World Crisis scenarios for the 21st century – Bird Flu (H5N1) and other pandemic Virus concerns – (update 2)

The potentially fatal animal to human strain of H5N1 has surfaced in the UK on a poultry farm. Although the H5N1 is NOT the pandemic human to human mutated strain that the World Health Organization and other scientific organizations are forecasting as a worldwide pandemic. However the animal to human H5N1 (Bird Flu) is still a killer of humans claiming 200 lives worldwide.

“A 3-kilometer (2-mile) protection zone and a 10-kilometer surveillance zone are being set up around the infected farm, Defra said. A wider restricted zone covers the whole county of Suffolk and most of neighboring Norfolk. Within the zones, the movement of poultry will be limited and all birds must be housed or isolated from contact with wild fowl, the agency said.” Bloomberg
