PAX 2009 Swine Flu Alert

Thousands of players attended PAX 2009 in Seattle, Washington—mostly to go play Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty single player, to play the Monk class in Diablo III and to play the Worgen and Goblin in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.  All demos were available at the gaming floor. The bad news is that Gabe (penny-arcade) has confirmed a case of Swine Flu (H1N1) reported by one of the PAX attendees. He requests anyone that attended the event that has fever, flu, or feels sick to email him the flight number, and to head straight to a hospital to get attended.

This is serious business. Get taken care of and spread the word to those who you know attended the examined by a doctor.

We Just heard of our first test-confirmed swine flu case at the show. PLEASE if you feel symptoms (fever, etc) call your doctor.
