I guess no one actually watches the news? CNN had it on last night that this virus came in from another country into Mexico, they also believe it was done as a terrorist threat. I plan to watch today and see if there are more updates. But if they do close down the border completely we will see higher prices on gas, vegetables and many other things including coffee.

I did read something about Baxter ready to create vaccinations. I do not know if Obama owns any stock in Baxter. The first I've heard of that is through your post.

However, if you want some real, dirty, possibly insidious news about Baxter, Google Czech Republic, Baxter, vaccinations.
Baxter (around a month ago) sent flu vaccinations to countries in Eastern Europe. Scientists there decided to test the vaccinations on lab rats only to find the rat die because the vaccinations had live human and avian flu in them.


Dude but thats what a vaccination is... or dont you understand how vaccinations work. We have no cures for flu, so basically the vaccination is the virus but after it's been slightly beaten up a bit so our immune system can attack it and win - thereby becoming immune to the strain.

Just thought I'd mention that, in case anyone starts getting all paranoid about it.

yeah but don't get deceived. They (the gov, media, producers of news and entertainment for the masses) always try very hard to use the "Terrorist" cliche to satisfy the requests of their Agenda. In my opinion in a way or another they'll always END to say that there has been some terrorist connection even if it was natural or even if it was just the experiment of some stupid scientist. Don't forget the more we progress the more technology is at HAND of everybody, the more individuals can make things that in the past would have been impossible.

It's quite obvious that such a news/fact or hoax can be used in whatever way, positive or negative by the government of USA.

what i find strange is that it still didn't appeared in Florida.
Among other states i'd have said it would have been the first basing on demographics.

Perhaps I am a little slow but I just don't understand it... 103 deaths out of 1600 infected, all in Mexico with a reported 20 milder cases in the U.S. just does not seem that big of a threat... especially when they say that it responds well to tamiflu and other antibiotic medications.

Its nothing like the Spanish flu of 1918 when they could do nothing and people were dropping like flies.

Someone please explain this to me.

I can't think of a reason why. I doubt it has anything to do with race, it probably has more to do with local health care, immunizations throughout their lives, heat, and other factors.

Also, call black people black. When someone says 'negro' it's because they are afraid to say 'black' fearing it is a bad word or something, thereby giving it the negative connotation you were trying to avoid in the first place. Just saying.


Sorry if that may have caused offence. Negro is just the term we use in our house and always have. I wasn't trying to cause or avoid offence, it's just what we call coloured folk, no implications positive or negative intended...


and both words mean black, the world has gone PC mad if you ask me.

And the pieces of the puzzle as to HOW a seasonal human flu virus, 'suddenly' mutates into a virus containing pig, bird and human DNA all mixed together.

For the reason, read this article: www.torontosun.com...

Or this one: hashishian.newsvine.com... ountries-around-the-world

You may begin to understand how this virus has come about...

The really worrying question is one of: Is this a sadistic insidious money making exercise, or are there other reasons to engineer and then release a TRI-DNA, human to human virus?

Keep safe...

What i find even more frightening is the prospect of getting a vaccination to fight this if they come out with one. Anyone remember about 2-3 months ago the vaccines that were given to something like 18 countries that they accidentally
had bird flu in them. Something is definitely not right with all of this. Someone is either trying to make money here or this is a population thinning test.

The company that made those vaccines that had bird flu in them was from Illinois.

Homeless people die after bird flu vaccine trial in Poland



The medical staff, from the northern town of Grudziadz, are being investigated over medical trials on as many as 350 homeless and poor people last year, which prosecutors say involved an untried vaccine to the highly-contagious virus.


www.telegraph.co.uk...

There are no mistakes in what is happening! Do not take any vaccination!! This man made swine flu strain will mutate with the HN51............it will take about two months before the mutation is complete unless there is help in doing so...........Then it will become the killer!!

Stay away from the vaccines!!

I was thinking earlier about why the flu isn't deadly here.. Is there a possibility that its because of the difference in temperature? Its hotter in Mexico then it is in Ohio or New York (usually). Could there be a possibility that this flu will become as deadly as Mexico's when the weather warms up for the summer??? I know that germs spread in warmer temps, could the cold weather be the only thing saving us right now?


There water supply isn't as good as ours which doesn't help the situation. Mexico is a poor nation and for most people needing to drink more liquids when they are sick, water might be all they have.

It may have been posted already and I missed it, but here is a link that details exactly what a "Public Health Emergency" means for governmental authority:

The Emergency Health Powers Act in a Public Health Emergency

Edit: That's South Carolina but I'm sure it's similar in most states. LOTS of power.

A flu vaccine takes a year to develop... I seriously doubt we will see one any time soon.

As it stands right now I see no reason to be either alarmed or paranoid... and I have COPD and any flu that effects breathing hits me hard.

From the Scottish Health Secretary,



The Scottish Government had been due to start a pandemic flu exercise on Monday which Ms Sturgeon said was a "coincidence". The exercise has since been suspended.

Sounds like somebody knew.

UPDATE:

Guan Yi, a virology professor at the University of Hong Kong who helped to fight SARS and bird flu, said a pandemic looked inevitable.

"I think the spread of this virus in humans cannot possibly be contained within a short time ... there are already cases in almost every region. The picture is changing every moment ...

"We are counting down to a pandemic."
