WSJ HERE. EXCERPT:
Scientists are baffled and deeply worried by the latest outbreak of swine flu for two reasons: It appears to combine bird, swine and human viruses in a way that hasn't been seen before, and it is spreading from person to person.
Although swine flu has been known to sporadically infect people, it has usually occurred in rare cases in which the virus jumps from swine to humans who are directly exposed to the animals, such as pig farmers. The virus that has surfaced in Mexico -- and apparently California and Texas -- is known as A/H1N1, a strain that hasn't been previously detected in pigs or humans.
The recent fast-spreading outbreak of swine influenza A (H1N1) in Mexico and the US is causing concern for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and panic across the general population. With no vaccine in place, the CDC recommends proactive measures as the best solution to preventing more illness and loss of life, making rapid and pervasive communication critical.MORE HERE AND HERE VIA GLENN...
