The 'Triad' Virus, has mother nature gone wild or is this something totally different?

Three unlikely unions, trow everything into the pot and stir? Not what normally happens, so what is going on here?

Why is it to late to contain? The CDC stated grandiose planed for a Biological Attach, shutting down borders, cities, restricting travel, even Marshal Law. So what is going on here?

The great Pandemic of 2009 and it slipped under the radar, very, very worrisome.

Swine Flu May Be Named Event of ‘International Concern’ by WHO

By Jason Gale


April 25 (Bloomberg) -- The World Health Organization is set to declare the deadly swine flu virus outbreak in Mexico and the U.S. a global concern, potentially prompting travel restrictions, said a person familiar with the matter.



An emergency committee of the WHO in Geneva will declare the outbreak “a public health event of international concern” in a 4 p.m. teleconference today, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting is confidential. In response, WHO Director-General Margaret Chan (http://search.bloomberg.com/search?q=Margaret+Chan&site=wnews&client=wnews&proxystylesheet=wnews&output=xml_no_dtd&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&filter=p&getfields=wnnis&sort=date:D:S:d1) may raise the level of pandemic alert, which could lead to travel restrictions aimed at curbing the disease’s spread.



“These levels of pandemic alert are all signals for action,” said Malik Peiris (http://search.bloomberg.com/search?q=Malik+Peiris&site=wnews&client=wnews&proxystylesheet=wnews&output=xml_no_dtd&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&filter=p&getfields=wnnis&sort=date:D:S:d1), a professor of microbiology at the University of Hong Kong, who has studied influenza viruses for more than a decade. “Raising the level of alertness to influenza, especially in returning travelers, would be a relevant thing to do.”
Human-to-human (http://www.cdc.gov/flu/swine/investigation.htm) spread of the previously unseen H1N1 swine influenza in Mexico and the U.S. is heightening concern that the virus may spark a pandemic. At least 68 people have died and more than 1,000 have fallen ill with flu-like symptoms in the Mexico City region in the past month, Jose Cordova (http://search.bloomberg.com/search?q=Jose+Cordova&site=wnews&client=wnews&proxystylesheet=wnews&output=xml_no_dtd&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&filter=p&getfields=wnnis&sort=date:D:S:d1), Mexico’s Health Minister, told reporters yesterday. The government has shut schools and distributed face masks.



Sari Setiogi (http://search.bloomberg.com/search?q=Sari+Setiogi&site=wnews&client=wnews&proxystylesheet=wnews&output=xml_no_dtd&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&filter=p&getfields=wnnis&sort=date:D:S:d1), a WHO spokeswoman in Geneva, declined to comment on the agency’s response, saying it will depend on the outcome of today’s meeting.



Closing Theaters



Mexico’s Social Security Institute shut all of the theaters and cultural centers it operates nationwide to avoid spreading the flu strain -- reminiscent of actions implemented during the 2003 SARS outbreak in Asia. Travel curbs imposed there damaged economies throughout the region, where that virus circulated most widely.



In Singapore, where 33 infected people died, gross domestic product shrank 11.4 percent in the second quarter of 2003 because of the severe acute respiratory syndrome.



Swine flu was confirmed in 20 of the deaths so far in Mexico. Of 14 tissue samples tested from Mexico, half were a genetic match with the swine flu reported in eight people in California and Texas, the Atlanta-based Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (http://www.cdc.gov/flu/swine/) said.



“We do not know whether this swine flu virus or some other influenza virus will lead to the next pandemic,” Richard Besser (http://search.bloomberg.com/search?q=Richard%0ABesser&site=wnews&client=wnews&proxystylesheet=wnews&output=xml_no_dtd&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&filter=p&getfields=wnnis&sort=date:D:S:d1), the CDC’s acting director, told reporters yesterday on a teleconference. “Scientists around the world continue to monitor the virus and take its threat seriously.”



Pandemic Threat



The new influenza strain, a conglomeration of genes from swine, bird and human viruses, poses the biggest threat of a large-scale flu pandemic since the emergence of the H5N1 strain that has killed millions of birds and hundreds of people, said William Schaffner (http://search.bloomberg.com/search?q=William+Schaffner&site=wnews&client=wnews&proxystylesheet=wnews&output=xml_no_dtd&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&filter=p&getfields=wnnis&sort=date:D:S:d1), an influenza expert at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee.



“It re-combined to create something totally new,” David Butler-Jones (http://search.bloomberg.com/search?q=David%0AButler-Jones&site=wnews&client=wnews&proxystylesheet=wnews&output=xml_no_dtd&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&filter=p&getfields=wnnis&sort=date:D:S:d1), Canada’s chief public health minister, told reporters yesterday. “How, when, or where it did that I don’t think we know. What it will lead to is impossible to predict.”



WHO’s alert level is at level 3 (http://www.who.int/csr/disease/avian_influenza/phase/en/index.html), meaning there is no, or very limited, human-to-human transmission of a potential pandemic virus. Officials at the agency have said the global spread of the H5N1 bird flu virus since 2003 has put the world closer to another influenza pandemic than at any time since 1968, when the last of the previous century’s three pandemics occurred.



Alert System



WHO uses a six-step alert system (http://www.who.int/csr/disease/avian_influenza/phase/en/index.html) to tell the world what preparations to take in response to a pandemic. Flu can spread quickly when a new strain emerges because no one has natural immunity and a vaccine takes months to develop. The 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, which killed as many as 50 million people, began when an avian flu virus jumped to people, doctors said.



Teams of disease investigators have been sent to California and Texas to trace how the malady has spread, and the U.S. offered to send scientists to Mexico, said the CDC’s Besser. U.S. hospitals are being asked to collect samples from patients with flu-like symptoms, said Schaffner, chief of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt, in a telephone interview yesterday.
‘Sense of Urgency’



“They are asking us who work in hospitals to go to our emergency rooms and our pediatric wards to gather specimens and start testing them,” Schaffner said. “This has a sense of urgency about it.”



Mexico’s government has closed schools, museums, movie theaters and libraries in Mexico City and surrounding areas until further notice, according to an e-mail from the National Arts and Culture Council. It’s also handing out free facemasks and extending the deadline for filing taxes until May 31, Cordova said. A million doses of antiviral medicine are available for distribution, he said.



Twenty-four cases, including three deaths, have been reported in San Luis Potosi, in central Mexico, and four cases have been found in Mexicali near the border with the U.S., according to the WHO (http://www.who.int/csr/don/2009_04_24/en/index.html).



Three main human flu strains -- H3N2, H1N1 and type-B -- circulate and cause 250,000 to 500,000 deaths a year in seasonal epidemics, according to the World Health Organization. Pandemics occur when a novel influenza A-type virus, to which almost no one has natural immunity, emerges and begins spreading.

@All
Any microbiologists lurking here that would be willing to state the probabilities of these three viruses merging without help?

I see where the US says 'No evidence of terrorism', okay that is fine, I guess if the US made it, it could not be called terrorism. Well I know a tiny bit about the micro world and this occurrence is a left field event. Viruses are wonderful to study and are fairly predictable (with minor changes) if they were not we could not provide the yearly vaccines we do.

This (in my opinion) is an orgy gone wild or some lightening bold melted three petri dishes together.

I think 2009, 2010 and 2011 are going to be years for the history books, that is if someone is left to read the books.

CLG: Baxter working on vaccine to stop swine flu, though admitted sending live pandemic flu viruses to subcontractor By Lori Price 26 Apr 2009 The OMFG moment of the century. Illinois-based Baxter working on vaccine to 'stop' swine flu outbreak in Mexico (25 Apr 2009) But, looky here! Baxter admits sending live avian flu viruses to subcontractor --People familiar with biosecurity rules are dismayed by evidence that human H3N2 and avian H5N1 viruses somehow co-mingled [!] in the Orth-Donau facility. (27 Feb 2009) Is Baxter International taking a page from the Blackwater playbook? Just as Blackwater/Xe keep on killing to justify their multi-billion dollar contracts to provide 'security' in Iraq and Afghanistan, Baxter International is poised to make *billions* to vaccinate people against their pandemic.

Briton quarantined as killer flu spreads 26 Apr 2009 A British Airways cabin crew member was taken to hospital with flu-like symptoms yesterday afternoon after falling ill on a flight from Mexico City to Heathrow. The Health Protection Agency said it was keeping a close eye on the situation.

New Zealand quarantines 25 amid swine flu alert 26 Apr 2009 Twenty-five students and teachers in New Zealand, some with flu-like symptoms, were quarantined and tested for swine flu after returning from a trip to Mexico, officials said Sunday, as Asia stepped up surveillance for the deadly virus.

Minister: 10 NZ students likely have swine flu 26 Apr 2009 New Zealand said Sunday that 10 students "likely" have swine flu after a school trip to Mexico, as governments across Asia began quarantining those with symptoms of the deadly virus and some issued travel warnings for Mexico. New Zealand Health Minister Tony Ryall said none of the patients was seriously ill and they seemed to be recovering. He said they tested positive for influenza but added that there was "no guarantee" the students had swine flu.

Mexico Takes Powers to Isolate Cases of Swine Flu --The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta said Saturday that it had sent a team of experts to Mexico to assist with the investigation cover-up of the outbreak.26 Apr 2009 This sprawling capital was on edge Saturday as... President [sic] Felipe Calderón published an order that would give his government emergency powers to address a deadly flu outbreak, including isolating those who have contracted the virus, inspecting the homes of affected people and ordering the cancellation of public events. The newspaper Reforma reported that President Obama, who recently visited Mexico, was escorted around Mexico City’s national anthropology museum on April 16 by Felipe Solis, an archaeologist who died the next day from flu-like symptoms.

Just another excuse to give more (acidic) vaccines that will provide profit. This morning on the radio, along with the news report about this health concern, was also the report that such and such vaccine "can be used to treat it." Lol that says nothing about the vaccine's effect as a treatment but to ears of the unknowing person makes them happy to be injected with it. Their insurance is charged (well until they plus their employer are both charged their ginormous monthly premiums) and they go on their way, perhaps feeling a bit sick that day from what was just put in them but believing they are safer.

But what's this. . .vaccines are now proven in court to have caused autism.

Imo stay the h away from vaccines. Work on you pH instead. Those who have ears and want to live long and healthy let them hear :D

From CDC:
"Every year in the United States, on average 5% to 20% of the population gets the flu; more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu complications, and; about 36,000 people die from flu-related causes."

UK:
Each year winter flu kills around 4,000 people in the UK.


Globally:

Globally, between 500,000 and one million people die each year from influenza.

So 1/2 to 1M people a year die from the "regular" flu around the world anyway and nobody bats an eye.

I guess it was a medication, not a vaccine, that they said could be used to treat this. Now on the news I am hearing that there is a vaccine being worked on for it for the future.

What is going on here? A couple months ago Baxter “accidentally” released a flu virus material from one of its plants containing a live avian flu virus. Luckily it was tested and discovered before it was used.
Deadly viruses are found missing at an army facility.
How do these accidents happen at places where they supposedly know how to handle these deadly viruses?

Now we have a brand new flu virus that has occurred during a non-flu season. A virus that was extremely unlikely to have happened by chance. Some say it had to have been genetically engineered and was accidentally or deliberately released.

Also during the past few years many microbiologists who would known how to handle these type of problems have mysteriously turned up dead through a variety of “accidents”.

By chance is there more going on here then we are aware of?


In the meantime here is a site that offers some practical ways to maintain your immune system. Of course you could always wait for the “official” vaccine.:p

Randy and others,

This was one of the best calls I've ever been on and I listened till 1:00am in the morn, being on east coast time.
Dr Haaglund is amazing. The info that he knows - doctors mostly knowing symptoms, a few tests, and a medicine for the symptoms is usually it. Brain surgery qualifications not needed for this. He also said he would be around this flu and probably get sick, fever (bodies way of killing germs) and in a few days get well, but not DIE. ;) He knows his immune system is working. A lot of the people in Mexico live in a highly stressed and POLLUTED environment, no wonder some can't handle a illness and die, as in the new flu. This call should be archived soon and should be listened to. I mean you gotta listen to this!!:thumbsup:

I market the Optimum D-Tox (http://optimumhealthandnutrition.com/default.asp?UN=startnow) because of the great effects w/digestion/energy/less hungry/immune system benefits/low cost. I ordered it initially from Dennis Richard's site. I'm amazed on how easy it is to use. It's also anti- bacterial, viral, fungal, tumor!!! As you can guess, no preservatives are needed, this is one tough plant! It can be put topically (dropper in a bottle is how it comes) on scars! They have a radio program that's archived where you can learn about all it does. Go to the site.
Oh, it also has a Chinese PIN # for use over there -- this is the only natural product from North America thats approved in China. A little scary that this is made here, (not in China) and they are already getting the benefits from it, but not in our hospitals... shame shame, oh well.

Jessica's right about ph, that's very important also. A majority of the people have an acidic body ph level. Most of what they eat/drink causes that.

I also learned last night that the table salt at the store is bleached and only has traces of Iodine (not enough) and the worst thing is the aluminum powder added to keep it "flowing from the shaker":D Himalayan is the best, sea salt can be polluted -- you don't see factories up in the Himalayas, ya know. Thank goodness I don't put salt on anything but oatmeal.

Just some food for thought,
I wish you the best,
Doug

Here's a report from Dr Mercola:

American health officials declared a public health emergency as cases of swine flu were confirmed in the U.S. Health officials across the world fear this could be the leading edge of a global pandemic emerging from Mexico, where seven people are confirmed dead as a result of the new virus.
On Monday April 27th, the World Health Organization (WHO) raised its pandemic alert level (http://www.who.int/csr/disease/avian_influenza/phase/en/index.html) to four on its six-level threat scale,1 (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/04/29/Swine-Flu.aspx#_edn1) which means they've determined that the virus is capable of human-to-human transmission. The initial outbreaks across North America reveal an infection already traveling at higher velocity than did the last official pandemic strain, the 1968 Hong Kong flu.
http://articles.mercola.com/ImageServer/7.12pigs.jpgThe number of fatalities, and suspected and confirmed cases across the world change depending on the source, so your best bet -- if you want the latest numbers -- is to use Google Maps' Swine Flu Tracker (http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&t=p&msa=0&msid=106484775090296685271.0004681a37b713f6b5950&ll=32.639375,-110.390625&spn=15.738151,25.488281&z=5).
Several nations have imposed travel bans, or made plans to quarantine air travelers2 (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/04/29/Swine-Flu.aspx#_edn2) that present symptoms of the swine flu, such as:

Fever of more than 100
Coughing
Runny nose and/or sore throat
Joint aches
Severe headache
Vomiting and/or diarrhea
Lethargy
Lack of appetite Top global flu experts are trying to predict how dangerous the new swine flu strain will be, as it became clear that they had little information about Mexico's outbreak. It is as yet unclear how many cases occurred in the month or so before the outbreak was detected. It's also unknown whether the virus was mutating to be more lethal, or less.


Much Fear Mongering Being Promoted
I suspect you have likely been alarmed by the media's coverage of the swine flu scare. It has a noticeable subplot - preparing you for draconian measures to combat a future pandemic as well as forcing you to accept the idea of mandatory vaccinations.


On April 27, Time magazine published an article (http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1894129,00.html) which discusses how dozens died and hundreds were injured from vaccines as a result of the 1976 swine flu fiasco, when the Ford administration attempted to use the infection of soldiers at Fort Dix as a pretext for a mass vaccination of the entire country.



Despite acknowledging that the 1976 farce was an example of “how not to handle a flu outbreak”, the article still introduces the notion that officials “may soon have to consider whether to institute draconian measures to combat the disease”.


WHO and CDC Pandemic Preparedness Seriously Broken

The pandemic warning system has failed as it simply doesn't exist, even in North America and Europe. To improve the system, massive new investments in surveillance, scientific and regulatory infrastructure, basic public health, and global access to common sense interventions like vitamin D optimization are required.


According to the Washington Post, the CDC did not learn about the outbreak until six days after Mexico had begun to impose emergency measures. There should be no excuses. The paradox of this swine flu panic is that, while totally unexpected, it was accurately predicted. Six years ago, Science dedicated a major story to evidence that "after years of stability, the North American swine flu virus has jumped onto an evolutionary fasttrack".
However, maybe this is precisely what public health authorities desire.


This is NOT the First Swine Flu Panic

My guess is that you can expect to see a lot of panic over this issue in the near future. But the key is to remain calm -- this isn't the first time the public has been warned about swine flu. The last time was in 1976, right before I entered medical school and I remember it very clearly. It resulted in the massive swine flu vaccine campaign.



Do you happen to recall the result of this massive campaign?
Within a few months, claims totaling $1.3 billion had been filed by victims who had suffered paralysis from the vaccine. The vaccine was also blamed for 25 deaths.



However, several hundred people developed crippling Guillain-Barré Syndrome after they were injected with the swine flu vaccine. Even healthy 20-year-olds ended up as paraplegics.
And the swine flu pandemic itself? It never materialized.
More People Died From the Swine Flu Vaccine than Swine Flu!
It is very difficult to forecast a pandemic (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2006/08/26/states-still-reserving-vaccines-for-an-imaginary-pandemic.aspx), and a rash response can be extremely damaging.



As of Monday April 27, the worldwide total number of confirmed cases was 82, according to WHO, which included 40 cases in the U.S., confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control. But does that truly warrant the feverish news headlines?



To put things into perspective, malaria kills 3,000 people EVERY DAY, and it's considered "a health problem"... But of course, there are no fancy vaccines for malaria that can rake in billions of dollars in a short amount of time.
One Australian news source,3 (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/04/29/Swine-Flu.aspx#_edn3) for example, states that even a mild swine flu epidemic could lead to the deaths of 1.4 million people and would reduce economic growth by nearly $5 trillion dollars.



Give me a break, if this doesn't sound like the outlandish cries of the pandemic bird-flu I don't know what does. Do you remember when President Bush said two million Americans would die as a result of the bird flu (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2005/10/25/avian-flu-epidemic-is-a-hoax.aspx)?
In 2005 (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2005/11/15/finally-medical-journal-admits-the-truth-about-bird-flu.aspx), in 2006 (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2006/05/27/what-happened-to-that-imaginary-avian-flu-epidemic.aspx), 2007 (http://blogs.mercola.com/sites/vitalvotes/archive/2007/03/26/More-Evidence-Bird-Flu-is-a-Hoax.aspx), and again in 2008 (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2008/02/14/i-was-right-about-the-bird-flu-hoax.aspx), those fears were exposed as little more than a cruel hoax, designed to instill fear, and line the pocketbooks of various individuals (http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2006/09/12/rumsfeld-to-profit-from-bird-flu-hoax.aspx) and industry. I became so convinced by the evidence AGAINST the possibility of a bird flu pandemic that I wrote a New York Times bestselling book, The Bird Flu Hoax (http://www.greatbirdfluhoax.com/), all about the massive fraud involved with the epidemic that never happened.

HERBAL HEALER UPDATE
May 20th, 2009

Headlines and More Information on H1N1 this week.

U.S. health officials troubled by new flu pattern

100,000 LIKELY INFECTED WITH NEW STRAIN IN USA
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The new influenza strain circulating around most of
the United States is putting a worrying number of young adults and
children into the hospital and hitting more schools than usual, U.S.
health officials said on Monday.

The H1N1 swine flu virus killed a vice principal at a New York City school
over the weekend and has spread to 48 states. While it appears to be mild,
it is affecting a disproportionate number of children, teenagers and young
adults. This includes people needing hospitalization -- now up to 200,
said Dr. Anne Schuchat of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention.

CDC officials say around 100,000 people are likely infected with the new
flu strain in the United States and Schuchat said the 5,123 confirmed and
probable cases and six deaths in the United States were "the tip of the
iceberg."

Hospitals Swamped Amid Flu Fears
As anxious patients force emergency rooms to adapt to the crowds,
officials fear the system would be overwhelmed if the outbreak became
severe.
Across the country, emergency care facilities are straining at the seams
even though the outbreak is relatively small and the federal government
has launched a mammoth disease-control effort -- dispatching antiviral
drugs to states, attempting to contain the limited number of cases.

* WHO fears complications if HIV and H1N1 viruses combine
GENEVA, - People with HIV are at high risk from the new flu strain that
the World Health Organization said is on the verge of a pandemic, the WHO
said on Saturday. HIV and the new flu strain could also mix together in a
dangerous way, as has occurred with HIV and tuberculosis, the WHO said in
guidance for health workers on its website. According to WHO estimates,
there are 33 million people infected with immune-weakening HIV worldwide.
