Someone Seal the Border

  • Mexico City closed schools across the metropolis of 20 million Friday after at least 16 people died and more than 900 others fall ill from what health officials suspect is a new strain of swine flu. World health officials worried that it could mark the start of a flu pandemic.

    The World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland said at least 57 have died in the outbreak, although it wasn't yet clear if this larger number of deaths was due to swine flu.

    "We are very, very concerned," said Thomas Abraham, a spokesman for the agency. "We have what appears to be a novel virus and it has spread from human to human." If international spread is confirmed, that meets WHO's criteria for raising the pandemic alert level, he added.
Seeing as how we have contact with dozens of people every single day, police should be extra cautious. You don't want to bring anything home you didn't leave for work with.

Seeing that the last 8 years the Border has been porous as ever & human traffic flows freely across it, it's just a matter of time the flu pandemic is brought right here to Chicago via these private bus companies that shuttle folks here on a weekly basis.

I've read that the incubation period for this flu virus is several days, and that people are contagious even when they don't appear to be sick. Worth goggling further detail, and posting it here. Also CDC said there was "nothing they could do" to contain the virus, given already wide-spread contamination by virus.

If this report is true...

The ordinance was designed this way. I believe Terrence Gainer helped Daley I write it up when Gainer was Corporation Counsel.

Ever see the early forms? One little tan card, not today's multi-part nightmare.

Did it every enter anyone's mind where the average person is supposed to get all the little photographs required now that the self-serve photo machines in the dime stores and so forth are all gone? Running around on buses (yes) all day just for that alone...

Of course, when (white) police desk personnel pretend that they can't find blank registration forms for (even clean-cut, white, middle-aged, working, North and Northwest Side) citizens...

I was right there. I saw this.

The forms were there, too -- and the guy got them only because "someone he knew" happened to walk by in the station.

A lot of coppers have told me, "I'll quit my job before I'll take people's guns."

Fork in the road.

Guys were bitching here that they were ashamed to participate in a pedestrian-safety sting.

Let's hear how you feel about doing this.

Female cop in 012 hospitalized with type A influenza last week.... I think it's already here!

There are three types of influenza, depending on their activity: type A, which is usually the cause of outbreaks; type B, which is linked to sporadic cases, and type C, which rarely causes disease reactions..

Swine influenza virus (referred to as SIV) refers to influenza cases that are caused by Orthomyxoviruses endemic to pig populations. SIV strains isolated to date have been classified either as Influenzavirus C or one of the various subtypes of the genus Influenzavirus A.[1]

Swine flu infects people every year and is found typically in people who have been in contact with pigs, although there have been cases of person-to-person transmission.[2] Symptoms include fever, disorientation, stiffness of the joints, vomiting, and loss of consciousness ending in death.[3] Swine influenza is known to be caused by influenza A subtypes H1N1,[4] H1N2,[4] H3N1,[5] H3N2,[4] and H2N3.[6]

In swine, three influenza A virus subtypes (H1N1, H3N2, and H1N2) are circulating throughout the world.

ABC News tonight-- There are something like 600 flights per day between Mexico and the U.S. The biggest border crossing point has something like 80,000 per day entering -- unimpeded.

They showed what we're doing -- officials standing there wearing masks looking stern as the crowds flood past them -- as contrasted by the Chinese, who, since the SARS outbreak, have set up thermal imaging cameras to scan arriving airport crowds!

Anyone over a preset temperature shows up red on the display and is physically grabbed out of the crowd and put into quarantine.

Is it OK to say that I was tired of Mexico before this even started? It's wearin' me out, man. I do not want to go to Mexico, and I also do not want the place I live turned into Mexico. I have a language and culture and heritage of my own that I rather like.

Mexico has gotten to be like the little brother you get stuck with for the day -- you can't have any fun because you have to watch him -- and, on top of it, it's not even your own brother. I am tired of buying it ice cream and being nice, and I don't want its sniffles, either.

Oh, yes, I am sick. It's obviously important to our policy-makers that I be sick.

Don't know if it's just that changing-weather kind of cold from the soaking I took the other day, or the start of something worse.

It doesn't matter anyway, because --

Mexico faces criticism over swine flu response
By NIKO PRICE, Associated Press Writer – 2 mins ago

MEXICO CITY – Two weeks after the first known swine flu death, Mexico still hasn't given medicine to the families of the dead. It hasn't determined where the outbreak began or how it spread. And while the government urges anyone who feels sick to go to hospitals, feverish people complain ambulance workers are scared to pick them up.

A portrait is emerging of a slow and confused response by Mexico to the gathering swine flu epidemic. And that could mean the world is flying blind into a global health storm.

Despite an annual budget of more than $5 billion, Mexico's health secretary said Monday that his agency hasn't had the resources to visit the families of the dead. That means doctors haven't begun treatment for the population most exposed to swine flu, and most apt to spread it...

Give yourself a break, twinkle toes.

A virus doesn't give a shit what color you are, what language you speak, what country you came from, or what your particular political sensitivities are.

Since this epidemic has broken out in fucking Mexico, it's only common sense to avoid coming in contact with anything which has been in Mexico recently, which includes those Mexicans who've either just arrived or might have been in close physical contact with those who've just arrived.

If this developing epidemic were to have started in fucking Canada, we'd be smart to avoid coming in close physical contact with Canadians.

Playing the race card ain't gonna protect you from getting infected.

Avoiding close physical contact with anything or anyone Mexican just might.

But you go right ahead and pretend that political correctness will keep you healthy.

MEXICO CITY — Cuba suspended flights to and from Mexico on Tuesday, becoming the first country to impose a travel ban, as the fast-moving swine flu strain extended its reach overseas and in the United States. World health officials in Geneva said they believed the virus appears to be establishing itself in communities and be able to produce larger outbreaks outside Mexico...

I was born in this city -- it is my home. What about "creating an uncomfortable situation" for me by giving me a possibly fatal disease that originated from some kid crawling around a pig pen?

The Department of Homeland Security has not issued an order saying our employees cannot wear masks. The health of our employees is of utmost importance to us. And today we are issuing department-wide guidance to our workforce," DHS spokeswoman Sara Kuban told FOX News.
...
Kuban was responding to a claim made Thursday that The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Homeland Security issued a guideline banning masks because they look too intimidating.
There is another story out that a white house aide had the swine flu, was sent home on a commerical jet 12 days ago, and they have yet to notify any of the passengers on that plane. He managed to infect 3 other people that they know of already.

The CPD tried to get them to cancel the immigrant March tomorrow. The organizer said it was racist and the city said that request wasn't official. They would never think of violating anyone's first amendment rights.

So first amendment trumps public health.

Marvelous.....

I heard it on WBBM 780 this afternoon but can't find the story on their website.
