September 19 Flu Update

Some people have told Nick Zamiska of the Wall Street Journal that WHO is emphasizing bird flu at the expense of other diseases like TB and AIDS.

Now there's a retrospective case in Iraq...a young boy in March who survived.

CIDRAP on the Iraqi case.

Effect Measure on board with a highly scientific article. Here's the question: does the bird flu have to moderate as it mutates toward a pandemic. That's the convention wisdom, but Revere warns that we might want to think twice about that one.

The UK will screen birds for H5N1 primarily in areas where it has been most likely to have occurred.

WHO says it only has half the money it needs to fight the bird flu.

The International Red Cross has lauded efforts to fight the flu in Indonesia.

Prince William County (MD) is beginning to look at a bird flu plan.

Ugandan traders have been warned not to eat chicken if they are doing business in the Southern Sudan.

The article tortures the metaphor a little, but makes the point that there are bigger things (like bird flu) to fear then terrorrism.
