People have been catching this in Asia for a while.

It's the passing between mammals and, more importantly, humans that is the big worry. That hasn't happened yet afaik.

You're right, it first has to mix with a human flu virus, i.e. someone with normal flu has to catch bird flu as well...

It's not quite as simple as that....the virus has to mutate.

It's in Germany too. Make sure the Abe's don't catch the bug.

It would crash their system and cause their performance to be very low.

And that is not good.

Hmm, so a cat ate a bird and caught bird flu 8O

Tigers caught bird flu after eating infected chickens.


Shit you know what this means!? I'm just going to have to stop eating cats!
