I think avian flu is going to become a pandemic and the lucky ones won't get avian flu. What I'm worried about is that the avian flu will mutate and will be transmitted by humam to human.

as far as I know, if the next mutation occur, then, H5Na will get mutated into H5N2...
Here's the profile:
H5 = responsible for resulting deadly respiratory dissease
N2 = responsible for a very quick widespread...

and by the way, there's a gossip in my country that avian flu H5N1 have mutated via antigenic driff and can be transmitted human to human...oww...big problem guys...:sad:

that is the MOST pesimistic comment about bird flu that has ever been written in the history of mankind...

in my country, it is said that chicken meat and eggs are safe to be eaten if there are properly cooked.
as for wild birds, i dont think i have heard of any report of infected live bird

people on the news keep saying that it won't mutate and that we're not in trouble of dying but a CAT has died and they still say that its not going to mutate but I think it has already so thats is complete crap
