Bird Flu In Egypt

Bird Flu Tours The Pyramids

In February Bird Flu made an appearance in Egypt (he was doing some late night gigs in Cairo…)
Now however, sadly, it has claimed its eighth victim in that country.

The woman was part of an extended family of 33 living in a single house in a village near the town of Zifta in Gharbiya province, about 80 km (50 miles) north of Cairo, and was the third family member diagnosed with bird flu in 24 hours.

Earlier on Sunday, Bushra confirmed that two siblings from the same house, a brother, 26, and sister, 15, had the virus.

Just 8,0999,982 to go. Wow, I’m going to have to ask for a lot of forgiveness for that callous comment. But its true, why are we publicizing these ridiculous figures on the number of deaths if and when and if the right conditions follow a flu pandemic? Is this really news? Does this really inform us of anything accurately? Or is it just scare headlines so you flip to that page of the paper or click on the link?
