Reliable Info on Swine Flu

Check out Otterman‘s post on “Communicating the Swine influenza A (H1N1) crisis” at the Biorefugia

For the H1N1, I find these same (as in SARS) international and local sources useful:

* WHO Disease Outbreak News

* Center for Disease Control and Prevention: Swine Influenza (Flu): cdc.gov/swineflu/

* CDC has a twitter account, @CDCemergency!

* Ministry of Health, Singapore: Update on Global Human Swine Influenza – helpfully this URL: moh.gov.sg, brings you right there.

New sites I refer to include:

* Channel News Asia special on the Swine Flu Outbreak – note the useful, simple URL: channelnewsasia.com/swineflu/

* CNN Health: Swine Flu

* BBC: Swine Flu Special Report
* News aggregators (search term = “swine flu”): Google and Yahoo

The Just-in-time Swine influenza lecture

As a result, here it is: “Just-in-Time Lecture: Swine influenza A (H1N1) Outbreak in US & Mexico: Potential for a Pandemic,” by Rashid A. Chotani. Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS). Updated daily. The html and powerpoint versions are available at this Supercourse site at the WHO Collaborating Center, University of Pittsburgh.
