Death Cluster In El Paso Texas Raises H1N1 Pandemic Concerns

The recent spike in pneumonia and influenza (P&I) deaths in El Paso, Texas has raised
pandemic concerns.  The 19 deaths in week 14 was one shy of the highest week for
El Paso in the past 15 years, and the 24 deaths in week 15 set a new weekly
record.  Moreover, the 43 deaths in the two weeks were well above the record of
17 deaths for weeks 14 and 15.  The recently confirmed H1N1 death in El Paso provides additional support for the linkage of this cluster to the H1N1 deaths across the border in Juarez in Chihuahua, Mexico, as do reports that one of the first cases in Juarez was an El Pasoan, as noted above.

The historic spike in fatal cases comes at a time when the flu season is winding down in Texas and Chihuahua and raises pandemic concerns that a more lethal variant will become dominant.

    H1N1 is a very real and dangerous threat. I have personally experienced a strain of this virus which I contracted in August 2010 and it is a killer. It comes on fast and strong and is lethal. If your health is poor you probably won’t make it through this.

    If your health is good and you have someone attending to you around the clock keeping you cool when you are hot and keeping you warm when you are cold and administering medicine, love and care you might pull through.

    I almost died. I came within a inch of my life. Scary.

    I contracted H1N1 in a major Metropolitan area, what city it was doesnt matter. Stay away from the big cities because they have airports. Many thousands of People pass through Airports en route from other Countries, Cities, etc each day. That’s how this thing gets around.

    Stay away form the big hubs and Your chances are much better that You won’t encounter this threat or other some of the other deadly viruses. They are out there. Be warned.
