Have you ever felt sick after a night of clubbing or even a weekend stroll in the Malls?
I have been grounded for the past two days for a flu like symptoms that saw temperatures rising to 39 celsius, body aching and nasal cavities burning with flowing phlegm, lava like. It was no ordinary strain of influenza. Is this the flu mentioned by Pastuer lab in its SMS encouraging people to take flu immunization jabs?
This was the second occassions in a month I am being grounded after nights of clubbing. This could be a gentle reminder for me to be more conscious of the air quality in places that I go. Then you may ask, which club has a good air quality index, one that has good ventillation with sufficient air changes per hour? None except where smoking is prohibited or one that has an open air section. Does it mean that I have to stop visiting the watering holes where good music is served, making and meeting friends is the standing order.
Today we hear the news of the demise of Loga of Alleycats who succumbed to lung cancer. Could it be due to his continuous exposure to a cocktail of smokes almost everynight of his singing career?
For the nonclubbers you are also at risk if you are a mall rat. Have you heard of legionnnaires deseases, one that is spread from poor airconditioning? A staff was diagnossed having mumps a desease I thought were the norm in the 60s . That is the price we pay for subsidising the imports of immigrant labour. Can you imagine the kind of people that share the air that you breathe in that favourite mall of yours?
