This revised edition provides new illustrations and up-to-date information, including a look at recent outbreaks of avian flu, rapid diagnostic testing, universal flu vaccine, and the completion of sequencing more than 2,000 influenza virus genomes. The chapters include, Deadly World Traveler, Viral Replication, 'I've Got the Flu, What Can I Do?',Influenza - Nature's Frequent Flyer: Prevention, Dealing with Complications, and What May the Future Bring?
