    Whoop, whoop....I love a good flu pandemic, keeps me employed.
    Goodness, so far this flu doesn't sound as bad as something like some of those respiratory syncytial virus that go around and no one gets all excited about trying to stop the spread of them. I knew a couple who lost their heathy 18 month old to one of those and that winter me and my friend were so very sick and she ended up in the hospital with pneumonia. There's always bad stuff that can go around in the season it happens.

    Here is an interesting observation from one epidemiologist's blog:

    From: Aetiology: Swine flu--deja vu all over again?

    Back in 2007, I wrote about an outbreak of swine influenza from an Ohio county fair. The peer-reviewed paper analyzing the swine influenza isolated from that outbreak has just recently come out.
    ...
    According to her analyses, the Ohio pig isolates are the most closely related to the new Texas and California human isolates.
    ...
    So what it looks like to me is that this isn't a *new* reassortant virus, but is closely related to one that had already been identified in swine--and that had already caused an outbreak in humans right here in the US.

    The Ohio State University Medical Center is releasing the following statement this evening (4/29). We want to make sure you received this before it is released to the local news.

    The Ohio State University Medical Center provided treatment to a patient who was diagnosed with probable swine influenza A (H1N1) virus, which is pending confirmation at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The patient is an employee of the Medical Center who contracted the virus outside the workplace. The patient responded well to treatment and is being discharged this evening.

    OSU Medical Center staff followed all recommended precautions to prevent the spread of the illness to others. Individuals who had contact with the patient prior to admission are being notified. The Medical Center is providing prophylactic/preventive medication to those individuals, in accordance with standard CDC recommendations.

    The Medical Centerís normal patient visitation schedule remains unchanged. The hospital continues to urge all visitors and staff to follow infection control steps including covering your mouth and nose if you have a cough or sneeze, and not visit patients if you are ill. Frequent use of waterless hand sanitizers is also recommended.

    OSU Medical Center is working in collaboration with the CDC, Ohio Department of Health, and Columbus Public Health and following all appropriate guidelines.

    For more information on swine influenza, go to CDC - Influenza (Flu) | Swine Influenza (Flu).

    We will provide updates in the following days through e-mail and the university emergency web site Business and Finance :: default.

    Shit just got real.

    I can understand the registar's concern. I suspect he's been wanting to impliment those rules for a while. He has to be more careful than most, as he has dealings with immunocomprimised patients. Admittly I thought it was an odd reaction for a doctor.
    Protocol women (sorry, personal nickname) is however one of those people who believes everything that's written down. You should see her head spin when she reads contridictary reports at work.
    I agree about worse things being out there, so I reckon it's a smoke screen for something else.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
    Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.
