Default Samatra --- Bird flu

Looks like 6 people have died from bird flu there, What makes this different is that they found NO birds in area with Bird flu. Which means that it MAY_HAVE_BEEN Human to human transfer.
This is a good thing For the US. WHO (world health organization) members are in the area and I would guess that a blood sample is on its way right now to the US to make vacsiene.
As long as it stays in that part of the world for 2-3 weeks we in the US will be fine,

The problem with the world being so "small" is that someone can be infected with that flu (not know it), jump on a plane, and be anywhere in the world in a matter of hours. Kinda scary!
