Since late in 2003 the number of people infected by the Bird Flu is now 130 while 67 have died. I find it scary that this disease is spreading across the world so quickly. The first human case of this disease was announced in China just a few days ago and it makes me wonder...who's next? China is the fifith country to announce deaths from the flu, and there is a rising suspicion that this may cause a human influenza pandemic. Which in the long run may result in as many as seven and a half million deaths. I guess maybe I'm weird, but I just want to know what the deal is? First we have Mad Cow Disease and now the Bird Flu. What's wrong with all the animals?
