Still saying if you havenít gotten a flu shot and post about this, kindly fuck off

I get flu shots every year since my daughter was born, but AFAIK it's still only recommended to infants and the elderly in Yurop.

The flu could probably be eradicated if 80% of the population got their shots every year. Currently the inoculation rate is about half that.

not sure about that, the flu is quite virulent and mutates quite quick, the antigenic drift coupled with how you have many strains lends to a stubborn illness
just consider, even getting inoculated isn't guaranteed effective

I got a flu shot and I still was out cold for a week.  :idont

Sure it triggered less of my asthma because of the shot but even if you get the shot you can still get the flu.



Narrator: That night all but 4 members of the Russian cabinet died of the flu.

yea, the flu shot are highly ineffective. if i remember correctly, they average at around 30-40% effectiveness and are nearly worthless late in the season.

though, speaking on china, only 2% of its population gets the flu shot and yet somehow, they have some of the lowest rates of infection, let alone deaths in the entire world. the point is, centralized governments get shit done and to always trust their methodology in controlling and reporting data. also shark fin soup

In general it just gives your immune system a temporary boost as it produces anti-bodies to get rid of the dormant virus they administer to you.
Plus there's an RNG system in place that potentially gives you a higher autism skill in the process.

I basically use my doctor as a sentient prescription pad now. You have to be very clear and give them direct instructions on whatís on your shopping list. I donít know what the american health care system does to them but you really canít let them direct themselves anymore. Maybe standards are just that low.

The (partial) point is to keep herd immunity high to prevent vulnerable populations (elderly, children, the immunocompromised) from succumbing to deathly illness but it is funny that self described socialists can't grasp basic tenets of collective responsibility.

i used nih/cdc as my source:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16494711?dopt=Abstract
https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/12/1/05-0979_article

This makes no sense, probably a typo. The article itself states that about 500 million people were infected and that about 50 million to 100 hundred million died. Basic math says that's a case fatality rate of 10-20%. 2,5% might be the global risk for any person living at that time on earth.

See this blog article

https://rybicki.blog/2018/04/11/1918-influenza-pandemic-case-fatality-rate/

So yeah, the coronoavirus as of today has a case fatality of 2,1%, a factor of 5 to 10 lower than the spanish flu.

Just a little bit more information people might be interested in.

Quote
While estimates of case-fatality (CF) rates for past influenza pandemics have ranged from about 0.1% (1957 and 1968 pandemics) to 20% (1918 pandemic); the official World Health Organization estimate for the current outbreak of H5N1 avian influenza to date is around 60%. While the real H5N1 CF rate (what it would be if we had perfect knowledge) could be lower (one study suggests that the real H5N1 CF rate is closer to 14Ė33%);

I fucking hate my government:

Quote
.  U.S. ride-hailing application Uber Technologies Inc. said on Saturday that it suspended 240 accounts of users in Mexico who may recently have come in contact with someone possibly infected with the new coronavirus.

A day later the government actually confirmed that it was indeed a confirmed infected (that is now in Los Angeles, where he was diagnosed).

Quote
Mexican state news agency Notimex reported on Saturday that 18 of the 52 Mexican students who are studying in China had returned. Notimex did not specify whether the students are in quarantine.

They were not.
