Re: MERS corona virus infection

Very insightful. Thank you very much.

I'll add this to the "Do Not Get" list I carry around with me. I'd previously put it in the "sounds fun, must give it a go" list. Close call!

Re: MERS corona virus infection

If I get it...should I keep it? Or pass it on?

You will be fine. Just don't get bitten by a cactus and keep away from snake poo. (both suggested as being how this virus is transmitted.) The rumoured treatment of having ones tongue slit and therefore becoming "soggy sick" sounds intriguing.

Thanks for that. Luckily, they seem to be easy to out-run, even for me.

Re: MERS corona virus infection

After a drink or two, I may forget to out-run the cactus.

Therefore I have inspected my cactus from a safe distance. Even when prodded with a stick it has no teeth. I will take it to the dentist tomorrow for an x-ray, and extraction of teeth (if found) to be on the safe side.

Can anyone recommend a dentist in the Baden area qualified for such work?
