NYTimes article: Dominant U.S. flu strains resistant to leading antiviral drug
So, now the doctors want to go nuts and waste time and resources coming up with the next big bomb against the flu. I think the time would be better invested informing the public to do the following:
If you're sick, don't go to work, or go out. Stay home. If you're sick and you do have to go out, bring tissues/handkerchief(s), hand wipes, and wear gloves. Cover your mouth when you cough with the crook of your elbow and turn your head away from people while doing so. If you make the mistake of touching a door handle with your bare hand, wipe the door handle with an alchohol wipe or handi wipe. Wash your hands immediately if you make the mistake of coughing or sneezing into them. Use a dry paper towel or part of your sleeve after drying your hands to grab the bathroom door handle.
I know some of my recommendations sound insane, but the flu has a high potential to kill the elderly, infants, and small children as well as other at risk populations. So it's worth it if you're infected to do these things.
That's my swift solution to thousands of doctors and scientists running around trying to use DNA mapping to create the next big flu bomb. The dominant flu viruses are now mutating much faster than modern science can cope. Meanwhile, people are needlessly infecting others and being the agents that actually spread the disease due to lack of being informed of how critical the situation is.
Flu viruses don't spread flu viruses: people do.
There, that's my campaign for the month. Don't just slime someone to death (lol)! Stay home and get better! Call people for help while you're home and have them take precautions to avoid getting and spreading the infection during and after they bring you stuff!
