Arian Bird Flu – How serious do you think this threat of a pandemic is?

My boss' brother is freaking out about it and is certain that it will become a pandemic. There was a confirmed outbreak in birds just south of Moscow in Russia. I'm just wonder what everyone else thinks about it.

I am worried! I am worried about my kids before myself, of course. I hope if it cant be erraticated that it just sticks to birds and does not transmit human to human!!

Pretty scary! I'm with you. Hope it is centered on birds only and doesn't transmit itself onto humans!

i think we are in store for a pandemic- whether it is this flu or not- we are certainly over due- the last major flu pandemic was what, 1918?

I think it's really going to be kids & old people that will be affected, and those in ill health. It's going to be a major problem.

I am a pharmaceutical sales rep and I am getting at least 7 calls a day from physicians who are requesting Tamiflu samples. I work for the company who manufactures it and they set up special operations just for this year!!!!!

I am quite nervous about it- I am asthmatic and even though I have not had to be hospitalized for two years I still stress about it. I also worry about my ILs and my folks and my nana since they are older. This is scary to me- I am trying not to think about it.
