End of the media driven bird flu scare?

Let's hope so.

British scientists are on the verge of producing a revolutionary flu vaccine that works against all major types of the disease.

Described as the 'holy grail' of flu vaccines, it would protect against all strains of influenza A - the virus behind both bird flu and the nastiest outbreaks of winter flu.

If this vaccine works as anticipated, I predict that the media will rediscover their abject terror over ebola in record time.
