Dresden, Germany - Bird flu has returned to Germany, with the H5N1 influenza virus breaking out among farm ducks in the eastern state of Saxony, officials said Thursday. It was the first proven appearance of the disease this year in Germany. Officials were preparing to slaughter the whole flock of ducks at Goerlitz, near the Polish border.

I heard many years ago on c2c a scientist predicting viruses and bacteria would be the downfall of man. Captain Tripps will come around. Then none of us will have anything to worry about. Except for the perhaps one or two percent who may have immunity.

im pretty convinced that in good time the virus will mutate into a virus humans can pass to eachother.
if humans can catch it then humans will eventually pass it.
plus if you add all the medicines that we have tried to treat this virus, the cases where it has not worked eventually makes that disease more immune to that treatment.

Bird Flu....it comes and goes and I think will never disappear........I'm worried about an new Flu outbreak.....scientist are convinced it will come soon (read that in the paper).
I knew i'd see you here, My question is, has bird flu been in Germany before? It's seems each year a new country finds it. Is there a vacine yet? And out of curiosity what bacteria/virus concerns you the most?

Agree but in a pandemic is that not what we become. They may not have been able to get to a hospital, which isn't much different then getting there and recieving no help do to overflow. Although i agree the number would be lower. We may not perfectly prepared but at least a little.
