#107390 - Even bigger problem
Responding to: Ian Bell's previous message

Unfortunately, it's not just humans.

Pigs are (physiologically) so similar to us that they are succeptible to many infections that we can contract, including all kinds of influenza strains. They can also contract bird 'flu and inside their bodies this could very easily recombine with a human-to-human influenza virus.

Fingers crossed indeed.
