Hey Old Man...have you seen this yet? It seems to have hit Europes largest turkey farm...has the BBC been covering this?

https://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england...olk/6327193.stm

the key sentences are in the 3rd article which CLAIM? that the virus has been "contained" and poses no threat to the population...also, the virus still seems to be having trouble being passed from human to human..which as most viruologists feel is only a matter of time...

ANYONE STILL THINK ITS MEDIA HYPE???

Guess I won't eat any English turkey. The turkeys must have gotten from wild birds. That means wild birds in the area are infected? If this is right, how could they possibly have it contained? I mean, it didn't just show up in the turkeys by itself.
Quarantine the farm and they have established a "perimeter" around the farm in order to "attempt" to keep the animals from any contact with the bird population. Hopefully this is an inital outbreak and not a secondary one, so they may get it under control...there is still no danger to the public, unless you handle the infected birds directly, and well-cooked meat is also ok...its the human to human transmissions that are worrisome and as of yet , it has not been able to cross that particular barrier......YET......

Whyis it that so many scientist believe that it will mutate to a human to human virus? Is there some history they have seen? A week spot on it's portiens? What is it they know?
because it possesses a lot of the same characteristics as many pandemic outbreaks in our past...

it usually requires a 3rd carrier, generally swine (pig) which then can transmit to humans to mutate further with the existing flu viruses...more to come..dont have time right now...i posted at length here about a year ago the process...

I supose there is enought Tamiflu for the police, politicians, doctors and nursed - but not for us common folk eh? sounds like a TV show

here is a great informational source from the CDC on the avian flu and its transmissability from animals to humans...

p.s - in case anyone is interested, click on the link, scroll down to the U.S. map and click on your respective state to see what, if any, precautions are being taken in case of an outbreak....

Saw this on the news yesterday - quite amazing how it took them by surprise yet DEFRA had always said it was going to happen.

The news seems to be dominated by it, which is to be expected. I wouldn't want shares in Bernard Mathews right now. "Bootiful!" - yeah right!

I feel sorry for the turkeys.

The thing is as I recall that Tamiflu isn't 100% effective and may not be effective at all on some strains which is why they aren't stockpiling for everyone - that and the fact that its makers can name their price. But yes, I reckon it would go to the emergency services and armed forces first.

The time is near.
