Flu and Cold

Chinese Health Official Issues Stark Bird Flu Warning

This is, quite frankly, the kind of hyperbolic 'speculation' I try to avoid in this blog. Had this been reported by a tabloid paper, I might have skipped it entirely. However, when the Chinese State media, which tends to downplay anything that casts a negative light on China, warns of a possible `epidemic' of human cases of bird flu over the next few months - even my jaded ears perk up a little.

Now, exactly what is meant by an `epidemic' of human cases isn't completely clear. I wouldn't read too much into this phraseology. Not just yet, anyway.
