Pandemic Influenza

It is getting warm outside and on some days the sun is shining, which means the end of flu season, right? Well, back in November we posted on the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza, now the government has come up with an plan to fight global influenza. The "Implementation Plan: National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza" has information on how the federal government is addressing this threat and has advice for states, schools (check out page 194 for Colleges), and law enforcement. If the idea of reading 233 pages on flu makes you a little sick, why not check out the briefing book, which is a much more manageable 26 pages. And finally for a non-governmental perspective, check out the Washington Post Article "White House Plan Defers Leadership in Bird-Flu Fight."
