Know anyone that has/had it

Recommended Posts

I'm just curious, does anyone here know anyone that has, had, or has shown symptoms of this flu? Obviously, I don't know millions of people, but I do know a few. Of all the people that I know, and the people that they know, no one has it, or if they have they didn't know it.

 

My family and I may have had it back in early January. High temps, diarrhea, not able to drink a sip of water without vomiting; all for about 3 days.

I did, and unfortunately she was one of the early deaths in Sacramento California.  She was a teacher to all three of my children growing up......sad times.

I have long suspected that the annual poleaxing usually associated with the influx of Xmas & NY arrivals from Europe & elsewhere may have done exactly as you have described; furthermore an elderly relative in UK was hospitalized with 'pneumonia' in Jan but I suspect the virus was active there long before they knew it too.

 

Thankfully my relative made a full recovery and has since turned 90.

My friend and her son probably had it , but couldn't get tested. This was in UK.

Another friend in UK said 4 of her friends have it (ie . tested as having it). She said only normally tested if you are high risk or hospitalised. In my view you need to do massive testing to control it and also massive antibody testing in anyone recovered / think they have recovered from it. Only then can you control it and get useful data to see how it spreads.

A friend of mine in Germany had it. We didn’t get into the gory details, but he said it felt like a really bad flu. He caught it in Ischgl, Austria while skiing.

well according to the TVF armchair epidemiologists there are thousands and thousands of positive cases that haven't been tested yet so someone must know someone who actually has it?

 

anyone?

 

 

Do I know someone who doesn't know they have it?

Like if a tree falls in the forest....
