British scientists make H1N1 flu strain for vaccine
Thu May 28, 2009 8:58am EDT

LONDON, May 28 (Reuters) - British scientists have produced a strain of H1N1 flu virus which could be used for large scale production of a vaccine, health authorities said on Thursday.

The virus strain is being made available to the pharmaceutical industry and other flu laboratories, the Health Protection Agency (HPA) said, describing it as "a crucial step towards large scale production of a vaccine against swine flu".

Some 13,000 people across the world have been confirmed as infected with H1N1 flu -- often referred to as swine flu -- with at least 50 countries affected. It has killed 95 people, according to officially confirmed figures from the World Health Organisation.

Britain has 185 confirmed cases, said the HPA, an independent body whose remit includes the monitoring of infectious diseases.

It said the vaccine was produced by its National Institute for Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC) -- one of several laboratories around the world belonging to a World Health Organisation (WHO) network racing to produce a strain suitable for manufacturing vaccine.

NIBSC director Stephen Inglis said WHO network laboratories in the United States and Australia were "also making good progress and we expect there soon to be a number of possible strains to use for large scale manufacture of swine flu vaccine. (Reporting by Kate Kelland. Editing by Jon Hemming)

Hi Monkeys....in trying to see if cases that are reported in one State are close by, I found this link and report that shows the cases by County (link is in report).  You may want to also check your area for the same type report.

Swine Flu Now Reported in All 50 States
 
TUESDAY, June 2 (HealthDay News) -- Swine flu cases have now been reported in all 50 states, with the total number of people infected probably surpassing 200,000, U.S. health officials said Monday.

"It's accurate to say that there are probably several hundred thousand people that have been impacted by this flu," said Tom Skinner, a spokesman for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "But that's in line with what we would see with seasonal influenza if we had the number of cases we are reporting right now."

And while the outbreak continues to wane, new cases will continue to emerge, Skinner said.

On Monday, the CDC was reporting a total of 10,053 cases in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, including 17 deaths. The agency has said in the past that confirmed cases of H1N1 swine flu represent about one in 20 of actual cases, bringing the total number of cases to about 200,000.



Infections with the H1N1 swine flu virus continue to be mild and recovery is fairly quick, as is the case with seasonal flu, officials said. Testing has found that the virus remains susceptible to two common antiviral drugs, Tamiflu and Relenza, according to the CDC.

What has been different about the swine flu outbreak, Skinner said, is that activity picked up late in the typical flu season. "What was unusual was that in late March into April and late May we saw activity at a higher-than-expected level," he said
.


Dr. Anne Schuchat, the CDC's interim deputy director for science and public health program, said last week that the newly identified H1N1 swine flu virus continues to behave much like seasonal H1N1 viruses, which may partly explain why this flu strain affects more younger people. "Seasonal H1N1 often causes more disease in younger people, compared with the other strains that can be more common in older people," she said.

Some older people may have partial immunity to the H1N1 swine flu virus because of possible exposure to another H1N1 flu strain that circulated prior to 1957.

Schuchat said a vaccine for the swine flu virus could be ready in October, if research and testing proceed on pace this summer. Candidate viruses have been shipped to vaccine manufacturers, she said.

It's still not clear whether a swine flu vaccine is needed, Schuchat said. Any decision to move forward would be based on several factors, including the severity and spread of the virus and whether there's a safe and effective vaccine, she said.

During the next few months, scientists will be looking to see if the swine flu virus mutates or becomes resistant to antiviral medications, or is more easily spread among people, Schuchat said. The flu season is winding down in the Northern Hemisphere but is just beginning in the Southern Hemisphere.

Schuchat said there's no way to tell now if the H1N1 virus will be more virulent when -- and if -- it returns to the Northern Hemisphere with the approach of winter.


The World Health Organization said Monday that 53 countries have reported 15,510 cases of H1N1 swine flu, including 99 deaths, most of them in Mexico, where the outbreak began.

WHO considers move to pandemic phase 6 for H1N1 virus

Story Highlights
World Health Organization considers increasing pandemic alert level to phase 6

Designation does not reflect the severity of the disease, but how widespread it is

Phase 6 is highest on pandemic alert system and means global pandemic

CNN Medical Producer

 
 
 
(CNN) -- The World Health Organization announced Tuesday it is still considering increasing its pandemic alert level to phase 6 because of growing worldwide cases of the H1N1 virus, or swine flu.

 
WHO considers raising the pandemic alert level to 6 as cases of H1N1 increase worldwide.

 
"Globally, we are at phase 5, but we are nearing phase 6," said Dr. Keiji Fukuda, WHO's Assistant Director General. "As this continues to spread internationally, some countries are moving from isolated to sustained community spread."

Phase 6 is a declaration that many member countries have long feared could mean economic disaster. It is the highest on the WHO's pandemic alert system, and is described by the organization as a global pandemic.

Fukuda was quick to remind journalists that the designation does not reflect the severity of the disease, but how widespread it is.

"Our overall assessment of severity is moderate," he said, "because although the overall number of serious and fatal cases is relatively limited ... we really don't have a full handle on the number of people with serious illness."

Fukuda said nearly 19,000 cases of the H1N1 virus have been reported in 64 countries, resulting in 117 deaths

A/H1N1 flu situation is escalating in Australia 
Last Updated(Beijing Time):2009-06-03 09:16
 
With more and more new lab-confirmed cases of the A/H1N1 flu found in the Asia-Pacific region, the flu situation in Australia is worse with over 300 confirmed cases in the country on Thursday.
Australian health authorities have confirmed that more than 300 people have been diagnosed with the flu and all states and territories are now affected by the virus.

The number of cases diagnosed in Victoria has now risen to 212,Queensland has reported 20 cases, New South Wales 57, South Australia 7, the ACT 4 and Tasmania, Western Australia and the Northern Territory have one case each.

Queensland Health Minister Paul Lucas told the parliament Tuesday it's inevitable there will be deaths in Australia from the flu.

Lucas said that the A/H1N1 flu situation is escalating in Australia and the ultimate spread of it in greater numbers can hardly be stopped.

"Inevitably you expect to see deaths in Australia from swine flu," Lucas said.

What the Health is doing is slowing it and seeking to contain it and will continue to take every appropriate action to fight against it, said he.

He said around 1,000 to 3,000 Australians died each year from influenza.

The tally of confirmed A/H1N1 flu cases on the Chinese mainland has risen to 43 on Tuesday as four more people were confirmed infected with the virus while in Hongkong, Another three people were tested positive for the A/H1N1 virus on Tuesday, taking the number of confirmed cases in the city to 26, according to information from local health authorities.

In Thailand, Thai Public Health Ministry announced Tuesday that another Thai is confirmed to be infected by the A/H1N1 influenza virus, the fifth case in the country.

India has confirmed two more new cases. A 34-year-old woman and her five-year-old son from Tamil Nadu, southern India, who returned from the United States on May 28, have been confirmed to be infected with the A H1N1 influenza virus, said Indian health officials Tuesday.

In New Zealand, a child on a recent flight from North America has Influenza A/H1N1, bringing the number of confirmed cases in New Zealand to 10, the Health Ministry said on Tuesday.

Singapore confirmed its 8th case of Influenza A/H1N1 on Tuesday. According to the country's Health Ministry, the patient is a 15-year-old Singaporean boy who is studying in India. He travelled from India to Orlando and Atlanta on a school trip from May 17 to 31. He returned to Singapore from Atlanta via Mumbai on Singapore Airlines SQ421 on June 1.

Eight Stanford students test positive for swine flu
By Diana Samuels


Daily News Staff Writer

Updated: 06/03/2009 12:25:07 AM PDT


Eight Stanford University students have tested positive for swine flu, the university announced.

The Santa Clara County Public Health Department told the university last Friday that seven tests had come back positive for the H1N1 virus, and on Monday an eighth positive case was announced.

Some of the tests were more than two weeks old, and the students have either recovered or are on their way to recovering, a university statement said. None needed to be hospitalized or quarantined.

The students had typical flu symptoms, and there are no plans to change Stanford's graduation schedule or disrupt other activities.

"This H1N1 virus is really behaving very much like seasonal influenza," said Dr. Ira Friedman, director of the university's Vaden Health Center, in a phone interview Tuesday. "That's really determining our response."

All of the students live on campus, he said. Though the students and their residence halls are not being identified, the university says "there is no evidence of clustering in the residences."

The students were seen or treated at Stanford Hospital or Vaden. Vaden is seeing an unusually high number of students come in with flu-like symptoms, Friedman said.

"Usually at this time of the year the winter flu season would have tailed off," he said.

More cases could arise, Friedman said. The university is waiting for results from more tests, the Stanford statement said.

"The virus is still

circulating in the community," he said. "It's circulating nationwide, statewide and in our own community."
