Yet more confirmation that the H5N1 strain of bird flu is making an inevitable foray into Europe. Should we be overly worried? Is it time to panic, or is this going to be another Y2K doomsday scenario: something that just fizzes out rather than becoming the apocalyptic cataclysm widely predicted by the "experts"?
But I'll be taking the flu jab at work and stocking up on Berocca.
Just in case.
P.S. Has anyone else read The Stand by Stephen King? If this does develop into a pandemic, look out for a charismatic fella wearing cowboy boots. . .
