Last quote about Influenza

Timothy Shope
Pandemic influenza is different than seasonal influenza. It is a novel virus that can be transmitted from person to person and to which most of the world's population has no immunity. So pandemic influenza preparedness involves everything we normally do for seasonal influenza except immunization, but also relies on child care centers creating plans to identify who would be responsible for notifying them of closure, how to communicate with parents in the event of a closure, and encouraging parents to have alternative care

Bearing in mind that particularly in Asia there are always different viruses bubbling up -- no region is really safe from fresh contamination, particularly from migrating wild birds. In Asia you have an almost permanent situation of influenza cases. In Europe, and particularly in western Europe, it's a situation that's particular to this year. Historically H5N8 has never been referenced as posing a potential risk to

Tom Frieden - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

As a general rule, influenza is what concerns us most. We are always concerned about the possibility of re-assortment between animal flu and human flu so, this is something that we have been watching very closely. The Health Department contacted more than 80 percent of the people who adopted cats from the Manhattan shelter, and none is suspected of having

Economic losses caused by (avian influenza) is estimated to cost up to 1.4 trillion won (US$1.17 billion) if 30 percent of Korea's poultry population gets

We've seen that there have been cases of wild birds contaminating domestic poultry. It's a risk that we clearly can't rule out. That's why it's very important all the farmers' protection measures are taken to avoid the transfer of the virus from the wild to our

Michael Worobey

It is an extra barrier that is probably protecting us from even more frequent influenza

James Lloyd-Smith

Our findings show clearly that this 'childhood imprinting' gives strong protection against severe infection or death from two major strains of avian influenza. These results will help us quantify the risk of particular emerging influenza viruses sparking a major

Dolph Baker - Cal-Maine Foods

As the supply of shell eggs moved higher after the disruptions created by the Avian Influenza outbreak in the spring of 2015, market prices declined. Retail demand remained favorable; however, lower institutional demand for egg products and reduced egg exports pushed inventory levels higher and created additional pricing

Research shows that in addition to severe chest infections, flu may also lead to heart attacks and strokes. Most severe influenza complications occur in the elderly and people who suffer from long-term conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and

This large study provides more evidence that when women are immunized against influenza during pregnancy, their infants are much less likely to be diagnosed with influenza in their first six months of life. Pregnant women may be concerned about harm, but they need to understand that there is strong evidence that getting vaccinated against influenza during pregnancy protects both themselves and their babies from serious

Leonardo Pereira

When a mother who refused the flu vaccine delivers, her newborn baby is more likely to contract influenza and more likely to require hospitalization compared to babies born to mothers who were vaccinated during

Joseph Bresee

Flu activity this season started a bit later and has been lower so far than we've seen during the previous three seasons, but activity is still on the upswing and expected to continue for several weeks. Flu causes serious illnesses and deaths every year. This season, the CDC has received reports of hospitalizations and deaths in young, otherwise healthy people who were infected with influenza A H1N1, but not

Chen Zhen

Pollution and using too many electronic devices and chemicals only makes the situation worse, as these factors weaken the immune system. Viruses are getting stronger, epidemics last longer, a simple influenza can last weeks; we have all experienced this, at least in Central

York Chow

The risk of avian influenza in Hong Kong is not significantly higher than before, but since there is one case we have to be very

Debby Reynolds

No I can't confirm it, it's the H5 highly pathogennic strain of avian influenza but I've not yet got the N1 results so it's too soon to

Philip Tod

All the virological tests carried out to date in Romania have proven negative for the presence of the avian influenza virus. So every day that passes reassures our confidence that there is not an outbreak of avian influenza in

Thomas Muster

We have produced our vaccine with so-called reverse genetics. That means that we can do everything faster. In three or four days we can generate any strain of the influenza, both seasonal influenza or a influenza epidemic, to start the production of the

We know that if this situation evolves, one of the questions that will come up very soon is, what is the availability of a vaccine?' We're already working with our collaborating centres, we have begun the preliminary work to prepare influenza viruses for a potential swine vaccine, if we need

Keiji Fukuda - World Health Organization

The labelling of the pandemic as fake is to ignore recent history and science, and to trivialise the deaths of over 14,000 people and the many serious additional illnesses experienced by others. So, let me state clearly for the record: the influenza pandemic policies and responses recommended and taken by the WHO were not improperly influenced by the pharmaceutical

David Nabarro

I am expecting to see outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza in a number of locations over the next three or four months and I am basing that on what happened last

Margaret Chan - World Health Organization

The scientific criteria for an influenza pandemic have been met. I have therefore decided to raise the level of Influenza Pandemic alert from Phase 5 to Phase 6. The world is now at the start of the 2009 influenza
