    Not sure where to put this( Mods please place in right forum)
    This new flu that is going around is Bad... Here where I am it had reached pandimic level according to the hospital and the news refuses to cover it. My wife just lost her best friend this morning to it. She was fine sat morning and then all of a sudden she just went out of her mind. When they got here to hospital her bp had went through the roof . The Dr told them it was the new straind of flu which he told then that it was actually and old strains that they thought had been gone for years... Please watch out for early signs this mess is killing people and no one is saying anything about it. The hospital here is full and people are not responding to the treatments

    My heart goes out to your wife on the loss of her friend. She will be in my prayers.

    I have been trying to get news for this. It is hitting pandemic levels, says the news but that is really all they tell you. I checked CDC but it keeps bringing me to 2009 H1N1. This flu is not getting diagnosed because (IMO) 1. I think it goes after your weak spot and 2 many drs. think it is a cold.

    Simple, It takes Years, and sometimes Decades, for a Flu Strain to die out..... Even if there is a specific Vaccine for it. This is because the Vaccine only causes AntiBodies, that munch on the Virus, to be formed in the Hosts Blood Stream, but the Virus still does Infect the Host, and still can be passed on, while in it's early stages, before the AntiBodies, do their thing..... .....

    The dr was saying it is a strain that has been gone for 50 or more years

    first off, condolences to your wife on the loss of her best friend.
    From what I understand, the "current" flu that is "epidemic" this year is the H1N1, which was the bad flu from a few years ago (5 as @BTPost said). The Dr. should be able to report on the exact strain of flu, not just say that it hasn't been around for years but is "new". If it is H1N1, I've heard many reports on the new about how it's hitting those that would normally be able to fight it off (kids/teens and young adults) especially hard.

    And yes, where is "HERE", by your user name are you in TN? if so West, Mid, or East?

    West Tn sorry for not saying that.. The Dr said it wasn't H1N1 just called it the old timey flu saying that this flu should not still be around. I know of at least 5 people that has died in the past 2 weeks according to him

    Old strains are probably still around, kept in medical research or biological weapons labs. At least that's what I think.

    That's what I am thinking also either its a miss diagnosis or somebody let something out all I know is this has made me take notice

    Panic is a big concern when dealing with the Public. They would rather see us die wholesale than to deal with a public out of control!
    H1N1 is killing all kinds of people, Then there's the Swine Flu, just getting started. There we're over 15 million cases of Dengue Fever reported in South America and also In the middle East right now.
    If you ever watched Steven Kings " THE STAND" or "OUTBREAK", "CONTAGION" the way the military handled those outbreaks is pretty typical to what one might expect from the Authorities!

    that site I sent to you IS talking about a mystery flu that's killing people.
    I find it to be a very useful, yet slightly disturbing site![dunno]

    I have no clue how bad the flu is in our area. The news is so focused on football. Because I am an optimistic person, I am hoping that all this cold weather will help kill the germs (yeah right). As for me, I had 2 co-workers that came in with the flu, I am currently not 100%, I am fighting something.
