H1N1 flu found in birds. -- (The Straits Times)

 

'The current H1N1 virus strain is a mixture of human, pig and bird genes and has proved to be very contagious, but no more deadly than common seasonal flu viruses,....it could theoretically become more dangerous if it adds virulence by combining with H5N1, commonly known as avian flu, which is far more deadly but harder to pass along among humans.'....'In South-east Asia, where there is a lot of the (avian flu) virus circulating in poultry, the introduction of H1N1 in these populations would be of a greater concern.'
