Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it,
I will also do it.
Phase 3 & 4
Phase 6: Pandemic: increased and sustained transmission in general population.
“When we think of the major threats to our national security, the first to come to mind are nuclear proliferation, rogue states and global terrorism. But another kind of threat lurks beyond our shores, one from nature, not humans – an avian flu pandemic.” Barack Obama
Given that media reports on the potential avian flu pandemic have been sparse, misleadingly optimistic or simply non-existent, many people are unaware of the threat of the H5N1 virus currently spreading through Asia and Russia. However, considerable information regarding avian influenza is available on the internet if you look for it. While newspaper headlines scream warnings of possible terrorist attacks, a more serious and much more likely threat is looming just over the horizon. And world health leaders and scientists are taking notice.
The message these sites contain is simple: the threat of a severe avian flu pandemic is real and not enough is being done to prepare for it. You have a choice: you can hide your head in the sand and hope that nothing happens, or if it does, your local/state/national government will take care of you and your family; or you can consider the possibility that a severe pandemic may be only months away and begin planning for your family’s safety and comfort NOW. Perhaps the references listed below will help you choose.
