for physicians of all specialties to be trained in disaster medicine is why the AADM and its board exam were founded," Klein explained. "The AADM's belief has always been that it takes the collective community of all physicians, including family practitioners, internists, emergency room physicians, trauma surgeons, and psychiatrists, to fulfill the roles of assisting our country and population in the event of a disaster."

What in essence was initially a pig-isolated virus has now transmitted itself to humans. This is often a concern for any new viruses.

2. What is causing the spread of the virus, and is this a bio-terrorism concern?
