I can’t recall knowing quite so many people personally all with confirmed cases of influenza as I do right now. Relatives, colleagues, lots of people sick with fevers and sometimes gastric problems.
Flu cases started lower than average but have really spiked since mid July. I don’t know nationally want strains are causing it but people I know seem to be all suffering from Influenza B – which is less scary than the pandemic causing type A’s because only humans and seals catch type B.
Anyway…special warning to human (and seal) readers in the Northern Hemisphere: get vaccinated each flu season! The flu might still get you but even if it does:
- Usually shorter
- Symptoms are less severe
- Less chance of complications
You’re turn next. (Unless this is the flu you all had last winter) Stay away from seals?
