    Health & Social Care Committee Pandemic response report released

    I agree with @Typhoon, we need to be prepared for the next pandemic. At some point something really nasty will come along that we are unable to make a vaccine for, and I hate to think what we will do then as the events of the last 18 months don't fill me with confidence.
