I’d been asking this question lately, but admittedly was too lazy to look into it. Thankfully, the New York Times did my legwork over the weekend: “But scientists say that although the threat from the current avian flu virus is real, it is probably not immediate.” Not to discount completely the risk, fears, and preparations, but that’s hardly scientifically rigorous, is it? Just about any possible catastrophe would qualify.
