October 25 Flu Update--HHS Secretary Says Flu Could Hit US Next Year

Secretary Leavitt says bird flu might hit US next year.

A WHO official said on a radio talk show that personal stockpiles of Tamiflu might help families survive.

Later the same day, in the face of soaring personal sales, Roche has suspended Tamiflu sales.

Indonesia has confirmed its fourth flu death, and China is reporting a new outbreak in Eastern Anhui.'
Here's an official press release on the Indonesian situation.

Bird Flu has hit Germany, with dead birds being tested. The only question is whether it is H5N1.

Bloomberg says 30 nations are looking to loosen their patent laws to get Tamiflu produced--intersting on an economic, and a viral front. Is there too much focus on something the virus can literally just step around?

USA Today has the same story.

Concern is beginning to focus on the global trade in birds as a flu carrier, thanks to the parrot incident in Britain.

Thailand is planning a national flu workshop.

Canada hosts flu summit, and the PM speaks.

The British delegate to the same conference says people should "not panic."

The US and Canada have re-stated that they are committed to cooperation in fighting the bird flu.

If it wasn't clear before, it is now. Migratory birds are carrying bird flu.

Dr. Walter Boyce, is the director of the Wildlife Health Center at the University of California, Davis. He says the migrating birds in the Pacific flyway on the west coast of the United States often began their journey as far away as Siberia.

"Clearly bird flu is on the move. Our concern is wild birds as they migrate, might carry the bird flu with them. Our goal is to detect what viruses they are carrying and basically have an early warning that something might be getting ready to happen"


Increasingly, African states are stepping up import bans and surveillance programs to monitor bird flu. One nation where migratory birds have already arrived is testing fowl for birds.

Hong Kong is preparing for the flu--based on what it learned from SARS.

China is getting mixed reviews for handling the bird flu.

Here's the official Chinese press version of the nation's efforts on bird flu.


Helen Branswell on Canada increasing its Tamiflu stock--and adding Relenza as well.

Relenza - the trade name for the drug zanamivir - is sold by GlaxoSmithKline. Some antiviral experts believe the drug may be better for some people, including pregnant women, than Tamiflu because it goes directly to the site of infection and less drug is absorbed into the blood stream.

CIDRAP has this on the FAO going to Indonesia to help "jump start" lethargic flu efforts there.

A reader emailed this link to me--its Martin Luther on the ethics of fleeing in the face of disease--in his case, the plague, but with lessons applicable to today.

Wendy Orent, a favorite target in the flu blogosphere, had this to write in the LA Times. She is in the "don't worry" school of thought. Check it out for yourself.

Effect Measure takes on the Orent article...he doesn't think much of it.

Recombinomics has this indigenous report that says that 1,134 Thais are suspected of having bird flu. If true, this would clearly have major implications.

Recombinomics has news of a suspicious human case in Portugal, which would be a first in Europe.

HPAI confirmed in Hunan.

ProMed on the private bird importer who was importing the dead parrot, and on news from Thailand.

ProMed with a report on Germany.

Crofsblogs on North Korea reporting that it is fighting the bird flu.

Pixels never have flu nor can they fly. They are totally no danger to anyone. They are safe. They do not even like eggs...

The Ten million dollar pixel website does something NO other ONE million pixel web site can! - The'll Give TWO million dollar away!!
Just recently we reported about The Tenmilliondollarwebsite.com. The site is a copycat of The Million Dollar Homepage by a 21-year-old British entrepreneur Alex Tew. The Ten million dollar is rapidly evolving into the fastest growing 'pixel' web site online. They now offer $2.000.000,00 to the largest advertiser on their site.

THE NETHERLANDS, October, 2005 - The tenmilliondollarwebsite.com takes pixel advertising several big steps further. As you can see on http://tenmilliondollarwebsite.com/blog The site had more than 100,000.00 pageviews in 6 weeks being online!! We now have an Alexa page rank far into the 100.000 says Walter proud. He and Janwillem, two guys from The Netherlands are the owners of the site.

They want to live their dream and start an own (Internet) marketing, hosting and consultant business, using the proceedings of the site... They have without a doubt the most valuable name...

To boost the value of your TROPI (Traffic Return On Pixel Investment we learned) they organized a huge and unique promotion!
Asking about this special promotion, Janwillem says: As said before, we can do something no other million dollar website can do: We are giving away more than $2.000.000,00!!

We will give one of our advertisers $2.000.000,00 ( two million dollars) as soon as our site is filled for 50%! The best thing about it is: Nobody needs to participate in any kind of lottery to have a chance to become a millionaire.

We asked the guys from Holland who will get the money then and what they have to do for it;. It is simple, they replied. To win this $2.000.000,00, you'll need to become the largest advertiser on our site and we'll personally give you $2.000.000,00 (two million dollars). We will do so as soon as our site is filled for 50%!!

On top of this, we'll choose five of our advertisers at random, no matter what size or time they are with us, and reward them each with $100.000,00! Also after the site is filled for 50%! So, in fact, we are giving away $2,500.000,00! Part of that could be yours. All you need to do is buy some pixels on our site!

Walter tells us that he knew their site would become a success and now he predicts this promotion will boost the site in the top five movers and shakers!!' We are here to set records! And we will. This means great exposure for all of our advertisers! We have had people boosting their sales figures mainly by the visitors they get from us!

A great stunt like this will certainly attract oceans of curious and click happy people who will be visiting our site. Who would not want to get $2.000.000,00 in cash from the ten million dollar website? Just for being the largest advertiser on the only TEN million dollar website!

Both guys smile when they say: We'll invite anyone to buy pixels and have a chance to change their lives!
Wow, Even if you would buy advertisement for $1.000.000,00 you'd still gain a full 100%
Remember! Your $100,00 pixel friends placed on our site could mean you gain at least $100.000,00!!!

We are no students, and we are not looking to pay for college. Yet, when the site is successful enough, we would love to pay and we will pay for people who never had college or even seen a school before in their lives. We have made plans when the site reaches a certain level of success, says Janwillem.
