were declining at the time of death, leading us to investigate other factors contributing to mortality. In addition to thymic atrophy, lymphopenia, and viremic spread, depletion of neutrophils led to exacerbated pulmonary inflammation, edema, and respiratory dysfunction. Thus, while it is well established that neutrophils contribute to lung injury in a range of pathological conditions, reduced numbers or impaired neutrophil function can facilitate progression of mild influenza to severe clinical disease.

Intense host immune response to infection contributes significantly to the pathology of pneumococcal pneumonia. Therefore, the regulation of host immune response is critical for the successful outcome of pneumonia in such patients. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of n-3 PUFA, i.e. flaxseed oil supplementation for short (4 weeks) as well as long (9 weeks) term, on the course of S. pneumoniae D39 serotype 2 infection in mice. The efficacy of flaxseed oil supplementation was investigated in terms of survival of animals and production of various inflammatory molecules (malondialdehyde, myeloperoxidase, nitric oxide) in the lung homogenate of animals. This was correlated with bacteriological and histopathological parameters. The immunomodulation was studied in terms of cytokines in the lungs following infection with Streptococcus pneumoniae. Results suggest that long-term flaxseed supplementation protected the mice against bacterial colonization of lungs with Streptococcus pneumoniae with reduced histopathological involvement of lung tissue. Moderate pneumonia was observed in supplemented, infected mice compared to severe pneumonia seen in control mice. This was accompanied by decreased inflammatory markers (malondialdehyde, myeloperoxidase, nitric oxide) as the disease progressed. In addition, difference in the levels of pro-inflammatory (TNF-alpha and IL-1beta) and anti-inflammatory (IL-10) cytokines was observed in the flaxseed fed animals. On the contrary, short-term supplementation did not show such an effect on lung colonization.

Eight new swine-flu-related deaths reported


Tuesday, November 24, 2009 at 4:06 p.m.

Swine-flu-related deaths in San Diego County jumped by 22 percent as eight new deaths were reported, including a 42-year-old woman who was otherwise healthy, county health officials said Tuesday.

Some of the deaths occurred as far back as Nov. 5 and it took several weeks to confirm the presence of the H1N1 flu virus, officials said.

The latest report brings the total number of deaths in which the H1N1 virus was the cause or a contributing factor to 45, officials said. Thirty-eight were residents of the county and the remainder were visitors.

Besides the 42-year-old woman, the other people who died suffered from underlying medical conditions: a 44-year-old-man; a 35-year-old woman; a 41-year-old woman; a 47-year-old man; a 67-year-old man who was visiting; a 46-year-old man who was visiting; and a 48-year-old woman who was visiting.

Officials once again urge residents to stay home if they feel ill and to see a doctor if flulike symptoms worsen. Vaccine supplies remain limited throughout the county.

The seeming lack of concern in Hungary over swine flu isn't to say that people aren't aware of it or the dangers that it poses. Yet, judging by the demand for the vaccine it's quite clear that the vast majority of Hungarians feel that the hype is more prevalent than the risk.

Since going on the market, there has been little interest in the vaccine. There are several reasons for this. First and foremost, there is deep mistrust toward the influence of big business in the government vaccine program. Most are convinced that there is collusion between the government and multinational corporations to force upon them something that they don't want and most probably don't really need.

Influenza H1N1 2009, including over 7820 deaths.

WHO have today released an update on the H1N1 situation

"27 November 2009 -- As of 22 November 2009, worldwide more than 207 countries and overseas territories or communities have reported laboratory confirmed cases of pandemic influenza H1N1 2009, including over 7820 deaths.

As many countries have stopped counting individual cases, particularly of milder illness, the case count is likely to be significantly lower than the actual number of cases that have occurred. WHO is actively monitoring the progress of the pandemic through frequent consultations with the WHO Regional Offices and member states and through monitoring of multiple sources of data. "
