Influenza - "new" guidelines for sporters...

The Netherlands are suffering an outbreak of flu. With 131 out of 100.000 people infected it's an epidemic according to the statistics (Dutch doctors speak of an epidemic when more than 51 people out of 100.00o in two weeks are diagnosed to have the flu). With a number of 1 out of 4 the Heupink-family contributes considerably to the statistics. The poor patient himself doesn't bother about stats, he just feels miserable and is going to miss a school-day tomorrow...

The "Association for sports-medicine" has recently updated his advice and presents a new list of 10 do's en don'ts for active sporters in case of a flu . Briefly said: fever? don't sport! But I suppose you won't feel like sporting anyway when you catch a serious flu?!

Tip: the website of Sportzorg (Dutch - the Association for sports-medicine) offers very useful and accessible information on health-issues for sporters.
