Britian: 13th EU Country With Presence of Bird Flu

Post placeholder image

Bird Flu was discovered on British soil last week and the media along with some politicians are doing everything they can to feed the hysteria. Personally, I think it’s somewhat irresponsible. I’m not saying the government shouldn’t plan behind the scene to curtail a potential epidemic, but throwing out numbers like 100,000 students potentially dead when no human in this country has yet to be infected with the H5N1 virus is just plain alarmist and not very helpful to general population. Particularly since the virus does not transfer easily from birds to human. In fact, you need close contact with the infected birds, which explains why despite the spread across continents, only 190 people in the world so far have been infected. SO thank God for that.
