I siad this earlier, and it might bear repeating. When a person who is nauseated throws up around other people, it often triggers others getting
sick. If there is a bug going around, and people are all trying to fight it and keep going, they might possibly not be able to stop the sight of
someone else vomiting from making them follow suit.
Now, I'm not suggesting in all cases that it is a sympathetic reaction. But I think it is one explanation for the sudden 'sickness' of so many in
the open air at a football game.
It has been reported that the symptoms were not long lasting. If any kid had severe symptoms that lasted, then the parents and other people who knew
would NOT just keep quiet. It would make news. So, I think that the likelihood of it being some kind of terrorist attack with biological weapons is
stretching it a lot.
I've seen my old school have 200 kids out at a time, with as many in class sick during an outbreak of one thing or another. It happens. And they
sometimes have to close school to disinfect desks and surfaces. But the normal operating procedure in our school was to stay open unless the staff
all got sick and they couldn't run easily with a large number of substitutes.
This IS the time of year when these bugs pop up in schools. It's a breeding ground for infection because kids are cooped up together and coughing on
Before we jump to the extreme conclusions, it might be good to eliminate the more likely ones first, no?
