President Obama has formally declared bacon flu a national emergency. The conspiracy theorists are gonna go nuts:
As a practical matter, officials said, the waiver could allow a hospital in danger of being overwhelmed with swine flu patients to remove them, and any emergency room visitors suspected of having the illness, to a location such a local armory to segregate such cases for treatment.
In a few cases, hospitals already have set up tents on their sites.
Can’t wait to see how the pork lobby’s going to try to spin this. Link.
