This is just great!!!! Soon it will probably mix with some other virus, and then we will really be in panic mode. I just hope it doesn't spread to reptiles, as a pet owner of a dog and a snake i am a bit worried.

WE live in a sea of virus and bactria. They are beings that mutitate and change and will always be around. The only solution is to have a strong immune system that can deal with new life evolving and changing. There are thousands of different virus, you have them in your system all the time. The reason for illness is when one gets out of balance and the immune system goes down. Don't panic. Eat healthy and get plenty of rest, drink lots of water. Keep your mind at peace. They will always be here, they are a part of the earth. As a student of microbiology, I find them so beautiful and so mysterious! The plague, believe it or not, was caused when people went crazy and killed the cats in Europe, believing them evil, (snarl, I hate that) then the mice overran the streets carrying the plague. Once again, life out of balance. Beware the drug companies who will make everyone panic in order to make large sums of money!!! Take care of yourselves, brothers and sisters...the bugs are here and always will be! Yet I find it interesting that this disease is zoonotic!!!
