Influenza needs a serious rebranding. Infects like 50 million a year and kills a fuk ton of people and no one bats an eye. Then these one-off zoonotic viruses pop up with cool names and you can't strap on the surgical masks fast enough.

The flu vaccine can take responsibility for half of that.  Or the earth.  Serves us right for living way beyond our expiry date

 people were panicking at work today so i reminded them it was no big deal compared to good old fashioned Spanish flu in the 1920s. 100 million...now that's a plague!

Problem with influenza is the vaccines are based on one or more different strains or serotypes of the virus, and what works for one particular strain or serotype may or may not work for a newer one.  I still say get the shot.  One of the common strains used for vaccines is "Hong Kong A", which I caught in December of '69, and that chit knocked me out of the park!  Bedridden sick for a week,  and weak as a girl with no real appetite for another two weeks.  I was 18, 5' 11" and 160 when I caught it, weighed 145 3 weeks later.  Felt like I went five rounds and lost 50-30 on all cards.  You don't want to fook around with the flu!

Influenza kicked my **** once already this year. I'll beat Corona just like I beat the Ebola outbreak, the SARS outbreak, the usual black plague scares in Baltimore, etc etc etc etc. 

@VertFTW, it's high time you make an Influenza Thread. It's only right. It's far more dangerous and it's wreaking havoc on society as we speak.

I haven't had the flu in like 7-8 yrs. Haven't had a legit full blown cold in like 5-6 yrs. Last yr for the first time in like 3 yrs i caught a cold for like 2 days but i took an alka selzer cold plus dissolving tablet & 2 sudafed right away as soon as i noticed my throat was a little sore and food/cigs tasted funny so i knew i was gonna get sick.  Beat the breaks off that would be cold. It never had a chance to get more than some mild sniffles. It never fails. 

A few family members had flu shots and got sick more than i do and my dad took one at one point & felt like crap for 6 months. 

For that reason I NEVER take flu shots i ALWAYS op out of those. Probably why i never get sick lol

I figure If my immune system ever gets so pathetically weak that the fkn flu kills me then it's my time to go. If i dies i dies.

Nah. Next mutation may spread more easily but it's not highly contagious according to reports & mortality r8s are around 3%.  It's no more dangerous or difficult to recover from than the flu. 

 

Regular flu has way less of a mortality rate than 3%. It's barely 1/10th of a %. Tsk tsk

My mistake you're right. It's like 0.3 worldwide or something like that according to WHO. Think i got it confused with some stat that CDC reported & when i was looking at the numbers of deaths for regular flu the numbers of reported deaths was kinda staggering. There was one article i saw in NYP that had like 8 to 15% for some reason but that was likely the percentage of flu deaths among all r8's. 

Regardless 3 out of 100 which has been reported for Corona is nothing to be ignored but not really alarmed about either. 

If it gets up to 10% which it won't then i'll start worrying.

$6.50 is a special price for a Corona? That's at least $3 too high for a regular price.

Sweden's finally come to the party.

Some woman came back from China and "self-quarantined" herself.  9 days later she showed symptoms.  We're on the map boys!

Sometimes i really hate these regulation-following Nordics though.  They can't even do a good honest plague right.

Haven't seen any reports of cases in LA. 

There is definitely reports of suppression in China. In fact they arrested some whistle blowing nurses/doctors that claimed numbers of infected are much higher.

Actually a little concerned about it now from what i'm hearing about it on Tim Pool's coverage of it. < He's speculative but fair & used some experts as sources. 

I'm not that worried about it for myself really but if my mom got it would probably kill her.

If they have a case here they should confirm it & take appropriate actions. Not doing so is negligence and promotes it's spread. 

From what i understand it has an incubation period of up to two weeks without symptoms.
