A swine flu pandemic was a no-show this past spring, but there’s no guarantee it won’t come roaring back when the regular flu season gets under way this fall. Swine flu (also called the H1N1 virus) should be taken seriously because this particular strain hasn’t been seen before, so people haven’t built up natural immunity. It’s contagious, has spread quickly around the world since it originated in Mexico, and is likely to mutate in the next few months. No one knows how the virus will mutate or how dangerous the new version will be, but we do know this: Now is the time to plan to deal with a flu pandemic should the need arise.
