Decide later, now

Globally, concerns over the H1N1 Swine flu have eased.

Over time we've learned a lot more about the disease.  And we have more time to plan.  Though more time doesn't always lead to better decisions.

There are 4,379 confirmed cases of the of the virus in 29 countries with 49 deaths.

Global decision making to date has been varied.  Some countries closed schools, some didn't.  Some wore masks, some didn't.  Some panicked, some didn't.  Why the variance?  Where's the consistency?  It would make sense that what's good for one nation is good for another if we're all fighting the same virus.
