Thomas Crampton: World bird-flu risk is ‘gravest possible’

From The International Herald Tribune:

“We must address the root causes of this disease to have any impact,” he

said. “The key is stopping transmission routes between animals and humans.”

Researchers have long cited the living condition that place poultry, pigs

and humans in close proximity as the reason southern China has long been

world’s primary source of emergent influenza strains.

“We need to look beyond strict issues of public health and address

lifestyle issues in Asia,” Omi said. “Coordination will be needed between

ministries of health, ministries of agriculture and on an international

level from donor countries.”
