Where Did Flu Viruses Come From?

Posted by Nyanko on 11:59 PM in
I'm a worker of a munincipal Public Health Center.One of my job is to promote human health and to investigate infectious diseases.
Now patients of novel influenza have been confirmed here in Japan.
2days ago, patients were only 10 students.But now, the number of patients got rised to 135, mainly 10 - 20 years old students.
They have never been to oversee trip. They have got diseases in Japan, by person to person infection.
I wonder where did the first viruses come from? When? How?

Today we had a lot of phone calls...some are afraid that if their children could catch flu, some complain that masks were all sold out at drug stores, some complain that the government officials don't do appropriate work...
It's a kind of "festivals", we were somehow exciting, even though we've been overworking for these couples of days...

Fortunately, the novel flu seems to be not so strong. Patients are getting well now.I hope these "festivals" would finish as soon as possible, and we could return to routine works as before.
