The World Health Organisation said on Thursday it was investigating reports of mutations in the swine flu virus, after half a dozen countries recorded cases in which the virus was transforming. Two patients who were infected by a swine flu mutation that was also recently detected in Norway have died in France, health officials say. READ MORE

BEIJING: Two people died after they were inoculated with the H1N1 flu vaccine in China, health authorities reported, amid wariness among the Chinese about the quality of the shot.
Deng Haihua, spokesman for the health ministry, said in a statement posted on the website late Friday that authorities had been notified of the deaths in the past two days, but he gave no personal details of the victims.
Preliminary results of an autopsy on one of the victims revealed the patient suffered a sudden death due to heart issues and experts had ruled out a link to an allergic reaction to the vaccine, according to the statement.
Deng said final results had yet to be announced, and an autopsy on the second victim was underway.
But he sought to play down the news amid public concern – a survey published by state media in October revealed that over half of Chinese did not plan to be vaccinated as they were unsure about the safety of the shot.
“Specialists say that it is unavoidable that several serious adverse reactions will happen amid the more than 10 million people who have received the vaccine, and the 20, 30, 150 million who will in the future,” Deng said.
China has so far reported 43 deaths from A(H1N1) influenza and more than 65,900 cases of the disease, according to the health ministry.
The H1N1 vaccine will arrive too late to help most Americans who will be infected during this flu season, according to a study conducted by scholars at Purdue University, The Washington Times reported on Tuesday.
The study also estimates that the virus — commonly referred to as the swine flu bug — will infect about 60 percent of the U.S. population READ MORE>>>
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention released estimates today that there have been 22 million H1N1 cases in the U.S. between April and October.
The estimates show that between 14 million and 34 million cases of H1N1 occurred between April and October 17, and the mid-level in this range is about 22 million people.
The CDC released numbers on Nov. 11 that approximately 4,000 Americans likely have died from swine flu, which was four times more than conservative estimate they’d been using up until now. CDC numbers also show that about 36,000 Americans die of seasonal flu each year.
NEW DELHI – One swine flu death was reported Sunday, taking the total toll due to Influenza A (H1N1) virus in India to 485, health authorities said here.
Also, 71 new cases were reported in the country, taking the total number of people affected with the virus to 14,477.
One death was reported from Maharashtra, taking the total toll to 207 – the highest in the country. As many as 3,716 people have tested for the virus in the state.
“Till date, samples from 76,033 people have been tested for Influenza A (H1N1) in government laboratories and a few private laboratories across the country and 14,477 of them have been found positive,” said a statement issued here.
Of the 71 new cases, 34 alone were from Rajasthan where so far 93 people have been affected by the contagious virus.
Delhi continued to record new cases. On Sunday, the national capital reported 12 new cases, taking the total number of people who tested positive for the virus in the Indian capital to 3,604.
New cases were also reported from Karnataka (17), Kerala (4), Haryana (2) and Orissa (2).
Letter to Jeff Rense of Rense.com from Patricia Doyle, PhD
Hello Jeff -
I am making a plea to everyone who reads this, please, please DO NOT TAKE ANY VACCINE THAT IS PURPORTED TO ‘PREVENT’ THIS FLU.
Remember 1976 and the so called Swine Flu outbreak that was purported to be a coming pandemic? It only infected recruits at Ft. Dix. Why? Because I believe that the so called Swine Flu virus infected the recruits due to the vaccines they were given. Whether the government developed the Swine Flu 1976 virus and infected the recruits as a means to test the public to see if people would comply with a call to take vaccination against Swine Flu, or the recruits became infected via contaminated vaccine they were given as part of the recruit regimen, that outbreak was as phony as they come. I was one of the people duped into taking a Swine Flu shot and it made me so sick. I was sick in bed for three months after taking the vaccine.
Do not take seasonal flu vaccine if you are told that it could help prevent this brand new Swine Flu variant. It won’t do a thing to prevent this flu. What it will do is serve up new genetic material to the Swine Flu virus that I have dubbed Spanish Flu 2, the Sequel. The Spanish Flu variant will use the gene sequences in the vaccine in humans to develop more of the changes that make the virus more readily infect humans. We do not want to give this virus more human genetic material so that it will infect humans more readily person to person. This is what vaccinated individuals do for pandemic strains.
There is also a safety issue in any experimental vaccine, much like the one in 1976. Some people even feel that such a vaccine for pandemic strain might require more than one vaccination which could actually be a binary set up. The first shot might just add some genetic code that stays dormant in the body until one gets the second vaccine shot which then serves to only cause infection. It could trigger Guillain-barre syndrome, Typhus or some other condition.
An Influenza vaccine does not protect or prevent a person from contracting flu. It is purported to, maybe, prevent some complications of flu and maybe shorten duration. I am not even sure it does that. Personally, I feel the vaccine weakens our immune system and also sickens us due to contaminants in the vaccine. I feel that people can better protect themselves by washing hands often and thoroughly. People should also use protective gloves when out and about during epidemics. Don’t be afraid of “looking odd.” I would not be ashamed to use a mask and gloves. I see that the Mexicans are using them.
A big problem during a pandemic is that these simple supplies will become extremely scarce awfully quickly. Stock up now. Medical supplies. personal hygene supplies and don’t forget fido, or any other pet. Once a pandemic hits, it will be too late to stock up. Water, too.
We may lose clean water and electric power, so be prepared.
So, please, people, DON’T TAKE ANY VACCINES OFFERED. THEY COULD KILL YOU BEFORE ANY VIRUS KILLS YOU.

The piggery theory falls over as pigs and most people in the Mexican area where the first case appeared are apparently okay, although Canada has positively correlated H1N1 flu cases with proximity to factory pig farms.
If you read America’s Expansive Bioweapons Industrial Complex, maybe it will give you more than a hint as to who or what may be behind H1N1:
“These BSL–3 and 4 labs are the facilities where research is conducted on highly infectious viruses and bacteria that can cause injury or death. Some of the world’s most exotic and most dangerous diseases are handled at BSL–3 and 4 labs, including anthrax, foot-and-mouth disease and Ebola fever. The accidental or deliberate release of some of the biological agents handled at these labs could have catastrophic consequences. Yet, as we will hear from the Government Accountability Office, GAO, no single Government agency has the ultimate responsibility for ensuring the safety and securing of these high-containment labs. However, GAO states there is a major expansion of the number of BSL laboratories is occurring both in United States and abroad but the full extent of that expansion is unknown. (”Germs, Viruses and Secrets: The Silent Proliferation of Bio-Laboratories in the United States,” Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, U.S. House of Representatives, October 4, 2007, Serial No. 110-70, pp. 1-2)
“The hearings revealed that no one “in the Federal Government even knows for sure how many of these labs there are in the United States, much less what research they are doing or whether they are safe and secure.” Neither “safe” nor “secure” such facilities however, are highly profitable.
“During 2007 alone, some 100 “incidents” were reported; however, “there are indications that the actual number of incidents may be much higher,” according to Rep. Stupak. Reporting guidelines are so lax that dangerous pathogens such as hantavirus, SARS and dengue fever “are not on the select agent list” nor are there requirements “that the theft, loss or release of these agents … be reported to Federal officials.”
This was found not at a conspiracy type website, but a website for engineers.
Flir has revealed how its infrared cameras can help detect the spread of swine flu and other viral diseases.
Several major airports in Asia discovered the benefit of infrared cameras in conjunction with the outbreak of SARS a couple of years ago.
They now use Flir infrared cameras to scan whether arriving travellers can be contaminated with the N1H1 virus – the correct name of the virus behind swine flu.
The infrared cameras used at the airports are specifically developed to detect individuals with high body temperatures in only a couple of seconds.
The cameras have been developed based on experience from previous flu outbreaks such as SARS and bird flu and are present in many airports in south-east Asia, where the presence and threat of bird flu was the highest.
The camera produces infrared images or heat pictures of a person’s face and detects whether the body temperature exceeds a certain value or not.
The infrared cameras are easy to use and have proven themselves as tools that can be operated by non-specialists after a few hours of training.
The camera needs no active monitoring as it has both colour and sound alarm functions, making staff aware of any passing individuals with a body temperature exceeding a predefined value.
On the camera display an infrared image of the individual’s face is produced, clearly marking different temperature areas as different colours.
The highest-temperature spot will be automatically displayed and measured with one decimal accuracy.
The infrared cameras from Flir are sensitive devices and measure temperature differences as small as 0.08C.
Ideally the camera is set up at places with long queues such as passport or customs control.
To achieve the correct temperature the camera should focus on the most reliable temperature spot on the body – the corner of the eyes.
Infrared cameras can play a vital role in the efforts of keeping the spread of swine flu or any other viral infection under control.
