This article may be of interest to some of you.

A team of international researchers have just published their results in Nature. Their study/studies show that the number of malaria cases, globally, is much higher than previously reported by the World Health Organization. This new study found that WHO's estimates were off by (up to) 50%.

Our thoughts exactly...

Possibly Dr. Who (or Ramana)?

But which regeneration of Dr Who?

Could this also mean that WHO Bird Flu may not be accurate?

That thought crossed my mind too. I am searching the web to see if there are any studies that contradict WHOs flu reports. Will post if I find anything.

Nothing I have found shows any dispute over WHO's influenza estimates. Though, with this new wrinkle in their malaria reporting, I'm sure some group will be looking into it.

Good idea - Time Masters can be very tricky. I'll look into that after I feed the zoo. The natives are getting restless again.
