Giant Microbes Original Flu Orthomyxovirus


Now here is one that most of us have had around at some point in our lives. This is the Giant Microbes Original Flu Orthomyxovirus. Before you ask, they do not make a 'man flu' version of this because that would be really really bad and any guy who has had man flu knows what I am talking about. But for now, this is the normal cute and cuddly flu virus version.



He doesn't look like much does he? But this little cretin packs a punch and once he is inside you then you are in for a really bad ride.


This can make you really poorly, sometimes for up to a month or six months if you are a guy!!


But, did you know that 5 to 40% of the population catch flu at sometime in their lives. Fortunately most of us get over it but don't let that cute little cuddly face fool you. This can be a killer, especially in the elderly and the young.


This would be a great used as a learning tool or to promote flu awareness.
