    1. Dr. Shoshana Says:

      It is well known that influenza outbreaks tend to occur in schools first. The portion of the population that has been most affected by bird flu is in the age 10-19 category. School plans need to serve as an “early warning” system. If symptoms breakout there and quick action taken to identify and treat infected children (or adults), some containment could occur. It is not enough to have a plan…as Hurricane Katrina clearly demonstrated. If people do not know what is in the plan or are unable to implement the plan, the results can be catastrophic.

      However, once a pandemic occurs the spread will be very rapid. Coughing, sneezing, contaminating items through touch are especially common behaviors in children. Bird flu is no ordinary flu, and to date it has killed 56% of those infected, and 73% of those infected between the ages of 10-19. Knowing what to do in the home becomes as important as having a school plan.
