Quickly Noted: CDC Pandemic Influenza Exercise

March 17, 2008

I got a heads up from Revere over at Effect Measure on a series of posts written by FluWikie editor, DemFromCT about an exercise the CDC was holding last week.

DemFromCT has consistently been involved in pandemic flu issues, from the liberal blog, DailyKos.com to guest posting on the PandemicFlu.gov blog (and somehow he’s got a job, too).

The CDC allowed selected bloggers to act as observers to this exercise, and DemFromCT was one of those invited. He gives us a first-hand view of the preparations being taken in Atlanta for pandemic flu. For those of you who have been in an EOC during an exercise, you understand how real it can seem. Really very cool stuff. Split into two posts, based upon the two days that DemFromCT observed, you can read the first here, and the second here.
