Today's Topic

When Chinese public health officials announced last month that people were sick and dying from a bird flu virus never before seen in humans, researchers immediately began hunting for answers to a deluge of pressing questions. How did the humans become infected? How deadly was the bug? Had it spread to people outside of China? Would anti-influenza drugs work? And how long would it take to make a vaccine?

Join us at a special time, 10 a.m. EDT, on Thursday, 2 May, on this page for a live video chat when we discuss H7N9 with experts. They’ll tackle the questions above and take yours. Be sure to leave your queries in the comment box below.
