      Question Would you return to the UK during a Flu Pandemic?

      Imagine the following:

      A new flu virus, developed from Bird Flu in Hong Kong is spreading rapidly around the world. It is expected to infect half of the global population, and 2% of those infected will die.

      The UK is an international leader in pandemic flu preparedness, and holds enough medication to treat everyone in the country who shows symptoms of the infection

      Would you go back to the UK?
