Kids TV series causes rash

A mysterious illness is sweeping Portuguese schools as children complain of symptoms similar to those suffered by characters in a teenage television show.

Hundreds of children have complained of symptoms including rashes, breathing difficulties and dizziness at 14 schools across Portugal. The National Institute for Medical Emergencies (INEM) has already been called by five schools in the Northern region of Portugal to investigate the mysterious virus but were unable to find any “rational” explanation to the rashes.

Doctors have named it the "Strawberries with Sugar Virus" as the outbreak came a few days after the popular television show of that name aired an episode about a life-threatening virus descending on a school.

Olá Luís,
Já há muito tempo que a série "Morangos com açucar" se tornou pesada para a faixa etária a que se dirige! Têm sido inumeros os "virús" que têm surgido na sequência desta "febre" e outras que tais que proporcionam um excesso de informação um tanto ou quanto violenta para miúdos que ainda não a sabem gerir da melhor maneira e depois exteriorizam, não tanto a mensagem que os autores destes textos pretendem passar, mas as que eles interpretam, a saber:relacionamentos intimos aos 12 ou 13 anos de idade, a escola é uma chatice, etc
Não me surpreende que andem todos com o "virús", depois de uns quantos episódios em que se abordou a questão do mesmo!
Beijinhos Luís
