    I think this was discussed when the outbreak first happened. It’s common to flare up, die down, and then come roaring back. I won’t pretend to understand the mechanism of this, but apparently experts, top men, feel this will come back much stronger during our winter flu season.

    If the virus doesn’t mutate into anything more dangerous than it already is, then it’s just another flu season, but if it goes 1918 on us, then we could be in some trouble. Tens of Thousands die from the flu every year anyway, but if it becomes more deadly and that runs up into the millions…

    Then these precautions could be a good thing.

    I believe it dies down in the summer months b/c ppl aren’t ‘huddled’ together as much.. it spreads more globally I think (summer traveling).. but its not as ‘virulent’ as the winter season..

    what concerns me is that the WHO is really wigging out on this one… they’re no longer reporting ‘pandemic’ numbers b/c they don’t want to alarm ppl.. and now we seriously have discussions on using old under ground burial crypts for the bodies.. (we don’t, but you know what I mean).. I think the X factor for this is not how many ‘normally affected’ ppl it will harm.. but that it seems to be attacking and killing the ppl who are never affected by the flu.. it’s killng off the healthy instead of the weak.. combo that with any normal flu season where the weak are also affect by regular strains.. and we could have a serious problem here in the next cpl months..

    I advise flu shots and pneumo-vax for everyone this time around..

    I’ll be keeping an eye on how this goes in the next cpl weeks/months..
