Flu Widespread in 25 States of the USA

Swine flu season is coming and it looks like the death toll will reach into the thousands unless precautions are taken. Vaccinations are one way of minimizing the risks. But most of the prophylactic measures are a case of too little too late. Swine flu has advanced over the past couple of weeks from 10 states to 25 states

Thus it has more than doubled and this is indeed cause for worry. Among the states affected by the deadly virus may be included: Alabama, Arkansas, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, Oregon, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming. The epidemic has virtually spread to half the areas of the US. It is a sign of trouble indeed. 

The southeast has especially been devastated by this novel disease. Texas in particular has suffered more than other states. It is flu season alright and this malady occurs in the winter months. After February it usually subsides. Meanwhile, two new strains of the flu have emerged from the blue

While there are drugs and other immunization methods of containing the flu, it seems to be getting resistant to cures. The only thing that can be done is to get vaccinated and take antiviral drugs. Other than that avoiding substandard pork is mandatory if you want to avoid contracting swine flu.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
