No there's a lot of evidence that the virus originated from an avian reservoir in the Guandong province in China where animals in poultry markets have beenfound to be infected with a parental virus. There is no evidence whatsoever that this virus is man-made.

Yeah agree - it's more that the virus originated from there, (maybe evolved too) but definitely not man-made.

Man can be the culprit in a lot of disasters and can be capable of doing a lot of ecological damage, but current evidence suggests that the H5N1 virus isn't one of them.
