Stomach Flu Everywhere?

The overlapping reports of stomach flu at work, at home, and on LJ make me wonder whether there's something wrong with the food supply. Or the water.

The last time I remember quite so many cases all at once, I was living in Milwaukee during the Cryptosporidium outbreak that killed 150 and sickened 400,000 people. I counted 10 reports in the last 48 hours, which is ridiculous.

Is everybody sick? Or is the Internet an echo chamber?

I was a wreck on Monday, still shaky Tuesday. Figured it was "just" food poisoning until I heard six or eight complaints about illness today.

Today I'm fine.

We were a bit about this today, as half of GR is sick even though we don't share an office (and in some cases are separated by thousands of miles).

Yeah, when cloudscudding mentioned it, I assumed that it had to be in the food supply rather than in the water. I think she lives in Minneapolis.

Or maybe it's just a new bug travelling by jet.

Yup, Minneapolis. However, nobody else here seems to have it. Except, I presume, for the unnamed bastard who gave it to me.

Nearly 1/3rd of my office was out sick today. I haven't heard what's afflicting people (cold or flu). All i know is i'm going to New York in 2 weeks and i DON'T WANT whatever it is that's going around.

So many of my students have been missing class lately, and so many of my local friends are sick, that I think this is a glimpse into our future. Sigh.

I'm healthy, everyone at work is healthy, everyone I have any sort of contact with in person is healthy.
