Has The H1N1 Swine Flu Mutation That The WHO Has Confirmed In Ukraine And Norway Now Reached The United States?
Sunday, November 22, 2009 Posted by Shattered Paradigm
Up until recently, the H1N1 swine flu had not really been any more harmful than most other seasonal flus that regularly appear. However, that all changed a few days ago when the WHO confirmed that an H1N1 mutation had been detected in Ukraine. This mutation involved a receptor binding domain change, and it is apparently causing the H1N1 swine flu virus to become much more virulent.
One of the most prominent differences is that this mutation is apparently causing violent hemorrhaging in the lungs of the victims. Temperatures inside the lungs of dying patients have reached temperatures of up to 135 degrees Fahrenheit, and as the victims die their lungs literally turn to mush and become as black as charcoal.
Recently one doctor in Western Ukraine was quoted as saying the following about what the lungs of victims who have died from this H1N1 flu look like....
"We have carried out post mortems on two victims and found their lungs are as black as charcoal. They look like they have been burned. It’s terrifying."
This H1N1 mutation has caused a national crisis in Ukraine, but now the WHO has also confirmed that this mutation has shown up in Norway.
Norway's Institute of Public Health has acknowledged in a statement that this mutation "could possibly...cause more severe disease" because it apparently infects tissue deeper in the airway than normal.
But if that wasn't bad enough, now there is a report that patients are dying with similar symptoms from an H1N1 flu in Iowa.
Commenting on a spike in H1N1 deaths in Iowa, Dr. Gregory Schmunk told KCCI news that what doctors there are seeing "is very heavy, wet hemorrhagic lungs, lungs with a lot of blood in them."
That sounds exactly like what doctors are seeing in Ukraine, Norway and other countries neighboring Ukraine.
Not only that, but the similarities between this new outbreak and the 1918 Spanish flu are more than a little chilling. The following are just three of the key similarities between the two outbreaks.....
#1) Both the Spanish flu and the current swine flu are of the H1N1 variety.
#2) At least some varieties of the 1918 flu had the same mutation that is now appearing in the H1N1 swine flu.
#3) Both the Spanish flu and the current swine flu produce massive hemorrhaging in the lungs of their victims. In fact, if you read about the kind of gruesome deaths that 1918 pandemic flu victims experienced, they sound very similar to what victims in Ukraine have been experiencing.
It is estimated that the 1918 Spanish flu killed between 50 and 100 million people worldwide.
Has the H1N1 swine flu now mutated into a more virulent strain that could kill millions?
And if all of that was not troubling enough, a Tamiflu resistant strain of the H1N1 swine flu has now shown up in Wales.
But the mainstream media has said very, very little about these mutations. Apparently they are bored with talking about H1N1, but the truth is that if this mutation is as virulent as some infectious disease experts believe, then this could quickly become the most important news story of 2010.
So what does the future hold for H1N1?
Nobody knows for sure, but these latest developments certainly represent a turn for the worse. If you have any additional information about what is going on with H1N1 please let us know. As always, we invite and welcome your comments.....
