With the flu season beginning, it’s certainly good to take precautions: keep warm, drink lots of fluids, avoid swine flu, et cetera. But that may be hard to do: Chinese health officials have now reported over 9,100 cases of A/H1N1 on the mainland. What’s worse, more than half of the cases have been reported in the past three weeks. In response, China’s health department has prepared enough Tamiflu for ten million people, which is a startlingly high number, even in China. We’re not the type to panic over pandemics, but we’re going to unpack our extra sweaters and sanitary face masks just in case.
