Here are some ways to avoid being killed by the hosts doctor:
BE A VIRUS, NOT A BACTERIUM.
Bacteria can be killed with antibiotics.
There is no comparable 'silver bullet' against viruses.
BE A DRUG-RESISTANT BACTERIUM.
Some bacteria strains have developed
immunity to certain antibiotics.
BE HARD TO DIAGNOSE.
If they can't figure out what you are, they
may not be able to figure out how to defeat you.
BE VERY QUICK.
Some diseases can kill before doctors
have a chance to intervene.
HAVE MILD or DECEPTIVE SYMPTOMS.
If you seem to be a cold at first,
medical treatment may be delayed
until it's too late to stop you.
BE A NON-SERIOUS DISEASE.
The most successful diseases are
those which don't threaten their hosts.
There is no worldwide campaign
to eradicate the common cold.
Well done! Youre now safe from medical intervention. You have only one last barrier to overcome - but its the biggest one of all.
How will you avoid being destroyed
by the human immune system?
