If this really were to happen this would be the worst case scenrio, with a 50% death rate. Where in the world is this happening? Is that why the flu tracker is reporting 2000 deaths in KS? I thought it was just a fluke? Is it because it has a more dangerous strain?

That sounds alarming but confusing too. I thought the hospitals were no longer testing for H1N1 but just "assuming" you had it if you had flu like symptoms.
Also, if they're doing testing, doesn't it take a few days to weeks to get the results back?
How are these kids testing positive? Can you please clarify for us?
And thanks for keeping us posted in real time as to what is unfolding in your area.

So anything that someone dies from that is a flu or flu related will be counted regardless if it is H1N1?
Why are they trying so hard to scare us? To control us?
The problem is if you don't have hard numbers how do you know what the real mortality rate is? You can only guess? I hate playing guessing games when it comes to health.
I only hope we NEVER have something like the bubonic plague, small pox ebola here in the USA widespread. Boy the government really would have us in a bind then. If no one knows what the hell is going on; then the whole country would be doomed!

@Dustin, your right is not to take medication but its state's responsibility to vaccinate or medicate you.
Not even a case of opinion. Not getting it is simply extremely selfish.
That's so very high-school teenagery of you.
Here's the funny thing about epidemics. If everyone gets vaccinated, there's very little spread of the disease and very few deaths. And nobody sees it as a crisis averted, they see it as an overblown when in fact things went as designed.
Which is why the psycho paranoia about the vaccine is #ing stupid beyond belief, as is anyone who buys the stupid psycho paranoia.

Since this story came out this morning, I've been looking hard at the news today because I think that this is a deflection to keep our attention from something. I think I may have found something. A judge in New York just ruled that a $450K mortgage be canceled - as in the people get to keep the house for free - because the bank didn't have the paperwork (and most of them don't nowadays). Now, THAT is something that TPTB wouldn't want many to hear about.

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!! As serious as this H1N1 is I always said that you must watch for the smoke screen I am waiting for our government to push some bill through or something while everyone is fixed on the H1N1...VERY GOOD... you my friend have common sense!!!

Nothings going to happen. I don't trust the vaccine but there will be no quarantine or mandatory vaccinations due to the fact that no one would enforce it. Cops wouldn't enforce it because why would they put their own families in a quarantine or force them to get an vaccine? Same with the army.
