ATLANTA (Reuters) - A leading U.S. health agency staged a war game this week to test its response to one of the worst health emergencies it could imagine -- an outbreak of avian flu on American soil.
The exercise, which ended on Friday, was designed to simulate how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would marshal its resources, coordinate with other branches of government and, crucially, reassure the public while preparing it for a possible pandemic.

If you think about it, a bird flu outbreak is much worse than nuclear or
dirty bomb going off to.
With a nuke/d-bomb the people effected are going to be in a specific
area, that compared to the rest of the country is very small.
