Skip to comments.The Flu Is FAR WORSE Than We’re Being Told: Tens Of Thousands Of Americans Are DYING

We all know that this years flu season is bad. I have been pouring over numbers and reports over the past few days, and its actually even worse than were hearing about. Tens of thousands of Americans are dying. Its now worse than the 2009 swine flu outbreak and is on track with the 2014-15 strain. And its not showing any signs of slowing down.
Despite this, the media is downplaying the severity of the flu and the government makes the statistics pretty difficult to find. Are they trying to avoid a panic? Do they know something we dont?
Heres what you need to know about why this years flu is so dangerous.
This Years Flu Strain Is More Deadly
The dominant Influenza strain this year is H3N2. This particular strain has a history of causing more hospitalizations and more deaths. According to the CDC:
In the past, H3N2-predominant seasons have been associated with more severe illness and higher mortality, especially in older people and young children, relative to H1N1- or B-predominant seasons. Between 1976 and 2007, for example, CDC estimates that an average of 28,909 people died from flu during H3N2 seasons, compared to 10,648 people during non-H3N2 predominant years.
Thats a difference of 18,261 adults each year. And thats in a good year.
In addition to H3N2 producing a more serious infection in general, this years particular H3N2 influenza virus is particularly virulent. The number of deaths due to influenza or complications to the flu, such as pneumonia (a secondary bacterial infection following influenza), varies from year to year.
An August 27, 2010 MMWR report entitled Thompson MG et al. Updated Estimates of Mortality Associated with Seasonal Influenza through the 2006-2007 Influenza Season. MMWR 2010; 59(33): 1057-1062., provided estimates of the range of flu-associated deaths

It's Hussein's fault.
Sounds like a bad SHOT, as in the 1970s.
Wasn’t H3N2 in this and at least last year’s flu shots?
This flu season will not peak until the middle of March. Wife and I had it and got through it. But just because you’ve had one strain doesn’t mean you won’t get another strain.
A friend of mine, age 54, died last week of the flu. I know it is deadly.
I looked it up a couple of weeks ago.
I didn’t get shot this year, but did last year.
I figure that I got all the benefit they got to give.
90% of the deaths claimed to be caused by flu had other medical conditions involved. It’s a total fallacy to blame the flue for all the deaths that they claim are caused by the flue. The flu vaccine is known to be only about 30% effective. The vaccine is pushed to support the pharmaceuticals.
Locally, the flu seems to be waning. Before Jan 1, my wife, who works at a stand alone emergency room, said they were seeing up to 10 flu patients a day. Now, it is down to about 1. She attributes it to the bad weather where people stayed home.
Sorry to hear this. I’m telling my elderly parents to stay home as much as possible.
FWIW this is the Centennial of the great Spanish Influenza of 1918.
Propaganda from Big Pharm.
This year it is reported to be less than 10% effective.
I think I heard “Baby Can You Dig Your Man” on the radio today.
Every year or this year?
Vitamin D for Influenza:
We had BOTH strains PLUS strep at the same time at my house two weeks ago. We got a shot of antibiotics for the strep and took 50K IU of d3 when we got home. We took 10K IU at bedtime and 10K IU again the next morning. Within 36hrs fever and aches were gone. Well, except for where we got the antibiotic shot :P
The gov’t is SO anti-science.
The dark man or the old woman?
