Help needed about "Influenza"

  • carolinelyden by carolinelyden

    hello, I have just joined and tagged a few pages now, think I am doing ok, however I recently had a dairy that said" 4 sent to hospital influenza" how does anyone tag this please. Surely its tagged as a Casualty...sick, but should i hashtag influenza. Any help appreciated... please keep it basic enough for me to grasp!!

    Hello Caroline

    Have you seen the Definitive Hashtag List: http://talk.operationwardiary.org/#/boards/BWD000000j/discussions/DWD0000d05 ?

    It includes a tag for medical which says: #medical - use with standard tag 'medical' in 'army life' to record interesting details or observations of hygiene/health. Where specific illnesses are mentioned, it would also be useful to hashtag them, e.g. #medical hygiene very poor, leading to outbreak of #diptheria

    So I would say tag it as #medical #influenza
