Note from me (Samantha):

Blessed be the fruit,
I have come to bear some more information regarding this pesky virus. This is another article courtesy of EJ. You can find his original piece here, and to read the rest of his articles, please click here.

It’s never easy to admit you were wrong, but I was and I stand corrected.
