Summary of News for 26 November 2006.

(From WHO as at 13 Nov - latest update)

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

The Webster-Govorkova piece below was reviewed by Effect Measure here.

...the Commentary by Robert Webster and Elena Govorkova that accompanies the two papers is a model of clarity and a stunning summary of where we are at this moment. Hardly a word of the 1600 word essay is wasted.
