*Helden would reach high for his notebook as he carefully read the words one more time, before holding down his radio's PTT button and speak loudly*
"Hello my fellows. Name's Dr. Helden, and I have been working on researching this disease that has spread all around us. Pretty sure everyone listening knows what I'm talking about. Anyway, no small talk, I spent the last days searching for sick people to examine the symptoms and try to diagnose whatever it is they have. Without the proper equipment, all I can surely say it that it's probably some sort of viral infection, nothing to do with the Z Virus itself, that is mostly known to be infectious by drinking out of infected water and infected humans and even animals in one case I found, although I'm not certainly sure about the latter. If worried, burn the meat before eating. Anyway, symptoms include the infamous sneezing and coughing, in some cases, blood, but I think that these cases in specific must have secondary causes since no other patients had such an aggressive pathology."
"Although I first thought it might have been another cholera spread after hearing about the infected water, the observed symptoms and the lack lack of antibiotic effect got me worried for a moment. The the use of codeine and ibuprofen, alongside a few other anti inflammatory and anti allergic medications have proved to be little efficient into helping to restrain the pathology, although in some cases it worked to some extent. I must remember that large quantities of said medications, not just might, but will, kill you. In conclusion, it has proven to be a rather intriguing disease that, I cannot diagnose easily, but would classify as to being close to a cold, or a flu, as many others have said."
"Standard procedure is to stay outside, drawing in fresh air, as being stuck inside a building won't help since the closed ambient will only help you re-infect yourself. Get yourself hydrated most importantly, after that, fed correctly, and after that, stay away from sick people, as they might re-contaminate you. Being sick myself, I spent the last day working on my thoughts about this, and i have been way better now, after being secluded, than I was yesterday. You should be better after this course of action, and by any means, this disease won't kill you if you stay out high-stress situations and other diseases."
"Thanks for listening, and I hope this helps. Thank you for all that talked to me and helped me get to this. Won't quote any names since I don't know who hates or loves you, and it's better for all of us if we keep everyone's profile down in the name of privacy. Have a good one, to you all. Stay safe."
*The radio would quickly quiet down after the last words, as he took his thumb off from the button, taking in a fresh breath of new air, and closing his notebook.*
