Outbreak Investigation: Uncovering the Source, Spread and Severity of SARS
“Everybody gets it wrong at the beginning of an outbreak. What matters is how quickly you recover.”
Dr. Michael Ryan, World Health Organization
Multnomah County Health Department epidemiologist Amy Sullivan, Ph.D., will take you on a tour of the SARS outbreak investigation in Hong Kong to illustrate the fundamental tools used in outbreak exploration. Learn what was investigated when and how, and what was learned. Connections will be made to the research of the first suspect case of H1N1 (swine flu) in Multnomah County.
