Winter is here again and with it the usually bout of colds. I know cold weather doesn't give you a cold, viruses do but when its cold more people use public transport and more people mean more incidence of being sneezed on.
I am one of those unfortunate people who will often get about 3 colds in succession. This is mainly due to the fact that I use public transport a lot, my husband works in retail so he often fetches colds home he's caught from customers and I also have two children (they are little germ factories.)
I did a little picture of a cold virus while I was sat up one night snuffling. I have expanded my picture a bit so it fits the Illustration Friday word of the week which is ZOOM. I know the particulates from a sneeze zoom across a room. This link is to an article from Myth Busters who measured how fast a sneeze was and how far it went. Well thankfully this virus is waning now but no doubt I'll have another in a week or so.
