Pandemic Planning Made Easy
New York, February 4,2009
The Pandemic Flu of 1918 spread to every country in the world and killed over 40 million people. The Asian Flu of 1957-58 killed 70,000 people in the United States. In 2003 Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) spread to 37 countries in a matter of weeks, killed nearly 10% of the 8,000 people it infected, and caused widespread disruption to trade and tourism.
The next pandemic is expected at any time. Governments everywhere are concerned that one of the current outbreaks of Avian Flu may mutate into something as deadly as the 1918 influenza outbreak. If it does, vaccines and anti-virals are unlikely to contain the outbreak. Many organizations therefore place pandemics at the top of their list of major risks.
ďA pandemic is not like other disasters: it canít be dealt with by simply relocating your staff to a new location. Your existing business continuity plan probably wonít help. You need to minimize both the probability and the effects of a disruption so that you can continue despite the staff shortages, supplier disruptions, uncertainty and panic a pandemic can cause.Ē said a spokesman for Binomial.
