This article challenges the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush to exert more effort in preventing Avian flu instead of trying to cure it. The author notes the decision of Bush to allot a total of $7.1 billion for buying drugs, vaccines, and developing new technology to combat the disease. The author claims that of the money, Bush has only set aside $250 million for containment of the disease outside the U.S. or 3.5 per cent for prevention of a disease that the author claims does not yet exist.
