Talking Tuesday: The Influenza Kids

About 11 minutes in which I tell you about a group of kids from Africa and SE Asia came to the area and managed to bring the flu with them. Leave it to me to run into the building where they were while not wearing any personal protective equipment. As it turns out, I had all the protection I needed for that time… But I won’t do that again.

What happens when a group of kids with the flu comes to the United States? You’d think that there was this big, huge response with lots of doctors and nurses. Nope. There was only one outbreak, so they only needed one epidemiologist: Me.

Sit back and enjoy this mini-podcast and why I’ll never run without personal protective equipment into a building full of sick people again.
