The Journal ‘Nature’ has a fascinating and terrifying timeline for a possible Avian Flu pandemic. The H5N1 virus is about as serious a threat to a mass die-off as this planet has seen in many years. Hard to believe that 40 million died from the Spanish flu (H1N1) in 1918 and that scientists are more worried about H5N1. With the increased population on the planet, this could be a real mess.Check out the latest entries on the timeline. Is this thing about to break wide open?
I need to get an academic subscription to ‘Nature’ for home. Expensive, but really excellent content.
