Posted on 04/20/2014 9:50:57 PM PDT by Kartographer
More than 160 inmates in five Colorado prisons are sick with a mysterious virus. The virus is affecting prisons in Denver, Pueblo, Buena Vista, and Canon City. Because of the illness all inmate visits at the Denver Womens, La Vista, and Fremont correctional facilities have been canceled. The Department of Corrections says the inmates who are sick have been experiencing flu-like symptoms.

Shouldn’t be too hard to figure out...
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
There is a really nasty flu virus circulating in the Northwest right now. It can cause pneumonia and lasts for a couple weeks.
Two weeks? I had it for five, got over it a bit more than a month ago, and my lungs still ain’t right.
With jet travel, it will spread very quickly.
Be sure to cough and spit up a few loogies before, during, and after one of those TSA patdowns. At least the TSA will think twice about getting up close and personal.
If they detain you, just tell them it’s nothing to worry about and that you are on your way to an Obamma fund raiser.
Anytime you touch any object touched by others in public areas, wash your hands with a bit of soap. Most important, is not to touch your face before washing hands. Since I started doing this, colds, flu and other viruses have not zapped me. Just came back from a 3 week cruise and never got hit by noro-virus. Ships have hand cleaner everywhere now-a-says.
Hope to God that isn’t what I’ve been hit with. Had it for a week now. Still don’t feel that much better.
Mysterious virus? Isn’t it called chlamydia or HIV after they rape each other?
Yes, wash your hands after shopping and using the grocery store carts. Avoid Wal*Mart carts as no across the counter soaps seem to kill those bacteria. Wal*Mart today, diarrhea tomorrow is my experience. Old folks like me have weakened immune systems, so we are more susceptible to infection than younger folks.
or’planned false flag biomed disaster to allow’obama to fire up a few dictatorial executive orders.
Upon entering Walmart or any grocery store, first thing to do is to use those wipes placed near cart area and wipe the handle properly.
Not every store provides wipes, but when they do I use them.
And be sure to get a flu shot, pneumonia shot when appropriate, hepatitis shot when appropriate, etc.
Or, carry your own wipes for your hands and the shopping cart handles. Better safe than sorry.
Pot laced snacks?
Yep, I’m in the middle of it and have been to the Doctors twice this week. Symptoms run the gammet of flu like aches, low grade fever, then moves on like a head cold or sinus infection, then down to the chest. One whopper of a virus, they had to change my meds and give me two types of cough medicine.
I had a house full yesterday and was cooking all day, I also refused to hold my new granddaughter, I didn’t want to make her sick. Now I’m totally exhausted...
Please add me to this ping list. Thanks.
Yes, the hand washing is very important. I learned that years ago from my dear late mother. As she did, I wash my hands first thing upon returning home whenever I have been out in public, and I do not eat anything without washing my hands first.
In January, I had my first illness in years and years. Some sort of short-lived stomach bug, which I probably caught from my youngest grandson, whom I was babysitting at the time.
Please add me to the list as well.
If there is a good thing about this, it is that the timing is such that w/warmer wx now, more will be outside and NOT confined indoors (I know, not relative to the prison population in op but, in that scenario, I would have to go w/something common and foodborne.
Beat me to it! Maybe cookies.
NOTE TO SELF: When in Colorado selling AR and AK 30 round magazines out of the trunk, DO NOT eat local prepared food. Bring your own in cans!
Done. It’s been kinda busy the past few days.
I could believe that. Perfect subject group.
I’m a hermit and rarely go anywhere; but the flu I got was airborne, and I got it two days after I did venture out to an official event I had to attend. And everyone around here had it, so it was likely inevitable. I agree, it is vital to wash hands after touching anything anyone has touched, if I do go out, I have home made hand sanitizer and use if frequently.
With some bad flus such as swine flu, as with the 1918 flu, the virus can directly cause pneumonia, without the need of secondary bacterial infection.
Before I touch it, I lick it clean.
So there is a viral pneumonia circulating and has reached epidemic proportions in several prisons and they don’t know what they are dealing with? The veterinarians at Colorado State would have a handle on this quickly if it had been livestock. What is the problem?
Some animals are more equal than others?
The problem is that life in prison sucks. Colorado provides pretty good health care for prisoners, but their capacity is very limited.
