how many other parents of students will hear that and their children will not be tested for H1N1 thus skewing the number of infected people even more- and that is just one of the 3 schools that have closed -
An Imperial College London recreation of the nose's environment found that at 32 degrees Celsius, avian flu viruses lose function and cannot spread.
It is likely that the viruses have adapted to suit the warmer 40 degree environments in the guts of birds.
It is certainly part of the explanation of why avian viruses, such as H5N1, fail to transmit readily to humans
