  •  $1 for CT with 3.5m people? (4.00)
    That's absurd, I had no idea preparation was that bad over there.

    Don't mean to gloat, but I'm just glad I live in a country of a similar population (New Zealand, 4m) that has spent tens of millions stocking up Tamiflu, improving civil defence, preparing scenarios, and updating readiness of hospitals and essential services. $1 million wouldn't even cover the government ad campaign that's getting started.

    P.S. If you haven't already, check out kos user AlphaGeek's diaries. Best disaster preparation manual I've read.

    •  NZ has one of the best prep plans in the world (none)
      we Yanks are in catch-up mode. BTW, the NZ department of health regularly links to Flu Wiki.
