Spiking the Swine Flu Numbers

We are assuming everything that looks like flu is probably H1N1.’’

That'll do it!

The Great Swine Flu Scam

The Swine Flu Straw That Broke the State's Back


All we get are LIES and ASSUMPTIONS!!!!

"Children’s Hospital doctors believe rise in visits due to H1N1; ER patient levels up 40% this year" by Elizabeth Cooney, Globe Correspondent | October 30, 2009

Emergency doctors at Children’s Hospital Boston began seeing an increase in what they think are swine flu cases over last weekend, Dr. Anne Stack, clinical chief of emergency medicine, said yesterday.

About 25 to 30 children a day are coming to the hospital with the hallmarks of flu - fever, cough, sore throat, congestion, and headaches - pushing the total number of emergency patients 40 percent higher than usual for this time of year. Doctors are not testing patients for flu, but they see the rise in visits as a sign of the spreading H1N1 virus.

A week ago, state officials said flu activity in the state had increased and was now widespread, the highest category on the scale of disease spread. “Normally this time in October we see 170 kids a day, but on Monday, we saw 240,’’ Stack said. “We are assuming everything that looks like flu is probably H1N1.’’

Do you remember the old saying that states when you ASSUME something you MAKE an ASS of U and ME!!!?

The cases appear to be as mild or milder than seasonal flu, she said. Unless children have underlying health problems or appear to have complications, they do not need to come to a hospital, she said. If a child has difficulty breathing, is dehydrated - cannot urinate for six to eight hours or cannot drink - has a change in mental status, or has a rash with a high fever, then coming to the emergency room is appropriate, she said.Otherwise, children can safely be treated at home with Tylenol, fluids, and rest....


And it is a national emergency, huh?
