China preparing flu plan...maybe

China is developing a plan to combat an avian flu pandemic, according to a story on Canada.com.

The plan outlines the organization of prevention and enforcement systems, logistics and emergency controls, the report said without giving any details. It said the ministry also urged local authorities to draw up their own plans as a precaution.

This does not sound reassuring. I'm nervous enough about our own plans here in Canada, which are publicly accessible but have very little to say about the public's own role in the pandemic. The key words in the Chinese plan seem to be "enforcement" and "controls," with the details kept a surprise until the authorities are good and ready. As for the local plans—as we've seen with Katrina, the locals will be useful scapegoats if everything blows up.
