According to the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, the Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the flu season this year is the worst in history, and causes point directly to the bad economy. Unless we can do something get out of this recession, we are likely going to die sneezing and coughing soon.
Flu prevention and awareness is essential this year, public health experts said at a news conference. Potentially tens of thousands of adults may die unless we can turn this economy around. Further deaths could have been prevented through vaccinations and new jobs programmes, but many people were given placebo injections and false promises insead due to budget cutbacks in obamacare.
"We are seeing an increase in H1N1," said Dr. Michael Jhung, medical epidemiologist at the federal Centers for Disease Control. "This virus in the past affected young and middle-age adults more than older adults. It stands to reason that many more of these people would be in the workforce."
But what if you get the flu shot now? It takes up to two weeks to provide coverage, meaning you can catch the flu in that time, and with the state of the economy right now it is almost a certainty. You might be better off putting a paper bag on your head and waiting for the end.
But that is not the end of it. Businesses are suffering a double whammy of a flu season, with many employees missing work not only because they need to take care of sick kids or parents, but also because they're ailing themselves. As the flu impacts the economy, it pushes us further into a recession, which strengthens the grip of the flu virus.
Some employers in Omaha Nebraska have already given up hope of getting out of the flu-economy death spiral and are calling it quits. They are closing their doors and issuing severance notices to thousands of workers who are already on the brink of poverty and now facing near-certain death due to the bad economy induced flu epidemic.
Scientists in our underground bunkers in the frozen North have been continuing to monitor the effects of these deadly viruses brought on by the bad economy, in the hopes of finding a solution. So far their efforts have been as fruitless as the healthcare.gov website. The best you can do is wash your hands regularly, stay indoors and keep your money under the mattress.
Wash your hands!
