If you have symptoms you are to contact your doctor but if It is the weekend your doctors office is closed. We are told
not to go ER, call your doctor to get a form signed and directions to the testing areas. One cannot get tested without signed form.

We are hunkering down --we watched "I Am Legend" yesterday, maybe "Contagion" today. Looking forward to Tom Cruise in "War of the Worlds"

I just saw this posted on Facebook.

I can't swear to this book's veracity, but apparently something happened...to save the village of Shishmaref.

It's also well documented, that ALL Native American's were hit much harder by this pandemic...than the general European population here in the United States.

Ten myths about the 1918 flu pandemic (click here)

Quote:
Ten Myths About the 1918 Flu Pandemic

The ‘greatest pandemic in history’ was 100 years ago – but many of us still get the basic facts wrong

Pandemic: It’s a scary word.

But the world has seen pandemics before, and worse ones, too.

Consider the influenza pandemic of 1918, often referred to erroneously as the “Spanish flu.”

Misconceptions about it may be fueling unfounded fears about COVID-19, and now is an especially good time to correct them.

In the pandemic of 1918, between 50 and 100 million people are thought to have died, representing as much as 5% of the world’s population. Half a billion people were infected.

Especially remarkable was the 1918 flu’s predilection for taking the lives of otherwise healthy young adults, as opposed to children and the elderly, who usually suffer most. Some have called it the greatest pandemic in history.

The 1918 flu pandemic has been a regular subject of speculation over the last century. Historians and scientists have advanced numerous hypotheses regarding its origin, spread and consequences. As a result, many of us harbor misconceptions about it.

By correcting these 10 myths, we can better understand what actually happened and learn how to prevent and mitigate such disasters in the future.
