New flu virus in three Iowa kids raises concern about wider spread


vitals.msnbc.msn.com...

Three children in Iowa have come down with a new type of flu virus previously linked to pigs, but this time the bug appears to have been spread by people.

The children, who live in rural Webster and Hamilton counties, did not become seriously ill, said Dr. Patricia Quinlisk, medical director for the Iowa Department of Public Health. But the detection of the virus known as swine-origin A/H3N2 in patients who hadn't had contact with animals raises concerns about potentially greater spread of a new type of flu.

"We have pretty good evidence of person-to-person spread," Quinlisk said. "N

Here we go folks, could this be the one? Will this virus be the one that wipes out a good portion of the population? Maybe this is a CDC develped virus, intentionallly realeased to the public? Are you and yours ready for this? I am a germaphobe so I am pretty sanitized lol but, I'm also in the public alot. So lets hope this is just localized incidents.

You do know you can be too clean right? You need some exposure to germs to build immunity.

Didn't we go through this crap in 2009? No plague then and we were all gonna die they said.

It's already happened before so it can happen again.



Health officials are investigating a never-before-seen form of the flu that combines pig, bird and human viruses and which has infected seven people in California and Texas. All the victims recovered, but the cases are a growing medical mystery because it's unclear how they caught the virus.

That's about the time my family will get flu vaccines: When pigs fly.

Yup,

Will we see "Deady FLU" warnings over the TV and on the cell phones? Obama has the power to address the entire nation with the flick of a switch now. Will he use it and was this the plan all along?

Just after the entire Country witnessed the Emergency Broadcast Test, will this be the first use of the new system?

Perhaps...

275,000 people were hospitalized and 17,000 Americans died because of H1N1. Nothing to sneeze at.

BTW, the flu is a virus, a plague is a bacterial infection.

Death is not the biggest concern, it is widespread infection. H1N1 was a decendant of the Spanish flu which took out a large number of teh workforce ad was the deadliest pandemic in human history. its the crippling of how society operates that causes a big concern as well as death. 30% of teachers, firefighters, police officers, doctors, bankers, credit movers being removed from the workforce is an issue.

If you jog your memory then you will remember that it took months for them to come up with H1N1 vaccine.The article states that certain shots in the 90s will offer some protection. That is how pandemics start is because its a new strain that they don't have a vaccine for yet.

Your excerpt said the chidlren "did not become seriously ill," so my guess is no.

We vaccinate for the flu, including an H3N2 strain, every year. If this strain spreads, we'll drop it into the next batch of the seasonal vaccine. If it doesn't wait for the next flu season, we'll do another monovalent vaccine like we did in 2009--and then put it in the seasonal vaccine, like we did with the 2009 pandemic strain in subsequent years.

I'm confused. Is the article saying the children got sick with H3N2, or from a new type of flu derived from H3N2? H3N2 has been around for a long time, several decades I believe. It's amazing how many people die from the flu annually, I think its around 30,000 in the U.S.

Anyway, the flu is not that serious. If you have a weak immune system then I guess it can be, but that is -mostly- your own fault. I had swine flu back in '10 and it really wasn't that bad. I felt like poop, same with any flu, took my vitamin C, ate plenty of vegetables, 2 days later I was right as rain.

I think people really do need to watch their diet more. Your body lives off of the food you eat, so eating improperly will give your body a lesser chance of warding off disease and illness. I take about 100-200% of vitamin C daily from grapefruit juice, delicious AND nutritious!

Did you actually say that 30,000 people died but its not that serious? That if you eat vegetables you will be fine?


did you actually get tested and know it was teh swine flu?

Correct me if Im wrong but isnt every years flu a different type of flu?
I mean thats why flu jabs should be done every year right?
Just another scare tactic to sell more flu shots I think.
This is getting old now.

All it takes is ONE to infect millions!

Scare tactic? Maybe, but regardless, I'm not getting vaccinated period...
