LONDON, Oct. 7 (UPI) — A new strain of the bird flu virus spreading around the world is more infectious to humans, a study lead by a U.S. researcher has found.

Led by Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the new study found the H5N1 virus has apparently mutated into a new strain that increases the risk of a human pandemic due to its increased level of communicability, The Independent said Saturday.

Scary stuff..

    I read some where about the levels of a viral outbreak that became pandemic here in America. I felt like taking a shower after I read the part about the doctors and the nurses fleeing the hospitals. Too many sick and dying people to bury the ones who have already passed. I hope we are prepared for it, if this stuff every makes it over here.
