    At the moment I think the spreading virus just affects bird's mainly although it has been said that it could easily mutate to affect people more dramatically. The only place they have found the bird flu to infect people is in asia I think and that was only with people who were working closely with birds.

    Well it's not on any of the big news sites so I don't think you need to worry just yet!

    I heard it was in Romania yesterday, haven't heard anything about London. I hope it doesn't reach us or it could be another foot-and-mouth for the farmers.

    It is in Romania for quite few days (I think about a week now) and our authorities sent to UK some samples colected from the affected birds for further analysis. Maybe that's the news stevey heard. By the way, what specialists from Romania assumed, those from UK confirmed, it is H5N1 virus that killed some birds in Romania.

    We all hope that it will all be under control and this won't spread anymore...
