Influenza...H5N1 AVIAN...Bird Flu...

THE NEXT PANDEMIC if it is spread among humans? Have we ever had a way to stop the flu from spreading? I don't think so. If (when) this virus starts spreading to humans and maintains it's extraordinary virulence we humans could be looking at a pandemic illness like never before ever witnessed. The C.D.C. predicts that a medium level epidemic could kill up to 207,000 Americans, and hosiptalize 734,000 and strike about a 3rd of the U.S. population. If we assume a failure to produce an effective vaccine really soon with the virus to start affecting us here in the U.S. in about 2 months time as our President says. We could be looking at about 16 million deaths in a very short time period just here in the U.S. let alone other Countries. From what I understand H5N1 bird flu remains impervious to some anti-flu drugs. Whats worse we haven't even tapped on the effects this virus will take on as it mutates. As of May 1, about 109 people were known to have contracted the bird flu and it killed 54% of those infected. The only thing I can advise upon hearing about a case that happens in your communities is to ware mask, latex gloves, stay out of large groups or crowds of people. Keep taking vitamins that boost your immune system, and drink your Fruta Vida juice, wash your hands often, and try to stay as healthy as you can.
