The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country.

Bird flu strain in China 'passed between humans'

Researchers have reported the first case of human-to-human transmission of the new strain of bird flu that has emerged in China.



The British Medical Journal said a 32-year-old woman was infected after caring for her father. Both later died.

Until now there had been no evidence of anyone catching the H7N9 virus other than after direct contact with birds.

But experts stressed it does not mean the virus has developed the ability to spread easily between humans.

By 30 June there had been 133 cases of H7N9 bird flu reported in eastern China and 43 deaths.

Most people had visited live poultry markets or had close contact with live poultry in the week or two before they became ill.

Intensive care
 
Yet researchers found that the 32-year-old woman had become infected in March after caring for her 60-year-old father in hospital.

Unlike her father - who had visited a poultry market in the week before falling ill - she had no known exposure to live poultry but fell ill six days after her last contact with him.

Both died in intensive care of multiple organ failure.

Tests on the virus taken from both patients showed the strains were almost genetically identical, which supports the theory that the daughter was infected directly from her father rather than another source.

Public health officials tested 43 close contacts of the patients but all tested negative for H7N9, suggesting the ability of the virus to spread was limited.

The researchers said that while there was no evidence to suggest the virus had gained the ability to spread from person to person efficiently, this was the first case of a "probable transmission" from human to human.

'Strong warning sign'
 
"Our findings reinforce that the novel virus possesses the potential for pandemic spread," they concluded.

Dr James Rudge, of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said that limited transmission between humans is not surprising and has been seen before in other bird flu viruses, such as H5N1.

He added: "It would be a worry if we start to see longer chains of transmission between people, when one person infects someone else, who in turn infects more people, and so on.

"And particularly if each infected case goes on to infect, on average, more than one other person, this would be a strong warning sign that we might be in the early stages of an epidemic."

An accompanying editorial in the BMJ, co-authored by Dr Rudge, concluded that while this study might not suggest that H7N9 is any closer to delivering the next pandemic, "it does provide a timely reminder of the need to remain extremely vigilant".

Nepal to cull 500,000 chickens near Kathmandu to combat major bird flu outbreak
8/16/13

Half a million chickens are to be culled in a district on the outskirts of Nepal's capital Kathmandu, as efforts to combat a major outbreak of bird flu are stepped up.

Tens of thousands of birds have already been killed in what government officials have described as one of the country's worst outbreaks of avian flu.

Now authorities in the Himalayan nation have declared the area of Bhaktapur an emergency zone.

Some 62 cases of bird flu have been recorded at 250 poultry farms in three districts in the past few weeks, officials said.

A spokesman for the Directorate of Animal Health said the government ordered the cull to be stepped up after a week-long ban imposed on the sales of poultry products failed to control the H5N1 virus.

"We could not control it (the outbreak) because the supply of poultry products continued despite the ban," Narayan Ghimire said.

"Now, the poultry farmers have joined us in our battle. We are sure we will control it."

Nepal's first outbreak of bird flu was in January 2009.

H5N1, a common strain of bird flu, has killed 377 people globally between 2003 until July 5 this year, according to the World Health Organisation.

No human deaths from bird flu have been reported in Nepal.

Japan to begin producing vaccine for H7N9 bird flu

A panel of experts at the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry will start producing a vaccine for the H7N9 strain of avian influenza, following a number of reported cases of human infections in China.

 The ministry will base the vaccine on a vaccine strain produced by the National Institute of Infectious Diseases, while seeking cooperation from vaccine makers. Production work will start within this month, at the earliest.

 The ministry will first test the vaccine on animals and then decide whether to conduct clinical trials on humans after examining the results.

 It remains unclear when production will be completed because it is difficult to make a vaccine that can provide immunity against H7 type flu viruses, according to officials at the ministry.

 No human-to-human spread of the H7N9 flu has been confirmed so far, but experts warn that genetic mutations in the virus could increase transmissions between humans and could lead to a pandemic.

Hong Kong confirms first case of H7N9 bird flu

Hong Kong has confirmed its first case of the new strain of the H7N9 bird flu in a domestic worker from Indonesia.

The worker, 36, recently travelled to Shenzhen in the mainland and came into contact with live poultry. She is in critical condition, officials say.

H7N9 has infected more than 100 people since it emerged earlier this year.

The case in Hong Kong is a sign that the virus may be spreading beyond mainland China, where most infections have been reported, and Taiwan.

The World Health Organization (WHO) had said there was "no evidence of sustained human-to-human transmission", but also described H7N9 as an "unusually dangerous virus".

At least 139 human cases of H7N9 have been confirmed, including 45 deaths, WHO says in a statement dated 6 November.

At least one case was confirmed in Taiwan in April.

Dr Ko Wing-man, Hong Kong's food and health secretary, confirmed the territory's first H7N9 case late on Monday.

He said that the patient "has a history of travelling to Shenzhen, buying a chicken, slaughtering and eating the chicken".

"She is now in critical condition at Queen Mary Hospital," he said, adding that four people in close contact with her were showing signs of flu-like symptoms.

Hong Kong is now on public health alert and has suspended the import of live chickens from some farms across the border with the mainland.

H7N9 is a type of influenza virus that normally circulates among birds and has not until recently been seen in people, the WHO says.

"There is no indication thus far that it can be transmitted between people, but both animal-to-human and human-to-human routes of transmission are being actively investigated," the organisation adds.

New Bird Flu Strain Detected in China

The strain of the virus, H10N8, was not previously known to infect humans


A woman in eastern China was confirmed to have been carrying a new strain of the bird flu, after she died of respiratory failure earlier this month, Chinese health officials announced Wednesday.
 
The 73-year-old woman, who was living in the Jiangxi Province and died on Dec. 6, was confirmed to have been carrying the H10N8 strain of the bird flu, which had previously not been known to infect humans.

Mystery illness claims 4 lives in Montgomery County

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas -- Officials with the Montgomery County Health Department are on a mission to find out more about a mystery flu-like illness.
 
So far, half of the people who have come down with it have died.
 
According to the health department, all of the patients have had flu-like and/or pneumonia like symptoms. However, all of them have tested negative for the flu.
 
There have been eight confirmed patients ranging in age from 41 to 68. Four of those patients have died.
 
Sources told WFAA sister station KHOU that two of the surviving patients are being treated at Conroe Regional Medical Center and are “very sick."
 
Those sources said doctors are being advised to use extra precaution to prevent this from spreading.
 
It’s unclear if any of the patients had pre-existing conditions.
 
The Montgomery County Health Department is waiting on more conclusive test results. Officials are hoping they will have more answers in the days to come.

MYSTERY ILLNESS KILLS ALEX JONES’ FAMILY MEMBER & SICKENED MORE OF THEM..



Is there a man-made mystery illness spreading in Texas? We post an article yesterday about a mystery illness killed 4 out of 8 patients in Montgomery county Texas! (Mystery Illness claims 4 lives in Texas) Today we found this video from Alex Jones saying one of his family member (his cousin) got sick and then died the next day! Alex Jones other family members also are sick with unknown illness.
 
No one knows what this mystery illness is.  Officials from the health department claimed they don’t want to scare the public but they have no clue what this mystery illness is but they are  taking this very seriously! How can the public not scared when an unknown illness killed 4 out 8 of the patients while the rest of the 4 are in serious condition? Why are all the doctors have no clue what it is?  We can put a robot on Mars, but we have no solution for a flu-like illness that kills?    Where did this Mystery Illness come from?
 
Be safe, be careful & be prepared!

North Texas man dies of swine flu; could be 'mystery illness' from Houston

Looking at photographs shown at her husband's funeral is so very hard for Ashley Wright.
 
"He was too young,” she said. "I should not be a widow at 30... So it's pretty devastating."
 
Dustin Wright, 30, came down with flu-like symptoms just before Thanksgiving. Ashley said he seemed to be getting better, before taking a sudden turn for the worse.
 
"Every breath was a struggle for him,” she recalled. “Every single breath. And I woke him up at 11:30, and his lips were purple and his fingers were purple, and he was like a green color -- like he was just changing colors."
 
Ashley said she insisted they go immediately to the emergency room. Dustin was admitted to Baylor Grapevine on Nov. 25, placed on life support in the ICU, and strapped into a rotating bed that helps break up fluid in the lungs from pneumonia.
 
At first, flu tests were inconclusive.
 
"The second time they checked him, he came back positive for Influenza A, Influenza B,” Wright said.
 
Dustin suffered kidney failure, which has been associated with severe cases of H1N1 Type A, or swine flu. He had no known underlying medical conditions.
 
His case has many similarities to cases in Montgomery County that puzzled doctors this week. Of eight cases in that county, four patients have died.
 
Wednesday afternoon, Montgomery County health officials said one surviving patient tested positive for H1N1. Two other surviving patients tested negative for H1N1 and results are still pending for the fourth.
 
"So what we're doing now is we're retesting those patients who tested negative from the private lab," Montgomery County Medical Director Dr. Mark Escott said. "And those samples will be sent to the state and the CDC for confirmation testing."
 
The illnesses started with flu-like symptoms, then progressed to pneumonia and, in some cases, organ failure. They all initially tested negative for the flu.
 
The mother of one of the patients who died in Montgomery County, which is north of Houston, spoke to WFAA sister station KHOU Wednesday.
 
She said her son, Dathany Reed, wasn’t feeling well on Thanksgiving and went to see doctors, who sent him home with several prescriptions. He was admitted to the hospital’s emergency room the next day and ended up on life support. Dathany’s 41st birthday came and went on November 30 while his kidneys and other organs deteriorated.
 
Family members said goodbye to the father of three on Dec. 5, a week after he went to the emergency room.
 
Dustin Wright died 10 days after being admitted to the hospital.
 
He had not gotten a flu shot. H1N1 is one of the viruses included in this year's shot.
 
"I'll never look at this the same ever again for sure,” Ashley said. “Always just get your flu shot, because you never know."
 
Adult influenza deaths do not need to be reported to the county health department, so precise numbers of North Texas deaths from influenza are unknown. Pediatric deaths, by law, must be reported.
 
Children and pregnant women were more susceptible to serious complications from H1N1 swine flu during the outbreak in 2009.
 
Dustin Wright was 30 years old. He leaves behind a wife who loves him, and a 9-year-old son he called his "best friend."

Matthew_24:4  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

This right here is more fearmongering and propaganda from the NWO MSM establishment - to get everyone to get their "flu shots". Don't take the bait!

As for Alex Jones' cousin dying and his other family members getting sick...I'm not trying to call him a liar, but nonetheless keep in mind Jones is Jesuit trained. Just saying.

BTW - one of the movie channels I have(HBO) is rolling out the 1995 movie "Outbreak" now. I remember seeing the movie back then when it came out(and saw it again last night) - it was just about that, a major "pandemic" hitting the country.

UPDATE – 6 H1N1 Deaths, 14 Critically Ill (Video)

News broke that the “mystery” illness causing deaths in Texas has now been linked to the H1N1 virus, otherwise known as the Swine Flu and according to this KHOU report, 14 more people are critically ill in the greater Houston area.
 
Via KVUE:
 
This is the same strain of H1N1 that caused a pandemic in 2009. Doctors have been seeing hundreds of new cases recently in Texas and nationwide. In fact, H1N1 is one of the viruses included in this year’s flu shot.
 
More from WFAA:
 
At least 14 people have become critically ill in Harris, Montgomery and Jefferson counties, including the four patients at Conroe Regional Medical Center.
 
It is unclear if the death of the youngest of fatalities, 30 year old Dustin Wright from Euless, which is in Northern Texas, is included in the number of deaths being reported in the other stories, but it appears he isn’t, which would bring the total of deaths technically to 7, since it is being reported that he died of H1N1.
 
[Update] It is also unclear if the recent report from Alex Jones that members of his family are sick and have died are from the same illness or not, that report can he found here from Before It’s News reporter Live Free or Die.

Like said, not trying to call Alex a liar, but he says it happened, but contrary reports cannot confirm it?

With that being said - they are really going overdrive now to push vaccinations.

Austin H1N1 ECMO Machines Maxed Out
Recombinomics Commentary 12:00
December 26, 2013

Seton officials say in the last two weeks the number of flu patients doubled from about 200 to 400 confirmed cases. And five patients with the H1N1 virus were put on a special heart-lung machine to help them breathe.

Weingarten says the procedure is complex and often requires a team of over 35 physicians, nurses, perfusionists, and respiratory therapists for each individual ECMO case, which does not include the team of lab technicians that provide critical life-saving patient information. Patients require 24-hour care while they are connected to the device, which may last a few days or several weeks.

The above comments are from media reports of a press conference at Seton Medical Center on December 24, updating the H1N 1 situation in Austin, Texas (see map), which serves central Texas, with a modern center that includes 5 EMCO machines, which require significant resources, as noted above.

EMCO machines are used for H1N1 patients who can no long breathe on their own or oxygenate their blood.  These functions are assumed by the ECMO machine in a last ditch effort to allow the patient to repair the extensive lung damage and associated complications.

The presentations cited a case in 2012 who was 8 months pregnant when infected with H1N1.  After delivery of a healthy baby by C-section the patient recovered after four weeks on an ECMO machine.  As noted above in the current outbreak, five patients were hooked up to the five machines at Seton (and a sixth machine was kept in reserve to substitute for a machine that loses functionality during treatment).  One of those five cases had been recently taken off the machine, but as noted above, the number of flu patients has doubled in the past week, raising concerns that the ECMO resource will be taxed significantly.

The five patients were between ages in the 20’s to 50’s (1 twenties, 3 forties, 1 fifties) and did not have pre-existing conditions, other than obesity.  In addition to the five adult patients on ECMO machines, one child (10M) had just come off an ECMO machine at the affiliated Dell Children’s Hospital.  In addition to the six cases cited above, two pregnant women had died, and many additional middle age and young adults were in ICUs at Austin area hospitals.

This concentration of severe H1N1 cases in the Austin area has raised concerns that the current outbreak will be more severe than 2009.  Although adult deaths are not reportable, a Texas summary of H1N1 in 2009-2010 cited 240 deaths in Texas, which was concentrated in cases <65.  The current outbreak is clearly targeting this population, raising concerns that the virus has drifted away from the 2009 version, leading to its dominance in Texas and across North America.

The early numbers in Austin raise concerns that these cases will tax health care delivery.  There have already been shortages on vaccine and Tamiflu reported in the area.  Both items are not in short supply nationwide, and the current demand in Austin has led to delays in distribution, but there a no nationwide or statewide shortages at this time.
However, the 2013 outbreak is about 3 months behind 2009, raising concerns that the current outbreak will peak in February, when conditions favor the spread of influenza.

Looks like they are working overtime to get everyone to get these vaccines. Be ye not deceived!

H1N1 Flu Virus Surfaces In Chicago

(CBS) – Nearly two dozen cases of the potentially deadly H1N1 flu virus have been confirmed in the Chicago area, CBS 2 has learned.

Finding the flu virus among patients at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood is keeping special machines working overtime right now. Seven patients at Loyola tested positive for Influenza A on Christmas Eve. Five of them had the H1N1 strain known as swine flu.

They’ve detected a sudden burst of the 2009 swine flu spreading right here in the Chicago area. Microbiologist Paul Schreckenberger says last week alone, 21 patients tested positive for Influenza A. All but one of those cases were the 2009 H1N1 swine flu.

“We don’t know why it’s emerging,” Schreckenberger says.

**Look at the buzzword "emerging"(ie-like the Emergent Church).

He says people may have gotten a false sense of security over the last couple of flu seasons, which were comparatively mild.

In Texas, the rush is on for flu shots. The very flu shots that Texans Dustin Wright, and his wife, Ashley, never received.

Dustin was hit with H1N1 flu strain, or swine flu, and he died Dec. 5.

“You don’t think it will happen to you,” Ashley says.

H1N1 is causing 80 percent of the flu infections this year in Texas. It’s the same strain that triggered a nationwide pandemic in 2009. But at that time, it was new. Now, it’s not, and the current flu vaccine offers protection.

“That really is, in terms of prevention and protection, the best method, in terms of reducing transmission or spread of influenza,” Rush University Medical Center physician Alexander Tomich says.

But remember, it takes two weeks after you get the shot to build up the anti-bodies that provide protection from the flu. So, the earlier you get it the better.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, less than half of all Americans get a flu shot each year.

Infant dies from H1N1, flu cases increasing
12/27/13

Lansing, Mich. (FREEP) A central Michigan infant has died of H1N1 as flu season begins to sweep the state and public health officials step up their calls for vaccination.

Earlier today, the Michigan Department of Community Health upgraded the level of flu activity from "local" to "regional" because flu cases have been reported throughout more areas of the state. The uptick of cases reflects a national surge as well, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"H1N1 seems to be rearing its ugly head this year," said Bob Swanson, director of the immunization division of the Michigan Department of Community Health. "We want to head that off, and the only way to do that is with the vaccine."

Last season, flu killed seven Michigan children, the highest number since 2004, when reporting such deaths became mandatory.

And public health officials said they've noticed that H1N1, one of the most widely circulated strains this year, seems to target young and middle-age adults - a demographic that might feel immune to the worst effects of flu.

Very often, flu season is most deadly for the very young, elderly people and those with underlying health conditions.

The actual number of flu cases is impossible to know. Most aren't required to be reported.

But at least 45 people had been hospitalized for suspected flu by today in eight Michigan hospitals that report data as part of the state's surveillance effort.

As holiday gatherings continue, those numbers are expected to increase.

"We really encourage people to stay home over the holidays if they're sick, but that's the time people don't want to miss out on visiting," said Oakland County's health officer, Kathy Forzley.

"We're probably still on the upswing of cases," said Susan Peters, a state epidemiologist.

Last year, about 40.8% of Michiganders older than 6 months were vaccinated, lower than the national average of 45%, the state health department's Swanson said.

This year, at least 3.3 million doses of the flu vaccine have been shipped to Michigan, far short of what is needed to boost the vaccination rate even to the national average, though more can be shipped, Swanson said.

At least 1.7 million were administered by Dec. 20 - about 260,000 more than by the same time in 2012, Swanson said.

"Here's my fear: We wait too long," he said, noting that the vaccine takes 10 days to two weeks to be effective.

Vaccination rates usually peak in October, and health providers - struggling to keep up with packed waiting rooms and routine appointments - are less likely to continue to encourage vaccines later in the season, he said.

One of the seven children who died had been vaccinated, and two were too young to be vaccinated, according to a state report.

Health officials would not release details about the infant who died, including an age or in what county the child lived, although they did say the child was not vaccinated nor had underlying health conditions.

Also in central Michigan, at least one school reported several cases of influenza-like symptoms - high fevers, respiratory problems and coughing - though a lab did not confirm the virus, Peters said.

Health Alert! 12 States Hit With Deadly Swine Flu In Just Two Weeks (Video)
Tuesday, December 31, 2013 16:28

By Susan Duclos

[Update 1/1/14] 621 cases in Canada in a one week period.

Accoding to a report in Hispanic Business the flu season has taken off but the “main strain” named is the deadly H1N1 Swine flu, which has claimed multiple lives, and four of them were children who died from flu complications.

The H1N1 flu was responsible for the pandemic of 2009- 2010 which final totals in deaths were in the hundreds of thousands and now cases are being found in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, Kansas, Wyoming and Alaska and according to the latest reports, now California, where half the patients are already in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

[Update] Add Tennessee to the list, bringing the total states to 12.

According to WBIR, from a report before the news of California and Tennessee’s cases, all this when just two weeks ago, no states had reported H1N1.

In the second video below, Mary Greeley goes over previous reports on testing which first came up negative, then positive, and wonders if the H1N1 virus hasn’t mutated.

First North American death from bird flu

 North America's first fatal case of bird flu has been announced but Canada's health minister says risk of the disease spreading is very low


The first fatal case of bird flu in North America has been reported in Canada.

Officials in Canada said the victim, who was from Alberta, had just returned from Beijing.
 
The unnamed victim, who was not identified, died on January 3, having been admitted to hospital on Jan 1.
 
Four days earlier the victim, whose sex was not disclosed, had complained of a headache and fever.
 
Rona Ambrose, the Canadian health minister, insisted this was an isolated case, although officials are trying to contact others on the flight.

"The risk of H5N1 to Canadians is very low," she said. "There is no evidence of sustained human-to-human transmission."
 
Two people who travelled with the victim are being kept under observation for 10 days – double the time the disease takes to manifest itself as a precaution.
 
Officials said the H5N1 virus was identified by the federal microbiology laboratory in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
 
The virus is contracted directly from birds, mainly poultry. In 60 per cent of human cases the disease is fatal.

Read in my Dallas Morning News yesterday over "Flu death toll hits 26 in Dallas County"("Unusually virulent strain has sent 557 to hospitals, put dozens in intensive care"). And they mentioned H1N1.

Again, more fear, Fear, and FEAR! They're using the MSM to do just that - get everyone to take the VACCINE SHOTS! Saw my local news last night, and couldn't believe the people admitting to giving in to this(propaganda). And I thought I saw one guy with the word "Chaplain" on the back of his coat(ie-perhaps they're getting 501c3 ministers to help them roll this out now? Caesar slowly calling in his chips, perhaps?).

20 years ago when I was in college, there were almost always numerous people in my classes that would be absent for a week or 2 during the month of Feb b/c of the flu, but en yet you never heard the MSM et al push for vaccinations like they do now. Just saying.

1Peter_5:8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Alberta woman who died of H5N1 was in her 20s

Dr. Michael Gardam, an infectious disease consultant with Toronto's University Health Network who's not with the WHO, says it's "odd" for humans to get infected with H5N1 from a non-poultry source. "Almost all of the cases that we've heard about going back to the 1990s, there's been direct contact with poultry,"
