A Swine Flu horror story
Let me start by saying that my cousin is studying in De La Salle University and she attended classes last May 27th to June something, ...just before classes were suspended due to the swine flu. I was always teasing her and my other friends from DLSU that they shouldn't come near me at any time cause if they sneeze, i'd give 'em the beating of their lives.
Friday afternoon, she texted me:
guys, kinonfirm ng kakilala qng clasm8 ntn
sa market1 n ung 1st confirmed case ng influenza
a s la salle ay galing dun sa foreigner clasm8 ntn.
Wow. But then, of course i didnt mind this. She was teasing me even the day before that they had a Japanese classmate that hasn't been coming to school for 2 days. Still, I went to my cousin's home because they invited me to eat there. I gave them a value meal Mcdo treat kasi sweldo (yey!) , and suddenly someone the phone rang. My cousin's voice turned formal. After that call, she told me that this was from the D.O.H. She was asked to get some medicine from San Lazaro and that she would have to self -quarantine herself for 10 days.
(twilight zone soundtrack)
Even if she kept telling me that she's strong and doesn't feel any symptoms, im still so extremely terrified with the idea of getting THE flu. From what i heard, traditional flu shots don't work.
And today, she went to church with us. Churches are a public place so good luck churchmates!
