Plague spreads to Red Hill

johnboy 26 November 2006 9

The Canberra Times informs us that the flu plague fatally afflicting the Jindalee Nursing Home in Narrabundah has spread to the Morling Lodge in Red Hill.

The residents of God’s waiting rooms across the city will be getting extremely nervous now.

Apparently Stateline have exposed some systemic screw-ups in the testing of samples from Jindalee which means they still don’t know what they’re dealing with.

Expected attendance figures at the mayor’s geriatric New Year party are now being revised DOWN.

Run for the Hills!

Milord, It’s coming from the hills.

Run away from the hills! If you see a hill, run in the opposite direction!

I have heard that about tamiflu (and they also think it will be rendered useless against bird flu)

Any dead chickens yet?

Just aside from this issue, I am reliably informed that EMA apparently purchased 8,000 or so body bags the other day.

Turns out for the staff the cure is worse than the disease. The Tamiflu medication they are taking has some pretty nasty side effects.

Hmm – and Katy G is using this illness outbreak as a test of our fair city’s readiness to deal with a bird flu outbreak. Not looking so good so far.
