As a person who caught & survived the Hong Kong Flu
I am taking
this new Novel strain very seriously.
the flu I had almost killed both my mother and myself, we were both fortunate to recover, it did kill over 1 million people world-wide.
You see it's the antigenic shift (or mutation) that may be occurring RIGHT NOW with this new Novel strain that will make it a deadly monster.
And there is nothing we can do to stop that shift/mutation from happening, especially when the world is more concerned with keeping commerce flowing,
than with containing a potentially deadly disease.
Plus many laboratory people working with this virus have reported that it displays many of the markers found in the 1918 Spanish Flu strain, which
leads the professionals to believe that we will continue to see this Novel strain AND IT'S MUTATIONS again and again for a couple of years.
I find it so amazing that so many will "blow off" the potential severity of this flu virus, but will take AIDS seriously - and you don't catch AIDS
from someone coughing or sneezing near you.
