WHO ‘deeply concerned’ by mutant bird flu | The Raw Story

The World Health Organization (WHO) said it was “deeply concerned” about research into whether the H5N1 flu virus could be made more transmissible between humans after mutant strains were produced in labs.  Two separate research teams — one in the Netherlands and the other in the United States — have found ways to alter the H5N1 avian influenza so it could pass easily between mammals… Scientists fear H5N1 will mutate into a form readily transmissible between humans, with the potential to cause millions of deaths.  go here Bird flu | The Raw Story.
