Did You Know...?
The Pandemic Flu of 1918, in an age without air transport, spread to every country in the world and killed over 40 million people. 
The 2009 outbreak of H1N1 Swine Flu in Mexico spread to 20 countries, infected more than 4000 people, and killed more than 100 within weeks of first being detected. It spread to over 100 countries in 3 months despite initial efforts at containment. Like the 1918 outbreak, it affects young healthy adults, rather than just the young and the old. 
In 2003 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) spread to 37 countries in a matter of weeks, killed nearly 10% of the 8,000 people it infected, and caused widespread disruption.
Recently we have been lucky. Things could easily be much worse.
It's therefore no surprise that most national and local governments place pandemics at the top of their list of risks.
Where is it on yours?
