Key Takeaways From the Podcast

  • The flu season comes in waves. This is also called “bumps”. We just got over a bump recently and we’re about to go into another bump. 
  • If you get the flu, you need to use the appropriate medicine within 24 hours – at the most 48 hours. Tamiflu is usually what’s recommended but there are other options as well. It is best to talk to a medical professional first before choosing medicine so that you will get the best option.
  • It is suspected that the coronavirus will come back again but we do not know how soon – perhaps in another 10 to 20 years?
