  1. Thanks for leaving the A H1N1 articles free full text. Informations are very important when we have a risc of a serius epidemic disease.

  2. Your effort to disseminate information is really generous because it isa very useful tool for practicing physicians of the underdevelopped world too.
    It could help the reccomendation to humidfy the infected rooms where warm air leaves humidity in roofs: It would decrease the shrinking and dissication of expelled droplets and avoid inspissation of receptor protective mucus reducing the time of clearance of inhaled particles. (It is simple, cheap and could help)

  3. Dear Sir
    I wish to submit a correction to my previous commentary: I meant that humidity should be restored in every closed ambitus where air conditioning or calefaction produces dry air, i.e.: halls, cinemas, schools, homes, vehicles,etc. not only in the obviously “infected” but even in those where shedding of contaminated particles by pauci or asymptomatic carriers could occur.(1,2)
