Black Death Strikes New York City, Columbia
Written by Bwog Staff
Bwog hopes this post finds you able to sit up, sit, talk and/or breathe this lovely Monday afternoon: many of your classmates are not so fortunate. Yes, the much-feared norovirus is making its way around our fair campus these days, leaving Columbians with a strain of what we understand is the nastiest stomach flu known to man.
Bwog has witnessed several mid-day CAVAs outside John Jay of those seemingly unable to battle what is now being referred to as “the plague” without the help of St. Luke’s. The New York Times reports a 19% increase in ER visits for stomach bug-symptoms, some 400 visits per day. We’ve been washing our hands every few seconds and suggest you do the same. Nowhere is safe.
