Well, this weekend, 75% of the folks presenting to the ER for flu like symptoms were positive for Flu A (presumed H1N1). ICU's full of people on vents to the point where we're holding vented people in the ER.
10% of the kids in the county school system are out with flu/strep. And the head of the school system says he's not closing down because he doesn't want to cause a "panic."
Good news: at current infection spread, we should be done with this in 10-12 weeks (it will run out of people to infect).
Bad news: Our county and the county west of us -- no tamiflu.
Better news: I've taken both the H1N1 injection and the regular seasonal flu injection. I have not dropped dead, mutated into an alien life form, broke out in EB, GB, rheumatic arthritis, lupus or the flu. About 10 hours after the injection, I ran a 99 degree fever for 2 hours. That was it.
What's the infection rate like where you are?
