September 3 Flu Update

Not much news today! Enjoy the official last day of summer here in the Northern Hempisphere.

Bird flu has been found in Egypt again.

ProMed on Egypt.

Bird flu has been found in Omsk, Russia as well.

More LPAI in Pennsylvania.

Recombinomics notes that H5 was the dominant avian flu found in the US in 2006 and wonders why.

New Scientist, employing a "publish or perish" metaphor, says that bird flu research has to be shared faster. Turns out GISAID only requires data to be published six months after research. Well, if that's the best they can do, that's the best they can do, but somehow I missed that in the initial flush of publicity.
