Government Beginning to Warn on Swine Flu

The government is now beginning to warn the public on the seriousness of the swine flu pandemic. While the administration is clearly worried about the impact this will have on the economy, they now appear to be growing concerned about the actual health impact. They are taking a number of steps to rein in the virus, including speeding up vaccines. However, they are not instructing schools to stay closed if an outbreak begins, a step I find surprising.
