Bird Flu - H5 strain found in Suffolk

I'll not bore everyone again with my fears over bird flu, but the H5 strain has been found at a farm in Suffolk. it is not yet clear if it is the H5N1 strain that has been so lethal in the far east.

Needless to say, anyone who read my previous posts on bird fluw will be ware than when this does mutate in to a pandemic virus that can be spread to human, experts are warninf that up to 10% of the UK population will die from it.

There are those who mock the chances of this happening, but you have to ask, why are the government buting 15 million doses of tamiflu if there is no threat ?

Find out more about bird flu in Suffolk on the Defra website HERE and the BBC has a report HERE.
