Bird Flu in Thailand…

I was reading BBC News online this morning and came across this article.
A 59 year old man died of bird flu near the Lao Boarder and was believed to have been in contact with sick chicken before getting ill.
Further-down the text it says that..
”Thailand was initially criticized for being slow to respond to the disease, but it is now considered to be one of the countries best prepared to combat the virus. ”
comment.. a good thing because Thailand and Vietnam are the hardest hit countries and have had the most people who got ill and died of birdflu. Here’s a great chart to see how bird flu has spread.
Do I worry about Bird Flu? No. Do you?

    To answer your question, no. Last year when I was in Bangkok I made sure to eat lots of chicken curry and our famous American fried chicken. If you want to visit my site, you can click on my name. I’m hanging out on the planet…

    We live close to the Lake of Bodensee and friends in our village are chicken farmers. Our Kids play often there.

    So I do care, but I’m not much worried.

    This spring, we didn’t feed birds at the lake, the farmer wasn’t allowed to have the chicken outside of the building, he had to install a securitygate and only one person was allowed to get the eggs.

    All this because of Bird Flu danger.

    Here in Switzerland the newspapers are not discuss anymore the bird flu case. Are all the birds gone or dead? It’s probably not very interesting and therefore not a longseller.
