Author(s):
Abstract:
Bird flu has not reached the United States yet, but experts predict that the disease will eventually come here. How prepared is the state government for such an outbreak? Among the steps North Carolina has taken are development of a pandemic influenza response plan; creation of the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response; and setting up seven regional response teams for early detection and response.
