Figures like 50,000 to 700,000 excess deaths due to influenza are certainly bad.

These figures though must be based on conjecture on level of conjecture and hence bear little more signifigence than talking points. How virulent would the mutated virus be? How easily transmissible? How quickly would quarantine and travel restrictions be put in place and to what level would they be enforced and observed? Surely the worst case scenario is everybody dies in the UK and the Ashes series cannot be played. Alan
