Swine Flu

Wow, where did this one come from? Swine flu has arrived in the news like a breath of fresh air from the recession. Nothing like a global pandemic to send George Lee on a long weekend. The good news is that thanks to bird flu the Irish government came up with a plan to deal with a pandemic. Apparently the plans and the antivirals like tamiflu put in place for avian flu will work for swine flu as well. Worth reading, if only for the sentence on page 3 that encourages a spate of panic buying.

If and when a pandemic becomes imminent, you will need to stock up on essential medicines, food and other supplies.

Right so, I'm off to clean the guns and set the man traps around the apartment block. ;-)
