In preparation for a novel influenza outbreak
Novel influenza emerged and came to spread efficiently fromperson to person as a result of the influenza virus (bird influenzavirus) being anomalously transmitted to a person, where it usuallyonly spreads among animals (and particularly birds), and undergoinga mutation within the body of that person or pig.Unlike with seasonal influenza, which becomes prevalent everyyear, most people do not have immunity to the novel influenza virus.Thus, it harbors the potential of becoming pandemic.
