Since I've lived in the backwoods of TN I have had almost no colds or flu. We seldom go into large urban areas and trade mostly with the small population of a nearby town. Last weekend we went to Grand Rapids, MI(2nd largest city in Michigan) to watch our daughter's college graduation. There were over 12,000 people in that arena and many were coughing and hacking. Well, guess what? Now I'm got a head cold that is rapidly turning into bronchitis.
My point is.....if this SARS thing takes off, staying away from urban areas and places where large groups of people gather will help greatly.
