Thou doth protest too soon....
Flu Season has only just begun, and so far the weather mild.
Flu season is a regularly recurring time period characterized by the prevalence of outbreaks of influenza (flu). The season occurs during the cold
half of the year in each hemisphere. Influenza activity can sometimes be predicted and even tracked geographically. While the beginning of major flu
activity in each season varies by location, in any specific location these minor epidemics usually take about 3 weeks to peak and another 3 weeks to
significantly diminish. Individual cases of the flu however, usually only last a few days.
Something interesting else to take note of:
Research in guinea pigs has shown that the aerosol transmission of the virus is enhanced when the air is cold and dry. The dependence on aridity
appears to be due to degradation of the virus particles in moist air, while the dependence on cold appears to be due to infected hosts shedding the
virus for a longer period of time. The researchers did not find that the cold impaired the immune response of the guinea pigs to the virus.
A recent research done by National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) on influenza virus identified the virus as having
"butter-like coating". The coating melts when it enters the respiratory tract. In the winter, the coating becomes a hardened shell; therefore, it
can survive in the cold weather similar to a spore. In the summer, the coating melts before the virus reaches the respiratory tract.
Plus, did anyone say that Mandatory Flu Shots had to happen this year, just because they now have a vaccine? They have primed the minds of the
populace with fear, but that doesn't mean they have to act now. Let the fears subside for a year or two, then initiate at the signs of pandemic.
Nay-sayers will have forgotten, and the sheep still willing.
What is scary, is that if Flu, swine, bird or decaf, spreads better in the cold, and the Swine Flue in Mexico spread that well while the weather was
warmer, not cold and dry.
Things could get bad fast, that it doesn't matter if they force a vaccination or not.
