Is it possible to avoid an influenza pandemic?

No. The H5N1 influenza virus has been endangering the health and lives of both birds and human beings since 1997, which has made hundreds of millions of poultry and birds culled. The number of the human infected cases is also increasing. Until September 15th, 2005 the World Health Organization had confirmed 114 infected cases and 59 deaths. H5N1 has made avian influenza become a regional disease in Southeast Asia. The constant change and mutation of the viruses may lead to a worldwide outbreak of avian influenza.
