Hey there,

You may already have heard of this story, but it's a great example of biology, medicine, public health, and public policy coming together to attack a problem that faces a large population. In this case there is an apparent outbreak of flu in Mexico with isolated clusters of cases in the United States. It's a developing story. If you worked for the CDC, how would you manage this problem?

This can be interesting. Influenza has been with us a long time as have pandemics. I read that Tamiflu is effective against the virus. I wonder if it is possible to produce enough to have an impact on the spread of the virus? Here in the Seattle area many cities, businesses, and schools have prepared for a pandemic. If it comes, we will be ready here. Thanks for the post Ken.
