    Ungchusak and Dowell: No evidence of efficient person-to-person transmission has yet been reported.

    Gregory Hartl: likely transmitted from human to human

    Likely and actually are not even close.

    Thanks for the WHO para.

    Avian Flu has been around since the 1950s!!

    Strange how Avian Flu  just becomes a likely and probable threat at the exact same time when Rumsfeld happens to be holding stock in the company making the vaccine?

    Strange how Avian Flu  just becomes a likely and probable threat just after Hussein became a likely and probable threat after 9/11?

    Yawn!

    •  You're terminally stupid (0+ / 0-)

      probably literally, given what you're saying about H5N1.

        Oh, employing GOP tactics, i.e., attack the messenger instead of destroying the `oh-so-stupid' message while yelling the sky is falling?

        What have I posted that is stupid?

        Point it out.

        It should be so easy for one of your level of intelligence....

        FACT: The WHO has not raised the alert level. It has no plans to do so.

        FACT: The WHO has not seen evidence from Indonesia that the disease is passing easily from human to human.

        FACT: The WHO considered convening a meeting of experts to debate whether to raise the alert level. However, it decided that the current situation did not merit that step.

        FACT: The WHO  indicated there had been no significant mutations in the virus.
