Amateur Epidemiology

November 15th, 2010 by the_lifer

Maybe you started to have a sore throat on the plane. Or perhaps your adorable tot started coughing after kindy, otherwise known to the parents as “the petri dish.” Most likely, it’s because that co-worker came in even when they weren’t well and didn’t go home soon enough. You’ve caught a bug.

The Dreaded Lurgy, The Martian Death Flu, “I got it from Agnes…”, or just “that cold.” Every urban area is afflicted with bugs that go around. What’s interesting in Wellington is that you can track them against The Starfish geography of the region. How long has it taken That Cold to get from Island Bay on the west coast to the far reaches of Upper Hutt?

The current average is 1.5 days.
