When I hear about things like this, I wonder how long such a virus goes on in an area before it is recognized?
I caught something a few weeks ago, I figured it was a bad cold. But it just will not go away, and has degenerated into some pretty bad breathing and
coughing problems. I ended up in the ER the night before last, because my coworkers were so concerned they made me go there.
The doctor I saw thought I was having a severe allergic reaction to something, but all the nurses that saw me when I came in were commenting that
there is a really bad flu going around that is having long lasting severe coughing and breathing problems.
My husband has started to have the exact same symptoms in the last few days, so I believe it is contagious.
To top this off, I work in that hospital, and am very aware that despite our huge efforts to protect ourselves and our working environment, still,
viruses are a very real threat to us there.
