More swine flu deaths, cases confirmed

May 10, 2009

— Kansas has confirmed six more swine flu cases, bringing the total to 18 in the state.

The Department of Health and Environment said Saturday in a news release that the latest cases involve three children in Wyandotte County, an adult and a child in Johnson County, and a child in Ottawa County.

No other details were released about these new cases.

The state health department has established a phone line for concerned Kansans to call with questions about swine flu. The number is 1-877-427-7317. Operators will be available to answer questions from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Costa Rica reported the first swine flu death outside North America on Saturday and the U.S. announced its third death from the virus, while Mexico delayed the reopening of primary schools in some states.

Japanese authorities, meanwhile, scrambled to limit contact with their country’s first cases, and Australia and Norway joined the list of nations with confirmed cases of swine flu.

Like other deaths outside Mexico, the Costa Rican man suffered from complicating illnesses, including diabetes and chronic lung disease. In the latest U.S. death, health officials in Washington state said Saturday night that a 30-year-old man with underlying heart conditions died last week with what appeared to be complications of swine flu.

Passengers from a plane from Seattle to Tokyo have been quarrantined for up to 10 days after a teacher and 2 students became ill mid-flight. Four other passengers have since been hospitalized. Japan is taking this flu very seriously.

Get 4 face-masks, wrap your tinfoil around them, then glue them to a some popsicle sticks, and stick 2 of them in your ears, 2 in your nostrils.

Congratulations, you now look like Marion, and you have done just as much as he has for the understanding of this health event.

And stay off all those burgeoning trade routes to Dickinson County. They are dangerous.

Recent Marion S. Lynn observations about the flu:


I think we're in for it with this one.


it's here and runnning.


I concur but also expect that one or the other of the flus or hemoragic fevers is going to take care of that matter for us and in the not too distant future.


Boston, were I you, I would be out trying to find some masks and thinking about preparation as this situation is going downhill fast.


If you get locked out, no one may let you in.


And if things do go South, don't knock on my door if you don't know my Rottweiller's name!


Got YOUR masks yet?


Why is the US/Mexican border not closed?


Get your N95s while you still can.


There are still N95s on a few store shelves.


Essentially, you are on your own


See, the thing is about flu and other diseases is that they can run and run hard.


Duck and cover, folks!


N95 masks are still available but will most likely be sold out in a few days

Several times this week I heard radio spots by Homeland Security warning us to prepare for the swine flu, to have two weeks worth of water, food, medications, cold medicine, aspirin, etc.on hand. The announcer was a woman, speaking in a very soft, matter of fact tone.

It is one thing when you read that kind of stuff on a tinfoil survival blog, and quite another when you hear it repeatedly as a Dept. of Homeland Security PSA on mainstream radio.

What's up with that? Is DHS anticipating the need for 14 day quarantines? Or that the water supply will be contaminated, or that the electrical grid will go down so that water cannot be treated?

I have not done any preparation. I wonder how many people have heeded the DHS warnings, and how many are like me, still not believing it?

When you start believing those voices, Godot, it is time to get back on the medications.

When you start listening to homeland security PSA's for advice about public health issues, you should start getting your annual prostate exam from the coast guard helicopter teams. Or from Marion. He knows everything.

Godot 5 years, 7 months ago

I guess DHS messages are all to be disbelieved. After all, they do come from the Sebelius/Obama factory of lies.

Godot 5 years, 7 months ago

Make that Napolitano/Sebelius/Obama factory of lies.

Boston_Corbett 5 years, 7 months ago

It wasn't Napolitano/Obama that created that mega-bureaucracy of police-defense speak and think, Godot. It was the master fearmongers.

Right up your alley. Keep on listening and believing. Your type is their target demographic. Say hello to Cheney next time you see him.

Boston_Corbett 5 years, 7 months ago

Godot..... could this PSA you listened to been broadcast on a Christian radio network? If so, I'm not sure it was even a "Homeland Security" made PSA.

Homeland Security would have distributed any PSA to all radio media.

Homeland Security would have distributed any PSA to all radio media. And I can not find a record of such a campaign online.

Godot can never be trusted to tell the truth..

and Marion Holocaust deniar Lynne is known to be..well, rather hysterical.

Boston_Corbett 5 years, 7 months ago

Assuming a one-half year flu season, with 36K deaths per year, there would normally be 2,800 deaths from seasonal flus in a two week period during flu season. The US has now experienced three H1N1 deaths, all in health compromised individuals.

Fourteen days.....2,800...... to 3.

Run for the hills Marion. Run. Run. Run. Stay off those trade routes. Avoid Mexican Tequila.

I think flu epidemic was caused by a virus in the LJW forum server allowing Marion to see a posting ghost of his Nick Danger self.

Don't you love it that he has learned to accept orders from Obama and Kathleen? Maybe he got infected with one of those brain-stem beetles the Romulans in Star Trek use.

Next thing you know, he will actually accept that people were killed in the Auschwitz Crematoria.

Boston_Corbett 5 years, 7 months ago

Marion has experienced three times as many posting deaths in the last 24 hours than the US has experience flu deaths in the last two weeks.

a four day old press conference the best ya got Marion? really breaking news.

bearded_gnome 5 years, 7 months ago

Oh Boston, we have to trust the secretary of homeland insecurity. after all, she's told us that mexican drug violence is not spilling over the border; we don't need a fence on our southern border. so, how dare you question her, plus she said some of the 9-11 terrorists came in to the u.s. through Canada! I am quite sure that every word she utters is golden.


gallina, it is a very very decayed old dead horse: everybody you disagree with is just lying. sad, and false. Godot is a faithful poster. it is you who has often posted falsehoods while slinging the "lie" claim.

Wait...only 45 confirmed deaths from this flu in Mexico?

Then what was all that mass hysteria the media was feeding us in the first couple of weeks, saying that 150 people in Mexico had died from it?

Could it be that someone actually...gasp...announced deaths from flu before they even knew what they died from?

Way to go, media...instead of waiting until you know for sure...how many times have we heard in the last two weeks: "there are blah-blah suspected cases of swine flu in blah blah county..."

Gee...why don't you wait until something is confirmed before you report it as so-called news??

bearded_gnome 5 years, 7 months ago

Marion has experienced three times as many posting deaths in the last 24 hours than the US has experienced flu deaths in the last two weeks.

LOL.

gee, where is the panicker in chief [marion]?

well last couple days we've learned that swine flu has been supplanted by sun spots as the scare of the week!

"we're all gonna die!"

Boston_Corbett 5 years, 7 months ago

Don't you love it that Marion quotes his pig-flu news from Obama and Kathleen?

Next thing you know, he will actually accept that people were killed in the Auschwitz Crematoria.
