The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday it was too late to contain the swine flu outbreak in the United States.
CDC acting director Dr. Richard Besser told reporters in a telephone briefing it was likely too late to try to contain the outbreak, by vaccinating, treating or isolating people.
“There are things that we see that suggest that containment is not very likely,” he said.
At least 8 cases of H1N1 have been identified in California and Texas.
It’s not like some that don’t like America very much haven’t thought of using Mexico to launch the attack or use the lax border security to sneak it in…and the fact that a congressional panel has been discussing this heavily and have information that was released in Dec 2008 that the threat is very real and not far off. Now we have a threat that there is no vaccine for? This is all too suspect to one who has done as much research as I have.
