Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius now has authority to bypass federal rules when opening alternative care sites, such as offsite hospital centers at schools or community centers if hospitals seek permission.
That might be a politically correct way of saying "quarantine camps". I don't know. I've read that the US like most countries have signed an agreement with the World Health Organization that gives certain powers to the WHO on a local and state level to implement pandemic plans.
But digging through the national disaster preparedness plan is like reading the small print on the back of a prescription pamphlet
I don't know folks, maybe this is nothing but there's some spooky stuff that's now legal to contain this "pandemic". So far we've had adjuvant free swine flu shots but with this madness plus the shortage of vaccinations, there might come a day very soon where untested adjuvants are added to the swine flu shot and maybe the average person will be compelled to take the vaccination if they want to travel or work or shop?
Of course I wouldn't put it past our elected officials to just play games to maintain a sense of legitimacy and appearance of being "proactive" in the face of a "pandemic".
