I know it’s not just me who’s been suffering from this evil, evil double affliction. In my case, first I got the cough, which just goes on and on. Then there’s the cold, which is just a normal cold, but when added to The Cough, it becomes an evil self-reinforcing pain.
The Cold produces all that gunk which helps The Cough to breed even better. And your immune system is so blitzed trying to fight on two fronts (bacterial cough, virus cold) that it can’t defeat either.
I know loads of people around here who’ve had it, and I hear it’s big in cities too. The only solution: get antibiotics for The Cough.
Still, the chicken flu unsettles me. Every week or so at The Indie the science/health team would say “Oh, there’s another one” as something would drop on the wires about another case of bird flu-related illness in the Far East. Lots of scientists feel a pandemic is just waiting to happen.
And when it does, *then* you’ll discover how unpopular airlines can be.
