Low-Flying Planes

The best defense against panic is continual communication by the administration and health officials with the American public. Frequent updates about the progress of the flu in the US and worldwide, reminders of the symptoms of the flu, and progress in the manufacture of anti-virals and vaccines; such information should be broadcast throughout the country on a daily basis.

The lack of any forewarning about the flight of two airplanes over lower Manhattan is an example of the panic that can be caused because of poor communication.
