    Monitor
    or
    Control and Prevent

    As of today, 2014-02-01, neither the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or independent labs in the State of Texas have published a single genetic sequence sampled during or after that peaking period of the High Intensity genetics.

    Citizens have been blinded and cast adrift by public health leaders to face this storm of record-setting fatality that continues to destroy the lives of healthy, vaccinated adults and children.

    While we and other citizens do recognise the monitoring effort, a touch of controlling and preventing would be beneficial as well.

    Eighth flu-related death reported in Tarrant County

    While a series of influenza cases continues to drop, Tarrant County has reported a eighth flu-related death.

    Six of a deaths tested certain for Type A influenza, though two, including a latest one, tested certain for Type B.

    Type B typically doesn?t means widespread outbreaks like Type A, and it?s mostly found in places such as schools and nursing homes, pronounced Russ Jones, arch epidemiologist for Tarrant County Public Health.

    H1N1, a widespread aria this year, is a Type A strain.
