WHO to send mission to Chinese bird flu province

With a small number of human deaths from Bird Flu, and a large number of out-breaks in poultry, and a plan to try and immunise huge numbers of birds China is in the spotlight, with some commentaries indicating that the immunisation if not done properly could spark the feared mutation that may spread from human to human.

"H5N1 has killed nearly 70 people in Asia since late 2003 – mainly in Vietnam and Thailand. But the real fear is that it will mutate and acquire the ability to pass from human to human, causing a global pandemic."
