What did the 2009 swine-origin H1N1 outbreak teach us about how to prepare for future pandemics? This program addresses the issue by traveling to viral hot spots around the world and interviewing high-ranking disease-prevention experts. Viewers learn about the basics of influenza microbiology, the factors that distinguish swine-origin H1N1 from a seasonal virus, its mechanisms for spreading, its possible mutations, and its potential global impact. Tools used to fight it, including proper hygiene, quarantines, vaccines, and antivirals, are also discussed. Experts include Dr. Sylvie Briand of the World Health Organization, Dr. M. L. Gougeon of the Pasteur Institute, and Dr. Jean-Paul Gonzalez of the French-administered Institute for Research Development.
