Hi folks, this is just a wee Thursday entry of some of the slight hysteria already mounting over the impending Flu virus that is about to or has, hit our shores here in the UK.
On my way home last night, I spotted two commuters already with their masks on which was quite unnerving to say the least and maybe it's a sign of things to come within the next few weeks. WHO knows ?
Watching the WHO press conference last night, they have upped the level to 5 to state that the pandemic is imminent!! I'm starting to question my original thoughts that this would not be as serious but the escalating media frenzy and doom laden comments are sparking the doubts but in the end of the day, flu virus's are and have always been highly unpredictable so it's anyones guess how strong this could be. Could this be the virus they have always stated would one day come and wipe out some of the population like the Spanish Flu managed early last century or could this die out as soon as it came ? My optimistic head still, states the latter!! Don't panic kids, just wash your hands and avoid kissing dodgy looking folk like the plague!
It's in times like these though that we should all appreciate what we got in life and if you don't have it...go and get it!! Life is precious
& on that cheery note, I'll be back next week with a brighter and wheezier blog...I hope!!
Peace & love
