  • Schools in southern Ohio are shutting down because of the Flu. It’s not to be taken lightly.

    Sorry for your loss Bruce! I agree it’s definitely something that has to be taking seriously. It effects more folks then we realize.

    Interesting that most US airlines have scuttled flights to China due to the corona virus that has killed over 500 sofar, but continue to fly in the US from state to state even though the CDC estimates that so far this season there have been at least 19 million flu illnesses, 180,000 hospitalizations and 10,000 deaths from flu or an average of 200 per state. Notwithstanding, no schools are closed, no quarantines are in effect and we have a vaccine available but let antivaxers endanger their own lives, their children’s lives and potentially act as carriers for the virus, thereby harming others.

    @Michael I never paid attention to how bad the flu really was until Amanda passed away. Since then there have been several close to my hometown that have died. I think the problem is we just aren’t paying attention.

    @Bruce any people are lazy. My father in law has cancer and has no immunity. We invited him over for a Super Bowl party knowing everyone else we asked we would have to ask if they had a flu shot. 1 of 14 people had the shot. None antivax. Just lazy.

    @Michael my other daughter, her husband and both her kids had it about 2 months ago. My son called today. He has type B. No shot. 🙈

    With a heavy heart I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I’m 70 and never had the flu shot until this year and only this year because everyone said I’m old and I need to get one. I didn’t know I was old. I hope it helps.

    @Bruce I think you’re got a several more seasons in ya. Lol

  • Bruce's avatar
