I've been seeing a couple of unsettling ideas around the internet lately...one is that studies are showing that it seems that the antibody counts on people who have had the virus seem to be fading over time....and the second is that the virus has been mutating and that some of the major outbreaks are from new mutations of the virus. These two combined tends to give some support that a vaccine might not be a very good long term solution to the virus. So far the reporting of these two things has not included any projections as to how they would play out in the future so there is no alarm being sounded presently but it surely is something to watch.

Several months ago when someone here asked about what to do about the virus I suggested doing whatever one could to improve their health.....the common reply was that these things could not happen fast enough....WELL.....here is it several months later and it seems that everyone is still here who was here before ....have you people started losing those extra pounds (kilos)....have you started to eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and reduced your fat intake.....have you started exercising regularly.....have you started to get enough sleep.....have you worked on reducing your stress level.....have you started flossing your teeth? You have had plenty of time to get in shape which if you have done that might save your life or even help you have a milder reaction to the virus if you should get it....or is my advise just pearls before swine?

Spanish flu

The Spanish flu, also known as the 1918 flu pandemic, was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic caused by the H1N1 influenza A virus. Lasting from February 1918 to April 1920, it infected 500 million people – about a third of the world's population at the time – in four successive waves. The death toll is typically estimated to have been somewhere between 17 million and 50 million, and possibly as high as 100 million, making it one of the deadliest pandemics in human history.[4][5]
