Passing It On

One of my coworkers is sick. She got it from her husband. He is much improved. Why? Because he has passed it on of course. You always get better after you have made someone else sick. It seems like this is the case at least.

I have to wonder if this isn't more than a coincidence? Would it be beneficial for diseases to operate on a cycle so that the gestation period (the period before you show symptoms) is similar to the time the average person actually spends being sick? Beats me but it seemed like an interesting idea when I thought of it a few minutes ago.
