  • I am not sure about it yet. It does kind of make you want to stay home in the safety of your own home, though, doesn't it?!

  • If it's going to be like the pandemic of 1918-19, then there's not much one can do... I honestly don't think that this will be like that (any more than the avian flu) but if it turns out to be hopefully the gov'ts will have learned from that time, from the countries with the least fatalities, and people will take the measures needed - little to no international travel by air or sea, effective quarantines, and simple good hygiene.
