    Its just a new virus introduced by some punks to create trouble. The situation is worst in India.

    The virus is real and despite the obvious interest and pressure from pharmaceutical companies, the threat is very real, like the numbers of young healthy people recurring the emergencies prove.

    It´s not the end of the world but is more then a seasonal flu, and people in the risk groups and in general should pay more attention to it, without the drama and without the conspiracy theories.

    control through fear.

    Flu always kills but you don't normally get a death tally, most deaths are people with underlying health issues, end.

    Remember bird flu btw? most have forgotten that we were all going to die from that in the media frenzy not so long ago.

    And then there was the black death which surfaced in India in the late 90's, we were all doomed then too, it was apparently irrelevant that it was treatable with anti-biotic...

    Media are the firestarters and governments come along with knee jerk reactions to win votes, you are being used.

    At least one million deaths occur every year due to malaria.

    do we pay attention to that?

    ask yourself why not.

    No we don´t. Neither we pay attention to tuberculosis, famine, sub-nutrition, and a bunch of diseases that kill by the thousands.
    We don't because it doesnt happen in our doorstep, to our friends or to anyone we know, and were it happens there is no money to gain from treat it.

    I´m aware of the hypocrisy of it and aware of the pharmaceutical agenda and their true motivations, but all that doesn't make the flu , swine or not, go away.

    Is the pandemic alert out of proportion? Maybe, we will see and the end of Winter, but until then people should not undermine the potential of this disease.
    Just have common sense, that will be enough.

    Sure we do, but there isn't a cheap, easily manufactured and widely available vaccine for malaria. Hopefully there will be one in the not too distant future. It's a little trickier than an influenza vaccine, to put it mildly, so prevention (nets and IRS) and treatment are the only options for now.

    If you want to help out with research, go to malariacontrol.net, download BOINC software, and let it run on your PCs.

    We've had a few cases of h1n1 reported around here and a middle aged guy died from it recently. The flu season doesn't get really bad here until late December.

    I got the regular flu last year and it was the worst I've ever had. I lost 15 pounds and missed almost two weeks of work. I thought it was going to kill me and I'm in relatively good shape.

    Actually it ins't.
    H1N1 has hit a few times before.
    One of the major reasons older people aren't getting is is that they got it when they were younger.

    Interesting read. Corporate news and radio is keeping this hush. Iv been reading up on the Ukraine situation. They have canceled all public gatherings and election due to a new strain of flu that mutated or was released. This is the net and don't believe everything but I think this is worth reading to spread the word. Is anyone from this country?


    http://www.zerohedge.com/article/deadly-flu-spreads-across-ukraine?
    From the article
    "Regardless, there has been almost zero (NOTHING. NADA. SILENCE.) mention of the Ukraine epidemic in the mainstream media, a fact which I find both astonishing and profoundly disturbing. There is apparently collusion at the highest levels of government and media to suppress this information. There are now 1.3 million infected in Ukraine, and over 75,000 hospitalized -- IN FOURTEEN DAYS. This is very serious! Based on previous clinical data we can expect over 8,000 to be dead or soon to be dead. Forward projection of the epidemic is difficult because the clinical attack rate is unknown -- but myself and my associates remain concerned it may be quite high. Deaths globally may be in the millions. Let's hope this is not the case."

    H1N-what?

    I think that should give you a good idea of the situation in New Zealand.

    I caught it from a friends child a few months back, it was no worse than any flu I have had before... sure it affects some people more than others, but in the words of Chuck D "Don't believe the hype!".

    Maddox even has a page on it lol :D

    I always thought it was lots of miles off the East coast of Aus?
