IIRC, I first heard of HIV in late 78 or early 79.

Like I said before its tough to triangulate a travel advisory! So it takes a little longer for her to find someone else to blame for it not being out on time.

If I’ve understood it correctly, during the 1918 Spanish flu, people who were younger and had the healthiest immune systems, actually suffered the greatest mortality.

It was the devastating hyper-response of robust immune systems in overdrive that hastened death in this demographic. So, if this is correct, in some pandemics, and perhaps in this one, the weaker might actually fare better.

I’ve been told the reason for that in mexico was because your animals get stolen if you don’t. In the old days they’d keep their donkey in their front room at night.

There’s so much we take for granted in america.

Sometimes the Cozumel cruise ship runs are killed off and the ships are re-routed to Key West.

I am trying to find that out now,but no luck so far.

The kids at St Francis Prep have recovered. Several of those testing for swine flu were shooting hoops yesterday. I find this all very confusing. But if this were to be proven as bio terrorism I will not be surprised. Four or five different viruses in one is, at least to a medical illiterate like me, very strange.

I just disinfected our sets of keys. I do that from time to time but will probably start doing it more often.

It's starting to sound like a manufactured crisis.

It wasn’t an instruction. It was a request. A nicely worded, logical one, IMO.

Arthur Ashe was another celebrity who tested positive for HIV in 1988, following blood transfusions. Ashe kept his diagnosis quiet until the year before his death in 1993.

I remember my son was just a newborn and the news was reporting every night on the Americans taken hostage by the Iranians, mass murder/suicide in Guyana, and Aids. I was thinking what a horrible time to be bringing a new baby into the world.

4 cases of swine flu confirmed in Nova Scotia, 2 in B.C.

"Nova Scotia and British Columbia have confirmed cases of swine flu, while new cases of the infection have been found in New York City, as health officials around the world test for a virus linked to a more serious outbreak in Mexico.

Nova Scotia's chief public health officer, Dr. Robert Strang, said Sunday the National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg confirmed late Saturday that four young people in the province are recovering from "relatively mild" cases of the disease.

Strang said the four are between the ages of 12 and 18 and all attend a private school in the Windsor area of Nova Scotia.

They had been part of a group of students who were on a school trip to Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula in early April, Dr. Gaynor Watson-Creed, medical officer of health for Capital Health, told reporters

B.C.'s Centre for Disease Control on Sunday confirmed cases of swine flu involving two people from the province who recently returned from Mexico. "................

I heard a dr on TV say that it might help if you’e had a shot and it wouldn’t hurt to get one if you didn’t before.
