This flu season is an epidemic: Some died just 2 days after onset of symptoms

The 2017-2018 flu season is now an epidemic — a unusually deadly epidemic:

    • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) declared this season an epidemic, stating the illness is widespread in at least 39 states.
    • Although the flu season hasn’t even peaked yet, CDC epidemiologist Lynnette Brammer said more hospitalizations are being reported and deaths are increasing: “We are starting to see cases of severe disease and we are seeing excess deaths“.
    • California public health officials said the number of deaths and hospitalizations is higher than normal. During the week of Jan. 14, 23 people reportedly died from the flu in the state, bringing this season’s total to 97 deaths. For some perverse reason, neither California nor the CDC record flu deaths among people over the age of 65, which means the number of deaths due to the flu and complications (pneumonia and sepsis) is much higher.

Whereas flu victims typically are older people (age 65 and older) and infants (age 5 and younger), what makes this flu season alarming are two things:

  1. People younger than 65 (and older than 5) have died.
  2. Death comes quickly, in some cases after only 2 days of the flu.

Some examples:
(1) Dylan Winnik, 12, of Palm Beach County, Florida. He died of the flu on January 21, 2018, just two days after he had fallen ill with what his parents thought was the common cold because his symptoms were mild.

(2) Jonah Smith, 17, died December 29, 2017 in Arizona when his heart stopped beating in the backseat of his sister’s car. Smith’s family said he showed no flu-like symptoms except he had complained of a backache. He continued to go to work at a fast-food restaurant and see friends. Doctors said Smith had the flu and pneumonia, and that he might have had “an underlying medical condition,” but the teen was not known to have one.

(3) Kyler Baughmen, 21, died five days after he became sick on December 23, 2017, with a mild cough and runny nose. The body builder celebrated Christmas and went back to work on December 26. The following day, he was rushed to the hospital. He died on December 28 from kidney failure due to septic shock caused by the flu.
(4) Katharine Gallagher, 27, died December 5, 2017 in Tustin, California, five days after she first experienced flu-like symptoms on Thursday night. She went to the doctor on Sunday, and was sent home with antibiotics. Two days later, after she appeared to be getting better that morning, her boyfriend found her dead on the bathroom floor — from severe acute bronchial pneumonia.

(5) Tandy Harmon, 36, died just two days after she went to the hospital with flu symptoms. On January 17, the Oregon mother-of-two in Oregon went to the hospital with flu symptoms, but was told to go home to rest and hydrate. Hours later, Harmon was back in the emergency room, where she quickly declined and had to be placed on life support by that evening. She died two days later on January 19, from MRSA and pneumonia.

(6) Katie Oxley Thomas, 40, of San Jose, California, died of the flu just 48 hours after falling ill. The mother-of-three and marathon runner’s condition declined so quickly that she was moved to intensive care, placed on life support and died all in the span of 15 hours on January 4, 2018. Her family said she had received a flu shot.
(7) Jenny Ching, 51, went to the hospital in Massachusetts with flu-like symptoms. After being diagnosed with the flu she developed an infection and pneumonia. The mother-of-two died on January 6, 2018, just a week after being diagnosed.
There are four flu strains:

  1. The dominant flu strain is H3N2, which often signals a severe season that affects the oldest and the youngest the hardest. CDC epidemiologist Brammer said, “We probably haven’t seen H3N2 peak yet.”
  2. Influenza A is predominating in California.
  3. H1N1 virus
  4. Influenza B: Brammer said it’s possible we will see a wave of H1N1 and influenza B before the season is over.

Brammer claims that this year’s vaccine contains all the circulating viruses. However, the vaccine is not very effective against H3N2. Dr. Michael Osterholm, who directs The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, said the vaccine is, at best, only 10% effective on H3N2.
What to do:

  • Wash hands often.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Stay home if you’re sick.
  • Given the virulence of this season’s flu epidemic, if you get sick, get medical help ASAP. Antiviral drugs like Tamiflu and Relenza are effective only if taken early.

If you’re in the medical field and you know more about this flu epidemic than what we are told publicly, please share your information.

Dr Eowyn . . . . God Bless you for sharing this most critical information with the entire FOTM family. Great article! I have not wanted to get a flu shot, but then since it is only perhaps 10% effective in combating this particular strain of flu–I guess it’s okay. I would like to know from any of you out there . . . how effective, or good an idea is it to get a pneumonia short? Although I am 71 years old, I have never had one, although years ago I used to get flu shots (every darn time… Read more »

A man (no age given) died in our town after being diagnosed with “Type A” flu. He died four days after going to the hospital and being given 25 mg of Promethazine (per the newspaper article). Someone found him lifeless in his home four days after the 19th (hospital visit) so who knows when he actually died. The death wasn’t announced in the paper until today, four days later.
The schools here were closed on Friday because so many people called in sick on Thursday.
STAY HOME if you are sick!

I’ve never had one,but that’s just out of suspicion that the Pharma is using these “shots” with little accountability regarding what’s IN ’em. SO FAR,I’ve survived by just doing the usual common sense things-stay away from people,try not to touch anything that is available to or used by other people,if you DO,clean your hands,clean the surface before you grab, (I have a spray bottle by the door,and everything,including my mail,gets sprayed when I get the mail),try to ingest a little extra Vitamin C every day. I try to get everything done the same day then hibernate the rest of the… Read more »

Especially among school aged kids that died , I wonder how many kids had the flu shot. Most all schools make it mandatory for students to have all shots. Ever research the ingredients in these shots? HORRIFIC!!! Ask to read the insert.

No flu shots for me, Last time I had one was sick for a week. Haven’t had one since. My boss tried to make me get one. He tried to make me sign a paper saying I wouldn’t take the shot. I told him that releasing my health info was against my HIPPA rights. A**ho;e

Thank you for an excellent article. Forgive me, but am I the only one that thinks something is off? Perfectly healthy, strong people died in two days? Are we not dealing with a flu at all? We’re any of these people vaccinated?
I used to get vaccinated yearly until one year about 10 years or so ago, they said they had put something extra in the serum that year and I became deathly ill and stayed that way for five months. I suspect until it cleared my system. Not been vaccinated since.

I wish they would tell how many of the dead received the flu vaccination.
I am amazed at the logic here at work. Those who are vaccinated are deathly afraid of anyone who is not.
I love to ask, “if your vaccinated, why ate you worried about me? Unless it is because you know deep down the shot is worthless.”

So what caused this? What are they spraying? What deadly virus was released? Vaccines are not safe; the flu shot is not safe. Healthy eating, getting enough sleep, washing your hands, using essential oils; exercise. It seems to me that they released something as a test to see what would kill people so they could scare us with fake reports of a deadly virus that we will only be safe from if we take a new vaccine they are cooking up !

After the fall in vaccination rates that has likely resulted from people becoming better educated on the matter of vaccines over the past few years or so, a sudden, “unusually deadly epidemic” is precisely what I’d expect to see. That’s not to say that this isn’t real at all. The timing just makes it appear like good marketing to me — regardless of whether people are actually dying from the flu or not.

“Marketed as flu medicine, Tamiflu is actually a risky nervous system damaging, hallucinogenic drug that causes some children to go into seizures, wild delusions, and twitching fits.
The FDA has on file over 550 cases of confirmed hallucinations from Tamiflu in the U.S. since 2009. Each case has traumatized and altered the lives of individual families that can only stand by and watch helplessly as their child hallucinates and loses control of their mind and motor control.”

The CDC and our Health Dept. carry lots of weight. The amount of money passing through hands and the amount to be made is massive.
A physician charges 100-200 for injection, putting a heavy weight on our insurance companies and passed in to those that don’t even get an injection. Follow the money and you have an answer.

With all due respect to the author- I must advise people to use caution in this report, I have seen more than enough evidence to believe that there is a very real and present danger in VACCINATIONS, I have seen credible reports that government agencies have been involved in “scares,” stories of epidemics that were contrived, exaggerated etc. for shall we just say “questionable motives,” in regards to influenza specifically, vaccinations have very little effect on this infection due to 1. it is viral and difficult by nature to treat 2. composed of many different constantly changing viruses, which make… Read more »

Doesn’t anyone here remember when Baxter Pharmaceutical was caught red handed putting out a vaccine that had living flu virus material in it about 7 or 8 years ago? How do we know this spins real or hype, and if it is real how do we know this is not a bioweapon that has been deliberately released? Then there is the fact that flu vaccines still have mercury and aluminum in them, and according to Mercola, adults who get more than 3 flu shots show a 25% increase in Alzheimer’s. People die from these vaccines and have also been crippled… Read more »

Biblical support for those who wish to avoid vaccinations for spiritual and religious reasons include the following law prohibiting genetic engineering or the use of its products: Leviticus:19:19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen [plant] and woolen [animal] come upon thee. Relevant reasons for God’s warning in this regard includes the fact that bovine (cow) fetal serum is commonly used in the manufacturing process of vaccines. So are monkey kidney cells, chicken embryo parts,… Read more »

Apparently having an optimum level of vitamin d (i.e. at least 5000 units according to this ‘expert’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRmSV8OUzq0 ; that is, along with vitamin k to balance it) is an important way to prevent the flu or cold. Also, oil of wild oregano, and mega doses of non-gmo vitamin c is helpful (preferably wholefood, even intravenously if very ill). Other remedies including a raw ‘drink’ made with fresh lemon juice, garlic, ginger and olive leaf extract and/ or elderberry, cayenne pepper…colloidal silver is useful too. Otherwise, get plenty of sunlight or take vitamin d supplements (i.e. 5000 units), sleep well… Read more »

PS This looks interesting too (however, I’m not very familiar with it)…it’s MMS…see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Amvrvme4rBs and https://www.naturalnews.com/041392_master_mineral_solution_malaria_cure_Red_Cross.html

From what I have heard and read and been told, it seems wise not to take the flu shot: I had a former doctor (over 20 years ago) who told me the flu shot was ineffective and just didn’t work. I have also read and heard that there is a real danger with the vaccine because some of them contain somewhat live or “attenuated” strains of the influenza virus—this, in addition to the fact that many vaccines contain mercury and/or aluminum. I have also read that Tamiflu is, or can be, a dangerous drug that does not necessarily work. The… Read more »

NB MMS is a highly controversial “remedy”…please research thoroughly…I’m not sure if it really helps or not in the long-run. I think there are other remedies that appear equally useful and have less controversial/ potential side effects.

Regarding Flu and Pneumonia shots. I have not had any flu shots. I cannot remember the last time I had one and I am 77. As to Pneumonia, I was wondering why Kaiser Health had one of the lowest incidences of Pneumonia in their hospitals. It is because they push the shot. So 3 years ago I had the first of 2 shots, the one for viral pneumonia. Within 3 days I was sick for a month with high fevers. Since I was in a foreign country after getting the US shot I had to nurse myself. A year ago… Read more »

I’ve noticed for months here in southern cal, seems everywhere I have traveled, I have seen advertisements for the flu shot, even on billboards. they all read the same scare mantra: ‘get the flu shot, so you don’t get the flu’. they even offer rewards for getting a flu shot like free coupons or gift cards. It seems eerily suspicious that these aggressive flu shot campaigns coincide with flu “epidemic”. And don’t forget, anyone who has flu-like symptoms they will label as “flu” and anyone who has flu-like symptoms and dies (even if what killed them wasn’t the flu, the… Read more »

My husband’s doctor told him that he gets $100 from Medicare for each patient who accepts a flu shot. That was enough information for me to confirm that I will never get one.
I have never had a mammogram, never took HRT pills, etc. I use the medical system only for specific reasons, such as falling and fracturing my wrist, for which I had wonderful care.
Just read a very good new book: Overediagnosed: Making people sick in pursuit of health. Full of interesting information.

The first thing to consider is that we have “for profit” medicine. That means that there is an automatic inclination to treat patients as customers. The pharmaceutical industry is nothing short of predatory. Just discussing vaccines (there are many other areas of concern), the “mechanics” of the immune system should be understood by anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of biology. Any vaccine depends on a healthy immune system for them to work properly. Introducing any vaccine taxes the immune system. When I was young there were only three or four that were normally administered. Now there are dozens. This in… Read more »
