From last week’s Avian Flu News tracker, which I missed while traveling:

8:30 p.m.: A leading bird-flu expert says H5N1 is the worst flu virus he’s ever encountered, and that far too many gaps in planning and knowledge persist for the world to handle it in the event of a pandemic. The virus is a virulent killer in poultry, moving into the brain and destroying the respiratory tract, said Robert G. Webster, a virologist at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. “I’ve worked with flu all my life, and this is the worst influenza virus that I have ever seen,” said Mr. Webster, who has studied bird flu for decades. “If that happens in humans, God help us.”

Has your local government done anything to prepare? First repsonders briefing? Identification of central treatment facility? Stockpile of antivirals? Plan for distribution of them?

If you haven’t asked, then you are part of the problem.
