InfluenzaA/bar-headed goose/Qinghai/14/2008 H5N1Background

Influenza A virus subtype H5N1, also known as "bird flu", A (H5N1) or simply H5N1, is a subtype of the Influenza A virus which can cause illness in humans and many other animal species. A bird-adapted strain of H5N1, called HPAI A (H5N1) for "highly pathogenic avian influenza virus of type A of subtype H5N1", is the causative agent of H5N1 flu, commonly known as "avian influenza" or "bird flu". It is enzootic in many bird populations, especially in Southeast Asia. Asian-linage HPAI H5N1 that kills over half the humans it infects, infecting and killing species that were never known to suffer from influenza viruses before (e.g. cats), being unable to be stopped by culling all involved poultry-some think due to being endemic in wild birds, and causing billions of dollars to be spent in flu pandemic preparation and preventiveness.
