The Year of the Flu
Will 2013 go down as the year of the flu? People across all of West Michigan as well as the USA are HIT by the flu this year. Personally, I enjoyed the flu and cold with a good probability of walking pneumonia for the last couple of weeks, but I am told that this particular strain of sickness has a hang time of about a month in some cases. Lucky me.
If you are feeling ill, in my opinion anyway, you need to be the front line of protecting those around you from catching this awful virus going around. WASH YOUR HANDS first and foremost. STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK. Some would argue that they can’t miss a day of work, but if you look around your work, the amount of shared space and shared equipment, like copy machines, telephones and door handles…well they all become Petri dishes and can hold onto a virus for a long time. So much so, a cold virus survived on the moon between the Apollo missions.
Take your vitamins, wash your mitts, and stay home if you are a harbinger of this awful sickness STAY THE HELL HOME, and of course listen to WFGR.
