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?
