Among hospitalized people, older patients are much less likely to be tested for flu than younger patients, the new study found. That’s important, because the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that people over 65 are among those most prone to severe, life-threatening cases of flu.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that people over 65 are among those most prone to severe, life-threatening cases of flu. Patients whose doctors ordered flu tests tended to be younger, around 58 years old on average, versus 66 for people who didn’t get tests. This suggests many of the older patients with flu would have gone undiagnosed and untreated, said senior study author Dr. H. Keipp Talbot, a health policy researcher at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. (Reuters Health) Even though elderly people have the highest rates of hospitalization and death from influenza, a U.S. study suggests that older patients may be less likely to get tested for flu.

Babies hospitalized with flu are likely experiencing their first flu infection—and fighting it with an immature immune system and underdeveloped airways and lungs. To further complicate things, flu symptoms often present differently in babies than they do in older children and adults, making flu infection more difficult for clinicians to spot. They’re the most common flu test performed at hospitals and clinics during flu season.

Last week,15-year-old Kira Molina went to a suburban Atlanta clinic when she wasn’t feeling well. These tests can provide results within approximately 10-15 minutes but are not as accurate as other flu tests. Therefore, you could still have flu, even though your rapid test result is negative.

Other flu tests are called “rapid molecular assays” that detect genetic material of the virus. Rapid molecular assays produce results in 15-20.

Another fact that public health agencies fail to take into account is that in many elderly people (the incidence of influenza is higher in children and the elderly than other age groups) who succumb to multiple illnesses, influenza is usually a secondary complication.

Many of those patients who do seek medical care for suspected influenza do not receive confirmatory laboratory testing because the results of that testing are not likely to affect the choice of therapy or its outcome.

Yet the Department of Human and Health Services found that, with or without a flu shot, pneumonia and influenza hospitalization rates for the elderly are less than one percent during the influenza season.

On one hand, some believe that the use of these tests may reduce antibiotic use in respiratory viral illnesses; others worry that the diagnosis of a common respiratory virus in a febrile young child may be falsely reassuring.

Further investigation reveals that only 20 percent of the elderly patients you serve had flu shots and that 35 percent of the patients who developed flu were admitted for lengthy hospital stays for pneumonia.

Although the incidence was high and difficult to measure (as only a small percentage are laboratory-confirmed cases), it was milder than expected and more likely to affect people under age 65 than seasonal influenza (CDC, 2010e).

  • IMPORTANT: THE CORONAVIRUS TEST
    IS NOT CREDIBLE.
    AVOID THIS TEST AT ALL COSTS.
    By JIM STONE
    The coronavirus test is not credible and is likely to be for clandestine brain access. They claim that the virus destroys the nervous system of a large percentage of people, leaving lasting neurological problems and brain damage. But I would like to ask is it really a virus that does that, or does testing do that? People, coronavirus tests itself, in many cases (there are probably different types) but in many cases, they are obviously what causes brain damage.
    Easy to explain: Many tests (all using the incredibly long “cotton swab”) take their samples from the cribriform plate, which is a millimeter thick bone at the top of the nasal cavity which is perforated with numerous holes that go directly into the brain cavity. These holes are what your olefactory nerves pass through, and there are a lot (the bone is similar to a coarse screen)
    If you want someone to sabotage by planting an underground brain virus, nanotech, or plant a flea to someone, this would be the place to do it because a doctor might be able to take out a flea, but individuals certainly couldn’t without puncturing this very thin bone (it’s not really a bone, it’s about half of the nerves) and anyone trying to extract from there would probably end up killing themselves.
    Any chemical, virus, nanotechnology or whatever they want to put in there will have immediate access to the brain and you can forget to take it out, once it’s in there, it’s in it. It would literally be directly on the brain when placed, and go for it.
    People complain that the tests are excruciatingly painful and that the pain lasts for several days. Why should the tests affect the part of the human body most accessible to the brain? Are those who really do tests? DNA testing is done with a simple mouth swab, and it is ludicrous to think that any virus test when you can supposedly spread it by coughing would not be the same. Something is wrong with these tests. They must GET to be wrong, (or at least the ones that literally dab the brain) No wonder why they hurt for days and GEE, getting your olefactory nerves nailed by whatever is on this swab is probably what makes that people permanently lose their sense of smell.
    COMMON SENSE. I bet you didn’t know how bad this test is.

  • Corona Sample technique
    Nasal and Nasopharyngeal Swab Procedure:

    Position patient with their head back at 45 degree angle, Gently insert the swab (provided with the kit) into the nasal cavity (for nasal swabs) or in the nostril until it reaches the posterior nares (naso-pharyngeal area for nasopharyngeal swabs). Hi Vision Diagnostic,

  • The President of Tanzania recently gave a speech in which he said they used the coronavirus test kits on a goat, a pawpaw, a jackfruit and a car engine and they all came back positive. So either 1. The tests don’t work. or 2. The test kits are contaminated with corona virus. His speech is here on YouTube.

  • The swab goes all the way up to your brains, and it gives a new meaning to fucking your brains out. Uh ooooh! Yeah, daddy! Dame la Leche! Give it to me! Harder! Der Tupfer reicht bis zu Ihrem Gehirn und gibt dem Ausficken Ihres Gehirns eine neue Bedeutung. Uh ooooh! Ja, Papa! Dame la Leche! Gib es mir! Schwerer!

  • The Dr doesn’t have any protection, she’s just wearing gloves ����‍♀️She is supposed to wear mask, a protection for her eyes and a proper uniform. ������������ THIS IS RIDICULOUS
