Has anyone notised how similar this whole h5n1 'bird flu' hysteria is reminiscent of "The Stand" by Stephen King? ...Just throwing that out
At any rate.
Apparently the human-bird transmission is wholly unlikely (as has been speculated). However, the threat may be greater in a more round-about way. The
particular strain of 'bird flu' we are looking at is easily transmitted to pigs (swine flu). It is this 'swine flu' that is much more
transmissable to humans. (I have read speculation that the 1918 strain was possibly passed through this method).
