Now it's at stage 5...?
So now the pandemic threat of SIV is up to 5, are we all surely done for? Should I go with my friends to the mountains, where nobody goes? We are calling it 'Plan Run For The Hills' or PRFTH for short... should we activate it? No jokes here please.

Did this have to happen at such a bad time?! I have course work due in soon and I still have some left to do!!!

OP IS A ******

yes but

it is just a regular flu that is slightly mutated nothing to worry about, the only deaths are in Mexico (not alot of medicine...etc), and one in the us (a baby)

All those people on the show "the hills" probably have hiv instead of siv so i doubt its much safer there :p

First and foremost, while you should take this news seriously, please don't panic. So far, symptoms of swine influenza are similar to other strains of influenza: fever, chills, aches, cough and congestion. The only thing that's being reported as out of the ordinary is some vomiting and diarrhea as well.

So, as you did last January, wash your hands and cover your mouth with the crook of your elbow if you cough or sneeze. If you get sick, yes, call your doctor, but treat yourself with rest, fever reducers (not aspirin for children) and plenty of fluids. We always have to worry about the very young and old, but again, we haven't seen swine flu in these groups yet. We also have to worry about our patients who have some chronic medical problems like cancer, which can compromise their immune system. However, this, too, is nothing new.

You may have more cause for concern if you recently traveled to Mexico and then got ill, but the CDC is keeping doctors up-to-date on how to test patients. Also, while swine flu can be treated with the antiviral drugs zanamivir and oseltamivir, demanding them or stocking up on them is going to cost you (and our fragmented healthcare system) lots of money for very little benefit at this point. The government already has ample stockpiles of antiviral drugs that can help beat this bug should the outbreak get worse.

While it's true that the Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano declared a "State of Emergency" over the outbreak, she stressed that it isn't anything more than a procedural move to free up resources for those who may need them. So with thoughtful preparedness and surveillance by health agencies, local awareness among citizens and doctors, and more than just a little luck, we can all hope this will pass fairly quickly.

That's cool you guys have a plan. I will admit, I had laugh. It reminded me how so many times my old preacher dad would tell us he was gonna take us to the Hills to hide out when the Mark of the Beast came.

With Obama as our Leader, you will see more and more disturbing things happening, get ready.

stop panicing lol

♥ =^.^= ♥ нєℓєη ♥ =^.^= ♥
I don't live in USA and Mexico, but all I'm saying is DON'T PANIC just trust your government that you are all going to get help from this.

Media hypes up everything, honestly.. do you really think America will let this pass? NO!! Something will be done, and we are all safe, its not a big deal

For reliable info:

pandemicflu.gov (constantly updated by CDC)

The staging is mainly to try and prevent a pandemic rather then say that were all going to die, the WHO have raised it to level 5 so they can do alot more to prevent Swine Flu turning into a pandemic, but yes they are saying a pandemic is likely to happen, but at the mo people outside of Mexico who have it only have is mildly, which is a relief. But now it's all about trying to stop more people from contracting it from people that have been to Mexico and got it (human to human contact) which is what would proberbly turn it into a Pandemic. But still think of how many million's of people that live in the U.K and it's only 5 confirmed to have it, it's not like it's 50+ plus, so calm down.

No, its just a flu. It'll all be over soon. Besides, if you bring anyone with you and they start showing symptoms, then you'll get infected yourself.

I wouldn't go to the hills lol, this virus is in the early stages so i have no idea why its already a PHASE 5, but now that it is expect drastic changes in your daily life as the government shuts things down

Haha, i can't tell if your joking or what but still.

Ive been totally worried about this, i mean like i have spent hours on google; trying to find ways to reassure myself.
So basically, its just like a really bad flu. Even if you don't take the 'tamiflu' (thats one of the drugs used to get rid of it) you can get rid of it safely in a few days. Also, the reason why people are dyeing is Pnumonia; also because the mexicans like in a like a gloomy cloud of disease generally. (this isn't me talking thats the news etc.)

So in Usa, Uk, where ever, as long as your not in like mexico city your pretty safe.

Sorry for my long explanation, it makes me feel better (:
