  • More information on the origins of this (Oaxaca)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEsKMHt7q9E

    gsgs has sent me this link. There is far more information in this video than I can translate. This video is 7.5 minutes long, in Spanish, and includes interviews with the husband of the woman who died in Oaxaca on 4/13, as well as the doctors who treated her, and local health authorities.

    My Spanish translation skills cannot keep up with this video. If someone whose skills exceed mine would watch this video and post some of the important points, it would be helpful.

    gsgs, this is an EXCELLENT find.

    I'm interested where she got it from.

      There are confirmed cases in Mexico dating back to March 11, if not earlier. The Oaxaca woman likely acquired the virus from a mild human case. This woman in Oaxaca is still at least several generations removed from the index case.

      I would appreciate a translation on that video, though.

        seems that the early cases are from an outbreak in LaGloria.
        But I think LaGloria was not the origin, the sequences
        show some mutations already.
        The fewest mutations are seen in InDre4487, which
        I assume is from Adela Maria Gutierrez.
        The virus may have survived in the environment
        and she may have got it from pork or such.

          What date was that sample InDre4487 taken?

            14. April

            it was reported that they sent it to Canada.
            Only two sequences marked "InDRE" at genbank,
            the other is 4114, no date,gender,age given.

            I had sent email to InDRE, no reply.

            Edgar from LaGloria is presumably 4108,4m,02.April, 6 mutations,
            including the two from
            the Northern strain, so not the anchestor of Cancunflu(NY/3215).
            (which I think was in Mexico City (4482,4604,) which in turn goes back to
            the preserved Oaxaca-strain (4487,4115))

              Are you sure about that? This woman died in the morning of 4/13. If the sample was taken 4/14, it is unlikely to be hers. What age and gender is given?

                not sure, no age and gender given.
                Samples were taken after her death.

                The official confirmation by the Ministry of Health was given to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention United States, located in Atlanta, confirmed the case on April 16.

                The doctors took samples of their bronchial secresiones, blood and faeces for shipment to laboratories

                  It's possible, but I can't imagine she was any kind of "Patient Zero" - she just happened to get discovered first.

                  When they were suspecting a novel coronavirus, they were checking out possible animal exposures, and didn't find any. I'm fairly certain she caught it from a human mild case.

                      Exactly. I also believe that InDre never found novel H1N1 in Gutierrez, it was the NML and CDC that did. Oaxaca has confirmed dozens of cases with onset dates in April - that sample is someone else's.

                              From Gs's MSNBC April 30 link:
                              In the end, only 18 people — all hospital workers — were tested for swine flu after Gutierrez's sample came back positive around April 20,... Of the 18 saliva samples taken from medical staff, 12 did not have enough cells to be tested. The other six came back negative for swine flu, Coronado said. (So there were no positives?)

                              Coronado said only 18 of all the (472) people interviewed were tested for swine flu because the others didn't show signs of the disease (no comment on the results of these tests)

                              Health officials say Ooxaca's 11 current cases of suspected swine flu are unrelated to the tax workers,
