Just as news was spreading about the new H1N1 Swine Flu and Americans were heading to Mexico for Spring Break, the U.S. Military effectively closed the border for it’s own personell.  http://www.vaccines.mil/documents/1239USNORTHCOM_H1N1_MEXICO.pdf   

1. (U) DUE TO THE ONGOING HEALTH THREAT IN MEXICO, THE UNITED STATES EMBASSY,    MEXICO CITY BY ORDER OF THE CHARGE DE AFFAIRS HAS DIRECTED THAT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE ALL INBOUND TEMPORARY DUTY TRAVELS ARE SUSPENDED UNLESS IN DIRECT SUPPORT OF THE H1N1 FLU OUTBREAK CRISIS. 2. (U) IN SUPPORT OF AND COMPLEMENTARY TO U.S. EMBASSY MEXICO COUNTRY CLEARANCE ACTIONS, USNORTHCOM DIRECTS THAT OFFICIAL DOD TRAVEL TO MEXICO BE RESTRICTED TO ESSENTIAL TRAVEL ONLY IN SUPPORT OF H1N1 FLU OUTBREAK CRISIS. SPECIFIC GUIDANCE PERTAINING TO USNORTHCOM THEATER CLEARANCE PROCEDURES IS CONTAINED… ‐119 (MEXICO THEATER )   Subject: HQ USNORTHCOM FORCE PROTECTION DIRECTIVE 09  CLEARANCE  Originator: NORAD AND USNORTHCOM COMMAND CENTER(UC) DTG: 292248Z Apr 09   

Distributed April 15, 2009 came another warning regarding military travel to Mexico.  http://docs.google.com/gview?a=v&q=cache:j0b8TH6NQN0J:https://www.bliss.army.mil/bliss_home_files/documents/policy/TravelPolicyforMexico09-001.pdf+USNORTHCOM+travel+to+mexico&hl=en&gl=us&sig=AFQjCNGFi7jNwsE9-U7m-TlEAXzXF0cwdg   All military travel along the Mexican State of Chihuahia and ALL Mexican cities along the U.S. -Mexico border are off limits……     Found in a Yahoo message group post of all places.  July 26, 2005– “Since USNORTHCOM issued its travel advisory for Mexico our office has been overwhelmed with requests for information…. http://www.mail-archive.com/osint@yahoogroups.com/msg13317.html  Read that date 2005!  The warning flags were up for military personell and Department of Defense Officicials sealing off sections of our border with Mexico, while the average Joe the Plumber could hop across the border for a Corona with little government warning about H1N1 Risk or threat of serious crime.                                                 

As far back as 2006, preparations have been made for just such a Pandemic. http://www.olligmu.org/~docstore/800docs/0809-801OLLI%20Vaccines%20Srs%2030Sept08FIN.ppt#494,43,Headline  Prepared by the Osher Lifelong Learning Center Sept. 30, 2008. The Report outlines Pandemic Preparedness from a 1996 pandemic.gov site to include: Vaccination Prioritization, Expand Internet Capacity for work at home, Tresury Dept- other countries produce currency, VA drive through medical exams and vaccinations, 12-18 month crisis, up to 1.9 Million deaths in U.S.,.  It goes on to say: Use drugs from National Stockpile Cancel Large Gatherings Encourage School Closings, Dispatch National Guard if necessary, Introduce Travel Restrictions, Role of Containment and Quarantine…  It appears the government has taken most of it’s own advice as has the Ukraine. This week it annouced border closures, restriction of movements and creation of “special regimes” to oversee adverse effects. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/11/01/swine-flu-quarantine-in-ukraine-border-closed/ 

The Department of State has issued this Travel Alert to update security information (current as of 11/02/09) for U.S. citizens traveling to and living in Mexico.  It supersedes the Travel Alert for Mexico dated February 20, 2009, and expires on February 20, 2010.  http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/pa/pa_4491.html It makes no mention of the H1N1 pandemic but notes the vast increase in crime throughout the country.  

Health information on Travel to Mexico from the CDC is more focused on Malaria and that more people are killed in car accidents. http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/mexico.aspx There also no mention of H1N1.    

The CDC claims The United States is not screening travelers who arrive from other countries or depart for other countries.http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/content/news-announcements/delays-H1N1-screening.aspx But in April 2009-  Richard Besser, acting director of the CDC, revealed that the U.S. authorities were starting to undertake “passive screening” at its borders. He restated the Obama administration’s call on Sunday for people to stay calm.” http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-04/28/content_11269405.htm 

Dr Salim J. Habayeb, WHO Representative to India said, “Our official WHO position is not to recommend travel restrictions under existing circumstances for pandemic H1N1 2009. But many countries did institute cross-border measures based on past deliberations. Such travel measures may possibly be useful in the early stages, what we call the containment stage.  But at the pandemic phase 6, such containment measures are of limited value since the infection is disseminated and spreading at the community level. http://htsummit.hindustantimes.com/summit-news/airport-screening-for-h1n1-of-limited-value-now-1.php  

The Department of State has issued an alert for  U.S. citizens to the quarantine measures imposed by the Government of China in response to the 2009-H1N1 pandemic that may affect travel to China.  This Travel Alert updates the July 9, 2009, Travel Alert in order to advise U.S. citizens of the current quarantine situation.  This Travel Alert expires on December 30, 2009. From May to August 2009, the Department of State received thousands of reports of quarantined U.S. citizens http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/pa/pa_4238.html    We would expect one to be issued for the Ukraine soon.

In the interest of safety or tracking your whereabouts, Travel registration is a free service provided by the U.S. Government to U.S. citizens who are traveling to, or living in, a foreign country. Registration allows you to record information about your upcoming trip abroad that the Department of State can use to assist you in case of an emergency.https://travelregistration.state.gov/ibrs/ui/  

You might be able to get out of the U.S., but getting in may not be as easy. Even in the U.S., airlines have the right to deny boarding to passengers for any number of reasons, including sobriety, hygiene and illness, according to Wayne Harvey, president of the Airport Facilities Council of the International Facilities Management Association. http://www.google.com/hostednews/canadianpress/article/ALeqM5gOJ-kQ4v4Duh-QZRjI28neFkXwmQ

http://www.nmcphc.med.navy.mil/downloads/prevmed/NDRSiReportingUpdate_14Sept09.pdf for the complete document.

Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are sexually transmitted diseases and curable with antibiotics use. 

As opposed to CDC and government statistics sounding alarm bells at the increased number of H1N1 Swine Flu nationwide, our military is seeing no such numbers U.S. troops are combat ready, just having a lot of unprotected sex.   At the time of this report no one had apparently began receiving the H1N1 Flu shot.

There was some concern when The Boxer and the Boxer Amphibious Ready Group and the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (13th MEU) reported that a large amount of crew members had either the Swine or Seasonal Flu. see- https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/27/h1n1-swine-quarantine-navy-ship-crew/#comment-2784 

In recent weeks a small number of ARG Sailors and 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) Marines aboard USS Boxer (LHD 4), USS Lake Champlain (CG 57), USS Comstock (LSD 45) and USS New Orleans (LPD 18) had symptoms of an influenza-like illness (ILI). Sixty-nine crew members were officially confirmed to have had strain H1N1 virus, while many others were confirmed to have a typical seasonal flu strain.

“Units now have the ability to provide enhanced medical intervention in shipboard infection control, decontamination-disinfection, patient isolation, sampling and initiation of treatment,” Baxter said.  http://www.navynews.com/local_news_04.htm

Whether or not patient isolation can be defined as a quarantine is up for debate. 

From The Chief, Bureau of  Medicine and Surgery, A.M. Robinson, Jr in a May 2009 report regarding Interim Guidance  for H1N1 Influenza Virus Infection- http://www-nmcphc.med.navy.mil/downloads/diseases_conditions/SwineFlu/BUMEDNOTE%206220%20(6%20May%202009).pdf 

d. Planning Measures

(1) Movement restriction (to include isolation, quarantine, and sequestration of units) is a viable means by which to decrease spread of infection.

U.S. Northern Commander, Air Force General Gene Renuart said that between 15 and 20 troops have been dispatched to each of the five regional headquarters, to work with officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and state leaders.  But the military presence could rise to 80 in each regional office if needed, he said.”http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5g928uDiWtcnBFT28j5UfIeUXXuMQD9B1838G2 

The move to have active duty troops on U.S. soil throws Posse Comitatus out the door.  Will the same planning measures of isolation, quarantine, and sequestration that applies to military personnel also apply to civilians?

The fact remains that “All military personnel will be vaccinated against the H1N1 flu virus, and the vaccine will be available to all military family members who want it.”  http://www.vancouverite.com/2009/09/02/mandatory-swine-fluvaccination-for-u-s-military 

condom red

Both Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are preventable with the use of condoms.  Perhaps a better educational directive from the Military would be an appropriate measure since the reported cases far out way those of the H1N1 Swine Flu or Novel Influenza.

Just last week, an HIV positive soldier was punished for having unprotected sex.  The 37-year-old aviation electronics technician was sentenced to three months’ confinement and a bad-conduct discharge after pleading guilty to two counts of aggravated assault as well as disobeying an order.   http://hamptonroads.com/2009/10/hivpositive-sailor-punished-having-unprotected-sex

Mexico US Absolut Ads 

A/H1N1 Swine Flu supposedly is a chance result of an accidental mutation between avian, human and swine flu viruses in a host animal- that animal being humans.  Putting aside the chance that A/H1N1 virus is a man made virus, could global warming be the cause?  There is no Absolut answer- so far.

A/H1N1 Swine Flu so far attacks, subsides and then mutates, does a reassortment dance and then becomes more deadly —all the while infecting humans.

In a report titled, “Avian Influenza Virus Glycoproteins Restrict Virus Replication and Spread through Human Airway Epithelium at Temperatures of the Proximal Airways“…. blah, blah, blah says the report and this: 

Avian influenza viruses are adapted for growth at 40°C, the temperature of the avian enteric tract. However, the human proximal airways, the likely site of initial inoculation by influenza viruses, are maintained at a cooler temperature (32°C), suggesting that zoonotic transmission may be limited by temperature differences between the two hosts. Using an in vitro model of human ciliated airway epithelium, we show that avian influenza viruses grow well at 37°C, a temperature reflective of distal airways, but are restricted for infection at 32°C.  http://www.plospathogens.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.ppat.1000424

Avian influenza viruses grow well at 37°C, but are restricted for infection at 32°C- .  Would it be fair to say that Avian Flu viruses like it hot, hot, hot to spread, but when the temps begin to drop, so do the numbers of cases?  

The Mexican data show cases of pneumonia – a proxy measure for severe flu – soared in April, mainly in Mexico City. April temperatures there range between 11° and 26 °C, climbing higher than the summer average in London, UK. http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn17100-warm-weather-may-not-halt-swine-flu.html

April and May when the virus first appeared in Mexico City shows an average temperature of Mexico City at 79 degrees F.  In June as we see  decline in the number of reported cases, we also sees a decline in the average temperature to 76 degrees F in Mexico City.http://www.mexico-vacation-rebate.com/mexico_city_weather.html  Could a few degrees colder help kill H1N1?

Look to the Northern Hemisphere where Summer has finally appeared- we see an increase in flu reported illnesses.  In the southern hemisphere the standard, seasonal flu season is just beginning.

Are these countries giving a hint of what is coming to the U.S. this fall and winter?  

” The JTF-HD CONPLAN 5003-08 has been revised to incorporate new guidance and procedures contained in USPACOM CONPLAN 5003-08, published 23 Apr 2008.  Primary changes include adopting the six-phase concept, aligning the document to the new JOPES format, and, clearly delineating the supported and supporting command relationships for clarity of responsibilities of each participating response organization.  This revision also includes changes that have been promulgated through the US Federal Government’s National Response Framework (NRF), which clearly defines the role and responsibilities of the Federal Coordinating Official (FCO), the Defense Coordinating Official (DCO), and, the State Coordinating Official (SCO) in the National Incident Management System (NIMS) that is used to manage the Defense Support to Civil Authorities (DSCA).”  http://www1.apan-info.net/Plans/ConceptPlan5003/tabid/2054/Default.aspx

But American troops may also be called on to respond at home, to quell domestic disturbances. The US military has long had so-called Garden Plot plans to respond to civil disturbances. Under the Insurrection Act, Federal troops have been deployed ten times from 1957 [in Little Rock] to 1992 [in Los Angeles]. United States Northern Command [USNORTHCOM], responsible for Homeland Security operations, has developed Concept Plan (CONPLAN) 2502 Civil Disturbance Operations.

The US Department of Health and Human Services and the US Department of Homeland Security promulgated the “Guidance on Allocating and Targeting Pandemic Influenza Vaccine” in July 2008. Vaccine will be allocated and administered according to tiers. The highest priority Tier 1 consists of 24 million Americans, including 700,000 deployed military forces. Another 1.5 million national security personnel are among the 15 million Americans in Tier 2.  http://sitrep.globalsecurity.org/articles/090506329-military-implications-of-pande.htm

The population clock at http://www.census.gov/population/www/popclockus.html 306 million people; most of who are not in the Top Tiers and will not be entitled to quick vaccine access; if in fact, the unproven vaccine works in the first place.  Funny how it is the tax payer who foots the bill, is last on the list.

Rain, shine, cold or hotter than hell, you and I are at the bottom of the list of tiers to receive any kind of vaccine.  Seeing as it is Baxter Pharmaceutical  who has announced it has begun to mass produce a vaccine, I’ll pass based on past history of malfeasance. 

I am going to lay in the sun, tan like George Hamilton, suck down a few Absolut martini’s, wash my hands more than usual; turn up the Ipod from lawn mower noise pollution, and as Joe Biden advised quite sometime ago- stay off the subways to avoid the H1N1 Flu.

I can’t believe I am thinking that its 6 months until winter.  Apparently the A/H1N1 flu doesn’t like the cold weather either.
