Bird Flu gone?

Sadly, this killer virus is still with us. The latest news on avian flu is that is could mutate at any time into a human transmissible form. However, we are creating a vaccine that should offer some protection. Already, worldwide the bird virus has killed over 250 million chickens and over 250 people. Of the people it infects there is an over 50% mortality rate. With the bird flu vaccine this should drop to less than 5%.
