ABSTRACT

Avian Influenza (Including Asian H7N9): Resources at Your Fingertips   [open pdf - 1MB]

"This document provides healthcare system and public health preparedness professionals, emergency managers, and other stakeholders with resources and information to consider when improving their readiness for potential human infections with avian influenza A viruses. Significant concern exists about some avian influenza A viruses, including Asian lineage A(H5N1) and A(H7N9) viruses, that have caused sporadic human infections with high mortality, but no confirmed sustained human-to-human spread. These situations highlight possible issues for providers and planners, including: [1] Sporadic cases in the US among travelers returning from affected areas; [2] The possibility of an influenza pandemic resulting from a change in one of these viruses that would allow it to infect and transmit efficiently among people."
