Flu 2018

“I was flat on my back and in bed for 10 days,” said Oktay, who lives in Palms. “This has been hands down the worst flu I’ve ever dealt with.”

Think Flu Season Is Bad? It Might Get Even Worse

The influenza virus that’s sickened millions of Americans this season is already the most widespread outbreak since public health authorities began keeping track more than a dozen years ago. Now, with the threat of more strains emerging, it might get even worse.

“Flu is everywhere in the U.S. right now,” says Dan Jernigan, director of the influenza division at the national Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. “This is the first year we have had the entire continental U.S. be the same color on the graph, meaning there is widespread activity in all of the continental U.S. at this point.”

I haven’t been stricken yet. I’ve had bad flu in the past. This time it seems like the strain is even worse.

It could actually kill me.

I’ve read two books and seen several documentaries about the 1918 worldwide flu pandemic. If you’ve never read up on it, you should. It’s the most frightening reading you can do.
