Such a world-wide outbreak will cause intense human suffering, disruption of social systems, major economic losses, and greatly burden health care services. Several pandemics during the last century, like the 'Spanish flu' (1918), the 'Asian flu' (1957), the 'Hong Kong flu' (1968) and SARS (2003) prompted health care authorities for preparedness planning.
