A sigh of relief across Europe as the European Centre for Disease Control (ECDC), the Commission and the Member States agreed a common definition for cases of novel influenza virus A(H1N1). Action indeed.
Meanwhile, in an effort to inform the public, the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) [shouldn’t that be ACDC? Ed] has begun an emergency twitter feed, offering essential information and updates such as:
“CDC reminds you that you can NOT get swine flu from eating pork” Useful information indeed.
There’s no use calling the CDC hotline, however…. you’ll just get crackling.
