H5N1 The Next Pandemic?


Uploaded on May 10, 2011

For more than a decade a strain of avian influenza that first appeared in Southeast Asia has threatened to ignite a deadly pandemic. The H5N1 variant has nearly all the features of a virus capable of killing tens of millions of people, but it has not yet acquired a single key trait: the ability to spread efficiently from person to person. Experts say when that day comes a deadly pandemic will begin.

Organizers of the third annual International Symposium on Agroterrorism commissioned Nusura to shoot and produce the film, “H5N1 — The Next Pandemic?” to provide background on the topic and lay the groundwork for the week’s presentations and related panel discussions.

Nusura traveled to northern Vietnam – the place where H5N1 has killed more people than almost anywhere else in the world – to learn what worked and what didn’t and to share these lessons learned with the global community through the symposium.
