School closings, quarantines, face masks and temperature checks: Has reaction to the swine flu pandemic been overblown or is the worst yet to come? Is the vaccine safe? Is it necessary? Why has this particular flu virus warranted such extensive media coverage? Is China prepared to cope? What lessons can be gleaned from H1N1 and what can we expect from future pandemics?
Our panel of distinguished guests will discuss these and other issues related to the swine flu outbreak and China's response.
The panelists are Jorge Guajardo, Ambassador of Mexico; Dr. Lisa Cairns, World Health Organization; and Jaime FlorCruz, Beijing Bureau Chief, CNN. The discussion will be moderated by Melinda Liu, Beijing Bureau Chief, Newsweek.
