There has been another absolutely tragic case of a healthy young adult being killed by swine flu. Even the doctors were shocked at how quick it killed her. I can't remember so many fit people being killed last year.

A MUM-of-three has died from swine flu — after catching a cold off one of her children.

Lindsay Goddard, 36, became the latest Brit to die of pig flu just TEN DAYS after complaining of being unwell.

And it emerged she would normally have been vaccinated against the killer illness because of her job at a chemist — but missed the jab because she was off sick.

Today her family urged everyone to ask their GP for the jab and to be aware of the symptoms.

Daughter Georgia, 17 — who gave her mum a cold before she died — said: "My mum was fit and healthy. She had no underlying illnesses.

Georgia added: "It was so quick. It was a week and then she was gone. Even the doctors in hospital were shocked.

I am trying to find what I read for a link. I don't think its online yet.

Swine flu seems to be confering onto people who catch it, a broader immunity to other influenzas.

The flu to end the flu.

And the more I look into that thought, the more research I find where various mammals have been being infected with lethal forms of H5N1 and H1N1 in the search for a broad spectrum vaccine. For the last 5 years. Pre-dating this outbreak from last year.

Wasn't there some scientists claiming that this was possibly a lab accident release?

More interesting - infection with H1N1 previously has confer some immunity to lethal H5N1 in animal models.

Wouldn't the fact that it is confering in some people the exact effect that labs all over the world were searching for seem.....suggestive?

Priming the populations with one virus, to confer some resistance in some of the population in more desirable populations for when the more deadly virus hits.

Fascinating how H1N1 disappeared during the Northern Hemisphere's summer this year.

Another very tragic and scary case this time of a little girl 3 years old who was perfectly healthy until she got what her parents at first thought was just a cold on 24/12/10

.Doctor releases picture of his daughter, 3, just hours before swine flu killed her in bid to get ALL children to have vaccine

'I want to say to people, to parents, if you can get the vaccine don't hesitate - the risk of not having it and the price you might pay is just too high.'

Lana appeared to have a cold on Christmas Eve. Her mother and father Zana - a doctor specialising in diabetes originally from Kurdistan - became concerned around 2am the following day when she developed a temperature.

They took her to A&E at Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport - where the couple had formerly worked.

Doctors diagnosed an infection and managed to reduce her temperature before sending Lana home.

She appeared a little better when she woke up later that day, opening her presents and eating some Christmas dinner. But she fell asleep in the afternoon and when her parents tried to wake her she started having fits.Lana was rushed to Stepping Hill hospital by ambulance and was treated by a junior doctor. Her parents claim he initially refused to call in a consultant for advice.

Mrs Ameen says the family watched in horror as she continued to have fits for three hours and had to be revived three times. Later that day, a consultant decided to transfer her to Alder Hey Hospital, in Liverpool, because there were no critical care beds at the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.

Mrs Ameen said staff there tried desperately to save her daughter but she died the next day.
