Someone said swine flu concerns are exaggerated?
The swine flu has hospitalized many young people in an aboriginal community. The average age of those hospitalized is 35.
An early story I read on this one also talked about the school and lots of students suffering from the flu.
What I said earlier is that school are a hub for spreading disease, and with the rush to make cuts janitorial services have been cut making the spread of disease through school more likely. Our janitorial services to our school just had a large cut.
The community I am in had something like 85% of the population wiped out in the 1918 flu. The population went from something like 2000 to about 300.
And look at the consequences of the flu in the Manitoba community, people with other medical needs are having their procedures delayed.
They are borrowing ventilators to handle the hospitalizations. If this spreads how many ventilators will there be available to borrow?
