'Flu - panic now!

3m body bags could be ordered in flu alert
Ministers are considering stockpiling more than three million body bags because of fears of an impending flu pandemic, a senior Government source has revealed.
... 25 per cent of the population could be infected
... hundreds of thousands of deaths ("scientific advisors")
... body bags may have to be used twice.
... mortuaries would run out of space to store bodies
... mass burials or pyres to burn corpses as quickly as possible.
... flu was now judged to have overtaken terrorism
