A(H1N1) 2009 et incertitudes: leçons d'une pandémie

Iten, Anne
Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2010, vol. 6, no. 243, p. 704-707
Abstract During a pandemic, public health specialists base their recommendations on previous data and more or less complex epidemiological models. By contrast, a virus replicates according to its own rules and biological properties that do not consider epidemiological models. Recent experience with influenza virus A (HINI) 2009 well demonstrates that public health models have a limited ability to predict the type and the pattern of a future pandemic. It is rather the virus that dictates the rules.
