People freak out about the strangest things. This is essentially a cold virus. There are other viruses out there that have just as bad or worse death statistics but no one seems to worry about it. How many people are up all night vomiting and then just head in to work the next morning, or send their kid to school after spending the day vomiting. Stomach bugs cause a lot of deaths each year too. And they are so highly contagious and can remain contagious for up to two weeks after symptoms have stopped. I find it funny that a daycare will not allow a child to come back after having hand foot and mouth for a week because of the contagious period but they won’t say to stay away for the entire contagious period of a stomach bug. Having had both go through my kids I can say I’d much rather they get hand foot and mouth than a stomach bug that’s for sure. People just have to put this in perspective. Everyone is just freaking out right now because it’s a new strain of something that will likely end up being no different than all the other flus, colds, gastro bugs that kill thousands each year. If you are really that worried, be sanitary, stay home if contagious with something, just use common sense.
