While I was at the drs today, he gave me a pamphlet on bird flu. He told me he is giving it to all of his patients, this made me a little nervous because when we started hospice last month for my father in law, the hospice nurse gave me something else about bird flu. At any rate, they both recommended this web site and I thought I would pass it along if anyone is interested.
The most reliable source of information on this disease is found here:
The World Health Organization
This seems to creep up every few years and sometimes people panic; however the WHO lists the current risk at level 3 with level 6 being a full blown pandemic. I believe it's been at level 3 for at least the past 2 years without any change.
Hope that helps.
