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.
