Influenza A H5N1

H5N1 is called avian influenza or bird flu that causes a highly infectious, severe respiratory disease in birds. H5N1 is hard to transmit form people to people. But, the mortality of people infected by H5N1 is about 60%. H5N1 infection in humans can cause severe disease. It would be horrible if H5N1 could transmit among humans easily.
H5N1 is a type of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). In 1966, H5N1 was first found in geese in China. In 1997, H5N1 was first found in humans in HongKong, China. Since then, H5N1 are found in poultry and wild birds in more than 50 countries.
