Between a virus and a hard place

An editorial in Nature is urging scientists to serve as credible voices to inform their communities of the risks and uncertainties surrounding H1N1 (aka swine flu).

"Damned if you do, damned if you don't. The emergence of a new, swine-flu-related H1N1 strain of influenza in people in North America, with sporadic cases elsewhere in the world, has left the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia, and the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva in an unenviable position."
