    Watched the show on PBS last night. Very relevant to the current situation suggest watching it.

    Also, remembered I attended a seminar on antibiotic resistant bacterial pandemic in mid 1990s when I was with the Feds. There was an outbreak of Methicillin resistant Strep and the govt. was worried about it turning into a pandemic. It was also the time when antibiotic resistance was first coming to be recognized as a major issue. They had traced how the Strep had spread from one business traveler from Brazil who went to NYC and three other cities for meetings over a period of 4 days. The picture was scary.

    I'm scared enough now, why would I seek out additional pandemic fear?
