I have not been a member long enough with enough posts to do the u2u email. Could you please email me the copy. Thanks so much. I am wavering in my opinion right now as to whether the media is over reacting or there is something that they know and are not telling us. I pray that it is the fomer rather than the latter. Still waiting to hear from my sister who is in the health care field as to what her briefing on Monday was about. The only thing of note that she said was that employees were reminded of their responsibility to be at work in case this gets worse even if they have family members sick their first obligation was to their job. She asked a coworker in the paking lot where she would be if someone in her family were ill at home or at work and they both agreed their first obligation was to care for their own family. I think most people feel this way. It is not insensitive to the needs of others just human. Anyway, thanks for passing on the email

How do you think the good Doctor feels about you posting his private email and name in a public forum ? Hmm.

He should be ashamed for inciting panic like this.

3 days later got sicker than a dog and was mad when it had me down for a week during season!!! my girlfriend got it too, but she wasn't as bad as me. i thought it was allergies at first but the allergy meds only worked for like an hour or so, then i KNEW it was the flu. it had me down for about a week, all zombie-fied partly cuz i was sick and partly because i took everything i had to try and alleviate the symptoms but NOTHING WORKED. it is different than the normal flu in that with normal flu you feel like you're going to die, with this flu you feel like you ARE dying.
Scientists see this flu strain as relatively mild Genetic data indicate this outbreak won't be as deadly as that of 1918, or even the average winter. By Karen Kaplan and Alan Zarembo April 30, 2009 As the World Health Organization raised its infectious disease alert level Wednesday and health officials confirmed the first death linked to swine flu inside U.S. borders, scientists studying the virus are coming to the consensus that this hybrid strain of influenza -- at least in its current form -- isn't shaping up to be as fatal as the strains that caused some previous pandemics. In fact, the current outbreak of the H1N1 virus, which emerged in San Diego and southern Mexico late last month, may not even do as much damage as the run-of-the-mill flu outbreaks that occur each winter without much fanfare.
Some influenza outbreaks linger for several months. In the case of the 1918 flu pandemic, it first broke out in the spring (like the current one), then it smoldered for months, and then a killer version erupted in August 1918. So it wouldn't hurt to make a few longer-term preparations, like in your food pantry, particularly when they taste good.
What I find amazing is the fact that people think any of the facts they may find are true. Researching on the internet or listening to the MSM will get you all the valid and true info. Most of you are so misled. Someone tries to post something he received from a local Dr. and you bash him claiming that you in all your infinite wisdom do not see the source.....
If you think your government had a change of heart and decided to tell you the truth about this you are foolish. There are a lot more confirmed cases than reported, and Washington is making preparations of its own.
Protect your family, protect yourself. Better safe than sorry. if someone is trying to pass information to you it isn't to have you running in the streets as if the sky were falling. The things listed in the OP's post were good advice. If you choose not to take heed, don't try to make yourself a hero and bash them. In most cases you can't prove anything anyway. The motto of the site is Deny Ignorance, funny how that goes to the way side when something dangerous threatens your way of life. Nearly everyday you see people invalidating the media, yes on this case you are to take them at face value?
