New Flu Strain

There is enough different about this strain of influenza coming out of Mexico (and it will come out) to raise my concern. First, the virus is genetically different from that complex of antigens to which most in the U.S. have been vaccinated. It is being spread at a time of year which is not usual for influenza. Lastly, it is evidently striking individuals who are not usually so vulnerable. Young, healthy individuals rather than infants and the elderly are affected severely. I recommend staying out of crowds and keeping your hands clean and away from your face. This could be a bad one. A recent article is published here.
