Post H1N1 Reported Almost as Severe as SARS in China
H1N1 Reported Almost as Severe as SARS in China

The current H1N1 epidemic across China has become almost as severe as the SARS epidemic a few years ago, according to a hospital staff member in Shenzhen who spoke with New Tang Dynasty Television (NTDTV) on Nov. 23. He asked to remain anonymous.

Although Shenzhen officials claim that there have been no variants so far, the medical staff member from the Shenzhen Bao’an People’s Hospital said that variants have indeed been discovered.

“Three types of symptoms have been reported, and they are all flu. Now there are many symptoms—and they are variants of the H1N1 flu.”

Numerous cases of deaths have been reported in several provinces and cities.

The staff member also said that this surge in H1N1 flu patients did not begin just recently. The epidemic situation in schools has been the most severe, even though many of the students received flu shots. He said there is currently a shortage of vaccine.

“The flu is everywhere in primary and secondary schools,” the staff member said, “As soon as one person gets infected, the whole class gets infected. Hospitals run out of wards. It is like it was during the SARS epidemic,” he added.

Staff from the education division of the local Center for Disease Control (CDC) refused to comment, saying only that journalists must file an application to request an interview.

Director Cheng Jinquan of the Shenzhen CDC said they have confirmed 1,136 cases, adding that the actual number could far exceed that.

Since the H1N1 virus spreads quickly, it is prone to becoming a pandemic. According to a Southern Metropolitan News report on Nov. 21, the number of infections in Shenzhen could reach as high as 1,000,000.

The Department of Health of Guangdong Province recently reported five deaths there. Guangdong is the place where SARS first broke out in Nov. 2002.

By 2003, SARS had spread to nearly thirty countries, affecting more than 8,000 people with more than 800 deaths. The economic losses were estimated at USD$30 billion. China had the largest number of infections, with those in Hong Kong and mainland China comprising 80 percent of all infections worldwide. Sources inside China say the actual number of infections was likely much higher. (http://www.theepochtimes.com/news/5-9-8/32146.html)

Presumably to reduce the level of panic as SARS swept across China, the Chinese Communist Party started calling the disease “atypical pneumonia,” instead of its internationally acknowledged label, “Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome” or SARS.

Yes Squareyard, it is not as bad as in 1918, however, there is possibilities that this could mutate more, and add that with the resistance to Tamiflu, then you'll be eating your yard stick. ;)

I don't think one should laugh at the numbers, those numbers are human beings ill and dying.

Just because it is not more deadly doesn't mean it won't become so.

Still waiting on that yardstick to eat. I would think that anyone that knows me I wouldnt discount and laugh at anyone's ill or death. I am just wondering how long that yard stick is? One foot for the real pandemic to come or 6 feet under for the current trial period of vaccinations that everyone figured out was bogus. You tell me?

This is what I am dreading and yet expecting - either a new virus or a mutated form of H1N1 that is easily spread, but FAR more virulent. And the current vaccine won't offer any protection because of the mutations or another novel virus (wonder what's being cooked up this time)?

The revelations as to the proven ties between WHO and big pharma, and the CDC and big pharma validate my feelings about the huge campaign to sell the H1N1 vaccine. This is leaving out the conspiracy factor - that the vaccine is a prelude to the coming real pandemic and will serve to ensure that those who have been vaccinated will become severely ill with the next virus. I say conspiracy, not because I think it is only a "nutty" part of the populace who think everybody is out to get them, but because I believe that it is a conspiracy perpetrated by those who want to gain control over the population.
