Excerpt
As the influenza season in the northern hemisphere reaches its peak, the World Health Organization (WHO) is scaling up its efforts to fight this potentially devastating disease. lnfluenza is one of the oldest and most common diseases known to man. It can also be one of the deadliest. The Spanish flu pandemic of 1918-1 91 9 -- considered to be the worst disease outbreak in the last century -- claimed up to 40 million lives and is thought to have infected half the world's population. The possibility that this could happen again was exemplified by the A(H5N1) episode in Hong Kong, Special Administrative Region of China in 1997 when one third of infected patients died. Fortunately, this outbreak did not develop into a global health emergency.
