I was referring to the treatment for secondary bacterial infections, but of course there are anti-viral drugs today like Tamiflu as well.

Re: What are you doing to survive the Bird Flu......

I knew a very respected Senior Scientist at Aerospace Corporation in El Segundo, CA who was so concerned about the computer problems during the year 2000, that he bought a piece of land in Idaho in a fairly remote area and spent lots of cash building a survival home.

I don't know many details but evidently he worked out plans to defend it against desperate people made homeless by the Y2K disaster.

He literally spent most of his spare time and money on it. When he talked about it with some of us over at the base in England we would all wonder about his sanity.

So my plan for the fowl flu is to keep tabs on when he moves there and hijack his him and steal his place.
