150 people have died from this which if you look at actual numbers compared to population it is not that many, also it is appearing for contact it is those that have extreme close contact with birds that may contract this....

What has to be recognised that this is probably going to be catastrophic for poultry sales....

Their always saying though, that theres only a small chance for strains of the virus to pass onto humans, or actually be possible to pass onto humans.

At least for now, this one doesn't seem to be capable of doing that, though we all know how fast viruses, etc change to suit the environment.
