The Flu Is Far Worse Than We're Being Told

Quote:I have been pouring over numbers and reports over the past few days, and it’s actually even worse than we’re hearing about. Tens of thousands of Americans are dying. It’s now worse than the 2009 swine flu outbreak and is on track with the 2014-15 strain. And it’s not showing any signs of slowing down.

Despite this, the media is downplaying the severity of the flu and the government makes the statistics pretty difficult to find. Are they trying to avoid a panic? Do they know something we don’t?

Here’s what you need to know about why this year’s flu is so dangerous.
This Year’s Flu Strain Is More Deadly

The dominant Influenza strain this year is H3N2. This particular strain has a history of causing more hospitalizations and more deaths. According to the CDC:

In the past, H3N2-predominant seasons have been associated with more severe illness and higher mortality, especially in older people and young children, relative to H1N1- or B-predominant seasons. Between 1976 and 2007, for example, CDC estimates that an average of 28,909 people died from flu during H3N2 seasons, compared to 10,648 people during non-H3N2 predominant years.

That’s a difference of 18,261 adults each year. And that’s in a good year.

In addition to H3N2 producing a more serious infection in general, this year’s particular H3N2 influenza virus is particularly virulent. The number of deaths due to influenza or complications to the flu, such as pneumonia (a secondary bacterial infection following influenza), varies from year to year.

I've been avoiding the grocery store and washing my hands all the time, taking zinc and vitamin c but I don't know if I can avoid it. The article states the current flu has already resulted in 44,116 deaths this flu season. That's high.

I'm on the end of it. Sore throat, fever, chills and felt like every tooth in my mouth was going to fall out. vic.gif I'm eating again and may go back to work by Thursday.
I feel sorry for old people and kids with this one.

Over 44,000 deaths already and it hasn't peaked is cause for concern. Down here it killed a 12-year-old West Palm Beach boy He was reported to be in good health before the flu.

I like to get the chem-trail flu as soon as they start spraying so if it mutates i can catch it again later.
It was a real bugger last year.

I've been reading it's bad stuff.
I never get sick, but I was down for about 3 months back to back colds with fever and cough followed by a blister virus on the inside of my gums. damned.gif
Now everyone's running a low grade fever... the thing is, whatever is going around people have no immunity.

No we haven't got any yet, forgot about it actually 13.gif

However, there ore other ways to keep your immune system in good shape this season. It's been bad here too, not the type A influenza yet though, but we did have a bad round of type B in the fall. It was bad then, and now there's some other virus going around. People have ear infections, sinus issues, bronchitis etc... many ppl of antibiotics. I never started my course of antibiotics as it suddenly got better by itself.

Stay healthy my friends

The dominant strain, H3N2, which is now making it's way from the U.S. into Canada, via the city of Windsor (on the Detroit border) was included in this year's flu vaccination, which I had last October. I just learned that the flu shot I had will take me through to the Spring, so fingers crossed because the last time I had the flu, I had pneumonia for months.

I am relieved to know it is not a mutated strain for which we have no vaccination.

Funny you should mention that, we ordered a new negative ion generator from amazon.de a few days ago.
It's identical to the old one we had that was accidentally destroyed when we moved, it worked perhaps too good.
It always smelled like a thunderstorm in the house, but no more cooking odors, and talk about cut down on the dust.
Since we have not had one for some time, we've been waking up with sinus issues.
This is a great unit for the price,
