The next pandemic

Foreign Affairs has an interesting, yet rather chilly section on the threat from an influenza pandemic which might already have broken out as you read this. Particularly interesting are the practical scenarios to be put in place if the pandemic struck now, in one or in ten years' time. Strangely, they seem to have missed out on a country which is also in the business of influenza vaccination - Switzerland's Berna Biotech has been doing that for quite a while now.
