The day is over and you are driving home. You tune in to your radio.
You hear a little blurb about a little village in India where some villagers have died suddenly and strangely of a flu that has never been seen before. It's not influenza, but three or four fellows are dead and it's kind of interesting. They're sending some doctors over there to investigate it. You didn't think much about it. However on Sunday, you hear another radio spot on your way home from church. This time, they say it's not three villagers but its thirty thousand villagers that died of the flu in the back hills of this particular area in India. The news is also on television that night. CNN runs a little blurb on it; people are heading there from the disease center in Atlanta because this disease strain has never been seen before.

It has gone to Europe. Panic strikes. As best as they can tell, once you get it, you have it for a week without knowing it. Then you have four days of unbelievable symptoms before you die.
