Blogging in the Time of Pandemic

I missed this on my earlier scan of the Nature focus on avian flu: a fictional blog by a journalist in 2005/06, when time has run out and the pandemic is upon us.

A snippet from the 27 Feb 2006 entry:
"I watch the scenes of a society descending into chaos from the relative security of my mother's isolated home. Red tail lights snake to the horizon as people pour out of the cities. Half the doctors haven't turned up for work; many are either ill, or caring for loved ones."
