Humm H1N1…. interesting

If you’ve been diagnosed “probable” or “presumed” 2009 H1N1 or “swine flu” in recent months, you may be surprised to know this: odds are you didn’t have H1N1 flu.

In fact, you probably didn’t have flu at all. That’s according to state-by-state test results obtained in a three-month-long CBS News investigation.

The ramifications of this finding are important. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Britain’s National Health Service, once you have H1N1 flu, you’re immune from future outbreaks of the same virus. Those who think they’ve had H1N1 flu — but haven’t — might mistakenly presume they’re immune. As a result, they might skip taking a vaccine that could help them, and expose themselves to others with H1N1 flu under the mistaken belief they won’t catch it. Parents might not keep sick children home from school, mistakenly believing they’ve already had H1N1 flu.

Interesting no????

  1. What scares me is the president declaring h1n1 a “national emergency”. This allows the administration all sorts of legal domestic power, such as militarization within the borders. I’ll be watching this very carefully.

  2. They can keep this swine flu shot. I was ordered along with my batallion 2ndbn 68th Armor in 1976. I couldn`t stop throwing up for 2 days and do remember their happened to be a lot of my platoon doing the same thing. My platoon leader was Lt. Fil who I hear is a general now in Korea.

  3. Interesting…yes.

    When myself and my son went to the doctor during the summer with “flu like symptoms”, they told us that we had N1H1. That it was too early for “seasonal flu”. When ask if they could “prove” it, I was told that yes, they could, but insurance companies weren’t paying for the test “just yet” so it would cost me $300 a pop to “prove” we had N1H1.

    So now the word you use is “interesting”? I find “convenient to be a better term. It’s awfully convenient that we had millions of Americans “told” they had N1H1, we had witch hunts here in Southwest Louisiana schools so we could identify “the infected” and ostracize them. Now, now they tell us that we probably didn’t even have the “flu” flu, much less N1H1?

    Seems convenient now that we have millions of potential beneficiaries of this “emergency” declining to play that game…so now we have to say something to bring them back into the fold.
