Swine Flu Inspires New Video Game
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
You may not know what to do about swine flu, but you can at least play a video game while waiting for it.
Unidentified Man: It's up to you to prevent this serious threat to the world population.
INSKEEP: Dutch researchers created a free video game. The Great Flu is online. You, too can distribute medicine, close schools and markets or find a vaccine.
It's MORNING EDITION. And remember…
Unidentified Man: The fate of the world depends on you.
