As surprising as that may sound, the flu is actually extremely scary. The reason is, there’s no cure. When you hear the words, “No cure,” you probably think of cancer, HIV, or even Alzheimer. However, the flu also has no cure.
The reason is, each strand of flu is different, and there so many strands, so finding a cure for just one strand would be a waste of time. Instead, medicine like Tami-flu focuses on suppressing symptoms and fever. However, the flu is still one of the most dangerous diseases in the world. World Atlas list the Spanish Flu Epidemic as the fourth worst epidemic in history, beat only by HIV, the Justinian Plague, and the Black Plague.
