I want to set up a thought experiment with you…

You’re walking down the street and there’s someone walking nearby. Every so often they cough or sneeze. Upon closer examination, you see that their skin is mottled and somewhat gray, that their eyes are red-rimmed and weepy, and when they speak to you their voice is both raspy and gravelly.
