Topic discussion

Read the paper “Routes of influenza transmission” by Killingley and Nguyen-Van-Tam (2013), which you can get here.

The paper describes modes of transmission for influenza. Pick another pathogen and compare and contrast what is known about similarities and differences in transmission between flu and the pathogen you pick. Also briefly discuss implications for control.
