Nonpharmaceutical interventions during an influenza pandemic

A paper in JAMA looks at this in relation to the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic, looking whether variation in mortality in certain US cities was related to the implementation of school closure, bans on public gatherings, that sort of thing.

Reference to article:

Markel H, Lipman HB, Navarro A, Sloan A, Michalsen JR, Stern AM, Cetron MS. Nonpharmaceutical Interventions Implemented by US Cities During the 1918-1919 Influenza Pandemic JAMA 2007 298: 644-654

And readers from the University of Leicester can access it (with specific password) here.
