The next patient has 'flu, Dr Grumble

It had to happen and it has. The notes read H1N1.


What do you think, Dr Grumble, do you think you should see her or is this one for the infectious diseases consultant?"

"Looks very much like an ID problem to me."

Phew. Actually Dr Grumble would have been quite happy to see the patient but the problem looked more appropriate for the ID consultant. Really it did.

Perhaps the 'flu is not as bad as we once feared but it would be nice to have a vaccine. It's on its way. But which will we get first? The vaccine or the virus?
