Oh no the swine!

If you haven’t heard yet it’s time you did and prepared yourself to protect you and your family.

Video below from April 24th see further down for update on this virus.

The swine flu is stretching across countries just as fast as the air we breathe can blow.  The news is all the buzz about this and I think we really need to pay attention. As I woke up this morning to look at the news a school in Elyria, Ohio has been closed due to the swine flu. A 23 month old toddler has died from the swine flu in Texas and before it gets better the CDC is saying it is going to get worst with more cases showing up everyday and more deaths are sure to be reported before it gets better.

The acting director of the CDC, Richard Besser in collaboration with the new director of the federal government Health and Human Services Department, Kathleen Sebelius at to alerting, educating and supplying the means for the American people to get the help needed to combat this strain of influenza.

from today about the swine flu virus

Taking samples for Swin Flu testing

Reports of the near pandemic stem from Mexico and they are telling Americans unless needed do not travel to Mexico. There are some preventive measures that can be taken such as:

Wash your hands

Cover you nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough

Don’t go to work, school and daycare center etc if you are sick.

We are being urged to stay home if at all possible.

These are purely preventive measures and are no substitution for having the medication to combat the swine flu should you feel you are at risk or feeling ill.

What I do appreciate as an American citizen is that both agencies have met with President Obama and are aggressively working on this with inoculations, education, and preventative measures to prevent further contamination.

We are in for a journey as we all know there are cases that have not been reported while the strain is continuously being spread. Mr. Besser states it will get worse over the next days before it gets better. They are aware and working aggressively to get the help to those that need it.

Governor Schwarzenegger has authorized a statewide emergency for California pertaining to the swine flu. Cuba has restricted all flights in and out of Cuba for the next 24-48 hrs. Congress has passed a 1.5 billion dollar bill for the state of emergency funding to help combat this condition.

My advice is to stay updated via the media, internet as well as listening to President Obama’s address to the American people tonight @ 8 PM EST.

Symptoms of this strain of flu range from fever, to coughing and fatigue.

Both websites the Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) have placed updates, guidelines, and reports of infected states on their websites. We are urged to pay attention and keep updated via the websites or the media for status reports.

Inoculations are being dispatched to the states that have report known cases of the swine flu they are the priority right now as stipulated by both agencies. More vaccines are also being fabricated as I write this.

Listening to a new break with Federal Government Health and Human Services director Kathleen Sebelius. There has now been an report of another school outbreak in New York.

Protect and educate yourselves and may God help us through this.

Hello Sunshine the Earth says, “Hello”

Hello sunshine the earth says, “Hello.” This couldn’t be a more appropriate statement said by Willie Wonka  in the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with Johnny Depp playing Willie Wonka.  I just loved the movie but his statement although quite bizarre seems to fit today being that it is Earth Day!

Happy Earth day to all earthlings! What a day to thank the earth for sustaining our lives. The earth gives so much of itself in resources, minerals and our well being it is not just enough to celebrate today but everyday. We can do so much by starting off small to conserve our energy and resources to replenish the earth.
