The lesson in life, never speak too soon...sigh.
I was so looking forward to my girlfriend visiting and staying with me this coming weekend. I was just cheekily telling her last night that at least the swine flu victims isnt near us. Then WHAM BANG, my friend told me that someone in my complex is infected!!! I hurriedly went to read the website and indeed, the 2 new victims back from New York on 23may are living smacked right in my complex. At least they aint in my block.
While its not exactly as malicious and potent as SARS, still, it's still rather worrying since its contagious. There's nothing much we can do except to ride out the "scare".
I was just wondering today, why was the already diligent cleaning stuff suddenly even disinfecting more regularly, and all the guards have a mask on and the disinfectant gel station placed at the counter. It just didnt occur to me that "danger" has struck nearby.... ?
My friends are joking on facebook that I probably shouldnt return home. Yeah right... just when I was planning a flight back to Singapore too. Guess I should just wait a few more weeks till the coast is clear to be sure I aint infected and carrying the virus further.
