So are you pandemic ready? Are you worried about the swine flu? Or taking a wait and see approach? Or think this is all overblown entirely?
I am slightly worried. But mostly wait and see. For whatever reason, it seems like cases outside of Mexico are not as serious. And most new cases are coming from people who directly traveled to Mexico - not a lot of transmission between people in new areas. I think it's likely, as with the big one from 1918, that the flu will go underground throughout the summer, to re-emerge, possibly more virulent, in the fall. But, that gives our scientists 4-5 months to develop a vaccine. But I am thinking about starting to stockpile non perishable supplies - slowly, over the summer. Just buying a few extras every pay period kind of thing, to build up a small stockpile.
What about you? How worried are you, and do you have a stockpile?
