Live Blog from the Anchor Desk 04/30/09

Tonight on AC360°, the swine flu flight risk.  Vice President Joe Biden took a lot of heat today for saying "I would tell members of my family - and I have - I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places right now.  It's not that it's going to Mexico.  It's you're in a confined aircraft. When one person sneezes, it goes all the way through the aircraft."  Is that true? Tonight, 360's Randi Kaye is Keeping them Honest.   She spoke with a doctor who studies germs and viruses like swine flu to find out how they spread in air travel.  Don't miss her report.

Don't miss Erica Hill's webcast on germs in flight during the commercials. Watch our WEBCAST

    Having worked contagion hospital units and licensed as a pubilic health nurse, I question the judgment of the supposed professionals who assert that we have cases of swine flu in this country there is no purpose in implementing border interventions such as thermal scanning to complete travel prohibitions. If this is a serious illness there is always good sense in limiting the number of active cases that can spread disease. What gives? Are the economic concerns of the travel industry more important than our health?

    see, texting CAN be bad for your health! (or at least the poor SUV that was in the wrong place at the wrong time).

    Why does it take so long to figure out if a positive flu case is swine flu or not?

    Miss California has a convoluted image of her importance in the big scheme of things....... she is entitled to her opinion, she gave it , she did not answer the question correctly.... and I really doubt Perez Hilton has that much power as a judge. Your 15 mins of fame are overrrrr..

    My corporation has had a pandemic plan in place for a few years. They announced today that anyone who has recently traveled to Mexico will be given 7 days paid to stay @ home. If they have no symptoms they can return to work after their week at home. Great gesture by a great place to work!
