Comment: The strain in Mexico is reported as being the same in the U.S. One of two things is true - either the Mexicans are lying about the severity of the crisis, or deaths in the U.S. are being covered up. The fact that this is all unfolding right on the border with Texas is obviously of prime importance because we are based here.

I work as a resident doctor in one of the biggest hospitals in Mexico City and sadly, the situation is far from “under control”. As a doctor, I realise that the media does not report the truth. Authorities distributed vaccines among all the medical personnel with no results, because two of my partners who worked in this hospital (interns) were killed by this new virus in less than six days even though they were vaccinated as all of us were. The official number of deaths is 20, nevertheless, the true number of victims are more than 200. I understand that we must avoid to panic, but telling the truth it might be better now to prevent and avoid more deaths.

Something is not right here. Please research this information.

that was sent yesterday, today another Dr backs up this view, also emailing the BBC :

"I'm a specialist doctor in respiratory diseases and intensive care at the Mexican National Institute of Health. There is a severe emergency over the swine flu here. More and more patients are being admitted to the intensive care unit. Despite the heroic efforts of all staff (doctors, nurses, specialists, etc) patients continue to inevitably die. The truth is that anti-viral treatments and vaccines are not expected to have any effect, even at high doses. It is a great fear among the staff. The infection risk is very high among the doctors and health staff.

There is a sense of chaos in the other hospitals and we do not know what to do. Staff are starting to leave and many are opting to retire or apply for holidays. The truth is that mortality is even higher than what is being reported by the authorities, at least in the hospital where I work it. It is killing three to four patients daily, and it has been going on for more than three weeks. It is a shame and there is great fear here. Increasingly younger patients aged 20 to 30 years are dying before our helpless eyes and there is great sadness among health professionals here."

Hmm... Just got into this flu thing yesterday... Man what the heck is going on...

I wonder if the hospitals in the US are just not reporting deaths because they were told not to, because people are apparently dying left & right in Mexico.

I know the conditions as far as sanitation goes are a lot worse in Mexico, but there hasn't been 1 reported death in the US yet... I guess that will happen eventually, or it already has and hasn't been reported on.

It seems the PTB aka media in the US always have a way of either down-playing or elevating the actual events,info,or news depending on the political climate and mood of the 8-ball on any given day.

I've been thinking about this: it would be possible "they" are trying to hell to come up with some sort of emergency relief or "vaccine" (no f-ing way!) to present to the American public prior to admitting that there truly is a really explosive situation going on.

Otherwise,there would be those starting to think every sniffle was THE FLU and the medical-care facilities,hosptals,hotlines,and such would be overun and honestly that serves no good purpose because IF they are genuinely concerned (note that big if...) I'd think they'd be trying to contain and control everything to do with the virus to insure the best possible outcome of the "event" with the least number of losses.
A panic would be yet another problem to deal with at this point.

I think that the next 48 hours or so will be crucial to the "truth" and the cause and resulting effects...I'm not a patient person but there just isn't enough clear info out there yet to start making good decisions other than to take precautions and be smart!

I am wondering if the reason we heard nothing at first is because this thing starts out mild and then mutates into something more deadly. This may be the reason that nothing was done here three weeks ago when it first started in Mexico.

It may be that it will get much worse here within the next couple of weeks.

Remember people,no one will take better care for you than yourself..

Use precautions,especialy in the southern states and around known hotspots..Wash hands often along with your face..DO NOT touch public things like door handles,door nobs,shopping carts,exct. without either gloves or sanitizing hands directly afterwards..Use of the waterless hand sanitizer is recomended..

If this does infact take the big # on to us,god help us all...cleanliness is the key..treat everything as if it was infected..

I will be waiting to see witch direction this goes..and taking my vitamin c..

There is no way this thing mutated. It is a combination of 3 different viruses ( avian, human, and swine) also the type of virus comes from several different geographic areas ( SE asia, europe, ect). This is not a natural virus.
