WHO..... Pandemic Stage 5
...................................................
 
 

All countries should immediately activate their pandemic preparedness plans. Countries should remain on high alert for unusual outbreaks of influenza-like illness and severe pneumonia. 

 
It is possible that the full clinical spectrum of this disease goes from mild illness to severe disease. We need to continue to monitor the evolution of the situation to get the specific information and data we need to answer this question.

From past experience, we also know that influenza may cause mild disease in affluent countries, but more severe disease, with higher mortality, in developing countries.

No matter what the situation is, the international community should treat this as a window of opportunity to ramp up preparedness and response.

 
 
.....................
 
Please know what to do for your family in case of Pan Flu.

    Dead housemaid tests positive for bird flu

    Nation News - Thursday, January 29, 2009

    Indra Harsaputra, THE JAKARTA POST, SURABAYA

    A housemaid who died from a lung infection at Dr. Soetomo General Hospital in Surabaya over the weekend was infected with Avian flu, the hospital revealed Wednesday.

    Chairman of the Press Forum at state-run hospital Urip Murtedjo said Sunday that a blood sample taken before the victim's death and sent to the Health Ministry had tested positive for Avian Flu.

    The victim, identified only as S, and who is believed to have worked as a housemaid for a family in the city, was transferred from to the hosptical from a private hospital last Friday after suspicions were raised that she was suffering from the fatal disease.

    "Initially, we did not know but remained suspicious of the patient's symptoms. After her death, the hospital's medical team sent a sample of her blood to the Health Ministry and the laboratory test result [confirmed] she was infected with the H5N1 virus," he told The Jakarta Post.

    Urip said the hospital's medical team had doubted she was infected with the disease after learning the patient was not exposed to poultry at her work place or in her home village in Lumajang.

    "This case has received a serious level of attention from the medical team because it is a new phenomenon," Urip said.

    Chairul Anwar Nidom, a bird flu specialist at Airlangga University in Surabaya, said it would be foolish to rule out the possibility of an endemic in the city, citing recent outbreaks in Jakarta, West Java, North Sumatra and Banten.

    He said his team would continue to research the path the virus was taking across the archipelago to determine which areas were vulnerable.

    The Power of The Turks
    ..............................................................
     
     
     
    Explaining his position, the Turkish Prime Minister said that during his remarks in various
     
    deliberations, he underlined the message of peace, whereas Peres rose his voice from
     
    time to time and spoke in a manner and style which is not in line with the Davos spirit of
     
    mutual understanding.

    article-

    Turkish PM storms out of Gaza debate at WEF
    Press Trust of India
    Friday, January 30, 2009, (Davos)
     
    ...........................................................................
     
     
     
    "I am Not The Leader of A Tribe"
     
     
    Obviously the Turkish Prime Minister felt he was not being heard...
     
     
    or
     
     
    He used that platform to go off on Israel... and says, he won't be back?
    ...................................................................................................................
     
     
     
    If only the Turks had used all their power to assist the Palestinians years ago.
     
     
    (along with all the very wealthy Arab countries)  It may not have come to this sad state.

    The Coming Obama-Press War
    It's inevitable.

    ...His administration may stay on message and never leak, but it won't be the only circus in town. Few Cabinet secretaries,
    members of Congress, federal bureaucrats, federal grantees, soldiers and sailors, or others drawing a salary
    from the U.S. Treasury get the love or respect from the president that they think they're owed. They'll leak because
    it will be in their interest to leak, and the press will feast.
     
     
    When they leak, he'll do what every president has done. He'll flip out.

    The Fix

    Excerpt-
     
    Because of Obama's reach -- 13 million email addresses is a stunning number -- these sorts of tactics
    (Daschle? Daschle who?) have the potential to quickly re-focus the American public on the economic stimulus
    package rather than allow people to linger on the Daschle withdrawal and what it says about Treasury
    Secretary Tim Geithner and the president's judgment more broadly.

    All of that is not to say the media doesn't have a role to play. But, Obama has a unique

    ability to end-run the media filter and use technology to make it stick.
