Bird Flu Update

Bird Flu Update

In the first hour, Dr. Marc Siegel(1) provided a bird flu update. According to Siegel, government health officials and the media have tended to present worst case scenarios regarding avian influenza, instilling fear of the disease in the general population. The reality is that less than 200 human deaths over the past nine years are credited to bird flu, he explained. Still, Siegel believes we need to get control over the H5N1 flu strain in birds, which may be only "several mutations away from being able to pass easily from human to human," he warned.
