Can anyone explain what this study is actually saying? A lot of it seems to fly in the face of how people generally think diseases like flu are spread.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2279112/

>studies done during Spanish Flu where sick people coughed directly in the faces of healthy volunteers, none of them contracted flu
>supposedly there's no real evidence that sick individuals with flu spread the disease to others
>Cold and flu infection rates are closely related to Vitamin D levels in the population

What does it all mean?

What do you think of the idea of mental asylums? Are they wholly outdated or can modern ones be sustained?

Here's a couple news stories about a local one. It was an inspiration for HP Lovecraft and later in Batman comics and films. They also filmed the indie movie Session 9 there.

One is about the hospital before it closed in 1992.

One is about former patients campaigning to restore the cemetery on the grounds.

I checked these out after seeing a video about another state hospital. It was one for children which had a number of abuse scandals.

There is also an infamous film about life in yet another local state hospital called Titcut Follies, named after a talent show at the hospital.
