Flu pandemic could choke Internet, requiring usage restrictions

Flu pandemic could choke Internet, requiring usage restrictions: "February 12, 2007 (Computerworld) -- Many companies and government agencies are counting on legions of teleworkers to keep their operations running in the event of an influenza pandemic. But those plans may quickly fall apart as millions of people turn to the Internet for news and even entertainment, potentially producing a bandwidth-choking surge in online traffic."

It would not only be the Telecommunications I would worry about but also Power and all the other utilities that we could have difficulty with. But then again the conspiracy theorist in me thinks back to Millennium Bug, Sars, Democracy (come on does it still exist??) and wonders is this a healthy bit of distraction?
