As I've been saying, I THINK this was a test for what may come this fall. The WHO appears ready to declare martial law in the US, Canada and Mexico based on these numbers as a justification. These numbers do not justify such a move.
**Deaths: 168 deaths in Mexico, 12 confirmed as swine flu. One confirmed in U.S., a nearly 2-year-old boy from Mexico who died in Texas.
**Confirmed sickened worldwide: 504; 300 confirmed as having swine flu in Mexico; 133 in U.S.; 35 in Canada; 13 in Spain; eight in Britain; four each in Germany and New Zealand; two in Israel; one each in Switzerland, Austria, China, Denmark and the Netherlands. Mexico is no longer releasing "suspected" numbers; the number of suspected cases was 2,498 before the tally was halted.
**U.S. confirmed sickened, by state: 50 in New York; 26 in Texas; 18 in California; 10 in South Carolina; five in New Jersey; four each in Arizona and Delaware; two each in Kansas, Colorado, Virginia, Michigan and Massachusetts; and one each in Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Minnesota, Nebraska and Nevada.
