Example text

There are many different sources of outbreak information on the Internet -- national, regional, international and disease-specifIc -- with reports varying in timeliness from same day to several months out of date. A major advance has been in mining newsmedia websites for reports of current outbreaks. Access to outbreak reports ranges from restricted, in the case of some WHO and government lists and sites, to free and public in the case of reports officially released on WHO and CDC websites, and unofficially disseminated by Internet newsgroups and networks such as ProMED-mail.

It is always revealing to compare the range and variety of conditions seen by small clinics compared with large clinics, similarly small laboratories with large, to realise the difference, to quote Sherlock Holmes, between what is seen and what is observed. And recorded. We stand on soft and shifting sands. b. Animal movement systems: Knowing a disease is present and approximate incidence is one aspect, knowing where it can be taken is another important epidemiological dimension. The American Animal Health Association recognizing a long overdue need initiated an holistic programme for monitoring livestock movements.

Lists of Internet addresses for a sample of such bulletins are given in Tables 1-4. Unofficial sources are the many independent public discussion lists and newsgroups on specific diseases, and the media, both of which often quote official sources but sometimes get their facts wrong. 1 INTERNATIONAL WHO publishes the Weekly Epidemiological Record (WER), both on paper and on the Internet, plus a Bulletin on the Internet that may appear more frequently, depending on the urgency. WHO's Department of Communicable Disease Surveillance and Response (CSR) sends out a weekly Outbreak Verification List of current outbreaks, which is distributed to a limited number of public health professionals worldwide in order to improve common awareness on reports and rumours of outbreaks which may have international implications.
