I wont be worried really, until it mutates and becomes capable of transferring between humans.

It can pass from human to human, but humans usually get it when they're around poultry a lot, like farmers.

Fact is the actual threat is minimal, and the media likes to play it up like it's the plague or something.

No, I'm not afraid. Okay, I'm about as afraid of it as I am of terrorists. Afraid enough for me to mock people who are afraid. Which is clearly none at all.

Oh, I didn't realize it could.

I'm not really afraid anyway though.

This is not the same thing but here in Canada we have Mesquitos that have a disease and if they bite you, you have a bir risk to die, about 20 people in Canada died from it so far, and we have over 1000(not quite sure of the exact number) of birds died as well.


I'm probably not going to worry until there's actually an outbreak. I'm currently under the impression the media is pointlessly drawing attention to the "bird flu epidemic". When it first appeared, I heard the B. Flu was hardly contagious. Over the past few months, small talk about the illness became rumors of a potential disaster.

I dont see a problem, people just blow shit way out of proportion like AM was saying.

Sensationalizing some minor threat is a good tactic when trying to divert people's attention for more important matters. It's literally a cover story, because it covers other stories that certain people want ignored.

I don't think anything major's going to happen. just a little over-hyped
