:? I’ve been reading about the spread of Hong Kong Flu in 1968 when 80,000 died.
We had no shut down, mainly because the media was much less active than today.
I have struggled to find out how many health workers were affected back then. I think hospitals were possibly healthier places then. Matron would come round and open windows to ventilate the wards, and if you had a lung complaint you were wheeled out onto an open air balcony. If the steam fired soot didn’t kill you, nothing else would!
More worrying is the prospect of rolling out 5G. You can’t block that with a face mask or antiseptic wipes. Most of us will be unsuspecting guinea pigs unless someone on here knows more about the science?
It will be long time before any increase in cancer rates show up. Perhaps we should be demanding data from places in the world where higher transmission levels were deemed necessary.
I had that Hong Kong Flu in 68, I was 11 & still remember it like it was yesterday.
I got off the train from Dundee hadn't felt so good on the train, bit of a headache, walking home I started puking & then shivering & shaking uncontrollably, felt absolutely deathly. I managed to get home, I was so glad to make it, later on was totally delirious, my bed was soaking for days. Took me a week to feel anything like & I was left like a little skeleton.
F****n' horrible, wouldn't wish it on anyone.
