News reports repeatedly trumpet the same alarming facts that avian flu is spreading across the globe killing thousands in a deadly pandemic. However the truth is considerably less alarming.
Avian Flu generally refers to infection in birds by the type A H5N1 influenza virus although when humans are infected by this virus they too are described as having been infected with avian flu. Type A is a broad category of flu viruses that can infect humans and lead to pandemics. The H and the N in bird flu's official name refer to two proteins that reside on the outside of the virus and allow it to penetrate a cell and after reproducing itself exit the cell in order to move on and infect other cells.
