I decided to make a blog about the flesh-eating virus when I read in the news that Michael Jackson was stricken by it. Michael being Michael I went, “Huh! There goes the has-been King of Pop making up a disease for himself. A flesh-eating virus? Really? He must think he’s living in a science horror movie?”
But then I discovered that, indeed, there is such a thing as a flesh-eating virus and that Michael did not make it up. In fact, according to a story I read somewhere this virus kills more Americans than the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). So why are we not hearing more about this flesh-eating thingie? I don’t know. But my ignorance of thsi disease prompted me to go, “What the heck, why don’t I try to understand this thing by blogging about it.”
So that, my friends is the reason for this blog. I hope to gather as much news and information on this virus and put them up here.
UPDATE: Oops, turns out that there’s no such thing as a flesh-eating virus. But there is a flesh-eating bacteria. Read more about it here.
