Avian Influenza

The bird flu virus, known as A(H5N1), belongs to a group of influenza viruses known as Type A, which are the only ones that have caused pandemics. It has been steadily advancing around the world, first appearing in Asia, then Europe and Africa. The apparent lethality of A(H5N1), combined with its inexorable spread, are what have made scientists take it seriously. The virus lacks just one trait that could turn it into a pandemic: transmissibility, the ability to spread easily from person to person. If the virus acquires that ability, a worldwide epidemic could erupt.

The A(H5N1) strains circulating now are quite different from the A(H5N1) strain detected in Hong Kong in 1997, which killed 6 of 18 human victims. Over time, A(H5N1) seems to have developed the ability to infect more and more species of birds, and has found its way into mammals -- specifically, cats that have eaten infected birds. A collection of articles about avian influenza published in The New York Times.
