I talked to them this morning (after reading the CBC article) and they said they are finaly starting to feel better (appitite is back, no more nausia)
- 1.5 weeks since they got sick.
It's weird that it can kill healthy adults (25-44) but kids and older adults only get sick.
Note: the CBC article I read said that it only affected people over the last week - I'm calling BS.
If I remember correctly from school here's the reason.
Adults of the middle age group usually have stronger immune systems than older adults or youngsters. (correct me if i'm wrong here.)
Since their immune systems is stronger the reaction to the flu is greater. This flu would lodge itself in a persons lungs and infect everything.
Unfortunately the immune systems would attack infected lung cells. And if all of the lung cells are infected then that means your own immune system
would kill off all your lung cells and you could no longer breath.
Which is a huge problem for that person.
I hope I explained that correctly it's been close to 20 years now since science class.
In any case those FEMA camps and plethora of plastic coffins are starting to make some sense now. Looks like someone might have a crystal ball to look
into the future.
