Hi Tom,

  Most of the postings here are of the more "academic" variety, with
researchers asking questions or posting comments. If you want to get
information of a more "news flash" variety, may I suggest either the
ProMedMail website, or one of their mailing lists. It's probably more
what you're looking for, I suspect. (It's also a VERY active place, with
multiple postings daily regarding outbreaks of different sorts all over
the world).  Their website is:   and you can
sign up there for their various mailing lists as well, which will give
you the same data via email instead of the web format.
