I was just watching CNN AC360 and across the bottom it said 6 deaths in Canada and 1 in Spain. I'm sure I read this right, but I will keep searching for a confirmation link. I didn't read the tread for the last couple hours, so I hope this isn't old news.


No death in Canada yet, only a few mild cases. Probably a typo on CNN's behalf

That's a serious typo at this stage. They should be more careful.

Wow if some of you aren't a testament to what's wrong with our country I don't know what is. Instead of taking maybe a box of masks you gotta take more than you obviously need and wipe out the whole store? What about other people? (snip) Nobody gives a flying (snip) about anyone anymore.

Modesty people. We are going to have to be in this for the long haul. Don't be a typical american for once and practice some discipline and don't exhaust all of our resources right out of the gate. Trust me people, this thing is not going anywhere for awhile.

I didnt buy tons of them. I got 5 packs and didnt horde them. I gave some to my parents, Enough for my wife, son and one other family member. That way they wouldnt have to go out there if there is a mad rush. I would never buy all of them. Your right buy buying them all, you could inturn be screwing other people over. We need to work together in a time of crysis and try to help as many people as we can.

nice language !
what would 11 boxes of mask do for a community of 25,000? i didnt buy any from my local walmart but someone sure did. in times like this its better to worry about your own ass and those you love.

do you really think people are going to give a crap about you when the shtf?

I talked to a Mexican guy I work with today. He told me he had spoken with his mother in Mexico City yesterday (Sunday). According to her, the hospitals in Mexico City are full. His nephew was supposed to go in for a minor surgery, but this was not possible due to the influx of flu patients. Mexico City would not be a fun place to be right now... Largest city in the Western Hemisphere, 22 million people or something like that, overwhelmed hospitals, schools closed until further notice...On the ground, it does not look good. Hopefully, deaths in other affected areas will remain low or non-existent. Andy

I do tend to agree with you on that. I can assure you that none of my neighbors would give me a mask if the saw that I didnt have one. But if I have enough to share I will sure try to help. I have a wife and small child to worry about. Everyone else comes in very close to the bottom of the list after them

Yeah I see that now. I am looking for updates but not much luck yet.

It looks like 2 were sent last week and more were sent I am assuming today? Really wish I knew where these were coming from.

Edit to add I just found it looks like it came out of South Bend

On Monday, two patients at The South Bend Clinic showed possible symptoms. Doctors are now waiting on further testing from the state to determine if those patients have the swine flu or some other strain.

Sorry not sure how to post links yet but found it on WSBT channel 2

cool you are probably 2 hours west of me. im guessing the first outbreaks in iowa will be in the quad cities area because its just 2 hours from chicago . also des moines, ames, iowa city, and cedar rapids are places where i could see this thing really get legs in iowa.

this will be an interesting weekend on the earth in a morbid and tragic way

if the shtf and this becomes a world wide pandemic, your family will be the only people you should care for and most your friends wont even be your friends anymore.

it would become sort of an everyone for themselves scenario.

95% of people or more are not ready for a pandemic.

and they will be looking to prey on people who were.

You knew this had to happen, now Twitter and swine flu make the news...

www.cnn.com...


(CNN) -- The swine flu outbreak is spawning debate about how people get information during health emergencies -- especially at a time when news sources are becoming less centralized.

Some observers say Twitter -- a micro-blogging site where users post 140-character messages -- has become a hotbed of unnecessary hype and misinformation about the outbreak, which is thought to have claimed more than 100 lives in Mexico.

"This is a good example of why [Twitter is] headed in that wrong direction, because it's just propagating fear amongst people as opposed to seeking actual solutions or key information," said Brennon Slattery, a contributing writer for PC World. "The swine flu thing came really at the crux of a media revolution."


In other words... Don't trust the information on twitter you fools... ONLY the MSM can inform you properly.
