The spirit moved me to google avian flu news and this is what I found. For what it’s worth, the moment human to human transmission hits eastern europe I’m doing that grocery shopping I talked about in another thread…

Human-transmissible bird flu found (Vietnam)
A Fujian-like bird flu virus was found in poultry in Vinh Long Province and northern Vietnam.
Tests done in two national and international laboratories, the Veterinary Institute and the National Center for Veterinary Diagnosis, confirmed the findings.
The name of the mutated virus, Fujian bird flu, is taken from the Chinese province where the new strain of the H5N1 bird flu virus was found in March 2005. The virus is transmissible from birds to humans.
Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Cao Duc Phat asked relevant agencies to strictly control the trading and transportation of poultry and poultry products across borders and in local markets to prevent the spread of this dangerous strain of the H5N1 bird flu virus.
