H1N1 myopia not uniquely American
I've blogged before about the H1N1 frenzy in US hospitals. Today I was accompanied on Infectious Diseases Consultation Service rounds by the Chief of Infectious Diseases at one of India's largest hospitals. He was lamenting the fact that such a large proportion of his time recently has been spent on H1N1 planning. And he brought it all into perspective when he said "I'm more worried about the 30 patients with cholera in my Emergency Department."
