Canada's response to H1N1 effective

An article from UPI, excerpt :

" OTTAWA, Dec. 29 : Canadian health officials say their actions during the H1N1 pandemic were effective but communications were a challenge among jurisdictions and time zones.

The report by the Public Health Agency of Canada and Health Canada on the lessons learned during the H1N1 pandemic in 2009 concluded strengths can be identified in all nine areas of pandemic readiness and response capacity.

The National Microbiology Laboratory in Canada was called on for laboratory assistance and five public health agency scientists helped with testing in Mexico -- where the influenza strain was first identified -- during the course of six weeks."
