How much harm will an influenza outbreak do on our health?

According to the prediction model proposed by CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, US), once the avian influenza viruses become transmissible from human to human, there may be up to 5.3 million people getting infected. More than 70,000 people may need hospitalization and 14,000 people may die. The results are estimated based on the population in Taiwan with an assumed infection rate 25%.
