Testing is under way in New York to rule out the strain of swine flu that has killed dozens in Mexico.

New York City health officials say that about 75 students at a Queens high school have fallen ill with flu-like symptoms. Tests underway.

Silly; all it shows is that uppa crust prep school kids get all the attention, and resources, the rest of us will never see.

This is the panic phase. The doom comes later. When the real deaths are counted, Drudge won't notice...or report.

Something tells me that we're about to find out if this wasn't a mass exposure event real soon.

I'm skeptical about the human-human transmission vehicle. I'm in a remote area in Arkansas and we've got one man down with flu-like symptoms today. He had initial high fever and today became quite ill.

Wait and see on this, but I think time will bear out my theory.

Re: Drudge reporting NYC Swine flu Outbreak...
I had a dream the other night that multitudes of people were being put in body bags, and I was quarantined. People were dropping like flies. I live in NYC. The people that quarantined me told me I would be safe. I asked them what it was that was causing the people to die. He said what sounded like "ants." I asked him to repeat, and it sounded then like "ands" or "ans," like he was saying an acronym. A lot of times dreams have symbolic messages, and I sure hope this one wasn't a prophetic dream of people dropping like flies because of this swine flu. Perhaps it was just a personal message for me. I guess I'll find out...

Yes Tessa, this guy missed 3 days of work with fever, and decided to come in today, of all days! I was out back smoking a cigg and I asked him if he was sick, because his color was grey... He said that he was better, but he looked like he crawled out of a casket this morning.

So, you see why I'm skeptical. This guy hasn't been on any trips anywhere the last few days, much less Mexico.

Good luck to you sweety, but I think you'll find my theory will hold true, but I sure hope not..

Re: Drudge reporting NYC Swine flu Outbreak...
About 3 weeks ago in the Poconos (not far away), flu symptoms closed a school with over 200 absent. Wonder if this is the flu in NY, or maybe the swine flu has been around longer than now reported?


Health officials investigate illness of 200 Coolbaugh Elementary pupils

March 29, 2009

The state Department of Health is trying to determine what sickened about 200 pupils at Coolbaugh Elementary Center in the Pocono Mountain School District last week.

School officials called the Health Department Friday, concerned when about one-third of the pupils in the school were experiencing nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, Stacy Kriedeman, a Health Department spokeswoman, said Saturday.

Department officials haven't determined the cause but suspect it is norovirus, which health-care workers have been seeing a lot of in the state recently, Kriedeman said.

''Norovirus is often referred to as the stomach flu,'' she said. ''Usually it lasts for 24 to 48 hours.''

Kriedeman said Health Department officials do not believe the children in the Tobyhanna school were sickened by anything environmental or by something they ate.

She said the symptoms are typical of norovirus, which is spread easily and often turns up in places where large groups come in close contact with each other.

To keep the virus from spreading, bathrooms should be disinfected with a bleach-based product after a sick person uses them, Kriedeman said. Washing hands thoroughly and often helps.

Good catch! Which reminds me of another story I read somewhere ELSE as well! Hmm.....

Yep, I'm starting to think this is indeed a mass exposure event. If this is true, it isn't quite potent enough to be a true weapons grade vector. The mortality rate below the border is a bit disturbing, however.

Illness strikes Holy Cross High School


BY DAVID SINGLETON
STAFF WRITER
Published: Friday, February 06, 2009
Updated: Friday, February 6, 2009 8:32 AM EST
Holy Cross High School will be closed today as school officials try to rein in an illness that kept nearly 200 students out of classes one day earlier this week.

Principal James Marcks said Thursday the unplanned holiday came in response to unusually high absenteeism at the Diocese of Scranton school in Dunmore that peaked Wednesday when 196 of the 515 students either stayed home or left school ill.

On Thursday, Holy Cross had 172 students absent, he said.

Mr. Marcks said the school nurse identified the main culprit as an upper respiratory ailment that produces flu-like symptoms, although no cases of influenza have been diagnosed. State Department of Health officials do not believe influenza is to blame, spokeswoman Stacy Kriedeman said.

“Hopefully, it is starting to pass,” Mr. Marcks said.

Ms. Kriedeman said Department of Health officials consulted with the school, which is required to advise the state any time there is an unusually large number of students out sick.

While the department cannot order the school to shut down, and Holy Cross officials made the ultimate decision, closing for the day was a prudent choice, she said.

“Obviously, when people are sick, one of the things we recommend is that they stay home from work or school,” Ms. Kriedeman said.

She said the department also emphasized the school should encourage students and staff to practice good hand-washing techniques and “good coughing etiquette,” or covering a cough tightly with the crook of the elbow — as opposed to the hands — to lessen the spread of germs.

Ms. Kriedeman said she was unaware of similar outbreaks at other schools in Pennsylvania.

Doctors at Community Medical Center reported they have not seen “anything out of the ordinary” as far as the number of upper respiratory conditions this winter, spokeswoman Jane Gaul said. It was a similar story at Mercy Hospital, spokesman Jack Coyle said.

Mr. Marcks said the maintenance staff will thoroughly sanitize the school before students return. In the meantime, he is recommending students use their time off to stay home and rest.

Classes will resume Monday, he said.
