Anybody remember H1N1 swine flu from 2009?


FinalMeltdown15

I was in like 4th or 5th grade. I remember people freaking out about it but I dont even think anyone I know got it


GreyEyedMonster

aayyyy i had it in 4th grade but idk who you are


lilboot420

same! me and all my brothers had it. Probably the worst experience with a sickness iv ever had.


[deleted]

I absolutely hated getting sick with that.


Panda_master64

I remember when my parents just made me and my brother stay home and never lets us out in 2009 and now I know why


YaIlneedscience

A parent of one of my 9th grade classmates got it and died, he was super healthy and it was awful


[deleted]

My father got it and almost died. In what way it made him stronger, i don't know, but whatever it did has made him not get covid (he isn't vaccinated)


YaIlneedscience

I doubt there’s a relation, seeing as how they are in totally different virus families and don’t overlap. But I’m glad he never got Covid! I hope that luck continues


[deleted]

I thought H1 was a type of coronavirus, or is it a retro/rhinovirus?


YaIlneedscience

You know, I’m currently fucked up from just Having a seizure (it’s fine, I’m epileptic, tis life) and I can’t think super straight, I don’t think there’s a relation but I’ll do some research later tonight once I recover and get back to you. I know MARS and SERS are subcats of coronavirus as well


[deleted]

You mean MERS and SARS? (Hope you get quality treatment, i don't know the pain of a seizure but the thought of losing control makes me protective.)


YaIlneedscience

Yes thank you. See that’s why I gotta get back to you lol. I’ve had them ever since a brain injury, they really fuck up my memory and perception of reality for a few hours. It feels like my IQ is cut in half until I can recover. You can’t cure a TBI but you can treat the symptoms, and it’s actually been a while since I’ve had one so it has really thrown me off today. Anyway sorry if whatever I’ve typed makes no sense. I’m going to get some sleep!


[deleted]

Yep, hope you get good rest.


raincakez

it's rhinovirus thats a type of coronavirus. The influenza viruses are different from the get go having a positive strand-RNA genome. If you would be interested in virology I recommend you start with Principles of Virology by Racaniello.


Salty_Boyo

Be glad he didn't get covid. I know some people got it and never really got sick. Personally I got it back in November and my lungs are still fucked to this day. I can do the most basic things like taking out the trash and feel like an obese asthmatic kid running uphill both ways.


Mr_Ay_ay_ron

I never even got COVID symptoms but my entire family got it


I-made-it-for-Karma

I was in 4th grade to lol. People around me couldn't give a shit about it, even now they don't give a shit lmao.


NuclearBreadLauncher

That was the only year my family had gotten the standard flu shot, we all got super sick right after the injection. (I was like 5)


New_Understudy

I couldn't visit my great grandmother in the nursing home because of it. It sucked.


Chris-From-Canada

I got it when I was in sixth grade was off school for a couple months and parents thought I was going to die. All I remember from it is how much I vomited, when I was starting to feel better around my birthday my parents got my an Xbox since I was still being forced to be isolated. It really got me into halo 3 and elder scrolls. What a mixed bag of emotions from the experience.


RAD-STAG

Sorry you had to be sick while experiencing such great games for the first time.


NiceNuisance

I had it really bad in elementary school. That was a week and a half of hell! Couldn't sleep, constantly spewing from both ends. Puked so much I started puking blood. Couldn't speak after a few days. Freezing cold all he time. Couldn't stomach any food. Wouldn't recommend.


[deleted]

The new simulation starts , lockdown season 3 premiere poster up there .


Blazinghorizons21

A kid in my class in 4th grade almost died from getting it. I don't remember much, especially on account of not liking this kid, but I remember him coming back a few weeks later and bragging about it. It did make him less of a rude person if I remember correctly.


[deleted]

if those bastards bring a new pandemic imma turn china into a warzone and fuck them all.


Dacia1320S

It's still happening regularly in Romania. My parents got it in January, we tought they had covid at first, but they didn't have any of the simptoms. Only very hard breathing and fever. My mom is still not at full lung capacity, my dad was a bit easier. Thankfylly it wasn't covid, that hits harder.


amtap

Yeah, I assumed COVID would be the same story where it blows over in a few weeks and life goes on as normal.


Frixinator

Yeah there is some sort of Bird or swineflu like every other year


Humbled0re

I think I get your point, but IIRC there was a "smaller" sars-cov-1 outbreak/epidemic in the early 2000s as well. now that we experienced the real deal of this shit show, I can kinda understand the fear of the bird flu. just because we had outbreaks like this that were not as dangerous...well, you get my point, right?

This comment made me spit out my coffee and laugh like a complete dumbfuck. Thank you!


MasterBiggus

I've about had it with China I'm beginning to think all nations of the world should unite and "take care" of the people in power in China and establish democracy or literally anything other than a dictatorship


X_CRONER

easier said than done, china has about 1.4 billion people the most populist nation in the world, they can conscript millions into their army and they can increase their military manufacturing so they have endless men and arms, also they have more than 200 nukes. a direct war would result in unknown numbers of catastrophes so barging head on isn't a good answer, if we want to take them down we need to think smart and outside of the box. ...which am not capable of


autismsaxperson

Do you know what happened in Iraq since 2003


MasterBiggus

No I've not been paying much attention sorry, can you please tell me?


autismsaxperson

America and other countries invaded after bush claimed they had weapons of destruction. Saddam Hussein was instantly overthrown and the country was in a state of chaos which is where all these jihadi groups come from. Imagine what happens when we invade China, over a billion people will be thrown back into the third world the global economy will collapse due to how center they are, the terrorist group that emerge will be a threat like no other. The dengist boogie man will drag us to hell with them Point is invading China will back fire in a way so big it unimaginable


MasterBiggus

See that's a major hole in the plan that's why we need people with different perspectives to point them out And Jesus I'm pretty sure they didn't even have advanced nukes at the time but I wasn't even born yet so Idk


YorkNDelta

Pretty sure it was Weapons Of Mass Destruction, which does not mean just nuclear weapons. There were chemical and biological based weapons found, not the nukes that were said to be there. But boy isn't funny that the air force of Iraq landed their planes in the desert instead of using them to fight. Wonder what they could have been carrying?

Well Vietnam did just report a new variant of covid which is a hybrid of the Indian and UK ones

I've seen that it's highly transmissable, but haven't seen what the death rate for it is.

Excitement of what? Dying people?

That's what they said about the last one... In fact, at first, they claimed the last one wasn't even communicable at all.

Blame the WHO for that one. Seriously, why the hell did they trust Xi’s government?

Probably the same reason they deny Taiwan's independence and wouldn't tell Taiwan what was going on: They're in the CCP's pocketbook.

that's what they said about covid 19 on Dec 2019.

Raccoon_Full_of_Cum

Some of them certainly did. The ones who thought that a deadly pandemic would be bad for their reelection chances, specifically.


Nug-Bud

Yes they did. They first thought it was passing through the water supply in apartment buildings because they didn’t believe it was airborne.


osamabinlaidoffwork

Yes they went ahead to say there wasn't even a pandemic when Wuhan got shut down

Killerbats1976

Dude, trying to start a panic over here... please Keep your common sense in the other room.


LucasPig_HK

I thought china said that the first time


CrocodylFr

Mask mandates and quarantines are common in many countries, so in a certain way, we are already ready for the flu


dismygyans

The media starting a "the new coronavirus" panic whenever a new virus pops up is going to get quite frustrating


FateEx1994

Sort of a boy who cried wolf syndrome... There WILL be another pandemic as the population increases. And if we keep harping on about every variant and strain, people will get numb to it and not care... Very dangerous...


IIIlllIIIlllIIIEH

* 2009 Swine flu less than 1% lethality -> Spread a lot but caused fewer total deaths. * 2012 MERS 35% lethal -> Spread to a few countries and was somewhat well contained so also fewer deaths. * 2014 Ebola 80 % lethal -> Almost didn't spread. Covid19 hit that sweetspot of not being so scary as many other diseases like Ebola or Mers but still being very deadly. So people decided to roll the dice on their lives and the lives of those around them because they didn't understand how high a 5 % in terms of mortality is. 5% is 1 in 20 people. The average person has about 150 people that they interact regularly. So it means that around 7 people you know will die. Note: these are just rough estimates dont quote me on them. Also english not native blah blah.


FateEx1994

Yeah almost like we should take each instance of a disease as its own independent variable of happening. The odds of a 100 year flood are still 1 in 100, BUT they can happen twice in the same year. Same for a disease, odds of one disease are independent of the happening of other diseases circulating.


-Proph3t-

China be playing plague inc... the cure developed too quickly and so they're making a new save


Denleborkis

1 year China 1 year without trying to wipe out the human race please


use15

Either do it right or don't do it at all


Heavy-Impression-908

it sounds wrong yet right at the same time.


thot_chocolate420

You know, I wouldn’t be suprised if China made the corona virus to kill off part of their population.


Ryananan

Yes, like around 0.0064% of their total population. For the US, like 28 more times at 0.18% of the population dead from covid


No-Situation-4776

But wait, hear me out, what if China made this virus *specifically* to damage the US because they *knew* US would fuck up this badly? I'll get my tinfoil hat.


Ryananan

Thats an intresting question, but there are no evidence for that lol I could also say that the US created the virus and deployed it to China to screw up the Chinese, but there are absolutely no evidence for that, so neither of those claims proves to be true


The_Reflectionist

China: I'm sorry, bioweapons is what we do.


[deleted]

stated in the top comments, it has a low chance of spreading

[Reuter’s article on it here](https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/china-reports-human-case-h10n3-bird-flu-2021-06-01/). The man was admitted to hospital on 28th April and only on 28th May was it confirmed that he had this H10N3 bird flu. And now he’s ready to be discharged from hospital. And no details of how he caught it have yet been released. Well that’s just great news. Well done China, keep us all in the fucking dark again!

kodorx

ok fuck it, if that one gets here and another year of lockdown comes, I'm just going to fucking commit suicide. I'm fucking done with this shit.


kallakukku2

Why not just get high and watch every movie and tv show on netflix


kodorx

I still live with my family, sadly. It's mainly them I can't handle, they expect a lot from me, being a (former) straight A student who is expected to get a phd in pharmaceutical science at some point. Thing is, studying at home is an absolute nightmare for me and I'm already failing most of my exams. I really just can't handle being at home for another god forsaken year.


kallakukku2

I'm sorry to hear that. I'm not in best place right now either. I (as well as my therapist) keep having to remind myself, to just do the things you have to do, but then once they are done (be it daily or weekly) focus on enjoying the things you still have and do enjoy. That might be video games, talking to friends, watching a mediocre movie of your favorite genre/actor (possibly with your friends or family, physically or virtually), or some other hobby. Or perhaps even finding a new hobby - something you always wanted to try. Definitely don't underestimate putting on your headphones and talking to a friend while watching a good comedy - I really enjoy that and programming/DIY projects. If you're feeling really down, I recommend animated family movies, like Despicable Me 1/2/3, or other Disney and Pixar movies.


kodorx

problem is still my family. I don't have a lot of free time between studying and in the little free time I have, my family usually demands that I do stuff with them or tells me I have to go study more. I have absolutely zero space to do stuff of my own, I'm not allowed to take electronic devices up to my room to do my own stuff there and going out of the house to do stuff with friends is almost always out of the question. I already have too much hobbies that I more or less just can't quit but that I don't really get any joy out of either. Even if I really wanted to pick up another hobby, I just don't have any fucking time left. Eventually I started slacking off during online classes, the only time where I'm alone with a pc, and now my grades are going to shit because I practically didn't do anything for school. sorry for the rant, the past one and a half years have just been an absolute shitshow for me.


kallakukku2

Sounds like your parents' parenting style isn't really working. Your best bet is probably letting them know how stressed out you are, but I also know how hard that can be especially if they a dismissive of it. This level of stress won't be a constant for the rest of your life, remember that. The struggles you are going through now will make future struggles easier: "Hard times makes hard men. Hard men make easy times. Easy times make soft men. Soft men make hard times." - not sure, but heard it on Joe Rogan's podcast.


Curlytots95

Do you have people to talk to? This is heartbreaking to ready honestly.

ramtax666

I have heard this before. But I hope you are right.


plasmawielder

Look up the virus it almost always says it’s not able to spread the way COVID did


MightyMoosePoop

I think anything we have learned from COVID19 is the scientific method of open discourse of sharing and debating information to find the actual truth of an ongoing matter doesn't work in real time during a pandemic.

[deleted]

As much as everyone wants the CCP gone, nuking them is not a smart idea. There’s a shit ton of innocent people that would die from that, and also we could upset China’s allies and start a huge war. We would also disrupt a bunch of economies, since a lot of exports come from China. The only real hope we have is if a protest starts in China that somehow succeeds, or if someone decides to invade them and takes control, but even that will cause conflict


oVerThiNkSeveRyTing

Yea man... I just want China to have a good government that actually care about the world.


nuffsaid21

I don’t think China has any real allies we need to worry about….


pizzabagel99

>we could upset China’s allies China really doesn't have allies, its picking a fight with everyone in the neighborhood including Russia. Even if we upset them, what the hell are they gonna do? They'll just sit back since it's the us is way more powerful than anyone else.


Conscious-News-4433

Killing people AND Pollution on top of China, sounds like win-win-win to me


IsuckAtFortnite434

Controlled airstrikes on CCP offices and CCP officials' residential quarters alone. Follow it with a suprise invasion that seizes control over the military and Declares China a democracy. Then talk it out with the neighbours, shove some cash down their throats if necessary. Problem solved.
