Swine Flu Spreads in New Jersey

Our last posting on this disease indicated that there were 5 confirmed cases in New Jersey; the total is now 56. In a press release,  State Health Commissioner Howard has stated that  the flu is in every region of the Garden State. We have already listed resources on this malady; here are some more:  H1N1 Influenza Center(from the New England Joural of Medicine with full-text articles back to 1837);  Influenza A (H1N1)(from DynaMed with copious links); and H1N1 Flu Resource Centre( from the Lancet featuring articles  and information from 40 Elsevier journals and 11 learned societies). The following publications from CRS should also be consulted: The 2009 Influenza A(H1N1) Outbreak: Selected Legal Issues; Avian Flu Pandemic: Potential Impact of Trade Disruptions; Would an Influenza Pandemic Qualify as a Major Disaster Under the Stafford Act?; Public Health and Medical Preparedness and Response: Issues  in the 111th Congress; and Pandemic Flu and Medical Biodefense Countermeasure Liability Limitation.
