This week, a presidential panel warned that the H1N1 virus could kill up to 90,000 Americans and send 200,000 to the hospital. Joining us to discuss these alarming figures (which he says he now wishes they hadn't included in the report) is Dr. Harold Varmus. He co-authored the report and is co-chair for the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. And for a look at how hospitals can ready themselves for such a stress on their resources is Dr. Jeff Kalina, an associate director of Emergency Medicine with the Methodist Hospital in Houston.
