Very informative and educational. thanks!!
Thanks, I appreciate the knowledge!
god this will scare me…. O_O thanks for the knowledge anyway
we need more computer scientists to create awesome algorithms to
automatically generate vaccines for new viruses
How an #Influenza #pandemic could spread. The issue is both technical
and managerial, and it may illustrate a failure of application.
Technically and *scientifically* , we understand the issue. It’s no wonder
the virus is so effective at spreading; it is an *ever **#evolving**
threat* with at least 256 theoretically possible combinations and so many
animal reservoirs. So far, it seems #BirdFlu may be pandemic in Birds
alone… But it is a matter of time before it becomes pandemic in humans.
From a *management* perspective, we don’t even want to think about it, let
alone implement the lessons of #RiskAssessement . This pandemic would be
no #BlackSwan , and we’re not prepared for it. All the worldwide thinking
about #HealthcareReform is hobbled by the futile search for #Efficiency in
hospitals, and leaves them far too #LeanAndMean , un-equipped for *when*
the #FluPandemic hits.
