Swine Flu Outbreak

New mixture of viruses in flu never seen before
* Eight cases found in California and Texas
* Close to 1000 suspected cases
* Risk of Pandemic

Quote:
- A strain of flu never seen before has killed as many as 61 people in Mexico and has spread into the United States, where eight people have been infected but recovered, health officials said on friday.

Mexico's government said at least 16 people have died of the disease in central Mexico and that it may also have been responsible for 45 other deaths. The World Health Organization said tests showed the virus in 12 of the Mexican patients had the same genetic structure as a new strain of swine flu, designated H1N1, seen in eight people in California and Texas. [nLO274836]

Because there is clearly human-to-human spread of the new virus, raising fears of a major outbreak, Mexico's government canceled classes for millions of children in its sprawling capital city and surrounding areas.

How long until gsvol or Hannity suggests that the Mexican government is doing this intentionally? Probably in conjunction with the Muslim pirates of Somalia.

Probably about the same amount of time it will take for gs to take up all the bandwidth on this server.

He's going to be criticized for not acting to close the border with Mexico sooner, if this does become a pandemic.

I think it's just another disease scare.

However, we must act on it.

That wouldn't be Obama's fault. Bush and Clinton didn't do much in the previous 16 years, either.

Remember the Newcastle scare????
How many lies were accepted by the public back then??
Clue one, a whole damned bunch of them, nearly as many as the Serbian genocide hoax.

They are all just "scares" until they aren't... And then people ask how we didn't see it coming.

Before they do, I bet Obama apologizes to Mexico for the US not having done enough to control the supply of flu in the world.

Obama’s Visit
The first case was seen in Mexico on April 13. The outbreak coincided with the President Barack Obama’s trip to Mexico City on April 16. Obama was received at Mexico’s anthropology museum in Mexico City by Felipe Solis, a distinguished archeologist who died the following day from symptoms similar to flu, Reforma newspaper reported. The newspaper didn’t confirm if Solis had swine flu or not.

I bet if your car were as fast as your hyperbole, you could catch some of those ambulances you've been chasing.
