Health researchers hate puppies and presumably sunshine

ABC News are running a story about health researchers who want to blame poor innocent puppies for old people getting sick. I assume these health researchers are actually Skeletor, the Joker, and Shredder in disguise.

A paper to be presented to a Communicable Diseases Conference in Canberra starting today looks at two gastro outbreaks at an ACT aged care facility in April and June last year.

An apparently healthy four-month-old pet puppy was identified as the potential source of infection for up to 15 people.

The name of the nursing home and whether anyone died from the gastro outbreaks is not known.

Ok fine. Gastro is bad, but puppies!

I think the joy the puppy would have bought to the inmates sorry residents out weighs any other risks.

And that’s why you’re not a doctor.

My wife’s mum spent her final years in a nursing home, and the poor pitiful demented old people I saw there always brought tears to my eyes.

If I was in such reduced circumstances, I reckon that death by puppy wouldn’t be such a bad thing at all.

Off topic. While johnboy has some incredibly gold headlines and witty tags in his stories, barcham seems to be smashing it out of the park when it comes to wit.

Keep me lolling, son.

And why are details about this outbreak kept secret? More evidence of the ongoing culture of information-withholding from ACT Health.
