Too much knowledge can exaggerate the danger of a pandemic

Amid the uncertainty over whether this swine flu outbreak will expand from a serious Mexican epidemic into the global pandemic long expected by public health authorities, one thing is certain. As events unfold, the public will know more about the viral disease, its progress through human populations, what authorities are doing in response and what individual citizens can do for themselves, their families and their neighbors than at any time in human history. This can be both a blessing and a curse.
