A lower infection rate with a higher
death rate could signal the beginning
of the h1n1 swine flu second wave.
Colorado Springs — With h1n1 swine flu numbers down (lowered level of reported cases) and yet with a spike in both influenza and pneumonia-related deaths at a level that rivals peak numbers since the beginning of the pandemic in April 2009, early signs indicate that the second wave of the h1n1 swine flu pandemic may be beginning right now. Evidence suggests a more virulent version of the virus is circulating, a mutated version of the early novel virus.
Note, from April 2009 until December 2010, it was all one wave of the original virus with only sporadic appearance of the new mutated strain (first appearing in October 2009). The mutated version is more deadly to youth, attacks the lungs, and leads to a secondary infection of pneumonia.
The pandemic is ongoing and deadly in both India (death toll 1,210) and Ukraine (death toll 1,005), with both locations presenting the symptoms of a more virulent virus. Advance warning could be sounding in Tennesse at present:
Physicians at Le Bonheur say more people are coming to the hospital with flu-like symptoms. Since the start of the new year, about 18 people have been admitted to Le Bonheur with flu-like symptoms, said Dr. Keith English, director of Infectious Diseases at the hospital. - Shelvia Dancy
Dr. Keiji Fukuda, addressing the 2009/2010 H1N1 Pandemic at the Council of Europe declared:
The H1N1 pandemic is not the same as seasonal influenza and differs in major respects. Large outbreaks occurred outside the usual season for influenza. The virus caused a striking and unusual pattern of severe illness and deaths in younger people, with many deaths caused by viral pneumonia, an especially aggressive form of pneumonia. This pattern is not typically seen during seasonal influenza.
- Dr Keiji Fukuda, January 26, 2010
If, as signs indicate, a more virulent version of the h1n1 swine flu virus is now circulating in parts of the world — including the United States — and if the current h1n1 swine flu vaccine will offer no protection against the mutated virus, now would be the very best time to investigate natural remedies to the h1n1 swine flu influenza. Wake up and stop allowing others to think for you, especially anyone linked to the "health industry." There are very real remedies which will aid you in fighting the flu. Look into them. Now.
This dramatic jump in deaths raises concerns that the current H1N1 is more virulent and lethal than the H1N1 circulating in the fall. The early appearance of that virus dramatically increased the P&I, which then declined as the H1N1 levels declined. However, the current jump is well ahead of such a corresponding jump in H1N1, which would support a more lethal H1N1. - Recombinomics, January 29, 2010
