It’s been an ugly year for bird flu.
This year, at least three deaths in the District were reported from the virus.
But a recent study has also found a link between birdsong and flu, and it may have a connection to the coronavirus.
That study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, was conducted by Dr. Christopher J. Wilson of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and Dr. Richard J. Smith of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
They analyzed data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
They found that people who were exposed to bird sounds had an elevated risk of developing flu.
They did this because birdsong can emit high levels of sound, which can be very loud.
In addition, the study found that those who heard birdsong more frequently had a higher risk of contracting influenza.
In other words, bird sounds are really good at getting your body to make antibodies to influenza.
The researchers also looked at the number of people who contracted influenza in Washington from January 1 to April 30, 2017.
The number of flu cases in the city jumped from 3,074 to 5,082.
So, Wilson and Smith looked at data from that time period, looking at people who had had influenza at least once, and then they looked at people’s flu shots, and they found that in Washington, people who heard bird sounds were about five times more likely to contract influenza than those who didn’t.
So if you hear bird sounds more frequently, it can increase your chances of getting flu.
It also makes your immune system more active, and that means you’re more likely than the general population to get the virus in the first place.
The authors say that the link between bird sounds and flu is a possibility.
It’s not yet clear why bird sounds might be a risk factor, and the study does not look at what bird sounds can do to the immune system.
But Wilson and Jones said they hope the study can help inform the public about how to protect themselves from the coronivirus.
“We hope it will inspire more people to become vaccinated, so we can keep an eye on this as the pandemic gets worse,” said Wilson.
But if you’re worried about bird sounds, you can do your part.
“If you have a backyard, go out to get bird whistles, bird baths, bird feeders, bird play places,” said Jones.
“Make sure you don’t have any birds in there.
They might be putting you at risk of influenza.”
So far, the flu vaccine has not been made available to the public.
But it’s important to get vaccinated, because if you do get influenza, you need to take your meds, Wilson said.
You need to get your flu shots.
You should also know what to do if you have questions about your flu shot, Wilson added.
And for those who are scared, there are other ways to help protect yourself.
