Rising Risk

More than 400 human cases of H7N9 bird flu have been confirmed in China since last October, the biggest and deadliest outbreak of the virus in human history.
 
The likelihood of H7N9 reaching the US remains low. Still, experts say the US is woefully unprepared for a dangerous pandemic. And President Trump’s approach to health priorities and matters of global consequence could put US health security at even greater risk, argues Vox’s Julia Belluz. He’s proposed cutting the CDC’s budget, failed to name a new director and stressed American isolationism, which could hamper cooperation during a pandemic.
