From the Yahoo article :
Egypt's location on major bird migration routes and the widespread practice of keeping domestic fowl near living quarters have led to it being

That says alot. The #1 concern is if this, or any other disease with a high mortality rate of healthy people between 8-50, becomes airborne. If it
is still through such a close contact, then we are safe. These people have been around others and it has not spread human to human. Until the time
where it is spread like the regular flu between humans, the contraction method is if you sleep with your chickens, turkeys, ducks and other waterfowl.
