There have been studies that H1N1 transmits easier thru close contact. Some people will develop mild symptoms and some may be carriers. And the unfortuneate may develop symptoms that will require intensive care.
Some SPs will work thru mild symptoms. I have refused SPs with colds or whatever they had. They only get paid when they work. So like everyone else in the same working condition, they try to work thru it. But close contact fosters virus transmission, etc.
Scientists are only guessing how bad this flu will be. It could be very mild or at worst case lots of deaths.
Will you wait and see? Will you go ahead and weather any storm, if any?
