Two and a half years and back
It has been two and half years since I last updated this blog and I thought it about time to restart my reports on H5N1. H5N1 is not making big headlines as it once did, people are more concerned with the credit crunch just now. However, H5N1 has not gone away and it lurks in the shadows as threat that could strike anytime. Two and a half years later I am surprised that H5N1 has not become a pandemic yet; but H5N1 still continues to cause problems in Asia and the Middle East, there is no effective drugs and it appears impossible to eliminate. More than ever in a world suffering social and economic hardship from the credit crunch, an H5N1 pandemic could prove to be a nightmare.
