what about defense, encourage employees to stay home if sick, washing
hands frequently, using lysol wipes on frequently touched items, shared
phones, door handles, bathroom stall doors and knobs. I understand there is
a shortage of anti viral drugs, does anything else work? cipro?
I understand europe has a larger stash but this will probably be a world
wide outbreak and no one will give up stashes.
Also once you get this strain of flu and recover, can you get the same
strain again or are you immune from strain of flu?
