Flu pandemic “inevitable”


So said the WHO’s general-director in Geneva.  Well, there’s some bright news for your Monday morning.  It’s estimated the pandemic could cost $800 billion worldwide.

If you take it for granted the other 364 days of the year, this kind of story really makes you appreciate living in a country with a modern healthcare system.  It also makes me thankful that I was able to get into the Vanguard Health Care fund last time it was opened to new investment.  At least if I end up dying of the flu, I’ll be making some money in the process.
