  •  Individuals can prepare...but won't. Human nature (0+ / 0-)

    Expecting individuals to prepare for disasters with 1-6 months supplies of food and energy is not realistic.  We watch people move back to burned out, flooded homes year after year and that's with fires, floods and storms of 1-10 year frequency much less the 100 year plus possibility of a flu epidemic.

    It's just not going to happen.

    Only practical solution from government standpoint is to beef up vaccine system and treatment systems, provide funding for civic authorities to prepare and practice with what resources they have.

    Those are going to be relatively modest amounts, $10B per year range.
