After H1N1 now we have H5N1

Soon we'll have zombie flyers my fellow netizens! After H1N1 outbreak, looks like now we have to deal with the H5N1. This is another highly pathogenic strain of avian influenza. I now have the feeling and I'm starting to believe that this new viruses are some sort of experimentation for biological weapons. Just imagine how it's so easy to test this kind of viruses, all these scientists have to do is inject some crazy stuff into a migratory bird.
 
A flying dead bird ound near Bulgaria's Black Sea port of Varna has tested positive for the deadly H5N1 virus. It's not flying of course, it's April's fools crazy! But quit laughing my friends, this virus isn't something to laugh about, according to the famous wiki around 60% of humans known to have been infected with the current Asian strain of HPAI A(H5N1) have died from it, and H5N1 may mutate or reassort into a strain capable of efficient human-to-human transmission.
 
The reported mortality rate of highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza in a human is high; WHO data indicates that 60% of cases classified as H5N1 resulted in death. That is one hell of a scary report there by the World Health Organization. I hope walgreens stores are ready for H5N1 vaccine...
