    Could this be the new bird flu? It's already spread to other countries outside China.

  • I don't think bird flu effect was as serious as the Asian flu of the 50s

    I actually caught that and was bed ridden for nearly a week with doctor visiting every day, they did in those days

    It could be. Let's hope spring arrives before it can take hold in the rest of the world, but I guess that only puts it off until next winter.


    Hopefully, Asian countries will start managing their animals better as a result of all this, to avoid these infections from starting in the first place. It's bad hygene that causes these diseases - they need to learn the lesson before anything worse is unleashed in the future.

    Let's hope this one isn't serious, Bryanluc.

    I agree their bad hygiene is the cause here, but lets worry about this virus first, before anything else.


    Hundreds of millions of Chinese are moving around as they celebrate the Chinese New Year spreading this everywhere. If it's already spread to other Asian countries, it can only be a matter of time before it spreads here.
