Although no human cases have yet surfaced in North America, surely, with the rapid movement from Asia to Europe, it cannot be long in coming. There were many facts about this virus that I didn't know, just having read the CDC fact sheet http://www.cdc.gov/flu/avian/gen-info/facts.htm
Careful with birds!!!

I have to admit to being very cynical when I hear the media reporting health scares. I heard about this particular one a year ago and how many have died since then? 65 isn't it? That's hardly worth mentioning when compared other flu strains. Remember the fuss about SARS? That was going to wipe out the planet wasn't it? This news story feels like a similar piece of scarmongering sensationalist journalism. I feel we're much more at risk from MRSA.
