I went to the local medical center today and it was the busiest I've ever seen it. There was a notice on the door saying if you have returned from Mexico to wait outside with a mask... There were three mexican-looking people outside on the bench by the door without masks and I walked right by them

Here is a realy good map that is updated and covers all infections including all flu infections, not just swine flu

healthmap.org...

Latest update seems to be pointing to Australia/New zealand as being the next area of concern due to 14 new confirmations in Australia and 66 ! yes that is 66 in New zealand in the last 24 hours.

Listing from the updated RSOE EDIS allert map.

Link www.idemc.org...

USA 142 infected
Australia 16 infected ...6 quaranteened
Brazil 1 in quaranteen
Canada 10 infected
Switzerland 5 infected
spain 4 infected...17 quaranteened
UK 23 infected
Ireland 4 infected
Israel 1 infected
S.Korea 1 infected
Mexico 2018 infected....155 dead
New Zealand 70 infected ? 11 quaranteened
Peru 1 infected
Taiwan 7 infected


does anyone have any information regarding the next scheduled update from the authorities in the UK?

Although I dont know how valuable it will be seeing as they sat on the 2 confirmed in Monklands hospital for 18 hours before notifying the public.

Respects

So far here in the UK, all we are getting is this type of info whic all seems to be a bit out of date or very slow in keeping up with everything else.. I am finding that I am having to check external (outside UK) sources for info, but obviously ATS is the best and quickest due to the extreme determination and effort by everyone here to keep track of things.. .


Two people tested positive for the virus and are being treated in isolation in hospital in Airdrie, near Glasgow, while seven more people among 22 who have been in contact with them have developed "mild symptoms" not confirmed as swine flu.

uk.news.yahoo.com...

Prime Minister Gordon Brown has pledged that the Government would take "all the action necessary" to prevent the spread of swine flu.

He was speaking as the Foreign Office warned Britons to avoid all but essential travel to Mexico as the UK braced itself for further cases of the virus.
Two people have tested positive for the virus and are being treated in isolation in hospital in Airdrie, near Glasgow

The new travel advice was issued after the World Health Organisation (WHO) raised its alert over the outbreak to level four, from three - signifying a "significant increase in risk of a pandemic".

The Foreign Office said: "We are now advising against all but essential travel to Mexico."

It said British nationals "resident in or visiting Mexico may wish to consider whether they should remain in Mexico at this time".

The first two British cases have been confirmed and more suspected infections are beginning to emerge.
itn.co.uk...

That is about the best and most recent data here in UK..
Talk on what the PM will make sure of and talk just runnng over the same old ground..

The only other news relating to most of this is the more than obvious plugs to promote Tamiflu drug...




"From some affected areas, it appears that early doses of antivirals such as Tamiflu are helping people to recover." He said there were enough antivirals to treat "half the population" if they became ill.
itn.co.uk...




They prescribed me Tamiflu and I am now feeling much better now.
news.bbc.co.uk...

This last one here seems very suspiscious to me ..so i kinda got a thread going about it.. it seems that the promotion of Tamiflu is more important than keeping the public informed about the reality..

Breaking news in New Zealand a few minutes ago:




BREAKING The Director of Public Health has announced that some of the Rangitoto College party have tested positive for swine flu H1N1. Results from three of the samples were received earlier this evening by World Health Organisation's Melbourne laboratory and all tested positive for the same swine flu strain. Testing continues on a fourth sample. On the basis of these results the Ministry is assuming all of the people in the group who tested positive for influenza A have swine flu.

In 1948 Heinrich Mueller, the former head of the Gestapo, told his CIA Interrogator that the most devastating plague in human history was man-made.

He was referring to the influenza pandemic of 1918-1919 that infected 20% of the world's population and killed between 60 and 100 million people. This is roughly three times as many as were killed and wounded in World War One, and is comparable to WWII losses, yet this modern plague has slipped down the memory hole.

I am so sorry about this news!

If somewhere, there in paradise this kind of flu will spread like a tornado...

"Every lost "Thai" is a great lost to all humankind!"

I am so glad that my family stays nowdays in middle Thailand, out from tourist centers - in Nakhonsawan.

ive been watching this story develope for a while now, its all over the news almost constant now, it now looks like a pandemic is highly likley well thats what i think. any way just did my shopping stock up on anti flu things & thought ide let you know i can not find a single chemist in the camden area (london) that has any face masks left !!!, all sold out, i guess there must be quite a few freaked out londoners.
at present i think the only uk swine flu cases are in scotland, but there are many uk citizens still in mexico waiting to return, likley via heathrow so ide expect london underground tubes to spread this thing realy well. any way i didnt see a single person on the streets of camden wearing a face mask......yet, but im sure its just a matter of time now.
oh yes i have 2 questions
1:what is the best face mask to stop swine flu infecting you ?
2:recomend a uk web site selling the best face mask thanks.
oh one last thing that concerns me is, the face masks i often see being used in mexico, do not fit well & seem to have gaps allowing infected air into the persons lungs
does these gaps bother any one els ?, please give your opinion about cheap face masks that do not protect very well.

I'm trying to locate the information the journalists mentioned at the WHO conference - reports of 50 dying a day in Mexico. WHO seemed to acknowledge it as well.

ok 234 confirmed- 26 dead.. so the mortality rate at the moment is slightly over 10% though that is most likely way off as the statistics are still two low to show a trend

Cooler, have you tried the hardware stores? Anything that's firm fitting on the face and has strong elastic bands I'd say would do.

Sanding masks for instance, but I guess something that's easy enough to breathe through.

I've read some people are buying full-on respirators, but really, anything that stops droplets getting through would do.

Goodness, only just thought of buying masks, better get some tomorrow


Ooh, and a tube of antibacterial something-a-rather for washing hands mightn't go astray.
