Health Officials Say Outbreak at New York City School Likely Swine Flu

I didn't want to report on this yet because it's still evolving and I for one hate when the Lame Stream Media jumps on a story before it has all it's facts and ducks in a row. But the Uncooperative husband/radio show host wants this brought out.

From The AP:

NEW YORK — At least eight students at a New York City high school probably have human swine influenza, but health officials said Saturday they don't know for sure whether they have the same virus that has killed scores of people in Mexico. At least two cases of the flu have been confirmed in Kansas.

A strain of the flu has killed as many as 68 people and sickened more than 1,000 across Mexico. The World Health Organization chief said Saturday the strain has "pandemic potential" and it may be too late to contain a sudden outbreak.

New York health officials said more than 100 students at the private St. Francis Preparatory School, in Queens, had come down with a fever, sore throat and other aches and pains in the past few days. Some of their relatives have also been ill.

New York City Health Commissioner Thomas Frieden said nose and throat swabs had confirmed that eight students had influenza type A, indicating probable cases of swine flu, but the exact subtypes were still unknown.

Samples had been sent to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta for more testing. Results were expected on Sunday.

Now, how in God's beautiful green earth could this ever come into The United States Of America. Hummmmm, wait for it, wait for it, Could It Be Those Wonderful Illegal Aliens that are cleaning the schools, in Queens, watching the children of Queens, or maintaining the lawns of our region. The CDC is now scrambling to investigate. Oh no, say it's not so, I'm a racist. No I'm pragmatic; yea folks look that one up, he,he,he.
