The news this morning said something about the avian flu finally hitting the United Kingdom. Swans were found dead in Scotland and it's highly suspected that it's because of the H5N1 virus. Similarly, domestic chicken are being culled in a certain part of Germany after an outbreak of the virus in several farms.

So the virus decided to take an western route rather than hitting us directly here in the Philippines. After China, it swept through Africa and Eastern Europe. Now it's in Germany and the UK. Will it make the big jump across the Atlantic towards East Coast United States? From there, who knows how it will spread? Pretty soon it will be here.

Buti na lang libre ang facemask sa office namin.
