Jakarta: Avian Flu Virus 'All Over City'
Fear is spreading. So is the bird flu.
In Jakarta, the Indonesian capital, officials admit that "it's very serious. Based on our research, the virus has spread all over the dity."
In Tien Giang province, a man was taken to the hospital when saying he had a high fever, the AP reports. He was then taken to isolation. However, he said he needed to get some personal belongings back at his home.
He left the hospital and never returned. Before leaving hospital care, he informed the staff that he had become ill after he had slaughtered his bird flu sick poultry.
More than millions of birds have been killed in Indonesia due to the infection.

If and when this "pandemic" arrive, I think the best bet is to stay home. Hopefully, our governments/utilities will have essential services online and available.

I have a few friends that live in Jakarta, and they swear that our media is overhyping the entire outbreak...to the point that in Indonesia itself, they don't consider it an outbreak at all.

Just do everything you can in your power- lots of hand washing, Zycam and hot tea with honey and the all powerful chicken soup.
Please take care, my friends.
