It was only called Spanish flu In the USA and that is how history recorded it. The epidemic started in the USA and was brought to Europe by American troops. 20% of the global population was affected. A popular rhyme at the time and when I was younger might yet be sung again.

I had a little bird,
Its name was Enza.
I opened the window,
And in-flu-enza.

Once again it’s more of the tried and tested “create the problem, profit from the solution” syndrome.

First mammalian victim of H5N1:
"A domestic cat in Germany has become the first European Union mammal to die of the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu."

i think the bird flu will eventually reach all corners of the globe, its on australias doorstep with indonesia infected. i think its a good thing that many governments are putting a lot of money into researching the deadly H5N1 strain, luckily australia doesnt import chicken or eggs

I haven't heard of reports of bird flu anywhere for a fair while now.

Good thing too I suppose.

They have been giving birds injections against it for a couple of weeks already. But that wasn't in "no time", it's been out there for quite a while

Haven't really heard anything about it anymore either...
