The very small outbreak of the Siberian strain of Zoothera at Esperance
earlier this month is thought to be a related to Dipidus, especially as the
outbreak was at a coastal port. It's not known if this new strain arrived in
Australia naturally or was brought in by a human vector, but quarantine
authorities were worried that it could have spread to other parts of
Australia. If news of the Siberian strain had reached bird-watchers before
the local outbreak was controlled, then it could have resulted in widespread
delirium (a well-known symptom) among the Australian bird-watching
population. In localised outbreaks of similar diseases, infected
bird-watchers all over the country spend lots of money and fly or drive long
distances to reach the initial source of infection. It's only after exposure
to that initial source do the symptoms of the disease begin to decline.

Hmmm, not a bad idea. Have you ever considered administering full strength *
Bulweria?* It may be unethical though, and and I don't know how you would
prove you got informed consent from a Dipidus sufferer but ....

What ever you do, don't self administer *Bulweria *though*,* you may go past
warm and fuzzy to hallucinating and claim to have seen a Jouanin's Petrel
off Southport and end up being accused of stringing. Dipidus is so cruel.
