No need for complacency

The UN held a special meeting in Rome today about the avian virus, H5N1.

"The real question is how are humans going to react to this in large numbers, if it gets transmitted from human-to-human. And yes, it would be a serious concern."

No panic, no paranoia, no complacency. "Serious concern" calls for educated consideration on the potential of this virus so we can best learn how to protect ourselves and survive. I'll be watching carefully.
