Summary of News for 21 November 2006.

(From WHO as at 13 Nov - latest update)

Total human cases worldwide 258, deaths 153 (2006 – 111 with 76 deaths)


H5N1 Influenza — Continuing Evolution and Spread
Robert G. Webster, Ph.D., and Elena A. Govorkova, M.D., Ph.D.

There is no question that there will be another influenza pandemic someday. We simply don't know when it will occur or whether it will be caused by the H5N1 avian influenza virus. But given the number of cases of H5N1 influenza that have occurred in humans to date (251 as of late September 2006) and the rate of death of more than 50%, it would be prudent to develop robust plans for dealing with such a pandemic.
