    Well, I’m contagious now.

    The BBC drama about a flu/sepsis pandemic earlier in the year still lingers with me...

    The scientific researchers are trying to see how a flu virus would spread through the country and maybe come up with ideas on how to stop the spread


    There’s an app for Android & iPhone.

    ...and if you live in Haselmere, they are doing a 72 hour study.
    I signed up yesterday and am now happily infecting people (except I haven't gone outside since activating the app)

    The results are in: (you've got a couple of weeks left to watch this)
    https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episod...uggid=p059y0p1

    They managed to get a lot of people signed up, the results are in, but they are still gathering data, so anyone who wants to take part in a 24 hour study, please do. They are particularly interested in the over 60s and under 25s.
    I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

    And that BBC radio drama hasn't left me.
