Another Avian Flu simulation.

According to Reuters, Asian leaders have agreed to stage a “desktop” simulation drill in early 2006, to test regional responses and communication in the event of a pandemic.

The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) group leaders, who include US President Bush, are following the EU, which also plans to hold such a simulation, due this month. There has been no further news of this since the Health Protection Agency announced that it was coordinating the exercise – but they still have a few days to go.
