The Game of Flu
Swine flu is one of the big stories these days as we approach another flu season in the northern hemisphere. How do you control a flu epidemic? Well, Dutch researchers are going to let you give it a try by playing the Great Flu Game. Your goal is to control the worldwide pandemic through a variety of means such as stockpiling anti-virals, closing schools, restricting travel, etc. You even get to choose the virus you want to track. Everything you do has a cost and you have a budget, so you can’t do everything (which means you may not be able to save some very unhappy people). How much do you spend on research vs anti-virals vs vaccines?
I haven’t gotten a chance to play the game yet, but it looks interesting. Guess I have to save the world tonight.
