- In order to master time, slow down


With ever-present news fed by the media, there is a continuous flow of information which gives us hardly any time to step back in order to be able to assess the scope of information with sufficient depth. Since its creation, the Epidemiological News Journal has aimed at deliberately slowing down this increasingly rapid flow.

The Journal wisely offers a break from the news as a way to escape from the wild race we are urged to run by the Digital Age. 


The Journal is published monthly on a date that may vary depending on how relevant the information found on the Net is. Thus, if we consider that there is nothing of interest to share, the journal is not published.  The editorial board composed of four people who volunteer to provide you with updated information has always tried to follow this ethical guideline.  The Journal remains free of charge with no advertising or financial support. Until now. How long will that last? I am afraid I can’t say.


Mastering time is our greatest strength and we all do our best so that you may benefit from the most relevant information. The Journal is also able to keep track of our time and does not stray from the path of fast-track information. We offer you a quicker access to information with updates published on social networks like Facebook or Twiter , best adapted for this kind of information.

- Rumors about The Infectious Spread of Ebola -

I suggest you read this paper written by Jim Wilson, Director at the National Infectious Disease Forecast Center in Nevada, USA. He explains to us how not to be disturbed by the injunctions and unscientific messages about the Ebola outbreak. It is up to each of us, professionals in epidemiology, to be careful not to be influenced and get carried away. We have to step back in the face of the speed of the information circulating on the Internet which accentuates fantasies related to Ebola. Fantasies are an open door for the industry to speculate and sell products against the outbreak before it becomes an airport epidemic.
