As deadly as swine flu has been to the human population, it won’t be

“We now have the conditions for newly emerging infectious diseases to pop up constantly,”
King is a former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National

He’ll speak from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday at the Wes Watkins Center at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater.
