I believe it, don’t you?
Present day tech resources allowed for a study of TV and flu spread! A joint study just completed by economists and epidemiologists (professionals trained to study and tract diseases) was published in medical journal (BMC Infectious Disease – BioMedicalCentral).
A key factor to decreasing initial spread of A/H1N1 virus (swine flu) was “social distancing behavior’ staying home and includes watching TV.
Times spend at home when ill – rather than going to work or out in public – with flu symptoms made a dramatic difference in spread.
Perhaps this study offers an argument for a Netflix subscription?
