Hello this is Dyrmyk, I would like to quote in my words a section of a book that I read.
A bacterial infection resembling the "flesh-eating disease" will arrive in 2010, transmitted to humans by imported exotic birds carrying "almost microscopic" mites. They will be undetectable until they reach the pet shops in North America, many areas will be quarantined until a procedure is discovered on how to get rid of the infection, which is the use of a combination of electrical currents and extreme heat.
Page 210 of the book Sylvia Browne, End of Days
So everyone avoid pet shops in 2010 and avoid people with new exotic birds as well.
After I hear of the outbreak on the news, I'm locking myself in my apartment and I wont be coming out until the disease is gone from this earth.
Other than that I will live my life normally.
