Like the nuclear thread and the real estate thread, most people will end up with average between worse scenario and best case scenario.

Unless you are immunologically compromised and malnourished, if you contract the flu (there are a variety), you will feel like you are better off dead, but you won't die. Flu shots will plenty of time for the body to learn to create antibodies will likely minimize the symptoms.

Wash your hand often, eat plenty of fruits and veg and spend plenty of time in the sun because UV kills bug in general and carry on.

H1N1/ FLU symptoms


Temperature
Feeling feverish or having a fever of 100F or higher can be an indicator for the flu or H1N1 virus, though not everyone with the flu will get a fever. Fevers are unlikely with a common cold.

Body Aches
Feeling achy all over or getting a headache is another symptom of the flu or H1N1, and not generally associated with getting a cold. This tends to show as more general aches, as opposed to those confined to one area.

Nausea, Vomiting Or Diarrhea
Nausea is the most symptom of the flu, and less likely to occur with a cold. However, if you're vomiting continuously, this can indicate a more severe strain of the flu, and you should seek medical help.

Sore Throat
A sore throat is usually the first indicator of the beginning of illness, whether it's a cold, the flu or worse.

Cough
Coughing occurs when one has a cold or the flu, though if it worsens, that can indicate a more severe strain, like H1N1.

Fatigue
An intense feeling of exhaustion, like not being able to get out of bed, is a sign that you have the flu or H1N1. This does not usually occur with a cold.

Chills
Chills can occur as a result of many kinds of bacterial and viral illnesses, including colds, the flu and H1N1.

Runny Nose
Though a runny nose is most closely associated with a cold, it can also be part of having the flu or H1N1. Be sure to have plenty of tissues on hand to keep germs from spreading.

Dizziness
Dizziness is not a normal symptom for a cold or flu, and should be treated with seriousness.

Dehydration
Dehydration is a serious risk when you're ill, either because you feel too sick to drink or eat, or you've been vomiting and/or having diarrhea. Being dehydrated can indicate H1N1, and you should seek medical attention.

Pain In Stomach Or Chest
Feeling pains in your stomach or chest while or immediately after you have the flu can indicate a serious complication, like pneumonia. Seek medical help immediately.

Discoloured Lips
Discoloured lips can indicate a lung infection, which poses a serious health risk. Be sure to seek medical attention immediately.

Fatal case of H5N1 bird flu reported in Canada
News1130 by The Canadian Press / 1h

EDMONTON (NEWS1130) – A woman from Alberta is the first confirmed fatal case of the bird flu in North America.

Health Minister Rona Ambrose says the case, which was located in Alberta, was an isolated one and that the risk to the general public is very low.

There are reports the woman was on a plane from Beijing to Vancouver and then Vancouver to Edmonton.

She died in hospital.

Doctors don’t know who she contracted the virus but say there is no evidence of person to person transmission.

The World Health Organization says that as of mid-December, there had been 648 laboratory-confirmed human cases of H5N1 flu, reported from 15 countries.
