H5N1 in Haiphong Vietnam: Operation Pocket Money

Recombinomics Commentary
March 31, 2005

H5N1 infected an entire family of five in Haiphong, signaling a major change in H5N1 evolution.  H5N1 had achieved efficient transmission to humans. 

The WHO response was a press release stating that there was no evidence of a human pandemic. This is published almost hourly, indicating the WHO wasn't impressed with the major move by H5N1.

Each time I see that headline, I think of Operation Pocket Money, which has some strong analogies to the current situation in Haiphong. 

Unfortunately, the follow-up Operation End Sweep may have an appropriate name, but a very different outcome.
