Ok, Beefcake, first you say that you think that it's hospital aquired pneumonia, then you change your story and say that it's community aquired pneumonia. Please don't change your story and then tell me you said something you didn't in the first place.
But the speculations on this thread right now is: what is causing the pneumonia (and the original respiratory infection it developed from) in the Ukraine....a virus or a bacteria? (And also, of course....where did it come from? A mutation? Bioterrorism? Another virus completely??)That's what we don't know, and we probably won't know until the labs can tell us.

Um, no, you're wrong. Community aquired pneumonia is not caught in the hospital...it's caught in the community. Hospital aquired pneumonia is caught in the hospital. Hence...the different names.
And no, this thread isn't a waste of time. But you stated something that was wrong (that patients were dying because of hospital aquired pneumonia) which is completely false. And if you worked in the health care field, you would know that.
Forget it, I'm done arguing with you. You obviously don't work in the health care field. I'm placing you on "ignore."

Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a disease in which individuals who have not recently been hospitalized develop an infection of the lungs (pneumonia)

Okay I've been following this thread since the first few pages and here are some of my thoughts. I don't believe it's the it's hospital acquired pneumonia because that doesn't explain the people who haven't been to the hospital. I'm 99% sure that it's not something like Ebola or Marburg because then tens of thousands of people would be dead. The first reports that I saw were talking about some sort of pneumoniac plague, which I believe is still on the table. With all that said to me the most plausible theory is that the H1N1 became more lethal causing people to contract some sort of pneumoniac type disease much like the 1918 Spanias Flu. Just my thoughts!

We aren't scared.
Move on from this thread this will amount to nothing except poor hospital and sanitary conditions making a situation worse.
Beefcake - you turn up at the end of the thread, and obviously have read NOTHING on the thread. The consensus is that this is NOTHING to do with swine flu. I certainly am not taking any vaccine.

I decided to go on but mostly with information that I can back up at least somehow, I have been pretty much silent about the information what I have had from the sources I'm unable to back up for now since they would just raise questions, questions and more questions about their credibility and that's something this thread is suffering already too much.
