Really? I’d swear I heard something on the news just the other day saying there were no known human-to-human transmissions. And that the nature of the virus made it highly unlikely. Mebbe I misheard. Thanks for the correction.
Yes, there has been at least one case of human-human transmission. it died out soon, due to a poor adaptation. The problem is that the practices in that region of asia make it a PERFECT spot for this virus to mutate at its leisure.
There is an article about the Avian Flu in the current National Geographic magazine. I haven’t had a chance to start reading it yet, but looking at photo captions in it has indicated a prime means in Asia of transmission to humans has simply been eating the meat of infected chickens.
Yano i’m kinda concerned by this.
Not that i’m gonna get it but that its just a scam by the Tyson folks who have been trying to get a monopoly on the chicken industry for years now.
Yeah I know its just a rumor but could there be a better way than to scare the hell out of a few folks until Washington hears of the "epidemic " and forces small producers out of buisness?
