    Even though you got the flu, by getting the flu shot your symptoms should be greatly reduced. The flu shot this year while not 100% effective it is about 42%-47% effective.
    I am in healthcare and I always encourage all my patients and everyone I come into contact with to get the flu shot. 
    Last season 2018-2019 there were almost 1 million hospitalizations and about 80,000 deaths in the USA alone from influenza. This season so far only 15k-30k have died.
    If you take care of yourself and follow your Dr's orders you should be fine, provided you do not have any underlying comorbidities.

    Won't the panthers attack the musicians? Or can they fend them off with their instruments? And who signs up for this? Panthers are still endangered. Leave them alone.

    I always heard that mariners played dice games as cards on the ships may get wet and ruined.

    Twice, now, @monctonguy has referenced/quoted me, so I feel the need to say SOMETHING. I stand by everything I have said. Im not worried about this virus. Im going to go on about my life as I always have.... I control what I can, and worry about nothing I cant control. Hell, I barely worry about things I CAN control. Worrying doesnt solve problems...it creates them. 
    Saying people should be more concerned about things they are more likely to die from isnt trivializing corona virus.  I 100% believe people should be MORE concerned with other aspects of their health and everyday life than corona virus. Until the likelihood, the numbers of deaths, illnesses and avoidable accidents from the things society is blatantly "flippant" about come close to comparing....that belief wont change.   
    Would my level of concern be different if the epicenter was in the US? Well hell yes it would, just like i care more about a bowling ball over my head than one on the ground....but my opinion and ideas about this are based in fact, not hypothetical, and definitely not in speculation. 
    ....with that, Im done talking about it. Bowing out.....Happy cruising.

    1. What's your favorite thing about cruising? Relaxation, seeing parts of the world, the food, the party? Yes!! And that someone else prepares and brings it to me and then cleans it up!
    2. If you could go on a cruise, anywhere in the world, right now.....where would you go and on which ship? To the Caribbean anywhere on any Oasis class.

    Yeah ...don't do that... you just spread misinformation which is almost as bad as outright lying about something.

    I just really dont understand......I wish people cared about CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE the way they care about some virus.....its exponentially more likely to kill you. Yet, the same people canceling cruises out of fear are lining up at McDonalds for a sack of burgers, killing themselves happily.
