It Was Bird Flu A Few Years Ago - Now It's Swine Flu. When Will The B.S. Stop?
Eager to incite panic and expand the Messiah's already bloated ego, the U.S. government has declared a "swine flu public health emergency". Apparently, some people in Mexico have died from the flu - or at least that is the official proganda line being disseminated these days - and all of us in America should be in a panic.
Almost four years ago, the bird flu was the fashionable pandemic on its way to America's shores. Now it's the swine flu. Same bullshit, different animal.
So, let's see what we are dealing with.
The latest case was a 35-year-old woman from California who was hospitalized for the flu but had recovered fully.
New York City Health officials reported today that at least eight students at a private high school had "probable" swine flu.
Ok. Still waiting to hear about the public health emergency.
About 200 of the 2,700 students attending St. Francis Preparatory High School in the Queens borough of the city missed school earlier in the week due to fever, sore throats and other flu-like symptoms, prompting school officials to notify the health department. Investigators interviewed more than 100 students and their family members. All had mild symptoms and none were hospitalized.
Dr. Richard Besser, acting director of the CDC, noted that, compared to cases in Mexico,
“what we’re seeing in this country is mild disease,”
and that the U.S. cases would not have been detected without increased surveillance.
Ahhhh, maybe we are now onto something.
The U.S. will begin screening travelers at the nation’s borders and isolating people who are actively ill with suspected influenza, the director of Homeland Security said today. No travel restrictions are issued currently, but that could change, she said.
Janet Napolitano said she’d ordered border officials to start passive surveillance protocols to screen people at U.S. borders. asking "Are you sick? Have you been sick?"
Isolating people with the flu? People with AIDS are not isolated, but the flu will get you quarantined?
