Found some terrific news today:





A bit of comforting news on avian flu was reported in the major medical journals this week, suggesting that while the virus may be more commonly spread to people from fowl than previously believed it is less likely to be lethal.





A team of researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine said that contact with sick or dead birds may result in a large number of people infected with a mild form the virus. If these researchers are correct in their conclusion, more people would be sick from bird flu but predictions about widespread deaths could be off the mark.

It's about time we get some good news on this!

Cayoo,

This would be very good news. Even though the great fear is a mutation that leads to sustained human-to-human and extremely deadly, there is as much of a chance that the mutation could work in our favor and the strain become LESS deadly.

I hope this turns out to be the case!
