@Nash_Vol97 Did they ever make a call where your wife works? We are still coming to the office, but I'm really uncomfortable with it because my wife has asthma and my son is very susceptible to catching viruses (for example, even though he gets a flu shot, he gets the flu almost every year...he was born 6-weeks premature...not sure if that has anything to do with it or not). Anyway, I'm curious to know how other healthcare facilities are handling non-clinical workers.
Perhaps. But you have to remember that a lot are getting sick at the same time with Covid-19. Flu cases are spread out, plus people can have some immunity to the flu, vaccines for protection, and antivirals for treatment. As far as the percentage of deaths per cases, it will be a while before we know the true scope.
The Spanish Flu killed as many as 3% of Americans who contracted it. One difference is it targeted younger people. Some theories are that older generations had some immunity to that strain from previous flu seasons.
