Starred and Flagged.
At work I have to share a bathroom with (last count of female employee list on our floor) 110 other women.
Of those women, when I am in a stall and listen, about half, 50% don't wash their hands after using the facilities.
Most of the people I work with are college educated.
As I am sitting in my low cube it is common for people to walk around, coughing and sneezing with no tissue or covering their mouth and nose.
The office I work in has many many people crunched in together.
When one coughs or sneezes, their germs can travel up to 30 feet.
The man who sits two cubes away from me had a son that just got back last week from Mexico City (the 11 year old was there for two weeks).
The orange you pick up at the store could have been handled by ?.
Here in America you will read "I won't wear a mask", well it's exactly this attitude that may kill us yanks. This macho, cowboy, I'm too sexy
for a mask attitude and we possibly may spread this thing to each other and wake up one morning to have many of us "not here".
Very scary times.
Wonder how this thing really got started?
Wonder if it was a "accident" or "natural" occurrence?
I don't trust the news media, their a bunch of fancy teleprompt readers.
Many of us may cease existence and never know the real story.
Strange I hear it targets younger people and so far not the real old. There was a 23 month old baby that has died. My heart goes out to the parents.
Yes, these are scary times.
I hope and pray your numbers are incorrect but your souce is reliable.
I know a little Mexican, (the cleaning lady doesn't suspect because I am a Gringo) and she had mentioned to one of the other hispanic ladies while I
was washing my hands that her mother in Mexico says she knows several people that have died from this flu, there's more deaths from this than whats
being reported on the news and the border patrol is being increased. (That's all I caught).
Anyone out there that knows or hears of anything else, please post as our news source is only going to tell us what "they" want us to know and want
to keep "work productivity" up and not create a "panic".
If this thing is only targeting a certain age group, it could be a "natural viral mutation" as the older group may already have immunities to it.
If it is a natural occurrence than that is better than the alternative ie: artificially gene spliced created.
