Title Influenza A (H1N1) infections among healthcare workers: A cause for cautious optimism
Bibliographic information Sep. 2009, Vol.66, No.9, p.569-570. 13 ref.
Abstract This editorial argues that the relatively low number of confirmed cases of influenza A (H1N1) among healthcare workers is largely due to improved precautions and preparedness introduced since the avian influenza pandemic threat several years earlier, particularly in countries of South-East Asia.
