“Germany’s federal agency for infectious diseases said on Tuesday there were signs the H1N1 swine flu virus had started to mutate and warned it could spread in the coming months in a more aggressive form…
WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan said recently the virus is currently “pretty stable,” but warned it could still change into a more deadly form, perhaps mixing with the H5N1 bird flu virus circulating widely in poultry.”
Oh, man. If swine flu and bird flu mix into a virus easily spread among people, that would really, really suck. But, I think a lot people are just saying things to be alarmists. I’m not ashamed to admit I am one of them.
Current stats: 5,5867 confirmed cases world-wide, and 238 deaths.
