July 16 Flu Update

Little story, big potential impact...a Senator in Thailand suspects that bird flu is back among poultry in that country.

ProMed on the Indonesian death reported yesterday. The government insists that he had contact with a dead chicken.

Russia wants a bird flu centre in its borders...and the G8 agrees.

Russia says it will have 60 million doses of bird flu vaccine for humans available in September.

India has developed a vaccine for birds, too.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services is releasing guidelines for how people can prepare for the bird flu.

Cincinnati Enquirer contains a guest column from two Miami University faculty members that says that the bird flu is worse than the threat of terrorism. This is, truth be told, what first got me interested in the flu. With all the focus on terrorism, the flu could really cost some lives.
