American Academy of Disaster Medicine's (AADM) President Comments on U.S. Public Health System, Discusses Swine Flu Infection and Prevention

erson to person, the virus can mutate more rapidly making it much more difficult to identify and treat. At this time no bio-terrorism-related concern has been noted according to the recent briefing by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

3. What are the symptoms of this new swine flu in humans?

5. How can I keep myself and my family from catching the swine flu?

a) Wash your hands after contact with anyone
