Late last night, Recombinomics posted this bombshell--reports that the bird flu MAY have taken 121 cases in China where the geese died.

Effect Measure weighs in as well.

If true, then our perception of the whole situation has to change. Check back tonight for more news.

There seems to be little explanation about the cluster of the family in Indonesia such as how did they contact it and how was it spread from person to person on what basis did 39? people 'chose' to quarantee themselves? Did they all feast on diseased bird? did one clean a chicken and then spread did they all have contact with birds. we need some information to judge whether this is a real threatening cluster. obviouslly the authorites view the situation as not serious because they say that the quaranteeing was voluntary. if it was serious then quaranteeing would have been compulsory
