Bush has a plan for the pandemic

Administration Releases Bird Flu Response Plan
College Dorms, Surgical Masks To Play Central Role

— reported by Click2Houston.com


A draft of the Bush plan said a worst-case outbreak could kill as many as 2 million Americans.

The draft recommends colleges be ready to select dorms to quarantine the sick.

It also suggests airlines put masks on suspect passengers and that employers place workers at least three feet apart.

However, the draft does not foresee a closure of U.S. borders.


If infected birds arrive in the U.S. within the next few weeks as predicted, there could be outbreaks among birds in the lower 48 states by late summer.
