Despite all the massive news coverage from just a few short months ago, you don’t hear or read about the H1N1 flu virus anymore. While the virus was certainly deadly and was spread worldwide, it appears that the common flu still had a much more devastating effect on people. New pandemic or not, the common flu regularly kills thousands of people a year, all over the world.
During the holidays, I found out that I was exposed to the H1N1 virus. A friend of mine had been carrying the virus for weeks and was sick. I had dinner with him a few times. He even came over to my apartment to trade quiche recipes. He only found out later that he had the virus.
Despite being exposed to the now-famous virus, I never did get sick. I wonder if I actually carried the virus but didn’t get any symptoms. Hmmm… all this virus talk makes me want to ensure my zombie preparedness kit is in good order.
