I have to chime in on this.
Do any of you remember the dead microbiologist list?
While expecting Aventis and Chiron's presentations to promote sales of their products, one does not expect the government to admit how it intentionally provides the media with disinformation to promote flu scare and the flu vaccine remedy.
The government scares us into beliving things are bad for us so they can make laws against anything they dont like and so Americans will have less and less freedoms.
The tradeoff between security and civil liberties has received a tremendous amount of public attention because the media has decided to give it a tremendous amount of attention; the risk if a pandemic has received little public attention at least in part because the press doesn't like to report on it nearly as much.
Meanwhile, the "Biodefense and Pandemic Vaccine and Drug Development Act of 2005" (S. 1873), recently passed out of the U.S. Senate HELP Committee one day after it was introduced. The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is calling the bill "a drug company stockholder's dream and a consumer's worst nightmare." This bill, spurred by bird flu fears, will broadly eliminate corporate liability for vaccines and drugs. This bill will soon go to the full Senate for a vote.

Swine Flu Outbreak May Spark UN Agency Review of Pandemic Alert
Last Updated: April 25, 2009 04:51 EDT
WHO’s alert level is at level 3, meaning there is no, or very limited, human-to-human transmission of a potential pandemic virus.
April 25 (Bloomberg) -- The deadly swine flu outbreak that’s spread across Mexico and infected people in California and Texas may be declared an international health emergency.
The World Health Organization will hold a teleconference with flu experts at 4 p.m. Geneva time to decide whether the situation is “a public health event of international concern,” said Gregory Hartl, a WHO spokesman.
At least 68 have died and more than 1,000 have fallen ill with flu-like symptoms in the Mexico City region in the past month, Jose Cordova, Mexico’s Health Minister, told reporters yesterday. The country’s government has shut schools and distributed face masks.

If this thing does go global /pandemic you are going to need more than just a few supplies, more like at least 3 months worth of food, 6 even. Think about it - if people began dropping like flies it will hit the food transportation, manufacturing and production and of course as more people wake up to the threat you'll have more people buying in bulk and less food on the shelves .
some people even worry it might affect water , gas and electricity plants if workers start getting sick/flaking in which case it might be prudent to get a small camp stove-cookery set, gas, water, calour gas fire and canisters etc.....maybe this is going to far but at the very least you'd need a GOOD stock of food, toiletries, household products and so forth. And I'd avoid buying alot of dried goods that need soaking and boiling like pulses and beans as well as going overboard on freezer supplies incase there were problems with water/electricity ...canned would be better
