A newly released study conducted by the John Hopkins University shows
that many American public health workers would not report for work doing
a bird flu pandemic. Study included all manner and sundry of health care
workers from nurses down to ward clerks.

For those of us around when AIDS first hit, this would come as no
surprise. Sadly many health care workers then either refused to have any
thing to do with such patients, or gave care that was, well shall we say
less than compassionate.

One does worry that in this self cantered world we seem to be living in
today, if any sort of pandemic broke out, from smallpox to bird flu,
would we see the same self less dedication to duty doctors, nurses and
other health care workers showed during pass events. During the last
great worldwide flu epidemic at the turn of the last century, many
nurses around the world died of the illness caught while taking care of
their charges.
