Quote:
An Ontario man has contracted a case of influenza A H1N1 – commonly known as the swine flu.
Ontario’s ministry of health announced the diagnosis on Tuesday, stating the adult man became ill after contact with pigs. He is being treated and monitored in a southwestern Ontario hospital.
Dr. Arlene King, Ontario's chief medical officer of health, said the case was discovered by the province’s health surveillance system, adding that human H1N1 cases were rare but not unheard of.
“I would like to reassure Ontarians that this variant influenza virus rarely spreads from animals to humans. Subsequent human-to-human transmission is also rare,” King said in a statement.
“I would also like to stress that this is not a food safety issue; the consumption of properly cooked pork continues to be safe. Proper cooking of meats, including pork, kills all bacteria and viruses.”
King added that hand washing is the best way to prevent infections, and said Ontarians should be sure to get their flu shots.

It hit the news not too long ago that people who got the seasonal flu shot a few years ago actually caught the flu more severely than the unvaccinated.

Last I heard, it still has not been determined why this occurred.

I'm not getting a flu shot until they (virologists, Pharma) know what the fuck they are doing.

We haven't had a public, large scale panic for a bit. Should be interesting.

Panic? The guy got swine flu from a swine. It would be a surprise if he got it from a dog, but a pig? About as surprising as getting VD from a prostitute. This has been happening since we started farming animals. Nothing to worry about.

But then again, the media can ignore convenient facts to create the readership they want I guess.
