Health on a plane

Several years ago, I took a cross-country flight from Boston to San Diego, California. The weather in Boston was cold, heavy, wintry rain. Once aboard, I could hear coughing, sneezing, and blowing of noses. 

When the plane door closed, a person nearby stated that now she was going be sick after being cooped up with so many contagious people. Soon it seemed the whole plane, including me, had joined together in a kind of “symphony” of illness.
