Bird flu not a major human threat yet–scientists

According to Reuters it’s not serious yet, but I remember reading a book a few weeks ago on this very subject, with disasterous consequences. *shudder*

“If a person contracts both human flu and bird flu during this peak flu season, that may result in the two sharing their genetic information and emerging into a new strain with the ability to jump very efficiently from human to human.
“If that happens, it will be an emergence of a pandemic, something we don’t want to see,” Chan told Reuters.
