04 Feb 2003 Improving your Micro-Vision
In the midst of Operation Desert Storm in Iraq, hundreds of American soldiers became violently ill with what was first thought to be a biological warfare agent. It wasn’t. It was the same bug that takes a regular run at hospitals, nursing homes, schools, hotels and cruise ships – anywhere that people gather. It is the same bug that sidelines trains, airplanes and busses for decontamination. It’s a very tiny little microbe, but it leaves a long and disgusting legacy of vomit and diarrhea . . . and it is particularly active this year.
