    Maybe this explains why some of became ill during/after a severe 'flu'. There would have been a lot of B-cell mutation going on then which would have increased the chance of a mistake.

    No, that is a misinterpretation. Bcells undergo the same evolutionary process whether its the common cold or a bad flu. They don't mutate more because of a flu. It isn't "harder" for them to develop antibodies to flu than other pathogens.
