Birds flu and Rumors

Tuesday, February 21, 2006
I really wonder what’s going on around?! What’s that state of panic spreading among people?!

First they say there are humans infected, then was that rumor of ‘don’t drink water’ that spread in no time.

People, calm down. What is it that we are afraid of?! Getting infected?! So what?! You will not change the way you are gonna die. If you are to die with a bird flu, you will, whatever precautions you take.

I’m not saying we don’t take necessary precautions, do. But not in that way. Think before you say anything.

I guess we should do something more useful than making up rumors!!!

I totally agree with you, but it's human nature, we all know we are gonnna die someday and yet no one wants to. I remeber this water rumor, I myself went crazy calling everyone and sending emails.
It's still new to us and the awareness level is almost zero.
You know the strange thing about that water rumor that almost everybody believed it without even giving it a little thinking!!

The strangest thing was, I got that sms from my father! That was completely strange. He never believes such rumors nor forward it. But getting it from him made me thing, then it's for real!!

Al Ahram newspaper published a picture of few infected birds floating over the Nile water surface 9 days ago.. So I am wondering what if there was not any so-called water-rumor, would any accountable minister, either Medical, Agriculture or whatsoever, annouced that there are a regularly water samples checking every 3 or 4 hours, i.e. would any of them take the first step without such a rumor, I doubt.

-The prvious Minister of Medicine "Mohamed Awad Tag Al Dien" has been asked so many times, What are the precautions that YOU, the ministery, has taken. "Egypt is not infected" he replied.

-In breif my point is, It is your job, so pls do it.

P.S. Nice music for a nice song
