What Is Pandemic Influenza?

Post  LILMaMa on Mon Mar 22, 2010 1:24 am

A pandemic is a global disease outbreak. An infl uenza pandemic occurs when a new infl uenza virus emerges for which there is little or no
immunity in the human population and spreads easily person-to-person. The federal government, states, communities and industry are taking
steps to prepare for and respond to an infl uenza pandemic. Certain public health measures may be implemented, including:
• Treating sick and exposed people with antivirals
• Isolating sick people in hospitals, homes or other facilities
• Identifying and quarantining exposed people
• Closing schools and workplaces as needed
• Canceling public events
• Restricting travel
