If viruses were people they would be sociopaths.
Polio Viruses are Vengeful - Mom got polio at 13, and died from post-polio syndrome at 71. Will Covid do the same —will the after-effects kill the survivors sixty years on? Poliomyelitis will wait to get its revenge, Covid may as well.
Cold Viruses Wear Disguises - Sure. You think you’ve got a cold. You go to work or to visit your grandparents and then boom, Grandma’s dead, or a co-worker’s baby. You didn’t have a cold, you had RSV masquerading as a cold, waiting for you to carry it to someone too old or too young or too sick to survive it.
The Virus is Calling From Inside the House - In the Sixties they discovered a virus in the brain of a man, John Cunningham. He died from a brain disease caused by that virus. They then named the virus JCV, for John Cunningham Virus. I imagine in the afterlife JC must have been pleased to have his own special virus, until they found it in someone else. And someone else. And in the water supply, and in ninety percent of human beings. Almost all people have this virus that can kill you if it gets in your brain. Luckily, most of you have a sturdy blood-brain barrier that will not allow John Cunningham entry. One nice thing about the new drug I’m taking, it seems to be the first drug with no deaths from the brain problem that killed John Cunningham: PML. I can’t think how they dodged that bullet. It’s very encouraging, though.
