    I could not agree with you more – since 2 days I must have gotten 20 sms’s for the congo fever.

    Congo fever starts 2-21 days after infection – so a child having been admitted to a hospital the very same day seems already far fetched ;) food poisoning yeah not not Congo, Any sneeze, Any cough, Any fever is assumed as congo… Please cool down

    Please handle this outbreak responsibly and not take part in rumors (or sms chains)- as rumors tend to do more damage then the disease itself

    I think this rumor is a GOOD RUMOR. Spicy food might not carry the virus in the spotlight but causes other long term health problems.

    Be starved of good rolls long enough like me here in Lahore, and you wouldn’t care WHAT you might catch from those rolls, you’d eat ’em anyway :)
