'It is a cesspool of funky flu'

Katherine Smith Lockler posted her frustrated flu-rant to Facebook after coming off a 12-hour shift at the hospital

Katherine Smith Lockler posted her frustrated flu-rant to Facebook after coming off a 12-hour shift at the hospital

Lockler went on to say that if you do get sick, "wash your stinkin' hands so you don't get all your babies sick!"

When it comes to preventing the flu from spreading at home, Lockler has a pretty simple solution.

But Katherine insists she didn't mean to undermine anyone's intelligence, she just wanted people to understand how they can take the correct precautions to get themselves disinfected.

Lockler lives in Milton and works in several emergency rooms in Northwest Florida, where the flu is running high in numbers not seen since the 2009-10 flu season. By going to the hospital, they're exposing themselves to the flu. "I'm gonna teach y'all a magic trick, it's unbelievable". "Let me show you again, in slow motion!" she is heard saying, before repeating the move. "Because guess what?" Lockler said.

Then Lockler dramatically fakes a sneeze into her arm.

A mother of four, Lockler conceded that her tone in the video fell off somewhat like a mother conversing with her young children, yet she didn't intend to undermine anybody's insight in the video.

It highlights that OPEC on the aggregate reduced imports by a total of ~180 million barrels (meeelion barrels) a year ago . OPEC is reducing output by about 1.2 million bpd as part of a deal with Russian Federation and other non-OPEC producers.

Some portion of what's influenced the nearly seven-minute-to long video so polarizing was the snide enunciation and energized outward appearances and signals Lockler utilized now and again to express what is on her mind.

"There is a cesspool of funky flu at the E.R. right now", she said, requesting people to not come to the emergency room if they necessarily don't need to, especially to visit others. "My hands didn't because it's wonderful to watch how many people come through the emergency room, sneeze in their hand and I watch".

After a 12-hour night shift, nurse Katherine Lockler of Milton, Florida, was so frustrated with the ways some people have handled the flu outbreak that she recorded a Facebook video on Saturday from her auto titled "After Work Thoughts", in which she highlighted the increasing risk of catching the flu and also shared some useful advice to avoid getting yourself, and other people sick. She went on to apologize to anyone offended by her tone, but insists that regardless of how she may have come off the message is still "right on the money".

The video has racked up more than 2.7 million views on Facebook.

This year's flu season is a particularly bad one, and perhaps you are dismayed to hear that some people have gotten the flu vaccine and still came down with the flu. The illness is widespread in 48 states and has killed more than 50 children.

"Not taking advice (which I already know) from someone that is talking to the general public like we are all 5 years old", someone commented on her Facebook thread, leading to its own retort from another viewer: "The general public acts like they're 5. We're putting ourselves in the thick of some nasty germs to help".
