The bird flu (known as H5N1) has been in the news a lot, and recently a case of human-to-human transmission was confirmed in China. A father caught it from his son, and unfortunately the son passed away. The father took antivirals and participated in an H5N1 vaccine trial and luckily has survived.
Flu experts worry that this human-to-human transmission may cause the virus to mutate, sparking a pandemic which could kill millions worldwide. That worries me, too.
So what about you . . .
