Never saw the programme and no I am not worried.

The whole bird flu thing (thankfully) has come to nothing here despite the best efforts of so many to put so much fear in to so many people.

I watched it, Horizon.

We should all be worried.

The World health organisation are so worried about this that they have stationed observation posts in South East Asia to pounce on any outbreaks and lock them down. South East Asia being the hopspot where this is likely to happen.

The facts are;

1, There have been isolated cases but we've been lucky

2, All it will take is for the virus to slightly mutate to become easily communicable within the human race.

3, The rest of the programme detailed what will happen if it odes.

4, Millions will die if it does.

However worrying is pointless, if it happens there is nothing that can be done. The production of vacines will take so long most of those who will die will be dead and a vaccine can only be produced one an outbreak has started.

I never doubted for a second that it could happen though mate. I just said I was not, and still am not worried about it.

Wouldnt worry about it mate - when the polar ice caps melt in the next few years the birds will all drown anyway and most of europe will be undersea.

Thats unless the volcano erupts in the canary islands causing a tsunami that will not only wipe out most of southern europe but also 40% of the east coast of the states.........

Or the gulf stream decides to finally shift back to front thus causing the next ice age for northern europe...

Or you worry for 6 months, and then get run over by a bus or abducted by little green men in space suits saying "nanu nanu"

Horizon used to be quality but this last couple of years it has got really dumed down. It's main role seems to be the telly equivalent of the Daily Mail i.e. scaring people.
I would worry more about religion and the nutters that it fuels than a few chickens with a temperature

It is well contained at the moment. It's just the fact that they don't know where it came from that is of concern.
