Pig flu? we all doomed or what?
« on: April 27, 2009, 07:27:54 PM »
http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,25391072-2703,00.html

anyone been following this? I only started reading about it yesterday but 100 or so dead in a few days, victims in the 20-40 age bracket, and transmission between people not from animals to people (wasn't that why bird flu didn't kill us all?). Could get interesting if it gets out of control, or it could just be a flash in the pan like SARS. Anyone here with medical knowledge and can enlighten me?
...and on the other a soldier with a bullet wound in his lower belly and his sphincter shot away so that his faeces are leaking out. The smell of excrement mingles with that of the scorching flesh of the corpses being burned in the distance.

Unless you started in Madagascar, there was no way of winning that game. Idiots would close down their borders at the first sign of trouble.

Lol, I kept refreshing until I started in Madagascar... still didn't win... they closed their own fucking port before I got out, and I was running as a highly infectious, completely symptomless bacteria (from memory) with maximum resistances and shit. Fucking scientific geniuses... they must have sacrificial scientist agents who take random bodily fluid samples from every one in the world.

The few times I did get into Madagascar, some other lame ass country would wise up and shut down everything.

Fuck, imagine if in real life only Madagascar survived, and repopulated the earth. I mean, you'd EXPECT most pathogens of such high order to originate from there.

I just heard a short news flash about it earlier so I don't know the full details. This movie I just watched last night came to mind though - Doomsday. Surprised I hadn't heard about it before as it's pretty kick ass and has some cool action in it, but Jez told me about it. It's like a cross between 28 Days Later, Aliens and Mad Max, so I recommend checking it out.

Have you seen 'Smoke em if you got em'? that has a Doomsday theme, not a bad movie. It's the end of the world and the survivors have radiation sickness, they dont have long to live so they all get fucked up on drugs. One scene this guys is offered a 'bong and a bang' he doesn't know what it is but he's dying anyway so thinks fuck it why not. He has the bong then they grab him and stick his head in a microwave, thats his bang  :laugh:

Is that the one in scotland with the cannibals and medieval survivalists? not bad, but 28 days/weeks later is far better. The disease effects were cool though.

wikipedia this morning says death toll up to 149, was 103 yesterday.

Edit: 149 confirmed http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,25398262-12377,00.html

You've got to keep in context that Mexico isn't exactly world-renound for its medical care services. Still, sounds like it could be quite serious untreated. Thankfully the WHO got their act together with the whole H5N1 thing and are much more prepared.

Just remember that if you've got the flu, stay at home unless it gets really bad. This thing doesn't have a 100% mortality rate, looks to be more like 2-3% like bird flu was, so you don't want to spread it everywhere just like a regular flu.

If 100,000 people die in one week from it and the infected keeps rising its something to be afraid of..
other than that its another media plot to stir shit.

more people die from other diseases each day, reports??
fucking crock of pig shite

The difference is that its a new mutation of a disease we haven't seen before. We shouldn't be surprised, that's exactly what viruses do to survive.

And the big problem with these strains of virus, the ones made of a cocktail of viruses from other animals, is that humans have no natural immunity to it and, like the Black Plague, it attacks people who would otherwise be considered young and healthy. But you've gotta remember that even pandemics like the Black Plague only had about a 2% mortality rate, too. The reason an absoulte biblical amount of people died at the hands of that virus is because they didn't have antibiodics.

But I completely agree with the amount of typical media shit stirring happening at the moment. People have got to realise that when they see the word PANDEMIC it actually means, according to WHO, the fufillment of the following criteria;

* Emergence of a disease new to a population.
* Agents infect humans, causing serious illness.
* Agents spread easily and sustainably among humans.

Theres nothing about killing BILLIONS of people in there, just that theres a new virus in town and we need to be snappy about controlling it before that ~2% blows out of proportion in real terms.
