I’m usually not one of these people who sees doctors/drug companies/whatever as evil entities out to slowly and sometimes painfully kill us all after depriving us of all our hard-earned money. But sometimes, even I get a little confused. Particularly when, not even 48 hours after they officially declare an end to the H1N1 crisis that wasn’t, they’ve latched onto a new one. this one, which they’re just calling a superbug, already has global medical disaster written all over it, according to scientists in the UK among other places. Supposedly, it’s already shown up in Canada, the US, the UK, Australia and several other places in between. And, much like another superbug we all know and love, it’s supposedly resistent to most if not all current antibiotics available–I see yet another new vaccine in our future.
Yep, on tuesday they cancelled the H1N1 disaster, and on wednesday we found out why. They now have a new one to splatter all over the newspapers. Just when you thought it was safe to come out of quarentine.
