It is now being reported that New York is being prepared for the possibility that up to 85,000 people may die this Fall from the "swine flu." If that happens, then it is likely that we will see martial law and mass quarantines of affected populations as Rep. Broun recently said. That is scary!
City officials are bracing for a surge of swine flu cases this fall and funeral home directors need to be prepared to accommodate a possible related 50,000 to 85,000 deaths, the director of the Metropolitan Funeral Directors Association told a gathering of funeral home representatives in Forest Hills last week.
“As funeral directors, we really need to know what we’re about to face,” Martin Kasdan said. “When swine flu comes back, it could possibly be devastating.”
