Originally posted by stevey has anyone else heard this? it was on the radio this morning that a number of people in the london area were found be infected with the bird flu virus, havent found any news links on this yet
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.
I heard it was in Romania yesterday, haven't heard anything about London.
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...
