A disturbing flu development

Researchers are reporting that the H5N1 virus, commonly known as "avian influenza" or "bird flu" has mutated into a form that is closer to a human flu virus than ever before.

This might be a good time to ensure you have your preparedness act together. Currently, this virus has about a 60% death rate in humans. If a pandemic occurs, that would like go down to some extent, but do you really want to be out and about among the hacking and coughing populace?
