20 February 2006 America shuts down

In the fiction "The flu pandemic: were we ready?" written by Declan Butler in Nature it was hypothesised an avian flu epidemy. In this fiction, on February 20th (today), the martial law was declared and the arnachie threatened in front of pharmacies. At this time there is only one duck contaminated by H5N1 which penetrated the French airspace... For the moment.... (I suspect my neighbours to hide a few sample of tamiflu :-)...)

That recalls me this great manga "20th century Boys" written by Naoki Urasawa, prize winner of the "Festival D' Angoulème", in which a human-engineered virus devastated the Earth and where the population was involved in a civil war to get an access to the vaccine.
