In April 2009, ECDC produced an initial assessment of the public health risk to Europe from the newly emerging strain of influenza. This risk assessment has been continually updated as the situation has evolved and more evidence becomes available. It takes into account questions and suggestions from a variety of sources including the European Commission, EU Member States and the World Health Organization.
The risk assessments are strictly evidence-based. Surveillance data, analyses and published information that have been subject to a peer-review process are preferred sources.
