Please keep chat and one-liners to a minimum. This thread is intended to be a one-stop-shop for all of todays NEWS and info related to the Mexican Swine Flu.
To make it faster for everyone to catch up on the actual NEWS, PLEASE PLEASE minimize chat, jokes, bashing the administration, soapboxes, and so forth. These live threads can become useless monster threads if everyone throws in their one-liners, and we all have 'em! So let's try to keep this thread useful for the latest NEWS.
Thank you all in advance.
I live in the same area and my daughter just had the same flu. The symptoms are like any other flu that I have seen except for one thing, her sore throat was so bad she couldn't swallow food for 3 days and had trouble with water. Refused to go see a doc. I think it was regular flu, she is recovering now and almost back to normal.
Funnily enough, I disinfected my office on Friday as well..
If you listened to the news conference closely the following was said and is a headline on Drudge right now - it is the line of the day:
NAPOLITANO SAYS USA SHOULD SHOULD PREPARE FOR NEW FLU OUTBREAK SOON EVEN IF THIS ONE FIZZLES OUT...
These democrats can’t take a stand on anything. A couple hundred people in an enclosed airplane from Mexico is a recipe for spreading the disease. A travel advisory is a no-brainer.
She is a certified putz ...
I want to throw something at TV when I see her. Or tear up the paper. Grrr ...
LOL..what is that suppose to mean? That they are going to milk it for everything they can?
I think it was regular flu, she is recovering now and almost back to normal.
IF a person could really tell the difference they wouldn’t need all the extensive testing. Good news is..if it was a mild form of this Mexican Swine Flu...she is immunized! lol
To all my fellow freepers, if I get this and die, I’ll let you all be the first to know! ;)
no, that’s not what it means.
Smart move. Your baby’s health is more important than some hurt feelings.
What is Johnson taking that he is living so long?
With the information that folks returning from Mexico are carrying the virus back to other countries I think you made a wise choice. Especially with a baby in the house!
Didn’t someone say “wisdom is the better part of valor”.
That is why talkradio will have A BIG role in this come tomorrow. If this turns out to be a bio terror attack which has its origins from the Middle East, it would not be suprising.
interesting article, but crackpot commentary follows as expected at HuffPo.
Lots of cruise ships stop in Cozumel. We know how quickly disease can spread on a ship. I think the lease we can do is issue a travel advisory as a precaution until we know more.
AZT I believe. I think it's what most people take that have HIV. There are some strains of HIV that have become resistant to AZT and most other anti-virals.
Yeah...and go to any rural area with large mex...immigrant populations and you find that.
Lot of absentee landlords hire Mexican farm managers and others.
You can find pigs, goats, ducks and chickens all living together right next to the family quarters.
So what did she mean in your opinion. I was at the grocery store.
