Mutations Are Not Our Friends

From Nature magazine:

Scientists studying virus samples from the human outbreak of avian flu in Turkey have identified three mutations in the virus’s sequence. They say that at least two of these look likely to make the virus better adapted to humans.

(HT: Effect Measure, which has much, more more on the background science of the flu’s path towards easy human-to-human transmission.)

William Stanhope, associate director of the Institute for Biosecurity at Saint Louis University School of Public Health: “Businesses need to develop contingency plans immediately that will allow'”and encourage'”their employees to work from home.”

More from Stanhope:

“What’s most important is for disaster recovery specialists within companies to take a hard look at the national pandemic plan and form a corporate response. And it is absolutely essential for businesses'”especially multinational corporations'”to meet with their local and state health departments and begin a dialogue. Too often there is a disconnect between private business and public health departments, and we need to bridge that gap as soon as possible so we are prepared if and when the pandemic strikes.”

California officials make a start towards planning.
