well looking at all the views this thread gets, its obvious that there are many people that are making a habit of keeping in touch with the news here, and that is a good thing.
This news is about one of the most serious threats to the very existance of most of the people on this planet, more than half of the worlds population...and when we read this thread regularly we could easily forget that as the main reason that we first began to be interested in this news service.
Recently though, it does seem that there are fewer people who would wish to add their contributions here, and to a point that does have some influence on the efforts that are made here.
It is a privaledge to be in a position to deliver important news to the world, naturally that speaks for itself, but lately it does seem that readers are becomming more passive and from that point of view, it does seem to be a little sad.
This thread has always welcomed input and always will do so.
So to that end, please let it be known that anybodies and everybodies postings are absolutely welcomed, we can all contribute something of worth, no matter how important that little snippet of news might seem at the time.
Absolutely everyone is wanted and needed to add their contribution to make this thread as relevant as it can be.
Especially right now, as we move into the Northern Hemisphere flu season, which in all probability will be more than this OP might be capable of keeping track of, and a season which is already stacking up as one that may well be remembered for many years into the future.
All I can say here is that this thread needs lots of help from now on, things do seem to be changing and not necessarily for the better.
Its seems to be a time where careful vigilance and observation will be the order of the day if we are all to get through this next flu season without too much threat of harm, so information now will be everything, please help now, when your input will help the most.
I personally thank everyone that participates with this endevour and cannot stress the importance of each and every tiny piece of information that will in some way add to our collective knowledge base, so dont be shy.
If your post is relevant it is welcomed...simple as that, and who knows, you might help to save a life or two with your seemingly small piece of information.
And what a wonderful feeling that could be for any caring person.
