Influenza Quotations

The unique nature about the influenza virus is its great potential for changes, for mutation.
Margaret Chan

When there is an influenza threat, drop everything and focus on risks from influenza pandemics. When SARS spreads, focus on unknown respiratory diseases. This approach helps to quell public concern, but it's a hugely inefficient way to deal with future risks.
Nathan Wolfe

Pandemic influenza is by nature an international issue; it requires an international solution.
Margaret Chan

Influenza pandemics must be taken seriously, precisely because of their capacity to spread rapidly to every country in the world.
Margaret Chan

We know there are certain types of viruses that are nasty - influenza, for instance, is an area that is not a blindside. But a lot of viruses have come out of nowhere, like H.I.V., or to a certain extent SARS. Because we know we have the potential to be blindsided, we really have to investigate the unknowns.
Nathan Wolfe
