Aah, excellent. So those of us with a depressed immune system won't die of that. We will, however, just get everything else. *grin*

Hope you feel better soon honey, it's no fun this thing!

Interesting that they're also concerned about viruses spreading via face masks, because people will touch the virus on the mask when they take it off. Seems it would be sensible for anyone who does use a mask to make a point of washing their hands immediately after taking it off.

Interesting. Wasn't there a finding last year that the 1918 Spanish 'flu virus seemed to do most of its damage by immune overactivation also?
