I have a host of collected links and one-liner posts that I hoped I’d get to this week, but just didn’t have the time for. So, rather than let them collect dust any longer, I’ll put a number of “greatest hits” in microbiology and public health from the past week or so after the fold:
John McCain isn’t sure if condoms help to prevent HIV transmission. Mike and Josh take him down.
The proposed childrens’ health study may receive funding after all.
A new review highlights gaps in our knowledge of airborne influenza transmission. Oh, and if we should experience a pandemic, economic effects could be severe enough so as to trigger a recession.
And, this week’s medical blogging roundup, Grand Rounds, can be found at Blog, MD.
Next week will also be busy; the regular stuff plus another talk in the community (gave one of those this week too, in addition to the weekend symposium), but I’ll try to get in that write-up of said symposium, and a few other infectious disease topics as well…
