Not to nit pik, krobbie, but Tamilflu is available as capsules or an oral suspension, but not a shot.


Another case of a little information being a dangerous thing. Thanks for correcting me on that. Obviously In had no idea and just assumed it was the same as my general flu vaccination ie. injection. Oops! :thumbleft:

Have now looked at Tamiflu web site and got the low-down.

According to a colleague who should know, this strain of flu is has a very old base and she thinks that the elderly will have built resistance to it, so Pattaya should be fine.

For those who enjoy freaking out, panicikng, and generally worrying about everything, the World Health Organization in the last few hours has ramped up the medical alert level to 5 . . . only one level below the highest, which would be a 6 ... i.e. an official world pandemic. << http://www.reuters.com/article/topNews/ ... 2820090429 >>

Apocolyptists (sp?), Bipolarists, and Revelationists please take note ... your ship is 'IN'.

From a Bloomberg News article (credit: John Lauerman):

"Q: Are there drugs that treat swine flu? A: Roche Holding AG’s Tamiflu and GlaxoSmithKline Plc’s Relenza both react against swine flu. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is releasing 25 percent of its stockpile of Tamiflu and Relenza, according to Secretary Janet Napolitano. Flu viruses sometimes develop resistance to antiviral drugs. The human form of H1N1 that’s currently circulating is resistant to Roche’s Tamiflu (not Relenza). If the two viruses were to exchange genes, the swine flu might become resistant, too."

Apocalyptists....but you were close.

The problem is that some governemnts are freaking out. It's reported that Indian health authorities are tracking down 500 British tourists there...because some British citizen went to Mexico and caught the flu? Seems to be an over-reaction..

And this from Bangkok Post:
"The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration has told district offices to work with operators of hotels and guest houses to step up surveillance of guests. Bangkok Deputy Governor Malinee Sukvejvorakij, in charge of medical and social development affairs, said City Hall's prime concerns were the Khao San and Sukhumvit areas where many guest houses cater to foreigners. Owners were urged to inform authorities if any guests showed signs of flu-like symptoms so that they could be brought in for medical checks."

So, if a farang has a runny nose he can be "brought in" for "medical checks"?

As a Mexican, I'm really disturbed by this non sense WHO/Media/Govt panic on this shit...

First, the stupid Mexican govt was mixing deaths and patients from normal flu (thousands died every year for that) with H1N1 deaths, and other illness.

Real death toll is now at 16, not like 170 as was originally reported. I can tell you that people are dying because subcultural Mexicans don't go to the fucking hospitals until they are really bad, and because health services are not good like in U.S. or Europe.

Measures to contain the virus are working. Yesterday only around 40 people were admitted in hospitals. Monday were almost 250. No one died in the last 24 hours in Mexico City and changes in the death toll are because laboratory tests are confirming H1N1 cases from already dead people.

I'm not in Mexico City were business are shutdown as a precaution, but in my state, in the Baja Peninsula, the panic broadcasted by CNN/BBC/FOX/NBC/Televisa/NYT are doing a big big damage to our tourism and to our economy, for only a dozen of deaths from a non-lethal virus that can be treated with tamilflu.

Right now, the CDC in Atlanta is saying that the virus is not so lethal as they worried.

But the damage is done. Media falsely said that the virus is from Mexico. Its a virus found in european and asian pigs, and first cases were reported in California and Texas.

Thanks to this, Mexicans are now discriminated all over the world, flights stopped, ignorants govts like Argentina and other 3rd world countries canceling flights like if it were a virus from the "28 days later" movie, etc. Egypt killing 400k pigs and more travel restrictions to us, like in Japan.

This is a real nightmare for me, because I like traveling, and all my plans are now in standby, awaiting, like in a house arrest... We are worried, but not in panic. This is not the end of the world, and we are walking on the street without surgical masks

Some clips from the blogs ...

www.checktheevidence.co.uk/cms/index.ph ... &Itemid=75

Many researchers have witnessed again the extreme unreliability of mainstream sources, due to their repeated distortion of facts and failure to properly investigate the background of breaking stories. As with the events of 9/11 and 7/7, the media have rapidly created a myth which has been seared into the public psyche using a set of clichéd images and ubiquitous – and often baseless - fear tactics


Irresponsible overreaction by the media (obvious at the beginning?)?, a pharmaceutical industry conspiracy (maybe)?.

Fizzling as we speak? HOPEFULLY! :bounce:
