Looks like the race is on around the world to confine what I call the “Eye-Chiwawa Flu”, that is centered in Mexico City, Mexico and quickly spreading throughout the world.  One of the most reliable Google Maps on Swine Flu is being put assembled by Henry Niman, founder Recombinomics, who has been tracing the evolution of influenza for the last five years  http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&t=p&msa=0&msid=106484775090296685271.0004681a37b713f6b5950&ll=47.517201,-109.335937&spn=101.871352,255.585938&z=2  Another data map is up at http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/2009/apr/27/flu-flu-pandemic.

Although Bama has gotten a clean bill of health from his visit to Mexico April 16, hundreds more cases are being reported with lab results being forwarded to the CDC and WHO for typing.  The CDC analysis is showing the disease is a mixture of swine, human and avian (bird)viruses that has NEVER EVER been seen before.  Some of those who died have been confirmed to have the unique version of the A/H1N1 flu virus.

The jury is still out on what caused the mutation and its ability to spread by human to human contact.  Could the recent flu be a human error in a vaccine mixing process called reassortment?  Could it be a freak of nature?  Could it be some sort of terrorist attack?  A petting zoo? Bacon and eggs?

Whatever the cause, the world is hustling to reduce the spread of the flu and reduce panic at the same time.  Mexican government authorities were slow to connect the dots in this near pandemic, resulting in a delay in identifying what was making hundreds ill and causing nearly 100 deaths of otherwise healthy people. 

Countries around the world aren’t following in the lazy footsteps of Mexican Health Officials, nor are they waiting to see if the threat level officially labeled as a pandemic, or potential pandemic. Erring on the side of caution before it is too late, some countries have begun quarantines and confinements, but clearly not in American cities.

While Mexico all is quiet with public gatherings prohibited and schools, museums, libraries and sports events canceled, just across the border in the U.S., The Fiesta San Antonio parades went on as usual http://www.fiesta-sa.org/ attracting thousands with a few activities detailed here http://sanantonio.about.com/b/2009/04/25/parades-and-more-as-fiesta-chugs-to-a-conclusion.htm .So much for avoiding public places, eh?

China, Russia and Taiwan began planning to put anyone with symptoms of the deadly virus under quarantine.  The following is sample of what some countries are doing to combat the outbreak  http://cnnwire.blogs.cnn.com/2009/04/27/countries-take-steps-to-prevent-swine-flu-outbreak/ . 

Along the US  border, screening for swine flu exposure began this morning  as the European Union advised against nonessential travel to Mexico and America.  From AP http://www.ap.org/ –  “The U.S. declared a national health emergency Sunday in the midst of confusion…the move allowed the government to ship roughly 12 million doses of flu-fighting medications from a federal stockpile to states in case they eventually need them.” 

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, called the emergency declaration “standard operating procedure,” instead urging “people to think of it as a ‘declaration of emergency preparedness.'”

President Obama is set to address the health crisis Monday in remarks to a meeting of the nation’s top scientists says US News http://www.usnews.com/usnews/politics/bulletin/bulletin_090427.htm. His administration sought on Sunday to strike a balance, informing Americans without panicking them.  The Swine Flu story has been around for days and Obama has finally decided to officially inform Americans.  Whew! 

Obama and America is still without a secretary of Health and Human Services or appointees in any of the department’s 19 key posts.  He has also not chosen a surgeon general or the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0409/21719.html 

Guess we’ll have to rely on Homeland Security and the military, which makes me wonder what other privileges does declaring a national health emergency give your government?  The move will most definitely allow government agencies to free up federal, state and local agencies and their resources in preventing the spread of the virus.  What else?

If  Janet says, “be prepared, ” now would be a good time to cling to your guns and religion.   On the other hand, from the comments at http://sweetness-light.com/archive/napolitano-declares-emergency-preparedness it is noted that, “More people died in a Ted Kennedy Oldsmobile than have died from this swine/bird/human flu in Massachusetts.” 

Let’s hope that fact continues to be true not only in Massachusetts, but for all of America.

Updated flu reports and posts at  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/ah1n1-swine-flu-report/

Eye-chiwawa, a  strain of flu never seen before has killed up to 60 people in Mexico and 8 in the United States.   Reuters reports that the CDC analysis showed the disease is a mixture of swine, human and avian viruses.  Mexico’s health minister, José Ángel Córdova, said the virus had mutated from pigs and had at some point been transmitted to humans.  At least, he’s pretty sure.

A Mixture?  H5N1 does not’t easily infect people, H3N2 viruses do. If someone exposed to a mixture of the two had been simultaneously infected with both strains, he or she could have served as an incubator for a hazardous mixed virus able to transmit easily to and among people.   That mixing process, called reassortment, is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created and it looks like Mexico City is ground zero for it’s spread. 

In February 2009, American pharmaceutical company Baxter made a mistake of catastrophic proportions.  Baxter manufactured and sent The Austrian firm, Avir Green Hills bird flu vaccines that were found to contain a mix of H3N2 seasonal flu viruses and unlabeled H5N1-otherwise known as the human form of Avian Flu. 

Avian Flu is one of the most deadly biological weapons on earth with a 60% kill rate.  Avir Green Hills sent the vaccines on to labs in the Czech Republic, Germany, and Slovenia.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/03/11/vaccine-drug-deadly-costs-mistakes-threaten-pandemic/   The contamination was realized in the Czech Republic where they inoculated ferrets with the product and they died unexpectedly from exposure to human H3N2 flu viruses.  Imagine if they had inoculated infants or an entire population rather than ferrets?  Imagine if a terrorist got a hold of this? 

Bloomberg News is reporting The World Health Organization in Geneva will declare the outbreak “a public health event of international concern” noting that it may raise the level of pandemic alert, which could lead to travel restrictions aimed at curbing the disease’s spread. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601085&sid=atHtXtCigRII&refer=europe 

WHO has the world presently in phase 3: a new influenza virus subtype is causing disease in humans, but is not yet spreading efficiently and sustainable among humans.  “In my mind, what we’re talking about is moving from a pandemic alert 3 to a pandemic alert probably 5,” said Michael Gardam, director of infectious diseases prevention and control at the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion. Level 5 indicates a new strain with significant human-to-human transmission. Level 6 is a pandemic. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20090425.ILLNESS25ART2116/TPStory/National

Whatever threat level is assigned, and whomever raises the alert could result in border closures, travel and trade restrictions.  Mexico City is already in lockdown mode with schools, museums and libraries closed and soccer games being played to empty seats.  How far the lockdown goes is anyones guess.  I wonder what FEMA Zones may be impacted?  Craig Fugate, President Obama’s nominee to head FEMA, sailed through his confirmation hearing last week before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Welcome to your new job, dude.  

WHO estimates between 250,000 and 500,000 deaths annually from the seasonal flu strains H3N2, H1N1 and type B.  Experted from the NYTimes- Seasonal flus cause most of their deaths among infants, elderly people and the infirmed, but “pandemic flus — like the 1918 Spanish flu, and the 1957 and 1968 pandemics — often strike young, healthy people the hardest.  The leading theory on why so many young, healthy people die in pandemics is the “cytokine storm,” in which vigorous immune systems pour out antibodies to attack the new virus. That can inflame lung cells until they leak fluid, which can overwhelm the lungs. Despite the alarm in recent years over the H5N1 avian flu, which is still circulating in China, Indonesia, Egypt and elsewhere, some flu experts argued that it would never cause a pandemic, because no H5 strain ever had. All previous pandemics have been caused by H1s, H2s or H3s.  http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/25/world/americas/25mexico.html?_r=1&ref=world

There are no estimates for this most recent outbreak and there is no cure, only treatment and prevention. 

Currently there are four different antiviral drugs that are licensed for use in the US for the treatment of influenza: amantadine, rimantadine, oseltamivir and zanamivir. None of these antiviral medications exist in large quantities! http://www.globalsecurity.org/security/ops/hsc-scen-3_flu-pandemic-medicine.htm.

The CDC is running its own investigation here http://www.cdc.gov/swineflu/investigation.htm, most creatively saying wash your hands and that there is no vaccine available at this time.  Eye-chiwawa, indeed.

Correction- Damn it anyway, I hate it when I am wrong but glad that there weren’t 8 people who died in the US- rather 8 were identified as sick with the virus.
