Book Summary:

Avian influenza, or 'bird flu', is a contagious disease of animals caused by viruses that normally infect only birds and, less commonly, pigs. Avian influenza viruses are highly species-specific, but have, on rare occasions, crossed the species barrier to infect humans. In domestic poultry, infection with avian influenza viruses causes two main forms of disease, distinguished by low and high extremes of virulence. The so-called "low pathogenic" form commonly causes only mild symptoms (ruffled feathers, a drop in egg production) and may easily go undetected. The highly pathogenic form is far more dramatic. It spreads very rapidly through poultry flocks, causes disease affecting multiple internal organs, and has a mortality that can approach 100%, often within 48 hours. A pandemic can start when three conditions have been met: a new influenza virus subtype emerges; it infects humans, causing serious illness; and it spreads easily and sustainably among humans. The H5N1 virus amply meets the first two conditions: it is a new virus for humans (H5N1 viruses have never circulated widely among people), and it has infected more than 100 humans, killing over half of them. No one will have immunity should an H5N1-like pandemic virus emerge. All prerequisites for the start of a pandemic have therefore been met save one: the establishment of efficient and sustained human-to-human transmission of the virus. The risk that the H5N1 virus will acquire this ability will persist as long as opportunities for human infections occur. These opportunities, in turn, will persist as long as the virus continues to circulate in birds, and this situation could endure for some years to come.

Book Summary:

So far the bird flu has not spread to all countries, and the vast majority of those who have been affected actually handled the birds or came into contact with contaminated spaces. So if this is anything to go by, if you do not have chickens then you should be safe from the bird flu. There have been no reports as of yet of any bird flu victims catching the flu from other people, only from the birds themselves. I don’t know about you but this certainly puts my mind at rest somewhat. Discover everything you need to know by reading this ebook.

Book Summary:

The most probable and the greatest likely imminent threat to the United States and the rest of the world is a severe bird flu pandemic. There are an estimated four influenza (flu) pandemics each century. The last severe one was in 1918. This killed about five percent of the world's population. Five percent of today's U.S. population would be approximately fifteen million people (three hundred million of the world's pop.). Influenza mutates extremely rapidly even compared to other viruses. Influenza also can share genes with other strains of influenza. This makes it very possible or even probable that the deadly persistent bird flu (the H5N1 strain) currently sweeping the wild and domestic bird populations will eventually be able to be easily transmitted from human to human. Influenza has a history of being one of the most contagious of viral infections. The H5N1 strain of influenza is known to have infected 240 humans. Of these, 140 have died for a death rate of 58%. If it becomes easily contagious between humans, no one knows what the death rate will be. It could easily be very high. Modern medicine will not be capable of curing such an infection. This story is about a small group trying to survive in the social upheaval of a severe pandemic. I believe such chaos is possible. (Mike Stones MD)

Book Summary:

The word Plague comes down to us from history representing death incarnate. It is a reference to an epidemic disease characterized by its fast movement and unusually high rate of mortality. Its most famous incarnation was the Black Death of the 14th century. The most famous plague of the modern era was the 1918 Spanish Flu. Governments never managed to count all the dead from 1918. Over a three to fourteen month period there might have been as many as 500 million dead world wide. Nothing could stop it. Now its 21st century cousin, The Bird Flu, is migrating throughout the globe. If we discover its human subtype six to nine months before a major outbreak we can keep survival rates high. If not, Bird Flu is far more deadly than its 1918 counterpart. Its primary target is individuals ages 12 to 54 and theres no way modern science can stop it. If the world doesnt discover the human subtype with enough warning to make a vaccine, then like our families did in 1918, we will also loose count of the dead. This book has three primary goals. First is to use a relatively short format to delivery a great deal of critical information, analysis, option and ideas about managing a natural disaster like Bird Flu. Second is to make sure the reader understands that if there is a surprise outbreak of Bird Flu there is no way that either government or science is going to be able to do anything to stop it. Last is to spread the word that by following a set of simple, if not tedious rules, means that people can save both themselves and their families. In reading this book everyone must keep in mind that it is not a matter of if the Bird Flu will create a plague, it is only matter of when it will happen. Even if no one had ever heard of Bird Flu the world of science would be looking for it because they know it is coming.

Book Summary:

This book tells you the truth about bid flu - something that is difficult to find. There is a great deal written but much of it is not the truth. The book includes extracts from official documents in the US, the UK, and the World Health Organisation. The book also explains why the current mortality rate of around 50% is unlikely to be sustained if this virus goes global and why Tamiflu may not be the best treatment. "If you were a tsunami victim or a hurricane victim and could turn back the clock to prepare yourself foran inevitable tragedy in your path, there is no question that you would. With John Piper's book you are given the information to prepare for the inevitable bird flu pandemic that will touch all of our lives. He has done the research, now all you have to do is read and prepare." - Adrienne Toghraie "The book is well researched, objectively presented with attention given to avoiding hysterical response. It sets out the facts in a balanced way and allowed me to assess my actions in an informed way." - Richard Piercy
