The number of confirmed cases of swine flu in the U.S. has risen to 91, and a 23-month-old boy from Mexico became the first to die from the virus in an American hospital in Huston Texas. The New York Times article provides more details.
The boy had underlying health problems when he traveled to the Texas border town of Brownsville to visit relatives. Hospital officials did not specify what underlying health issues the boy had before arriving in the U.S. but they did say the cause of death was pneumonia caused by a variant of H1N1 swine flu. This begs the question, what does “varant” mean?
Meanwhile, a member of the World Health Organisation (WHO) has dismissed claims that more than 150 people have died from swine flu. Why is our own government is pushing us toward Martial Law when the WHO is saying it has officially recorded only seven deaths around the world? This thing is being hyped around the world for political purposes.
Contrary to wide-spread initial reports that the swine flu included bird, pig and human flu strains, doctors are now saying that the flu is solely made up from 2 strains of pig flu. What is going on there? Are we talking about two different strains here, at this point we don’t know.
And while earlier reports put the number of confirmed cases in Mexico well above 100, the World Health Organization (WHO) is now giving the following update, revising the number of cases in Mexico sharply downwards:
As of 18:00 GMT, 29 April 2009, nine countries have officially reported 148 cases of swine influenza A/H1N1 infection. The United States Government has reported 91 laboratory confirmed human cases, with one death. Mexico has reported 26 confirmed human cases of infection including seven deaths.
This raises serious question about what has been previously reports in the news media. For the sake of argument, let just assume the repots of 2000 people sick is correct and think about about what that really means. Millions of people in Mexico live in crushing poverty, poor health and with poor sanitary conditions. Still, the 2,000 “cases” equals less than 0.005% of the population. 60 deaths (which is much higher than offiical WHO reported number) equals 0.0003% of the population. A
Moreover, of the few deaths, no one has mentioned who these casualties are. Are they elderly or infirm people who could just as easily be killed by the common cold or like you boy in Huston they could have had “other” preesisting medical conditions.
There’s no need to be frightened by swine flu virus. It’s nothing but a media scare tactic promulgated and financed by Big Pharma so as to introduce a national flu vaccine program and thus a new swine flu vaccine (and that vaccine is the only thing we really need to to fear). God made your defense (immune) system to ward off foreign invaders. Just focus on keeping your so-called immune system healthy, fortified, and boosted and you’ll be all right!
