Read the entry here […] British Columbian? Over 98? Please call
Yesterday Helen Branswell reported on a British Columbia project to interview people who recall the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918-19. Dr. Danuta Skowronski was just on CBC radio talking about it, so I went to the BC Centre for Disease Control where I found this announcement: Pandemic Profiles: Are You Ninety-Eight Years or Older? Excerpt:

The BCCDC will be conducting face-to-face or telephone interviews with British Columbians who were born in 1908 or earlier and have a lasting memory of the 1918-1920 pandemic. If you know of someone who has a compelling experience and might be interested in participating in this survey, please contact Westcoast Clinical Research at 604-524-7141 or by email at wccr AT telus DOT net.

Pandemic flu planning

“Although no one knows how the virus would affect various age groups, the CDC assumes that children would be twice as vulnerable to the disease as adults. Hedberg said the theory is that a pandemic form of flu might resemble the 1918 pandemic that disproportionately hit young healthy people. Seasonal flu, by contrast, is hardest on the elderly.”

If the bird or avian H5N1 flu becomes human H5N1, it will be especially important for older people to have updated their preparedness plans (we all did prepare revised plans since last August, didn’t we?) There will be differences from the 1918 pandemic, as indicated in the news article. But, also a lot of similarities. It will be important for those who have lived through previous disasters or epidemics to share what they learned about what worked and what didn’t work.
