Bird flu chronology

Scientists predict that, H5N1, the bird-flu virus strain, will mutate and gain the ability to spread easily among humans.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, PCRM, stated that while chickens, ducks and geese are raised in confined and overcrowded conditions, the $1.9 billion dollars pledged by the US and other nations to stop the bird-flu, is not going to prove effective. The PCRM is urging people to stop consuming chicken products, which not only will help stop the spread of the bird-flu but will make their diet a healthier one by eating more plan-based foods (www.pcrm.org/news/commentary060123.html).

And while scientists are awaiting the imminent spread of the bird flu into the western world, one more victim was confirmed in Indonesia last Wednesday, being the 44th fatal case in that country.
