Doctor Jones: What seems to be the problem?
Kate: Well, since yesterday I have a really bad cough and a sore throat and I also got a headache.
Doctor Jones: How long have you been having all these symptoms?
Kate: I have them about three days now, but since yesterday they have become a lot worse and I am really tired, too as I can’t sleep due to coughing most if the night.
Doctor Jones: Well, It sounds to me that you have got flu. You must take 2 aspirin with water every four hours and must have plenty of rest. Also you must drink lots of fluids. If you are still sick next week book another appointment to see me again.
Kate: OK, thank you doctor for you time.
Doctor Jones: You’re welcome. Here is your prescription.
