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.
