"They came in after the last flu epidemic, the one from pigs. It made sense at the time of the flu epidemic, the quicker people were diagnosed, the faster they could be treated."
In 2007 I was still messing around on and off with this story and rewrote it a different way. But it still has the line:
"They were set up to catch anyone who might be suffering from the last pig to human influenza epidemic ..."
So here I am trying to break away from my factual writing - which earns me money - and try writing fiction and it seems my fiction is becoming factual. *Sigh*
