ACT III – AT THE DOCTOR`S OFFICE
(The Doctor is sitting at his desk. Mrs. Klein is sitting in front of him)
MRS. KLEIN: Well, doctor?.
DOCTOR: I´m afraid your son has Swine Flu.
MRS. KLEIN: What`s Swine Flu?. I`ve never heard of that.
DOCTOR: Let me explain it to you. Swine Flu, Swine Influenza, or Human Influenza, is a respiratory disease highly contagious.
MRS. KLEIN: Contagious?. Do you mean that someone infected my son?.
DOCTOR: I don`t know, but the disease spreads through coughing or sneezing of people who may have the virus, or through touching something with the virus on it.
MRS. KLEIN: But where did he get it?.
DOCTOR: It might have been in school, at church, at the stadium, in the park, anywhere where there are many people gathered.
MRS. KLEIN: Is there a vaccine or some medication that can cure him?.
DOCTOR: Fortunately there are medications that can cure him. Especially in your case, because you brought him on time.
MRS. KLEIN: Do you mean that if I have waited more time something might had happened to him?
DOCTOR: Probably, there could had been complications, but that is not your case.
MRS. KLEIN So, what`s the next step?.
DOCTOR: In a few minutes we will give him the appropriate medications for his illness. I just need your approval to do it.
MRS.KLEIN: There is no problem. Where do I sign?
(The Doctor gives her some paper to sign. She signs the papers)
DOCTOR: Once he is on treatment, please go home and keep him inside until he is completely well.
MRS. KLEIN: What about us?.
DOCTOR: I suggest that all of you stay home, the time that is necessary.
MRS.KLEIN: What else should we do?.
DOCTOR: Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after your cough and sneeze. If you cough or sneeze use disposable tissues, put them in a plastic bag, and throw them in the trash. Also it`s very important to keep your house clean and well ventilated.
MRS. KLEIN: What about if I have to go out?.
DOCTOR: Then, you should avoid kissing other people and hand shaking, and wear a face mask.
MRS. KLEIN: What about food?. What kind of food should we eat?.
DOCTOR: Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables that have vitamin C.
MRS. KLEIN: Should we avoid pork products?.
DOCTOR: Swine flu can`t be spread through pork products, since the virus is not transmitted through food. If you follow my recommendations, George will be fine in about five days.
MRS. KLEIN: Oh, thank your doctor.
DOCTOR: Just follow my instructions, and come back in three more days or before if he doesn`t feel well.
(They stand and leave the stage)
ACT IV – AT GEORGE`S HOSPITAL BED
(The Nurse is giving George some medicine)
DOCTOR: Don`t worry Mrs. Klein, he will be fine.
MRS. KLEIN: hank your doctor.
