20 year old Chicago resident/student Michael Hairsine has survived the flu, and had the following to say about the ordeal:
“I could hardly move. It was a chore to get out of bed. I felt absolutely terrible,” Hairsine said from his parents’ home. “I feel like it still is the flu, but it’s not so terrible that people should be freaking out the way they are.”
It doesn’t sound like an afternoon at the park, but this certainly isn’t going to help strike fear in people’s hearts.
