I've just heard reports that local Toronto hospitols are taking this threat very seriously. They are encoraging everyone to get their normal flu
shots so that it will free up beds for the H5N1 patients when they arrive. Authorities used the word Pandemic a number of times so they are
taking this seriously. How goes preparations down south?
Yes I'm hearing the samething on tv. There saying scientist are saying "not if" but "when" . I had my son to a local hosp in the summer and the
nurse was about 10ft from us asking questions if we'd been out of the country ect, I asked her if we had answered yes to one of those questions what
she would have done, she said she would have put on proper gear to pertect herself and taken my son to a quarentine room, then I perseeded to ask
about the avian flu and she said its a plane ride away.
