inhuanet reports that experts say, there is no cause for panic and the virus is under control. (Really…under control?!?!?!?)
A quiet battle against bird flu. By Monday, 60 infections had been reported in China, with the death toll standing at 13. On Monday, a suspected new case of bird flu virus was reported in the Chinese capital. Bao Zhongying is an expert on the virus. She says the increasing number of cases does not change the overall risk assessment. So far, no evidence of human-to-human transmission has been found, and there is no cause for panic.
