“I have Japanese Encephalitis,” a woman on the phone told her. “Really? Have you been to a doctor?” Eliza scratched the letters JE on her purple notepad and began to take the report. “No, I just think, I mean, I am pretty sure that’s what I have.” “Ok. Why do you think that? Have you traveled outside of the country recently?” “No, I think I must be the first person to get it in the United States. I looked up my symptoms on the internet and that sounds exactly like what I have.”
