Wow, I didn't know about this. I just got my flu shot last week too. I wonder if it will protect me from this new strain?

I started this thread not to scare everyone, but for us to be aware of the situation. If we can prepare ourselves with information, we can confront the problem and deal with it effectively.

The last thing we would need is panic.



In the article it states there are many strains of the flu. And these strains are constantly mutating. So, if you have received a flu shot as I have, this may not protect you from this flu.

So far it is a single source with no evidence of a mutation that can pass from human to human = no pandemic

Biggest load of political scare tactics I've seen since the SARS and avian.

different strains of flu kill millions every year .........So why isn't everyone afraid of the average flu that goes around and kills people all the time. Are we that full of it and so immuned from being sick that we panic because the news papers know how to write a good head line?

Think of the timing of this "alert" and compare it to the timing of the other "alerts" . Come on guys surely your not falling for this....

Have a look at the footage of doctors treating patients in mexico. Are they wearing gloves and masks?

Nobody makes money from a cure, it's all in the research and prevention. They don't want to find a cure for anything (although I believe it's sitting there in a lab somewhere ) There's no money in it.................and yes I believe they are that evil!!!!

Think about it who really dies when a pandemic breaks out? we may lose a few but it's those in third world countries eating the food that we should have when the depression of the world becomes really bad. <------tongue in cheek.

Until what's all over? Nothing has happened.!!:-5 Eight cases were reported in Queensland and every one of them turned out to be another sickness.

Lets face it every single generation gets this stupid " YOU"RE ALL GONNA DIE" crap . I've actually had to stop the kids watching hte news because they are worried. when was the last time people died from flu? The spanish? And that's only becuase there were no drugs and starvation to boot . No body does well when they are half starved. that's why they died.

Yep I have to agree with ya there Fuzz, lets look at..... ooo...... let's say PMS (Premenstral Sydrome) every woman has likely experienced some degree of PMS yet our mothers, their mothers, and their mothers mothers never gave it much thought until this new generation because WE HAVE A PILL FOR IT NOW and everybody has PMS Oh My Bloody Gawd!

I remember a woman who was an absolute bitch one day at a friends house . We were all looking at each other and then her husband turned to us and said. "You know, she was never like this until she found out about PMS." ......I pissed myself laughing. You know?

copied from one of our local news sources. Illinois

“The problem is, nobody has ever seen this,” he said. “It’s a combination of genetic material from birds and from pigs and from humans that, then, all came together in pigs and now have been transferred to humans.”

Viruses mutate all the time, “that’s why every year we come out with a new flu vaccination, because we try to predict which ones we’re going to see and, then occasionally, we get this where we get a recombination and we have something that nobody has ever seen and it spreads fast.”

Bacon expects the virus to eventually reach most communities across the country.

“We truly hope we can contain it at this outbreak level,” he said. “That being said, as early as this is and as rapidly as the numbers are increasing, I think we’re all in the public health community and the health-care community concerned that it could pretty quickly expand beyond that.

“It’s going to really be a challenge for all us, at the international level all the way to each one of us individually, to defeat this thing. It’s going to be a race.”

Stephanie Seaworth, assistant administrator of the Boone County Health Department, said the department is on heightened surveillance and urging clinics to test people with flulike symptoms for the disease.

Ellen Genrich, the department’s health education and community outreach coordinator, said officials are reminding callers that the virus cannot be spread by eating or preparing pork, which is one of the most frequently asked questions.

Don’t be so fast to dismiss this, SARS was very serious, but because thankfully the WHO acted quickly and got it under control stopping it from being a major incident does not mean that it was not a real threat at the time.

True however that once again the media loves this stuff and do not get sucked into the fear factor. Last night on the BBC you would think the world was coming to an end and millions and millions were going to die. They are so irresponsible.

Remember the simple things your mom taught you:

1. Wash your hands

2. Keep your hands away from your mouth and eyes.

3. Cover your mouth when you cough.

4. Sneeze into a tissue, then get rid of it.

I do, but you know what?? Don’t think for one second that everyone else does.

I was out last Friday night in a local bar, and as one does, went to the toilets. I noticed during my time in the washroom that only about half of the other men that came in and out while I was in there bothered to wash their hands on the way out.

Stupidity. From today's "Daily Telegraph":

"Thousands of British holidaymakers are to be repatriated from Mexico after leading travel operators announced they were cancelling all flights to the country because of the swine flu outbreak.



Travel giant TUI, which owns Thomson and First Choice holidays, said it was suspending its services to the resort of Cancun and would begin flying back Britons currently in the country later today. "

This applies to people who *want* to return early.



So, when they're back, do they straight away mingle with the general popupation of the UK, or spend 10 days or so in quarantine?? Now, let me guess.....

If this really *was* very deadly, then this would be most unhelpful.

gosh weren't we all taught this as children????? Sadly and please I mean no offense but sadly these pandemic scares come from countries that often don't even use toilet paper, don't have the hygeine standards we do etc and they come to cultures that do and these bugs spread and we think we are all going to die. It's a shame it gets pushed to panic levels.

People are being told to - or, as far as I know, being advised to - leave Mexico, or only go there if really necessary. This is shortly going to be rather shallow advice, since global travel has spread this virus far more quickly than it would have spread without.

What's going to happen in Mexico, & what are they going to do to the people? Not much, I suspect. It's not just Mexico, now - it's spread about a bit! Too late to limit the spread of this to one place.

On the news just now - "the virus hasn't killed anyone else because it's weakened as it's spread over a larger area" - claptrap.

No idea what the final effects will be, though.

Totally agree that the virus has not had time to reduce its virulence and distance is not important when we fly it round the world for free.

It does appear that, whilst contagious, it is not deadly when treated in a modern hospital.

I prefer to refer to it as the pig flu. It may not be as cool on a t-shirt or bumper sticker as some of the other names, but... it's simple and unpretentious.

For those unfamiliar with swine flu check out the wikipedia page: Swine Flu.

So far there have been cases reported in California, Kansas, New York, Ohio, Texas, Indiana, British Columbia Canada and Mexico.

On the news, I saw someone from some US gov't department saying how much they were doing to reassure people that pork is safe to eat, and furtthermore how much they were doing to ensure that "trading partners" (export markets?) were aware that US exports were quite alright, and it would not be justifiable to restrict them, so they'd better bloody well not - all that sort of thing.

I discovered that there is a case reported in Chicago. Now that is far to close to home for me. I work with the publc everyday. Some come off the Greyhound bus and are coming out of Mexico. I am starting to get paranoid and am using alot of hand sanitizer as I have to be face to face with them and handle their money.

Yuck! Yes, good to get the hand sanitier though. My daughter also works with the public & so does hubs....wash your hands constantly you two....don't need this again. We already had a bout with the flu back in February and it took a toll on us.

There is a story coming out of Texas where a toddler has died from it, but the great authorities can't figure out if the baby was of US or Mexican descent. How brill!:rolleyes:

2 confirmed cases here in Calgary. Might I offer up a small reality check here.....

these are confirmed cases... not deaths, it means these people have gone to the Dr. and have been likely treated and should survive.

I really hope everybody understands when they say "cases" they don't mean "deaths".

so currently here in my fair city is the persentage of our population with confirmed swine flu.....000002%

I think the real worry should come when we see these as confirmed deaths.

I am not playing this down to be a jerk, but if there is an influenza outbreak we generally take the usual precautions, wash your hands, be cognisent of your surroundings when in the public, cover your mouth when you cough and if you start to feel poorly call your doctor. If you feel poorly for a long time call your doctor.
