H1S1 Virus in My Neighborhood

H1S1 Virus in My Neighborhood

Today, a telephone call came asking if the school in my neighborhood is under the H1S1 virus list – – because if it is, the school might be closed and it is time to go to Mexico for a vacation. So I googled. . . Here is what I found at bloomberg.com.

Ang butakal nga swine naa na giod sa Queens! Gipanggukod na ang mga anay. HALA KA DIHA!

Headline: New York City Closes Six Public Schools for Swine Flu (Update2)

May 15 (Bloomberg) — New York City closed three(3) more public schools today, raising the number of shuttered schools to six(6) in a renewed outbreak of swine flu that first sickened hundreds of residents about three weeks ago.

The New York health department today closed two schools in the borough of Queens and one in Brooklyn for five days after 128 students reported flu-like illnesses that could be swine flu, known as H1N1, the department said in an e-mailed statement. Three other schools were closed yesterday after health authorities found “unusually high levels” of flu symptoms and a male assistant principal at one of the schools was hospitalized in critical condition, New York’s first serious swine flu illness, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.

New York City was the first area in the U.S. last month to report more than a dozen cases of swine flu that has now reached 35 countries and sickened more than 7,500 people worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. City health authorities said May 1 they would test only those New Yorkers seriously ill with flu-like symptoms because most local cases of the H1N1 influenza were no more severe than seasonal flu. At the time, Bloomberg said more than 1,000 people in the city may have been infected with the virus. Read the rest of the article.

    hahaha! galing ako sa isa mong blog, para sana dun ako eepal,mas hindi pala ako makaka-comment dun. naalala ko tuloy nung nagte-training ako nun, puro bisaya mga kasama ko sa kwarto. kapag nag-uusap sila, nakatingin lang ako.

    minsan nasusundan ko sila, pero madalas hindi.

    may blog naman ako, Kapampangan. Masarap din naman kasi sumulat sa sarili mong wika e.

    ano bang location mo ngayon?

    sabi ni Jan nasa New York ka daw? You’ll be going to Mexico for vacation?

    Sensya na ha, am not familiar with the geography. Malapit lang ba yun sa location mo?

    Honestly, I am really hoping that this swine flu scare is just an overrated hype… it’s really scary.

      Sir Roy! What an honor! Salamat sa pagbisita. hahaha! ang ibig ko pong sabihin sa Mexico ay ung Mexico, Oswego County dito lang sa New York. Heto po ang link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexico_(village),_New_York

      Buti na lang hindi mo sinabing “ARE U GONE MAD?” Why in the hell should you go to the place where all these hyped has started?

      In fact, baka ma quarantine pa tayo pag balik lalo na na we already have a casualty.

      Dedbol na po kasi ung assistant principal galing vacation sa Mexico City.

      How far Mexico City from New York City? Around 2086 miles (3357 km)

      I agree with you na overrated hype itong H1S1 na ito. pero pag may casualty na kasi then that is alarming.

      Ang Mayor ayon nagpakitang gilas na. Alam mo na politics at may balak mag run uli this coming election ang Mayor of New York kaya un. Sabi pa ito daw ang kanyang 911. hehehe.

          Sir Roy! hahaha, exactly! kahit saan may Mexico. Mexico, Newyork ngayon may Mexico, Pampanga? hahaha! I think nakalusot ung Mexico na yon, basta wag lang gamitin ang city, like Mexico City because that is another story. Dahil talagang Meksikano na talaga ang mga tao doon di ba? hahaha!

          At least nagkaintindihan din sila mga kaibigan. MEXICO, PAMPANGA — COOL! Thank you po sir sa munting halakhakan. hahaha! that feels good…

      hahaha! salamat sa concern Vanvan. sus nia na giod sa among tugkaran ning butakal day. kung makadungog ka sa balita nga Queens naa giod mi anang lugara.

      pero kay pinoy lagi ug taga Mindanao pa giod so morag dili ra kaayo madutlan ining ilang pagpanghulga. Gadako gud tawon tang ginapakuratan kaniadto pa. Mas kuyaw pa kay ang epidemya nga atong naagian kaniadto mao ang gubat, ambush, lut-hang rebolosyon, bomba, pinusilay, masaker, kuot, turtyor, preso, rape, dunggab, saksak, tulis, kawat, holdup, kidnap…hahaha! unsa pay nabilin nga kahadlok?

      Matud pa, ano pa ang iluluha kung wala nang luha. Pero tinoud ka amping amping lang giod tang tanan. Amping ug dala na niini ang pag-ampo. Mao na lang ma na sya ang adtuan…ampo na lang dayon sa Diyos nga Maloloy-on.

      Naka survive gani ta sa Bird Flue. Survive sa Mad Cow Disease. Nia hinaut nga maka survive ining butakal nga virus.

      Pero kung kita ang mapili nga casualty ini nga epidemya then mahibaloan na lang na sya kay IBALITA NA LANG SA MGA KAUBANANG EXODIANS nga si DARBS NATINGKULING na giod kay na H1S1 Virus.

      Dawaton na lang nato kung unsa man ang mahitabo. Ang importante padayon tang manginabuhi.

      Salamat sa concern.
