Swine Flu Peaks Before Vaccine Makes Widespread Distribution

According to recent findings by the CDC, one in five U.S. children have already experienced the flu this month, and most of those were likely H1N1 swine flu cases.

Out of nearly 14,000 suspected flu cases tested during the week ending on October 10, 2009, 99.6% of those were influenza A, and the vast majority of those were H1N1 swine flu infections. (http://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/) This is a very strong indication that swine flu infections have peaked during October, 2009.

Researchers from Purdue University just published a paper in the October 15 issue of Eurosurveillance (a science journal about communicable disease) in which researchers stated that the H1N1 swine flu epidemic would peak during "week 42" (the end of October). Week 42 just passed.

The AJC is also reporting this week that swine flu is "retreating" in Georgia, where hospital visits from the flu are markedly down (http://www.ajc.com/health/swine-flu...) and fewer illnesses are being reported in schools, too.

Even the WHO is reporting a downward trend in many areas, saying, "In tropical areas of the world, rates of illness are generally declining, with a few exceptions. ...In tropical Asia, of the countries that are reporting this week, all report decreases in respiratory disease activity." (http://www.who.int/csr/don/2009_10_...)


Meanwhile the vaccine shortage has been causing chaos according to news reports and many vaccination events are being canceled as a result as well.

This is what you expect when a President declares a National Emergency for something that really isn't, scaring the American Public, and creating the resulting chaos. There were actually reports of women who were stuffing pillows under their clothes to feign pregnancy so that they could get the vaccine. Sad and disgraceful.
