The Florida Panhandle's low flu rate

This area and all around has been practically skipped over by this season's flu outbreak.

Why would that be? There are a combination of reasons.

  1. Hurricane Michael drenched the area in negative ions.
  2. Cell and internet service is still down in some areas.
  3. We've had 350% more rain for this time period since the storm. Losing so many trees apparently affects weather patterns. Who would have thunk it! The storms - which last much longer now - bring additional negative ions.
  4. With some area hospitals shut down due to hurricane damage, there was no hospital to go to or report it if a person actually had the flu. The same is true with doctor's' offices, some of which were significantly damaged. Many private practice and hospital physicians have left town permanently.

The net result is that everyone in Panama City, for example, is still talking about the hurricane, and no one is talking about the flu!

Finland is experiencing a milder than normal flu season and the rest of Europe seems to report a similar scenario.

In checked to see how the flu does when it is frozen. The virus can survive one freezing speell ,but typically not two. As you've mentioned eariler your temperatures have been below freezing quite a bit. Plus you had those hurricane force winds. Greater turbuelence incrases the presrmvr g negative oxygen ions. Those ions neutralize both viruses and bacteria.

Most likely those two factors have helped reduce the incidence of the flu during the times when ethe weather was acting up.

Also this year's strain of flu is less likely to kill than last year's predominant flu.

The weather isn't abnormal at all for a Finnish winter. There are harsh storms and deep freezes every year. It's just a milder virus and the flu vaccine was a good match for a change.

Well you have won this round. ( I won't comment on how Jay's illness could have been set up by his being on a plane and passing through security. Ten thousand out of 12,000 soldiers at Valley Forge survived five months of often brutal weather despite lacking shoes in some cases and having no heating other than a bonfire, so bad weather isn't necessarily a cold or flu promoter.)
