Quotes

"As far as the infectious nature of the disease, it's not any more contagious than hepatitis," said Levy. "This is something that ultimately is a real challenge for the country, but our job is to keep a balance between what's hyperbole and doing what's necessary to make sure we're prepared."
...said, noting the importance of having a common plan with responders across the county despite the low risk that the virus could spread to the area. "We've been in these situations before with West Nile and anthrax, and we're treating it the same -- with proper equipment and procedures in place and educating responders and everybody around."
Discussing why the U S government has put the breaks on this type of science, National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins said: "NIH has funded such studies because they help define the fundamental nature of human-pathogen interactions, enable the assessment of the pandemic potential of emerging infectious agents, and inform public health and preparedness efforts. These studies, however, also entail biosafety and biosecurity risks, which need to be understood better."
...They didn’t know. "But," he went on, "by the time I came in the next day there was a state of emergency: masks on faces, people dying in hospitals in Mexico City. My editor said, do you think you should get down there? I said to my editor, it's the flu, it’ll get here faster than I get there. Kids at St. Francis in Queens had been to Cancun, and brought it back. What are you gonna do, close the East River?”"
