«В карантине» [In Quarantine] Posted by josefina on Nov 13, 2009 in News
«Вот и началось…» [And so it has begun…] Yesterday I woke up with a cough and a terrible head ache, went to the doctor at the university who convinced me that «у меня нет свиного гриппа» [I don’t have the swine flu] and sent me to the pharmacy to retrieve necessary medicine. And yesterday I did believe her, because I kept getting better steadily during the day. Then today I wake up some time after lunch and realized that I have much higher fever than yesterday and greater pain in my entire body. After consulting with my mother in Sweden over the phone, it was settled finally that «у меня есть грипп A/H1N1» [I have the A/H1N1 flu]. «Вот и прекрасно!» [ironic: Well isn’t that wonderful!] Today, while rolling around in my bed, I found out per sms from a friend that «университет закрыт на неделю до 20 (двадцатого) ноября» [the university is closed for a week until the 20th of November]. Now I have read up on how things are locally in the town where I live, «Екатеринбург» [Yekaterinburg], and as it turns out I am far from alone. The past three days 12,500 people have become sick here, and 70% of them are very likely to have the A/H1N1 flu, as you can read more about in this article here: «С 13 (тринадцатого) ноября в Екатеринбурге вводится карантин» [“Beginning on the 13th of November Yekaterinburg will be in quarantine”]. At least I won’t be missing out on any classes due to my sickness… And I’ve never been in quarantine before. Could be interesting. If I weren’t this sick, that is… The only reason as to why I’m writing this is to forewarn all of you readers that you might not hear from me in a while! I’ll be back once I’m feeling better, could be a few days, could be a week. I don’t know. I’m off to bed now, or else I might just pass out in front of the computer. «Нехорошо!» [Not good!]
