1918 or 1347?
The enigmatic Major Kusanagi is not optimistic regards the bird flu.
I'm pretty much in agreement.
More on bird flu here.
The Majors larger point is that even if we dodge this bullet we are still not taking steps to deal with a real pandemic threat. Weather we have the technology to start doing the things she suggests is beyond my current expertise, but logically we should be pretty damned close given the strides being made in the necessary areas. Simple bioremediation experiments, which I do know something about are almost there.
Regardles of weather we have it yet, it is a perfectly linear development of current technology as far as I know, hence it is foolish to not start investing ina proactive aproach.
We need more Irascibelles.
