When the Swine flu hit a few years ago, my husband caught it..This was a rapidly deteriorating disease. Started with slight cough mild body aches, fatigue and sub normal temp....Not even a low grade fever but lower than 97 degrees.
Over night the cough rapidly increased. By morning he was short of breath and the body aches were tremendous! He was so weak he needed help getting in the car. The doctor checked via nasal swab and it was positive for H1N1.
It did not last long and he made a quick recovery. Never had a high fever typical of flu!
To the poster whom suggested the "sweat box" I would say proceed with caution! raising the body temperature to a high degree to induce a fever is dangerous. It quickly leads to dehydration and severe weakness. There are other mechanisms taking place in the immune system that are activated to fight disease. You do not have to induce fever for this process to work.
I truly believe this is not H1N1 or the same we saw a few years ago. This is much more virulent than what we have seen and leaves some people in critical condition. Not your straight influenza by any means. I do not think the doctors nor WHO or the CDC understands exactly what they are dealing with. This sounds much more like a strain of Avian flu based on the condition of the patients.
I am an RN and a research scientist. This is a flu that has mutated into a virus we have not dealt with in US. This could be MERS with started in the Middle East. They need to get a handle on this quickly in order to avoid a pandemic. We are not being told the "whole" truth here. The last thing the Govt. wants is a panic sweeping through our troubled country....
I will do some research and see what I can find out. Star and Flag for this thread!
