Re: Bird Flu

Ah yes, but some of us can hunker down to keep catching it as long as the internet functions.* Reverse quarintine.

Consider the likely exposure rate in urban communities and households with many occupants.* Can you imagine the carniage in the developing world?

From what I have read, H5N1 has been difficult to produce vaccine for, and of the stuff that they have managed to produce, the effectiveness is questionable.

People won't put up with that today.
I wonder if these measures will once again become necessary once the drug resistant strains that have been brewing inside prisons make their way into the general population.

Re: Bird Flu

Bird flu might also significantly affect the millions who are infected with HIV and thus have impaired immune systems. In some African countries, over half the population young adult population is HIV positive.

Africa is a good place to look at the effect of pandemics because you have some villages where there are more orphans than adults.....
