     The last extract from the HHS report:

=============================================================================

•The epidemic in the United States will likely last 18 months, or longer, and 
could include multiple waves of illness.

=============================================================================


is not unrealistic.  The Spanish Influenza of 1918 actually had three waves 
spread out from the summer of 1918 to spring of 1919, the one during the winter 
of 1918/19 being the highest:

     I have a copy of the one book mentioned in the references, "The Great 
Influenza: The Epic Story of the Greatest Plague in History", in the mail, and 
it should be here any day now.  I want to better understand how that one 
developed and spread.

     To paraphrase a skit in Monty Python, "Nobody ever expects another Spanish 
influenza."

     And I have an idea for a horror movie about all this, "It Came From 
Beneath the Toupée"
