The article presents a discussion on the impact of swine flu (H1N1) on the travel industry. John Edmunds, professor of infectious disease modelling at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, England, says that it is as transmissible as previous strains of influenza pandemics but not as deadlier as them. However, advising against travel would result in social and economic disruption, instead of helping in controlling the disease.
