Swine Flu / H1N1 is an email virus

To paraphrase a friend, ‘swine flu is definitely an email virus’.

As someone who is getting a lot (and certainly not all) of the internal emails about ED planning, preparation, CDC recommendations, State Health Department memos, it certainly seems like it.

We’ve certainly had more meetings about swine flu than cases of it. Let’s hope it stays that way.

    And you don’t even have the phone calls listed in there.

    One of my family member works for the local EMS department, she commented today “If you don’t have the swine flu before you go to the ED, just spend a couple of hours at the local county hospital and you will leave with it or something worse.”

  2. I have had a few flu patients, but even though my travels seemed pointless, I did not feel as if I had been cursed by Circe.

  3. I agree with the hope that it does not increase significantly in cases. We are following the normal recommendations for staying healthy. Worry and stressing will actually just run the immune system down anyway!

    The good news is that we were all worried about so-called bird flu which was a much more dangerous virus, but still a worrying time.
