Bird flu 'has pandemic potential'
By Michelle Roberts
BBC News Health reporter, Washington DC
The bird flu virus could mutate to pass from human to human and trigger a pandemic, latest scientific evidence suggests, scientists say.
Although H5N1 has only killed 42 people so far in comparison, its death to infection rate is 76%.

"It is very frightening to see such a high case fatality rate," said Dr Cox, but she said it might be that less serious or ambiguous cases had not been picked up, which would mean the real rate could be lower than this.

I guess we won't see National Health Care until rich people start getting it from their gardeners...
