H1N1 Swine Flu mutations may have reached the United States.
Reports in Iowa and North Carolina have recently raised concerns that the deadly H1N1 Swine Flu mutations found in Ukraine and Norway have reached the United States.
H1N1 Swine Flu Mutations Reported in Iowa and North Carolina
Commenting on a dramitc spike in H1N1 deaths in Iowa, Dr. Gregory Schmunk told KCCI news, doctors in Iowa have recently reported seeing very heavy, wet hemorrhagic lungs, lungs with a lot of blood in them in H1N1 patients. Reports such as this have health experts concerned that the deadly Ukraine H1N1 has begun to spread to the states.
In North Carolina, a report of Tami flu-resistant H1N1 swine flu has raised questions about the ability of health care workers to combat H1N1 if there truly is a pandemic.
WHO Confirms H1N1 Mutations in Ukraine and Norway
The World Health Organization confirmed last week that an H1N1 mutation had been discovered in Ukraine and the same mutation has shown up in Norway. In addition to WHO reports, Hong Kongs Department of Health has also confirmed a similar mutation in a H1N1 flu virus sample. According to reports, this H1N1 mutation involved a receptor binding domain change, and it is apparently causing the H1N1 virus to become much more dangerous.
Other reports have alluded to the possibility of a deliberate mutation by the pharmaceutical company Baxter International, manufacturer of H1N1 vaccines.
H1N1 Swine Flu similar to 1918 Spanish Flu
Doctors in Ukraine have been reporting that victims of H1N1 there are experiencing violent hemorrhaging in their lungs. Temperatures inside the lungs of patients in Ukraine have been reported to be as high as 135 degrees Fahrenheit. As the patients near death, their lungs reportedly become as black as charcoal and literally begin to disintegrate. Doctors have reported similar findings in some victims in Iowa.
The current H1N1 outbreak is strikingly similar to the 1918 Spanish flu. Both strains are from the H1N1 family, both viruses have the same mutation and the hemorrhagic deaths that victims are experiencing in the Ukraine are very close to the types of deaths described of the victims of the 1918 Spanish flu.
According to Wikipedia a description of the 1918 Spanish Flu symptoms, One of the most striking of the complications was hemorrhage from mucous membranes, especially from the nose, stomach, and intestine. Bleeding from the ears and petechial hemorrhages in the skin also occurred. The majority of deaths were from bacterial pneumonia, a secondary infection caused by influenza, but the virus also killed people directly, causing massive hemorrhages and edema in the lung.
Tami Flu Resistant H1N1 Spreading
Additional concerns have arisen regarding recent reports confirming that a Tami flu-resistant H1N1 is spreading. It has been discovered in Wales and also has been reported in North Carolina.
Posted below is one of the very few mainstream media video reports we have about the black lung flu that is ravaging Ukraine
"There are fears that H1N1 has now mutated and resembles the Spanish flu virus that killed more than 50 million people at the beginning of the 20th century. Ukrainian doctors say the victims lungs are as black as charcoal. This prompts fresh concern that the swine flu virus has taken a deadly new form."
