Gman, you know what is interesting to me is that you and I seem to be the only ones really following this. I have followed you on this subject within 3 different threads I think now.

You aren't the only ones following, I've been spending a good hour or so every day at my desk looking things up and reading through... for the most part I'm too disturbed by the idea my daughter would come down with anything to say much.
Other people I would get over, but she's only 2 and way too cute to get hurt.

Avian Flu Pandemic: Chinese Government's Answer "Make Villages Disappear!"
News Blackout in China and around the World
by Dr. Henry L. Niman
August 4, 2005
According to the Qinghai Bulletin Board Service (BBS), the state of emergency imposed on the farming community and its surroundings in the Northwestern Qinghai City / Town of Yushu was lifted on the night of 28th July.
When natives living further from the area made a trip to the farming community, they discovered that it had "vanished" together with 3 of its surrounding villages. Only some ruins, blocks from collapsed walls, remained. Apparently, the farms and villages had been flattened and there were signs that they had been razed.
It is believed that some inhabitants from those 3 villages were workers in the farm. Around 200 people were estimated to have inhabited or worked in those 3 villages and the farm. There whereabouts are, as yet, unknown.
News outside of China however, points toward a virulent strain of H5N1 linked to Qinghai Lake has killed ducks and geese in several areas of southern Siberia in Russia as well as the adjacent region in Kazakhstan. There are now reports of five suspected cases of H5N1 in Kazakhstan linked to infected geese, suggesting many similar cases would be possible in Qingahi and Xinjiang provinces in China, where there have been three outbreaks linked to migratory birds and all involved dead geese.
The news blackout in China as well as additional suspect cases in neighboring Sichuan province which may be spreading further south to Yunnan province has suggested that a raging H5N1 pandemic in China is being covered-up.
Remember the old commerical...Here's your brain on drugs? Just remember that eggs can contain the virus too.
