I can't think of a better place to catch a contagious disease than in a
hospital waiting room: http://youtu.be/-PMZAM9X7oE
Just shows how fast something very nasty can spread
anywhere you have a high population density. Even worse,
Chinese pig farmers have abused all the good anti-viral
drugs to the point where many horrible bugs are immune
to them all. We may all see now how quickly air travel
can spread diseases ....
The sci-fi flix always presume there will be one super-bug
that will kill most of humanity. I think it will be different. It
will be waves of lesser bugs from China and India and
Africa and S. America - they will chip away at us a little at
a time. Vaccines are still too slow to develop, nature is
much quicker at producing the next mutant strain.
