The Common Cold

Usually not so common with me. But this time I have been under the ice since the weekend. Actually it started Friday but I managed to get through the weekend pretty okay.

And today I tried getting back to work. Got up, showered, did all the morning things, went out the door and then I realised I was not going to be able to do much with this day either so back in bed now. until Sunday night when I was feeling really feverish.

Thanks for modern tech so you can stay up to date with what is happening anyway, both at work and at home.

The common cold is often caused by one or more rhinovirus infecting the upper respiratory tract. Sometimes the symptoms are similar but not as severe as that of common influenzas.

Virus replication starts from 2 to 6 hours after contact and symptoms generally occur between 2 to 5 days after infection. However in some cases symtoms may even start the same day. Rhinovirus are most infectious the first three days after symptoms have started when people generally should avoid contact as much as possible to avoid spreading the cold.

Enter the stockholm underground. A superior way of making contact with rhinoviruses this time of year.

I’m back to bed now.
