Avian Influenza Web Resources

from Just a Bump in the Beltway:

Blogs and web pages covering the H5N1 issue to a greater or lesser extent.

Recombinomics | Elegant Evolution
Dr. Henry Niman's blog. Take-no-prisoners virology from the front lines.

Daily HealthCast
The successor to John Hart's blog.

A blog dedicated to coverage of the developing Asian influenza issue.

The Coming Influenza Pandemic?
Another dedicated H5N1 news blog.

EPIDEMIca // H5N1 // M-J Milloy
Yet another blog focused on H5N1 news.

Effect Measure
A general epidemiology news blog hosted by a group of physicians writing under the collective pen name "Revere". Strong focus on H5N1. The editorials do not pull any punches at all. "Revere" is an appropriate nom-de-guerre.

Biopeer: Avian Flu (H5N1)
The H5N1 section of a general life sciences news blog.

Cold and Flu Blog
A blog as informative about sniffles as about the Real Bad Stuff.

InfluenzaPandemic -
Not a blog. But just chock full of background data, together with an influenza chronology spanning more than 2000 years. Absolutely priceless.

CIDRAP >> Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy
Not a blog. Out of the University of Minnesota. Cutting-edge news is posted here.

Main ProMED-mail
"ProMED-mail is a program of the International Society for Infectious Diseases." Not a blog. Infectious disease news, culled from just about everywhere.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The home page of the CDC. This should be an authoritative site. But director Dr. Julie Gerberding is a Bushco appointee. Sigh.

WHO | Avian influenza
The World Health Organization's Avian Influenza page. Tracks H5N1 worldwide through the eyes of the WHO.
