New York planning since February for the pandemic

The August 21 New York Times has a story on the city's pandemic planning: When a Bug Becomes a Monster.

If a pandemic similar to the one of 1918 occurred today, as many as 2.8 million New York City residents could be infected within months, sending more than 200,000 to the hospital and clogging the morgues with 400 deaths a day during the peak infection period.
