Pandemic influenza is unlike other disaster's we routinely deal with. The effects of a pandemic will be widespread, likely worldwide. In addition, the emergency phase of this disaster will come in waves, stretch out over months and will be a huge draw on the health system. For governments and organizations, the primary effect of this disaster will be on staffing levels, as staff may be unable to be at work for indeterminate amounts of time.
