Washington, DC, 10.06.2005
A group of Senate Democrats introduced legislation Wednesday[10.05.2005] to help America prepare for and protect against a possible avian flu pandemic. Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid joined together with Senator Barack Obama, Senator Evan Bayh, Senator Edward Kennedy, Senator Tom Harkin, and Senator Dick Durbin in introducing the Pandemic Preparedness and Response Act to provide a comprehensive approach to prepare and protect Americans from this potentially devastating virus.
Senator Barack Obama of Illinois is concerned about a bird flu pandemic [this was back in 2005].
“We must face the reality that, in this age, when you can get
on a plane in Bangkok and arrive in Chicago just hours later,
this is not a problem isolated half a world away,
but one that could impact us right here at home.
It is imperative that we act quickly and take the necessary steps
to close the preparedness gap we face in dealing with
what could be a deadly and devastating flu pandemic.”
