Probably called "fastwalk"--- ( trying for the potty ) --- have you narrowed it down to the general source where you may have gotten it ( mall, store, neighbor, etc. ) ?
You need to have this in case you decide to sue !!!

I think suing the cruiselines for the virus is ridiculous, especially since it has been proven that the virus was spread by person to person contact (in other words the passengers spread it to each other along with bringing the dang virus on board in the first place.)

Check out this link to a transcipt of a teleconference between the CDC and the media - I read it and came away with the impression that the cruiselines are going way above and beyond what they needed to do, and that some of the passengers (and their attitudes) were a good part of the problem.

I think it is beyond ridiculous to sue a cruise line over something like this.
But even more ridiculous are the juries who award people money for these silly lawsuits. When the peole who make up the juries simply say no--a lot of this nonsense will stop, as the attorneys won't be so hot to take a case they probably won't win.
Until then, you, me and everyone who likes to cruise will pay for the lawsuits in the form of higher fares.

Well said, Frito. I'm glad you're feeling better, Salem.

Cheers,
