National Flu Outbreak

A nationwide flu outbreak is sweeping across the United States. Forty-seven states have reported cases of the flu, and at least 18 people have died.

Boston is the center of one of the most severely affected regions. City officials announced a public health emergency there on January 9.

So far, Boston has reported over 700 cases this flu season, 10 times more than last season. The outbreak is so serious that the city’s mayor has offered free vaccinations to city residents. Hospitals have simplified vaccine procedures to encourage more people to get one. The city’s public health department has also opened several free-vaccination sites.

The Bible foretells a deadly increase in sickness and disease in the near future. For more information, read Chapter Four of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
