I just saw on Yahoo! that the WHO (World Health Organization) has just announced that the A(H1N1) Virus Outbreak is now on Alert Level 6. This means that the world is experiencing a pandemic.. the first in 41 years.
This is big. This is scary.
Although experts say that there is a cure, and that the virus is not deadly (as long as you're treated early), I can't help but imagine things that could happen with such kinds of incidents plaguing the world that I am living in. And I can't imagine myself being caught in this kind of events wherein I, together with those people I care for, are vulnerable in getting this virus.
I had my doctor friends on speed dial already so I could easily call them when the need arises. And on Sunday, I went to the nearest drug store to by myself and my family, vitamins and surgical masks to protect ourselves from what's happening.
Shit! I don't want to be infected.. nor be quarantined. Arrrggg!!!
This is shit!
I think, Mother Nature is really fighting back now.
