The bird flu stories are creeping back into the news because we are coming up on flu season and birds will begin to migrate again along the same paths
that were infected last year.
Although it's not a situation to promote panic, it is a real threat. Any flu has the potential to be a real threat. What I find interesting is that
while recreating the Spanish flu to determine it's reaction in the body they have determined that it sets off the body's response and sends it into
It has already been determined that the H5N1 will have the same effect.
Not to beat a dead horse because there are many many threads discussing the Avian Flu.
But it's still a virus to keep the eye on. Indonesia has been hard hit throughout the summer this year and the virus is mutating. There are more
cluster cases which gives ample opportunity for this virus to pick up the proteins needed for easier tranmission.
