The author questions the preparedness of the securities industry for a swine flu pandemic. An outbreak of swine flu had crossed from Mexico into the U.S., and the World Health Organization for the first time raised its pandemic threat alert level to phase 5. He thinks that a pandemic testing exercise that the financial services industry conducted in fall 2007 is a good news. However, the test took place in a very different environment.
