Editorial

The last months have been a time of increased emergency activities - the list of co-alerts at the end of this issue is therefore unusually long. And alerts were necessary in cases ranging from Colombia, over Germany and Finland to Turkey (see main article on the right). These developments show the need for an effective international alert system, and we would like to encourage everyone to subscribe to our co-alert email list, and to take part in the alert system.
