      escapee and I are online buddies elsewhere, ad their doc originally thought it was just a cold on steroids.  

      Doctors haven't seen this in a long time.  Younger docs have no experience of the disease, and the older ones who did back in the days before vaccinations are either dead or retired.

        too late/ Yes, young doctors are seeing this for the first time, Foreign trained doctors, medical centers that treat immigrants, or any old grizzzled MDs would recognize it.
