University of Arizona pandemic drill

Posted: Updated:

Imagine hundreds, possibly millions of people coming down with the flu at the same time.  What would happen and how would they survive?

Monday medical students at the U of A who ran through the scenario found out the idea is not too far fetched.

In a small room at the University's Medical School It's quiet and organized. But these medical students are prepared for total bedlam.

More than 400 medical, nursing and pharmcidical students and faculty members spread themselves out across the school Monday morning going over training and procedures in case a flu pandemic ever broke out in the Old Pueblo.
