Mexican, US Imports Banned


www.straitstimes.com

MOSCOW - RUSSIA, fearing the spread of swine flu, on Sunday banned meat imports from Mexico, several US states and nine Latin American nations, a spokesman for Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said.

It imposed the immediate ban after PM Putin ordered the establishment of a special commission to deal with the threat of swine flu, although no cases have yet been reported in Russia.

Imports of all raw meat and meat products from Mexico and the US states of Texas, California and Kansas shipped...

Wow - this is a big news... Making good to US and Mexican economy, uh?

Russia has been quit silent from tnis pandemic issue, but now they broke the silence with great news bomb - and this will spread all around - "What Putin knows, what we maybe dont?" ... Many country will soon follow this order, I quess - and maybe not banning only food products, but all travel and goods.

I think "SwineFlu" Biowar has begun - and its not natural.

This would seem to be a far bit more serious than a "standard" flue outbreak.

They do indeed know something that we don't!

Except more people have died from the real flu than this flu, and no one from the U.S. even require medical attention to get over the flu. It is so serious

This will be as serious as the media and governments want it to be. I doubt this flu is any worse than SARS or the avian flu. It can seem worse if the governments want it to be and people panic and think everytime they get a cough and runny nose they are dying from the flu

Absolutely true.

Which REALLY begs the question of "Why make such a big global deal about this then?"

Ya know what I mean?

Funny how the states is keeping this low key and here in BC and elsewhere its big news??

Will the censorship ever stop in the states....... I think NOT!!

Edit to add that a second thought also comes to mind, having lived both in Canada and the states .... more people are without medical means in the states so the possibility of spreading it is more real there than other places since people are app to just keel over before they go to the doctor!!

You guys are incorrect, more people have died from all normal flu strains combined maybe but not one single flu strain. This is a single strain the seasonals youre getting are multiple strains. No single strain has killed this many is such a short time. And some people have resistance to those normal strains. No one has resistance to this.

No, it is going to go down. More supply drives price down.

This is complete BS! Here is the thing! The disease is not going to be spread from muscle tissue! This is not the way it works- IT IS A RESPIRATORY PATHOGEN! Also in the US (not true for Mexico) most pigs are intensivily housed (there are still some backyard people but the vast majority of pork in this country comes from large operations) meaning the people who work there gown in to go to the pigs, then the pigs ALL move from the nursery to the growers to the finishers in large groups with NO mixing between the groups. Those pigs are not going to get avian flu! It just does not work like that. It is a terrible system for the individual animal and truthfully I believe cruel however it does slash disease rates which means pigs grow faster and bigger so capitalism wins in this case.

Well the thing I see is I read today there are 615 cases now ..... and if it keeps multiplying wouldn't this number get to a really large amount of people in another week or so??
