CDC Warning: A Respiratory Virus Is Attacking Both Children And Adults

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is warning of a respiratory virus that is currently attacking both children and adults. The CDC says that everyone should watch out for Respiratory Syncytial Virus or “RSV.”

RSV may start out by noticeable symptoms that are very similar to those of the common cold and most people will recover in less than two weeks believing they only had a cold. Some symptoms are coughing, wheezing, loss of appetite, runny nose, and a fever.  Those symptoms are very similar to those of the common cold, and most people have actually had RSV before possibly believing it to be a cold.

RSV can spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes. You can get infected if you get droplets from a cough or sneeze in your eyes, nose, or mouth, or if you touch a surface that has the virus on it, like a doorknob, and then touch your face before washing your hands. Additionally, it can spread through direct contact with the virus, like kissing the face of a child with RSV. -CDC

However, the CDC says that RSV can be serious for infants and the elderly. As of now, the government agency says there is no vaccine to prevent the virus either. There is a medicine that can help protect some of the babies. This medicine (called palivizumab) is a series of monthly shots.

RSV is the most common cause of bronchiolitis (inflammation of the small airways in the lung) and pneumonia (infection of the lungs) in children younger than 1 year of age in the United States. It is also a significant cause of respiratory illness in older adults. But the virus is rather common. According to the CDC’s own website, almost all children will be infected with RSV by their second birthday, building natural immunities to the infection.

Should you be terrified of RSV? Probably not.  The CDC is well-known for the fearmongering to get people to take a flu shot every year (regardless of its efficacy) and often attempts to scare the public into accepting their notions that common illnesses are dangerous.

But, there are ways to help prevent RSV, and these will also help prevent common colds and the flu as well.

  • Wash your hands often. Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, and help young children do the same. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Washing your hands will help protect you from germs.
  • Keep your hands off your face. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Germs spread this way.
  • Avoid close contact with sick people. Avoid close contact, such as kissing, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who have cold-like symptoms.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or upper shirt sleeve when coughing or sneezing. Throw the tissue in the trash afterward and wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces. Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that people frequently touch, such as toys and doorknobs. When people infected with RSV touch surfaces and objects, they can leave behind germs. Also, when they cough or sneeze, droplets containing germs can land on surfaces and objects.
  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and public areas when you are sick. This will help protect others from catching your illness.

You could also consider naturally boosting your immune system to help give your body a leg up should you be exposed to the virus or actually come down with any “winter time” illness, such as a cold or the flu.

  1. There are a lot of people in this country that are on immuno-suppressant medications. For most of us, this might mean a bad cold or case of the flu. Tor others, it could be fatal.

    • Genius says:

      As mentioned yesterday, colloidial silver inhaled with a fine spray bottle or nebulizer. Just do it!

    • Brian, so solve the reason you allow a doctor to put you on the meds and actually get healthy by yourself, which means a strong immune system. Or don’t and stay sickly, your choice.

      Amazing , hey ?

    • Plan twice, prep once says:

      The adenovirus that blew through the North East, killing all those children it turns out responded to zinc lozenges. I have no real evidence aside personal experience. I always keep Coldeeze in the closet.

      Any family member I had that got adenovirus, I handed out Coldeeze to at first symptoms, they were pretty much over it in two days not ten days. I myself was on vacation on a tropical island when I got it, likely on the plane ride down, and had no Coldeeze with me. I suffered for days with about the worst sore throat and headaches I’ve ever had.

      Yeah, after I got home I added vacuum sealed six packs of zinc lozenges to my travel supplies.

      • Babycatcher says:

        That’s a great idea! Will add to my supplies! Thanks!

        • Plan twice, prep once says:

          Zinc lozenges, I usually cut them in half. At the first symptoms take one half after each meal and the one half after brushing teeth before bed is most important.

          If you are better or the same the next day keep taking them.
          If you are worse, you likely have a flu or flu like condition, which coldeeze don’t work on, so stop taking them. Consider colloidal silver nose drops.
          If you are lots worse, then you may have a bacterial infection and the coldeeze will only be an irritant, so stop taking them.

          Coldeeze work by interfering with virus replication in the common cold and a few similar viral infections.

      • Philosopher Deplorabilis says:

        I wish I knew about this on Sunday! I’ve been sick with a wicked cold and a hacking cough. Sneezed and coughed so hard, a few days ago, it threw my back out. I went to my knees and had to wait a few minutes to crawl back to the bedroom.

        My voice is shot and I hadn’t eaten any food until yesterday. Feels like somebody beat the heck out me. Not fun!

        Oh, read an article linked on Drudge about a 26-year old writer, pundit, that died, they are saying from H1N1 and are saying it was swine flu. Sounds like she also had meningitis.

        I swear, a couple times this week, I wondered if I was gonna make it — or not. Seems like I got through the worst but still feel like crap.

  2. CA Rebel says:

    What special ingredient is in this years flu shot?

  3. Anonymous says:

    The CDC is a government agency,

    Everyone knows that everything the government says is a lie.

    So you can ignore this article and warning.

  4. Gestor says:

    Common viruses aren’t of much concern for me.
    Its the black market designer pathagones coming from clandestine labs that I find disturbing.
    (cough) hypothetically of course.

  5. You are always your best doctor and your food is always the best medicine. That includes many herbs. Many you can easily grow yourself. No rocket science at all.

  6. Maranatha says:

    The American people and especially parents have gotten wise to the FACT that the influenza vaccine is seldom effective as it’s been a 50/50 shot of having efficacy. Personally, snorting it as is the latest method seems very dangerous as the vaccine then can cross the cribiform plate which allows access to the olfactory bulb and thus direct brain exposure. ‘Sound dangerous in my opinion versus an injection.

    RSV can result in a serious life threatening respiratory distress with a severe cough in infants. I recommend that young parents go to youtube and listen to various types of coughs as they are indicative of common childhood illnesses. Thus you have a bit more to tell the triage nurse when seeking treatment. That gets immediate attention in an infant, and that is far wiser. You want to get to the front of the line IF it’s serious but NOT to overreact.

    • Plan twice, prep once says:

      In vaccines they have been replacing methymercury with other water soluble metal based toxins, including some based on aluminum. They’ve also been adding water soluble aluminum based compounds, because they are an immune irritant that solicits a stronger immune response.

      Autopsies of autistic children who have died of other causes as well as people with many forms of dementia, in large numbers show high levels of non soluble aluminum in their brains. It gets in when water soluble, but reacts to nonsoluble forms that become trapped by the blood brain barrier.

      Test on certain mineral waters that contain no aluminum, show that if an adult drinks a pint a day, there is a large amount of aluminum detectable in their urine tha to tapers off to normal levels after six months.

      The magic active ingredient is a form of silica called silicic acid. Which it appears can cross the blood brain barrier and act as a getter allowing the body to dump all the accumulated aluminum. One of the best is Fiji water, there’s another one from Europe, and another from Japan that is actually not natural but blended. Just search for mineral water with high levels of Sillicic Acid.

      One of the biggest sources of aluminum in babies is vaccines. Next is the sacrificial Aluminum anode in water heaters. More pricey but they can be upgraded to less toxic magnesium. Another solution is to never use hot water in anything for human consumption. Use cold water and heat in in a pot. Finally get rid of all pure aluminum cookware, it’s ok to use ceramic non stick aluminum cookware, but discard it, if the ceramic coating becomes scratched.

      And yes, I’ve convinced all the parents of babies in the family to only give their child Fiji mineral water. It’s easy with babies, you can mix it with formula, and carry small bottles in a diaper bag for the bigger ones. I’ve also tried to convince all adults in the family of retirement age to drink a glass a day for six months to get rid of a lifetime of accumulated aluminum. Then just have one glass a week.

      I can’t make the little one in the family stop getting vaccines, but I can compensate for some of the toxic metals they contain.

      Last trick is I installed water filters in my house that remove 99.9% of all metals. That’s what comes out of my refrigerator door in the form of ice and cold water. It’s what we drink and cook with.

      Autism it seems is striking in a pattern, generally children between age 2 and 4. One day your baby is fine, and about a month after you get an MMR vaccine or similar, you end up with a brain damaged child who won’t look you in the eye, who has an entirely new personality. I suspect the aluminum builds until it hit hits a level that the immune system sees then the immune system starts killing cells with too much aluminum including brain cells.

      Antidotal evidence is showing some children newly reported with autism are recovering after a few months of drinking Fiji water. There are no medical studies that prove this, and don’t expect any in the US to be funded. It’s just a suggestion, the water has no known ill effects, and a pint a day for an adult for six months will cost less than $100. For a child it would cost a fraction of that.

      There was a recent paper on vaccines and autism that did find a significant link to autism and the MMR vaccine, based on existing data. It found the most significant link is in African Americans with a 25 fold increase in autism rates. My money is on welfare people who get free medical are also concentrated study targets. Problem is they are also likely to only be able to afford cheap aluminum, not even anodized cookware, they live in areas that already have the highest lead and mercury contamination in the US. The MMR vaccine by itself may not be the direct cause, just the straw that breaks the camels back when we live in a see of metals contamination.

      Note aluminum is one of the most plentiful metals on the planet, normally in oxide form, it is incredibly stable and safe. Problems began when people started refining it and making other chemicals with it. It’s in medicine, vaccines, deodorant, makeup, soaps, foods. It is everywhere. Personally I think injecting it into babies is a bad idea.

  7. During the first six weeks of life an infant has immunity from disease passed on by the mother.

    Vaccines are linked to Cancer and cause damage to the victims getting them. Stop unnecessary genocide by vaccination.

    Vaccines are bad.

    Vaccines don’t keep you from getting disease, they cause diseases.

    Autism is now 1 out of 30 male children born in the USA.
    Males are at greater risk from vaccines of getting autism.
    White people are at greater risk of becoming autistic from a vaccine.
    High intelligence puts an infant at greater risk because of more
    receptors in the brain.

    Babies born in the USA get stuck with needles.
    This form of child sacrifice most stop.


  8. Maranatha says:

    If you want your children to be healthy, especially infants, then do NOT take them to the grocery and or pharmacy in wintertime. The grocery cart is known to be FILTHY as it not only had meat in it (so E coli for sure or Salmonella) but also covered with various germs.

    Sick people are always in these stores as well as those family members who have been exposed because they are caring for sick people.

    Have some common sense. Obviously the drug aisle that is full of cold remedies or similar is full of sick people in wintertime buying the same.

    Kids attending public school get sick far more often as they catch various communicable diseases from fomites. Kids cough on each other and touch each other with dirty hands. When it looks like high absenteeism in the local grade schools, then does it make a lick of sense to have your kids attending??? This is especially true for nursery school and kindergarden where kids are even less apt to be heathy and clean.

    could this be another gift from turd world invaders?

  10. The Deplorable Renegade says:

    Liberalism is a virus that can affect anyone.

  11. I don’t know why vitamin D and colloidal silver are still such big secrets even in the “alt” world. Remember how old-time doctors used to recommend sunshine for sick people? They knew what they were talking about. The FDA RDA for D is ridiculously low. A shirtless white person generates around 15,000 IU of D from 30 minutes in the sunshine, so it stands to reason that that’s what humans have evolved to get. I take 10,000/day and I hardly ever get sick despite being around avian (chicken) viruses all day. If I do feel ill, 20-30K of D along with a few whiffs of ultrasonically nebulized CS before bedtime makes me well by morning, just like clockwork. WAKE UP!

    • Anonymous says:

      For your consideration:

      Before the development of antibiotics and antivirals, when colloidal silver was being used, deaths from all types of infections was significantly higher than it was after development and is today. Could there be a reason for that? Like maybe it didn’t work too well and has a strong tendency to turn you blue if you take it internally regularly or in any volume (called argyria)?

      Vitamin D has been known for generations, during WWII pregnant women were given a higher rationed amount of it for the vitamin D content they needed and almost everyone my age can recall being given (forced) it by their mothers to ward off deficiencies and the resulting health problems. It (cod liver oil) started to lose popularity with the advent of vitamin D fortified milk and most people just sort of forgot about it since most children did everything they could to avoid taking it.

    At the beginning of each show, viewers and the Playhouse denizens were told the day’s “Secret Word” and were instructed to “scream real loud” every time a character on the show said the word…

    Respiratory *Syncytial Virus
    syn = same
    cyt = cell

    A syncytium is a multinucleated cell that can result from multiple cell fusions.

    “…can result from multiple nuclear divisions without accompanying cytokinesis.” (Complete cell division.)

    This renamed polio (?) apparently causes limbs to become flaccid, as there is no gap between nerve cells? Or, where is the syncytium (same cell)?

  13. Maranatha says:

    There are preliminary reports that indicate a high amount of mortalities due to H1N1 which was a scourge in 2009. It’s affecting children and young people with a high profile conservative journalist being among these. SHE DIED IN 36 HOURS. That is not normal.

    I would be very careful especially if pregnant and use social distancing if possible. Utah is looking bad. We had school closures prior to Christmas due to flu in Kentucky.

    H1N1 type influenza in 2009 was particularly bad about cytokine storms making typically normal healthy people far more likely to have a severe overreaction.

    Interestingly enough, there was quiet concern that it started in Mexico in 2008, and I’m curious if the large caravan of illegal aliens might be the vector in this current contagion?

    • Maranatha says:

      The illegal alien child who died had flu and there are reports of many illegal aliens in that caravan who have flu. You might keep an eye on any reports from Mexico as many are bottled up there.

      Be wary. Any time you have mass groups of migrating people under unsanitary conditions means exacerbating contagion potential.

  14. Maranatha says:

    Three things.
    1. For the week ending Dec 22, the CDC is reporting a large jump in cases of H1N1 that went from two states with high caseloads to SEVEN. They are Alabama, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Carolina. Additionally there is a large spike in NYC.
    2. They also stated that it’s the largest spike since 2009 when this was a large concern. Recall that Fox News leaked that the government was considering mass quarantines when that occurred. You can find that old video on youtube.
    3. Eleven minutes ago, the CDC quietly released the gene sequence and it is very similar between the Mexican/Central American strain of H1N1. Thus its likely that the caravan DID infect some and it spread.

    Note that the Fox News contributor who routinely reports at the conservative OANN site did go down to cover the caravan. She is the one who died within 36 hours from swine flu.

    They are currently testing the boy illegal alien who died flu to see what strain it is.

    Additionally President Trump announced that an estimated 15,000 are gathering in a second caravan originating from Honduras and he’s considering closing the southern border amidst the government shutdown plus cutting all aid from associated countries.

  15. Maranatha says:

    If you are interested in following the data supplied from the states to the CDC, it’s compiled each week and called the CIDRAP report. We lack some data due to nonreporting and the epidemiology is often slipshod as data is incorrectly filed resulting in bureaucratic delays. Of course due to the holidays, there will be even more delays.

    Puerto Rico is also having a high level alert too.

    Any state with moderate activity might actually be much higher but the strain hasn’t been identified yet. That happened last time.

    In 2009, NORTHCOM got involved and their plan was to work in conjunction with FEMA to enforce military mass quarantines. But they were foolish and discussed these plans in open congressional meetings and with governors, thus Fox News heard of it and broadcast it two times before they were silenced.

    Meanwhile many state legislatures discussed bills and Massachussets passed such a bill and likewise many federal bills were created plus executive orders.

    Overwhelmingly while there are several strains of flu plus others like RSV, H1N1 Swine Flu is by far the most prevalent strain.

    Quarantine and Isolation: Selected Legal Issues
    Updated June 2018

  18. Maranatha says:

    The Institute for Disease Modeling using data from the 1918-1919 pandemic influenza found that a third of the planet were infected causing 500 million with the illness and an estimated mortality of 20-50 million. When they plugged this into modeling software, all worldwide urban centers were in infected in 60 days and it had a mortality of 33 million in 250 days.

    Unlike the miraculous happy ending in the film Contagion, the whole point was they couldn’t grow it as it kept killing whatever cells they exposed it to in the growth medium, therefore it was nigh impossible to create a vaccine. Then even IF they had a vaccine, it kept shifting its genetic sequence and incorporating multiple species into its total sequence,thus making a vaccine impossible. Then if you could overcome all of that, it would take a minimum of 1-2 years to create a vaccine with at best a 40-60 percent effective rate.

    What happened in 1918-1919 was there were three waves which typically targeted high population density areas and the only thing which stopped the contangion was social distancing. The only medical treatment back then with any efficacy was the osteopathic lymphatic drainage pump technique. The latter got republished in JAMA back in 2009 as it saved lives.

    Whatever antivirals we have today would only lessen symptoms and there was a series of state scandals in 2009 as the recommended percentages of antivirals were typically less than ten percent of required amounts per state.

    Note that Guam despite its isolation now is at high levels of H1N1 infection rates as well. We have no published data but it’s theoretically possible that it spread via US military or has similarly infected them or put them at risk.

    Note that Bre Paytob, the 26 year old conservative journalist who died of H1N1, had viral meningitis meaning the infection was all throughout her brain and spinal column. Similar deaths have now occurred in a baby in the UK and a LEO in India.

  19. Maranatha says:

    Standard contingency plans include closing state borders especially bridges. Make appropriate frugal plans if your BOL is in another state. Expect fuel restrictions and have water.

  20. Terry Moser says:

    Standardized Oregano Oil has helped me get over what must be this virus, this is way worse then a regular cold.

  21. Maranatha says:

    Some patients who took the H1N1 vaccine acquired Guillain Barre which is a type of paralysis as an adverse reaction but some recent data is pointing to narcolepsy as well. It’s a highly unusual disease in which patients fall asleep at odd times and must take medication to maintain alertness.

  22. Trusting the cdc is a foolish idea

  23. Maranatha says:

    Haven’t you ever wondered why the World Health Organization got so frantic, and our own government and military and CDC likewise privately got majorly concerned, and yet why are the stated fatalities from H1N1 in 2009 so low? Is this the first time you are realizing that the pandemic started in Mexico in 2008-2009? Why didn’t they shut down air travel as was considered the best strategy with contagion?

    If you read obscure medical literature and congressional reports, you would find the answers.

    There is a severe economic cost with pandemics as trade is halted and travel restrictions are imposed. And the globalists didn’t want that to happen. They especially didn’t when the globalists want illegal immigration.

    If you studied the privately circulated think tank and epidemiology literature, you would find out stupidity, misdiagnosis, carelessness, and outright apathy resulted in gross underestimation of H1N1 fatalities to the tune of 10-15 times! This is why the number is so low and why every ignorant person today presumes a severe overreaction.

    The same media obscures the facts as they have become mere propagandists.

    We honestly do not have acurate figures because the bulk of the countries kept no accurate statistics and it was not in any countries’ best interests to tally them.

    As a result, lots of impoverished people died worldwide and within the USA, and fatalities were often listed due to other causes like respiratory failure, cardiac arrest, meningitis, natural causes, pneumonia, of unknown origin, etc. Without autopsies, the problems go away.

    Think about it. In the entire state of California, only one H1N1 fatality and it just so happens to be a prominant young conservative journalist? Hmmm.

    Use critical thinking and look up what I wrote. If you dig enough, you will find similar conclusions but buried as news stories or only listed in medical journals or in government documents that are not publically circulated.

    They do not want you to know yet they fear what H1N1 can do especially any pandemic that can cause a cytokine storm.

  24. Maranatha says:

    According to CIDRAP and FLUVIEW, 94% of flu cases are Influenza type A, and of that large subset…84% are H1N1.

    You should take this quite seriously if someone is sick in your household.

  26. Maranatha says:

    CIDRAP is reporting that when N95 masks were tested against aerosalized particles, they saw a 10% failure rate.

    The old school way was spritzing a little vanilla extract and if the person wearing the mask could taste it, obviously they didn’t have a tight seal. It’s technically impossible to get a tight seal if you wear a beard as I am certain most prepper guys have.

    More sick illegal alien children with flu and pneumonia at the border. Given H1N1 swine flu originated in Mexico in 2009, and spread to the whole world, what do you bet these kids are sick with it? What do you bet they then infect other illegal aliens around them and likely border patrol officers?

    Why are the Democrats such idiots encouraging the deliquency of minors and putting their health at risk?

  28. Maranatha says:

    According to official health statistics, the preponderance of influenza cases in the USA (that we know of for most data slips through the cracks and neither records the actual cause…just the conditions or is even not identified or typed) for 2017-2018 was one of the worst on record in recent history with at least 80,000 deaths and 900,000 cases of pneumonia requiring hospitalization. Most of those cases were H1N1 influenza A (swine flu).

    Already the CDC is quietly warning again for this year because it is looking to be WORSE.

    We know there are insufficient antiviral medicines and critically short respirators. Yet we also have more people with healthcare albeit with no increase in physicians or staff, yet the deductables are ENORMOUS. This translates to more mortality and severity of illness and tragically to medical bankruptcies. This means even higher medical insurance rates.

    Add to that economic malaise intentionally orchestrated by Democrats. The healthcare debacle is also the end result of intentional sabotage and implosion by Democrats. Politically we have a stymied process or gridlock with the Democrats controlling the House. Militarily 70-80% of new potential recruits cannot successfully pass basic training.

    It’s a horrendous recipe for disaster.

    The least pressure will be like the straw that breaks breaks the camel’s back as the vast majority live paycheck to paycheck. What’s worse is a THIRD of millennials are simultaneously putting additional economic pressure on aging baby boomers (with the youngest being 55 this year). It’s so awful that many who would ordinarily move to nursing homes are choosing to stay home as they must surrender assets to do so, yet that would make their offspring homeless.

    The system can no longer pay for pensions and retirees as the BULK of states are technically bankrupt and severe market losses this year only exacerbates the situation. Illinois willbe the first domino. There is inadequate money coming in as wages have not kept up versus inflation.

    And yet, despite the criminal negligence of hampering illegal immigration, the Democrats plan the largest expansion of socialist policies since FDR’s New Deal. But on top of that are the hidden costs of massive illegal immigration using up social services. Not to mention we already know the current batch in Mexico are infected and will spread contagion.

    There is no better time than now to be prepared by frugal ancestral skills like a full pantry and much of that from a garden. There is no better time to have medical supplies at home and to know how to take care of your family.

  29. Maranatha says:

    Some hospitals and medical centers are posting limits on visitors now due to influenza. I would watch for that in your area as a red flag.

    When it gets bad, they put a triage nurse in a tent outside so influenza patients don’t contaminate others but are diverted.

    If hospitals get slammed, they go on “diversion” and the ambulances go elsewhere.

      There are now visitor restrictions in Phoenix, AZ, Bloomington and Indianapolis, IN, Detroit, MI, North Iowa, Alabama, etc.

      Some medical centers are making it a policy to have visitor restriction even if they are in different states since so many have happened in the last 48-72 hours.

      You should check your state and locality to see if it’s affecting you.

    Here is a working draft as of October 2018 of planning for triage tents for seasonal influenza overload due to a surge if cases and for infection control and malpractice liability issues. Since the 2017-2018 influenza season slammed the USA, they are taking extra precautions so there is some coordination.

    Triage tents are hardly normal. The idea largely began being discussed when H5N1 Avian Influenza was concerning in China. Then SARS too. Last year gave the health professionals an actual test case.

    The biggest concerns are drug shortages, personal protective gear shortages (mostly proper masks and gloves), antiviral ammounts, and adequate ventilators. Expect all to run out or be in use.

  31. Maranatha says:

    The State Department for Publc Health in Rhode Island has just made it mandatory for all healthcare workers who are unvaccinated to wear masks. Being vaccinated only has a 50% effectiveness rate against this years H1N1 influenza A virus and there are scores of variants so that may be an overly optimistic number. I would bet many who are vaccinated to still wear masks.

    • Maranatha says:

      Massachussets additionally has the same statewide requirement for healthcare workers who are unvaccinated. Expect many more if not all to do so. Neither was on the Fluview watch list of nine states as of 12/22. The new Fluview comes out in 3+ days stating which states are at high and widespread levels.

      • Maranatha says:

        A cursory glance appears to show New York and California require masks in this instance. VA hospitals across the nation have very low compliance on flu vaccination (I wonder why!) and most RN unions heartily resist mandatory vaccination as well. I would bet the VA demands masking as well.

        Note: even IF you were to take a flu vaccination tomorrow, you would not develop antibodies for 14 days, thus it would merely be an illusion that it accomplished anything. This is why these changes are ridiculous as of course all of these people can get these late vaccinations but they won’t immediately do anything.

  32. Maranatha says:

    Now this is weird. Nebraska is discussing closing some schools due to the rise in influenza BUT ALSO nursing homes. I have never heard of that before. I cannot imagine how their families would cope…if they even have family members who live in state.

    School closure is an economic issue based on daily census as that is how they disburse tax dollars. Between that and the Public Health officer in that city plus the School Superintendent, they try to jointly agree to reduce contagion.

  33. Maranatha says:

    Connecticut is now enforcing state law that requires 2-4 year olds to have an influenza vaccination and a doctor’s note confirming this or else the preschooler cannot attend.

  34. Maranatha says:

    Oregano oil helps a lot of people, but it can cause miscarriages, rapidly lower blood sugar so diabetics shouldn’t take it, and it can cause bleeding issues.

    Grapefruit seed extract kills many viruses, bacteria, and fungi, but that’s a double edged sword as it can damage gut flora as well. Also grapefruit interacts with cytochrome p450 which affects a lengthy list of drugs eitherincreasing the efficacy or decreasing the efficacy. This is why many people have to halt grapefruit when on medications. It likely would cause pregnancy issues too.

    Olive leaf is taken by some to fight infections. There isn’t any data on taking it with pregnancy BUT it’s likely dangerous as it lowers blood sugar, lowers blood pressure, and can cause an allergic respiratory reaction in some. Pregnant women have such an imcrease in blood volume, it can’t be recommended.

    Remember, there is a month to six week gap when testing based on loss of menses and nausea so women of child-bearing years must be always be careful especially due to intimate activity and protection.

  35. Maranatha says:

    Colorado has the worst amount of patients infected with influenza. Be wary there.

    Arizona unlike most of the USA has H3N2 flu whereas everywhere else the vast majority have H1N1.

  36. Maranatha says:

    ht tps://www.webmd.com/diet/supplement-guide-elderberry

    Black elderberry extract and syrup helped a lot of patients based on anecdotal evidence during the 2009 H1N1 influenza A pandemic.

    We know know that people with diabetes, autoimmune disorders, those taking chemotherapy, and those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use it in extract form.

    Elderberry syrup is very benign to most everyone else to reduce symptoms.

    The new data is late due to the holidays. Hopefully it willpost tomorrow. Here is the regional data concerning infection rates.

    Regional baselines for the 2018-2019 influenza season are:
    Region 1 — 1.8%
    Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont
    Region 2 — 3.1%
    New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands
    Region 3 — 2.0%
    Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia
    Region 4 — 2.2%
    Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee
    Region 5 — 1.8%
    Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin
    Region 6 — 4.0%
    Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas
    Region 7 — 1.6%
    Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska
    Region 8 — 2.2%
    Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming
    Region 9 — 2.3%
    Arizona, California, Hawaii, and Nevada
    Region 10 — 1.1%
    Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington

    Region 6 is hot. Colorado has the highest number of cases for a state in terms of area.

    You would expect California and New York to have the highest caseloads due to population density.Watch any area that has illegal alien activity due to the historical 2008-2009 pandemic that started in Mexico.

    For those in Arizona where H3N2 influenza is the prevalent strain.

    ht tps://www.healio.com/pediatrics/influenza/news/online/%7Bcd07df59-6ff0-4ed6-bf31-ffc3b2adafc7%7D/1-in-5-kids-with-flu-had-neurological-symptoms-during-2016-2017-season
    1 in 5 kids with that strain in 2016-2017 had neurological issues.

    If your kids have these symptoms:
    Worst headache of their life
    High fever
    Problems smelling or tasting
    Stiff neck
    Light sensitvity (light hurts their eyes)

    GET THEM TO THE ER AND TELL THE TRIAGE NURSE! The infection might have gone to their brain via the nasal passage to the cribiform plate to the olfactory bulb to the brain and caused meningitis. They typically will do a spinal tap which means inserting a needle to draw cerebrospinal fluid. It hurts so be prepared to calm your child. Hopefully they have not developed secondary bacterial infections which is more difficult to treat.

  39. Maranatha says:

    You know about Colorado, but New Mexico and Georgia just went RED which is the highest alert level. You should be very vigilant if in those states. You should be topping off supplies. You should be social distancing.

    If schools are canceled, make sure your kids know NOT to hang out and have pizza parties as they are likely to suggest.

    Obviously the worst place to be is in a hospital now or grocery aisle around coughing feverish sick people looking for cold and flu remedies.

  40. Maranatha says:

    Alabama, South Carolina, New Jersey, and Maryland just went orange. That is the next to highest alert level for contagion. Take appropriate action especially if pregnant.

    Kentucky, Louisiana, and NYC are pale orange and the next step down.

    This is looking like a bad epidemic.

  41. Maranatha says:

    Fluview posted.

    Jumped from nine to nineteen states with high activity.

    Note the following.

    High levels of resistance to the adamantanes (amantadine and rimantadine) persist among influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 and influenza A(H3N2) viruses (the adamantanes are not effective against influenza B viruses).

    These antivirals are useless. Antivirals are taken to reduce them from mutiplying and to lessen symptoms so ensure the prescription is something else especially if infected in Arizona.

  42. Maranatha says:


    Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, NYC, New Jersey, Louisiana, Oklamahoma, and Texas just went RED.

    Arizona, Nevada, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Virginia, and Massachussets are orange.

  43. Maranatha says:

    TSA is calling for a mass sickout (just like when LEOs have “blue flu”) due to the government shutdown. That would shut down the airlines and create havoc.

    So don’t confuse that with the RSV and influenza outbreaks.

  44. Maranatha says:

    Disqus’ pc filter stinks.

    US Soldiers are being sent to Gabon to then go to the DRC.

  45. Maranatha says:

    Bloomberg is writing articles that the 2018-2019 influenza will be less severe by comparing it to the 2017-2018 wave when the data is incomplete and just now is when it’s hitting. That is extremely premature given some states are seeing vastly more versus last year despite being in more states last year.
