Biblical Fever = Influenza?

Tara Smith is all over this:
Seriously. I'm not even sure what to do with this. From the wording of the abstract, it very much appears that the authors are Christians--so are they saying that Jesus could not have miraculously cured a bacterial infection, but he could have done so for flu? Or that the flu, on its own, resolved the instant Jesus stood over/touched the ill woman, without any divine intervention? 

As the late Stanley Jaki often wrote, concordism does not good science make.
