as I write this, i am sitting in a 2family house currently housing a dozen people, with ice on my forehead cuz i got quite a few bites this evening
while putting things away while the rain started picking up.
so at the moment, mosquito-transmitted diseases following all the flooding, is one my my main concerns per your thread. also, just about every time
i've had to take the subways (when i used to live here year round) i would get colds, flus etc and it seems theres always people sick coughing,
sneezing right on top of you without any manners (i never sit cuz of that). the subway, crowded buses, crowded shopping centers, crowded restaurants,
buffets, congested main streets (manhattan) are places i avoid even before 9/11 and now irene.
i dont know what the densest city in the USA is but in my experience it is NYC. i cant think of an outbreak but its bound to happen and i dont know
whats the next epidemic, maybe some mutant form of measles or swine flu again? or TB, or MRSA, flesh eating disease, theres so many possibilities when
u live like sardines.
