So where are we in this whole H5N1 thing then, anyway? It seems down to the wire, a mutation is imminent. I watched the Discovery Channel Dramafest about it, and Michael Levitt made sure to let me know to get plenty of:
- "Special masks" (N-95 designated)
- Water and Non-Perishables
Is that really such a good idea, pumping up the Tamiflu like that? I mean, there's already worldwide shortages, is it wise to tell Middle America to start hoarding the stuff?
