Time;5/15/2006, Vol. 167 Issue 20, p14
The article looks at U.S. President George W. Bush's plan to deal with an outbreak of a disease like avian flu. Bush's Implementation Plan is the follow-up to the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza. The plan is to try and contain problems overseas, show people in the U.S. that the President is in command, and keep people informed so they will be calmer. If avian flu strikes then state and local law enforcement, backed by the National Guard, may have to isolate or quarantine victims.
