First suspected case of domestic swine flu in China

He took flight OZ221 at 12:30 p.m. on May 23 from New York to Incheon City in the Republic of Korea, and took OZ369 at 7:70 a.m. on May 24 from Incheon to Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong. He developed flu symptoms since then and went to hospital Wednesday (May 27).

World closer to swine flu pandemic, says WHO

So this article states as only spreading in North America NOT lvl 6 but cases of internal transmission have already happened in Spain,AUS and UK and now China surely this means it is already a Pandemic by definition.

Latest figs - I note no update released yesterday?????????
27 May 2009 -- As of 06:00 GMT, 27 May 2009, 48 countries have officially reported 13,398 cases of influenza A(H1N1) infection, including 95 deaths.
So still rising 2/3 % a day.
On a side note tried to book a pneumonia shot but in UK you can only get one if you are at risk!! Trying to find a private way of doing it.
Two New Zealand residents were taken away from the Holiday Inn at Sydney's Darling Harbour today by masked health personnel.
This after 4 days of being allowed to mix freely

Either this is a disaster waiting to happen as we are unsure as to what the virus may mutate into further or it is just overblown and not something to worry about.

Regardless people should clean thier hands after contact with surfaces/before eating and be precautious anyways...

Hopefully ATSers take care of themselves, you are a fun bunch

I personally feel they'll hold off on level 6 until they get a little closer to a vaccine. In the end it's all about the money.

53 countries now and another 5% increase in deaths in 1 day and more than 10% on CONFIRMED cases so there must be an awful lot more going unreported/unconfirmed and this in the quiet season for flu- as most cases are northern hemisphere.

We fulfilled the level 6 requirements at least a month ago.
'They' are holding back. 'They' say they don't want to panic people.

Then why the heck do they have the system in place if they aren't going
to use it when the time comes??

Has anyone else noticed that there have been more deaths in Mexico, after they "reopened" the country's businesses?

Social distancing works during an epidemic. It slowed down there- they opened up, and now people are dying again.

Or else- they have been dying all along and they don't want their economy to bust even more than it has.

We've been at Level 6 for a long time, and I agree that it will be declared when there's a vaccine and people start dropping like flies in the fall.

I know it's a joke

Criminally negligent at best. It just beggars belief how anybody can close everything down to contain a pandemic and then just open up for business as normal a few days later, but then money runs the world and if a few hundred thousand/million / billions of us peasants have to die so be it.

Don't they realise (PTB) that if we are all dead then their money is no good, there will be no food being produced for them to eat and no fuel for their fancy cars/yachts/ planes and other gadgets.

The PTB's have bunkers and the PTB's use government land to grow non GMO crops. They don't eat cattle, because they love hunting. When they release their plagues they will hide in their bunkers like Prince Prospero from the Masque of the Red Death. Eventually, they will die of old age ; they will also die of side effects from their chem trails. The few that have taken immortality serums will be possesed by more benevolent beings in the end. The culture which spawned them will crumble like that of ancient Rome.

Looks like Australia is an index for Pandemic declaration by WHO: cases are doubling every second DAY:

June 1 (Bloomberg) -- Swine flu cases in Australia, doubling about every two days, may convince the World Health Organization to declare the first influenza pandemic in 41 years, said Raina MacIntyre, head of public health at the University of New South Wales.

As the S. Hemisphere enters winter, this is expected, obviously, but with the concommitant infections still ocurring in the N. Hemisphere, and the coincident hospitilizations and deaths, we may see Level 6 sooner than the vaccine is ready. Cases are spreading rapidly within communities- it's hit most all of the schools and universities in the US and the EU- proving transmission without an outside traveller or other vector; China, Japan and Singapore have shown H2H transmission and it seems more people are dying as we go into summer here in the north. All classic indications of a novel virus to which most of us posess no native immunity. If the WHO DOESN'T go Level 6, what kind of evidence is required? And if they do, what does that mean re: civil librties, etc.?

I'm hoping and praying we don't see mutation in virulence genes, or reassortment with other strains, but we have petri dishes everywhere- 3M poeple in Pakistan are displaced and w/o electric or water- breeding ground for disease. N. Korea, Russia, China, Japan, Nato are all deploying troops in advance of aggression; the Israelis and Palestinians are still battling and Israel is staging a major op: all of these drive disease spread and development of virulence.

Fingers crossed it fizzles....but I think we should all get ready.
