First, there was the “Aussie Flu,” now there is a “French flu,” and according to health officials, its headed for the United Kingdom. The flu shot has failed at a massive level, socialized medicine in the UK is collapsing, and many believe that the CDC is inflating the number of flu cases by using versions of fuzzy math.
Its all become a lot of flu drama and now there seems to be no end in sight.
Agnes Buzyn, the French Health Minister, is telling parents to stop sending their children to school if the show any flu indicators. In the few days following Christmas, roughly 11,500 cases of flu were reported in French emergency rooms. With cases surging just over the channel in England, health officials now fear that this new strain is on the move. Officials fear that NHS workers in the UK are “undervaccinated” for the flu. In an article posted on the Sunday Telegraph, hospital staff are failing to get the flu shot.
“It comes amid a deepening NHS winter crisis, with 24 hospital trusts declaring ‘black alerts’ last week, as pressures threatened to overwhelm them, and thousands of patients stuck in ambulances outside hospitals as flu rates soar.”
Half of all cases of flu may not even show symptoms, yet actively spread the illness.
French Flu Symptoms
- Body aches
- Minor congestion
- Sore throat
- Vomiting and diarrhea
These all seem like symptoms of any regular flu?
What’s further odd is that health officials are so adamant about pushing a flu shot that’s been publically condemned as a failure. Even if the flu shot lives up to its dismal 10% success rate, the odds would be more favorable simply pushing for better hand washing hygiene and encouraging workplaces to be more lenient with sick days. It seems this has become an opportunity to advertise the flu shot, instead.
