Bird Flu Interview Extras

Here are a couple of clips from my interview with John Weaver from the Food and Agriculture Organization.

In this clip, he tells me what makes it particularly difficult to contain the virus in Indonesia.

In this clip, I’d asked if culling is an effective strategy for containing the disease in Indonesia.

Click here to listen to a clip from Georg Petersen, the World Health Organization's representative in Indonesia. I had asked him first if Indonesia's political environment makes it a more likely candidate to spawn a pandemic strain, and then asked if the recent decentralization of power from Jakarta to the provincial govenment made it harder to contain the disease.
