    Just got word that the daughter of one of the attorneys that I work with was just diagnosed with the H1N1.
    Of course the attorney was in the office today running around like that little spider monkey in the movie "Outbreak"

    New flu strain 'has mutated, become more infectious'
    The Yomiuri Shimbun

    The new strain of influenza appears to have mutated to become more infectious for humans, the online edition of science magazine Nature reported Monday, referencing research by a team including Prof. Yoshihiro Kawaoka of Tokyo University's Institute of Medical Science.

    The surface of influenza virus particles are covered with thorn-shaped proteins called hemagglutinin (HA), which allows the virus to stick to human cells.

    After analyzing multiple samples of the new flu virus, the team ascertained that in some cases the HA of the new H1N1 strain have mutated, allowing the strain to stick to human cells more easily.

    According to Kawaoka, the same mutations have been found in HA of the H5N1 strain of influenza, the highly virulent bird flu, which kills about 60 percent of those it infects. Kawaoka said the virus is still in the process of mutating into a form even more infectious to humans.

    New Mexico boy dies of bubonic plague
    SANTA FE, N.M., June 11 (UPI) -- Health Department officials say residents of Santa Fe County, N.M., should take precautions amid three confirmed cases of bubonic plague in the county.

    Paul Ettestad, the state public health veterinarian, said residents also need to be cautious with pets that are allowed outside because the county is seeing a number of bubonic plague cases involving animals, The (Santa Fe) New Mexican said Thursday.

    "Besides the human cases, we're also having animal cases," Ettestad said. "Those span from Taos County all the way down north-central New Mexico. I don't suspect that plague is just in one small area, it seems to be countywide in Santa Fe."

    A 54-year-old man is the third person to be confirmed with the potentially deadly infection, which has claimed the life of an 8-year-old boy. The boy's 10-year-old sister was also infected, Ettestad said.

    The doc over there said that it all depends on whether this one mutates too much.

    If it doesn't, you would have at least some immunity. If it does, it will be like new all over again.

    I'll take my vitamin D and be a good girl.

    [You know. They so overhyped this, when the next bug comes along, everyone will give them a big thhhhppppt!]

    DHS chief and other gov "officials" have indicated that a return of this bug is expected this summer/fall....however the language used was such that it is not so much expected as it is SCHEDULED. Eat your veggies....eat your garlic (raw) and DON'T take any vaccines.

    My great neice has the flu. I'm hoping my neice her Mother takes her to the doctor today. This is the one who I am very close to and who just lost the kitten Bella. I am very worried. I tried to call but am getting no answer. Makes me nervous.
