Whats scary is H5N1 has a protein structure very similar to the Spanish Flu virus, and a mortality rate slightly higher (despite 87 years of medical advances!). Once it mutates (very common amongst Influenza strains, including inter-strain mutation) into a form transmittable from human to human, a pandemic will emerge within days. It is already wildly infectious among birds.
