I think it is worth concern, but not panic. Of course, people in my position "have" tp prepare, because "if" something happens we are expected to be ready. So, we plan. I attended a meeting today with several regional EMS Directors and Phelps County Public Health. Later this week meet with Pulaski County Public Health and Fort staff. I think our President and Governor are performing correctly at this point.

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama voiced hope Friday that the swine flu virus will run its course "like ordinary flus" as officials reported more than two dozen new cases and scores more schools shut down.
The government issued new guidance for schools with confirmed cases, saying they should close for at least 14 days because children can be contagious for seven to 10 days from when they get sick. That means parents can expect to have children at home for longer than previously thought.
The Education Department said that more than 400 schools had closed, affecting about 245,000 children in 18 states. That was about 100 more schools reported closed than reported on Thursday.
Major U.S. airlines, meanwhile, announced plans to curtail flights into flu-ravaged Mexico.

I dont want to sound like a conspiricy theorist..Im not..But everytime the government and media scare us theres an under lying more serious thing going on that really matters but they dont want us to know. JMO.
I am wondering as well why after almost 100 years and millions of pig farms later why this so called flu suddenly makes a breakthrough to our society again. I have never in my life heard of the Bird flu , Swine Flu, or west nile virus until the last few years. though all are old virus's why did they come out of hiding all of a sudden? sounds like BS to me. I think our government is up to no good.

topgun, I often wonder if these virus's are brought on by the massive increase in world population.  In many third world countries, half the population is under age 25.  Mexico City has 20 million people!  Also, I believe the world population has doubled since the mid 60s.  I've been told that deer seem to develop mysterious disease when they over populate an area.

I'm no medical specialist or conspiracy nut either necessarily.  The latter claim being highly subjective of course.

What I find peculiar about this situation is the lack of a ground zero hog.  The Avian flu caused wide spread slaughter of known carrier birds in Asia.  It was all over the news at the time.  We have been told it maay have come from a specific operation in Mexico, but no confirmation and no news - especially video - of carrier (or potential carrier) erradication.

Another interesting part is the time of year it presented.  Flu bugs normally die out as the temperature rises if I am not mistaken.

None of the above means anything inparticular, but it makes my brain think twice.  Hopefully this is just a passing thing.  And of course hopefully it isn't a cover for something more dangerous or sinister.

There are quite a few folks (not just tin foilers) that believe the hype is being used to promote and push health care reform.  Anything is possible.
"In order to be a leader of men, a man has to receive an education in his own country, among his own people, and to grow up in surroundings steeped with the traditions and psychology of his countrymen.  Not only did Western education not fulfill that condition, but it tended to wean a young man from the traditions and customs of his country."

OTTAWA – Pigs on a Canadian farm have been infected with the new swine flu virus — apparently by a farm worker back from Mexico — and are under quarantine, officials said Saturday. It is the first known case of pigs having the virus.
But officials quickly urged caution. Swine flu regularly causes outbreaks in pigs, and the pigs do not pose a food safety risk, Dr. Brian Evans, executive vice president with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, told a news conference.
The officials said the pigs in the province of Alberta were thought to be infected by a Canadian farm worker who recently visited Mexico and got sick after returning to Canada.

If we say that pigs with flu that gets transmitted to humans have "swine flu" do we say that humans, based on the scientific name "homo sapiens," transmit "sapien flu" to pigs?

MEXICO CITY – Mexico reported three new deaths from the swine flu epidemic Saturday and urged citizens not to let their guard down against a virus that has killed 19 in people in Mexico and is spreading across Asia and Europe.
Health Secretary Jose Angel Cordova said Mexico's confirmed swine flu cases jumped to 473, including the 19 deaths. The previous death toll in Mexico was 16. A Mexican toddler also died in Texas days ago, for a worldwide total of 20.

U.S. President Barack Obama also urged caution Saturday.
"This is a new strain of the flu virus, and because we haven't developed an immunity to it, it has more potential to cause us harm," Obama said. Later, he spoke with Mexican President Felipe Calderon for about 20 minutes to share information.
The global caseload was nearing 800 and growing — the vast majority in Mexico, the U.S. and Canada. Costa Rica reported its first confirmed swine flu case — the first in Latin America outside Mexico. The only other fatality involved a Mexican toddler who died while in Texas.
Swine flu cases have been confirmed in 18 countries so far — including Europe, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region — and experts believe the actual spread is much wider.
Scientists warn that the virus could mutate into a much deadlier form.

MEXICO CITY – Swine flu extended its reach through Europe and Latin America, with at least five countries reporting new cases on Sunday. Health experts were investigating a case of the virus jumping from a person to pigs, trying to determine if the disease was reaching a new stage.
Hong Kong kept 350 people under quarantine in a hotel as a precaution even though no new swine flu infections appeared in Asia, and Egypt's attempt to kill all pigs as a precaution against the disease prompted pig owners to clash with police who were helping to seize their animals for slaughter.
So far the swine flu epidemic has killed 19 in people in Mexico and one toddler in the U.S. and has spread to 18 countries worldwide — but experts believe the actual spread is much wider.
Mexico's health secretary said 11 people were suspected to have died from the virus in the previous 24 hours. The alarming news came after the epidemic's toll in Mexico appeared to have been leveling off.

MEXICO CITY – The swine flu epidemic spread deeper into the United States, Europe and Latin America — and in Canada, back to pigs — even as Mexico's health chief hinted Sunday it may soon be time to reopen businesses and schools in the nation where the outbreak likely began.
The virus spread to Colombia in the first confirmed case in South America, worrisome because flu season is about to begin in the Southern Hemisphere. More cases were confirmed in Europe and North America; the World Health Organization said at least 787 people have been sickened worldwide.
Dr. Richard Besser, acting chief of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said swine flu is spreading just as easily as regular winter flu, with 226 confirmed cases in 30 U.S. states.

Good grief! Apparently this means the Islamic world will be at least partially protected from the swine flu outbreak if (and this is a big if) the pigs are a disease reservoir, as rats were during the Black Death and various wild animals are still today in modern rabies and plague outbreaks.

So far that doesn't appear to be the case, however, since the disease is primarily being transmitted human-to-human with no obvious swine involvement in the transmission process.

SAO PAULO – The Southern Hemisphere has been mostly spared in the swine flu epidemic. That could change when winter starts in coming weeks with no vaccine in place, leaving half the planet out in the cold.
So far, the most affected nations have been in North America and Europe, which are heading into summer. But flu is spread more easily in the winter, and it's already fall down south. Experts fear public health systems could be overwhelmed — especially if swine flu and regular flu collide in major urban populations.
"You have this risk of an additional virus that could essentially cause two outbreaks at once," Dr. Jon Andrus said at the Pan American Health Organization's headquarters in Washington.
There's also a chance that the two flus could collide and mutate into a new strain that is more contagious and dangerous.
"We have a concern there might be some sort of reassortment and that's something we'll be paying special attention to," World Health Organization spokesman Dick Thompson said in Geneva.
Flu spreads more readily during the winter because people congregate indoors as the weather gets colder, increasing the opportunity for the virus to hop from person to person, said Raina MacIntyre, public health director at the University of New South Wales in Australia. Colder temperatures also may make it easier for the virus to infect people.
"The highest peaks of influenza activity occur in winter," MacIntyre said. "For us in the Southern Hemisphere, it's particularly concerning."

WASHINGTON – The Navy canceled the deployment of a San Diego-based ship and ordered its crew to be treated with anti-viral drugs after a crew member's illness was confirmed as swine flu.
Navy spokesman Lt. Sean Robertson said Tuesday there also were about 50 suspected cases of the virus from crew members on board the USS Dubuque. He said the crew member with the virus and those suspected of being ill from it have completed treatment with the anti-viral drug Tamiflu and are recovering.
Robertson said the ship's deployment was canceled out of an "abundance of caution." The ship was scheduled to leave June 1 on a humanitarian mission to the South Pacific for assistance on projects such as medical and construction operations.
The Navy was exploring options to still meet its commitments, Robertson said.

But the friends and relatives whose cars lined the quiet street in front of her home in a quiet subdivision Tuesday instead were mourning her, the first American with swine flu to die.

MEXICO CITY – Bird flu kills more than 60 percent of its human victims, but doesn't easily pass from person to person. Swine flu can be spread with a sneeze or handshake, but kills only a small fraction of the people it infects.
So what happens if they mix?
This is the scenario that has some scientists worried: The two viruses meet — possibly in Asia, where bird flu is endemic — and combine into a new bug that is both highly contagious and lethal and can spread around the world.

SEATTLE – A Washington state man with underlying heart conditions became the third person infected with swine flu to die in the U.S., health officials said Saturday, while Costa Rica reported the first swine flu death outside North America.
Japanese authorities, meanwhile, scrambled to limit contact with their country's first cases, and Australia and Norway joined the list of nations with confirmed cases of swine flu.
A Snohomish County man in his 30s died on Thursday from what appeared to be complications from swine flu, the state Department of Health said in a statement. The man had underlying heart conditions and viral pneumonia at the time of his death, but swine flu was considered a factor in his death, the statement said.                 The man, who was not identified, reportedly began showing sympto

MONDAY, May 11 (HealthDay News)  -- Confirmed cases of H1N1 swine  flu in the United States climbed to more than 2,500 by Monday, and the  U.S. now surpasses Mexico as the country most affected by the outbreak,  according to World Health Organization figures.
The number of deaths in the United States linked to the illness rose to  three over the weekend, with health officials in Washington state  reporting late Saturday that an unidentified man in his 30s had succumbed  to the infection.
In a state Department of Health news release, officials said the man,  who had an underlying heart condition, died last week with what appeared  to be complications from the swine flu, the Associated Press  reported.
The man's death came after two prior fatal U.S. cases of swine flu: a  33-year-old woman in Texas, and a Mexican toddler who had been treated at  a Texas hospital. Both of those individuals also had chronic underlying  medical conditions.
The swine flu count in the United States now stands at 2,532 confirmed  cases in 44 states, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention  said on Sunday. On Saturday, CDC officials said those numbers included 104  hospitalizations.  The vast majority of cases are mild, however.

NEW YORK – New York City has closed three schools in response to a swine flu outbreak that has left an assistant principal in critical condition and sent hundreds of kids home with flu symptoms, in a flare-up of the virus that sent shock waves through the world last month.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that four students and the assistant principal have documented cases of swine flu at a Queens middle school. More than 50 students have gone home sick with flulike symptoms at the school, he said. At another middle school in Queens, 241 students were absent Thursday. Dozens more were sick at an elementary school.
