Exercise Hawthorn

Britain's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has posted an outline of Exercise Hawthorn, a drill to practice dealing with an outbreak of avian flu.

Scheduled for mid-June 2006, Exercise Hawthorn will be about coping with flu spreading in the animal population, with some attention to minimizing the chance of human infections.
