A few weeks ago a lady at work came back from Indonesia with some kind of bug. My wife and I both ended up getting it. I've never had a flu hit me like this before. It lasted for two weeks, the first few days I literally thought I was going to have to go to the ER. I wonder if that was one of these bird flus?

Hey, DS. Thanks for stopping by TNH. As noted over at Daily Kos, bugs, flus and other viral illnesses are easily spread these days by airport travel.

It's still (the tail end of) flu season in some parts of the country (some outliers and straggler infections), so not all flus come from the airport, though.

The New England Journal of Medicine covers our lack of preparation; the Effect Measure write-up is here.
