I’m Doooomed!

Recent news stories are listing Maidenhead and Slough as new “hot spots” for Swine Flu breakouts. These are the two stops my train makes on the main line on my morning commute everyday. They are both major “ports of call” with massive shuffling of people on and off the train. And on the way home, depending on the train I’m on, can involve many school aged children.

Hrm. I’ve developed a sudden really sore throat, but no other symptoms. But being pregnant, I am in the high risk category for flu. This would mean that I would have priority access to antivirals (I’m not sure there are any even approved for pregnant women) or a vaccine when one becomes available.

So, when do I start looking really insane and wearing a mask in the morning?
