BANGKOK—60 million lives could be saved — most of them in low- and middle-income countries — by taking effective measures to combat any future pandemic of influenza. Scientists from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, based in Bangkok, are conducting wide-ranging research to determine which measures are optimal for preventing death and mitigating the effects of any future global outbreak of influenza. Dr Tom Drake and Professor Richard Coker discuss anti-‘flu measures as they affect South East Asia: considered to be in the front line of any future battle against the disease.
