WE KEEP HEARING THERE'S NO VACCINE DEVELOPED YET TO PREVENT THE BIRD FLU - AND NO MEDICINE TO TREAT IT.

SO, IS THERE ANYTHING YOU CAN DO AT HOME TO PROTECT YOUR FAMILY?

MEDICAL REPORTER KATHY FOWLER JOINS US WITH THIS STORY.

Kathy Fowler on set:
EXPERTS SAY THE BIRD FLU IS EXPECTED TO SPREAD TO PARTS OF EUROPE, BUT THE BIGGEST THREAT OF IT MUTATING TO A HUMAN VIRUS REMAINS IN ASIA, NOT AMERICA.

THERE'S NO REASON TO PANIC, BUT PLENTY OF REASONS TO BE PREPARED TO PROTECT YOURSELF IF THE SITUATION CHANGES.

Story script:
AS U.S. HEALTH OFFICIALS TRAVEL TO EUROPE AND ASIA FOR SURVEILLANCE AND CONTAINMENT OF A POSSIBLE AVIAN FLU OUTBREAK IN HUMANS. DOCTORS HERE AT HOME SAY THERE ARE SOME SMALL STEPS AMERICANS CAN TAKE TO HELP PROTECT THEMSELVES.

FOR ONE, GET A FLU SHOT - WHILE IT WON'T PROTECT AGAINST THE AVIAN FLU, IT IS HELPFUL FOR OTHER REASONS.

Dr. Shmuel Shoham: "If you had the flu shot then you are less likely to get the flu, then avian flu were it to come here doctors and health care professionals know what you have. There would be that many less people getting respiratory due to regular old influenza.

FAMILIES SHOULD ALSO MAKE SURE THEIR EMERGENCY SUPPLY KITS ARE UP TO DATE.

Dr. Shoham: "I think this is a good time to be preparing about a variety different emergencies. Having a few days supply of things you might need if you weren't allowed to leave the house, or couldn't leave the house would be a good thing to do

BOTH THE REGULAR FLU AND BIRD FLU ARE CONTAGIOUS - SO IT'S IMPORTANT PEOPLE STAY HOME AND NOT EXPOSE OTHERS TO THE VIRUS. THAT MEANS BEFORE ANY FLU STRAIN HITS, STOCK UP ON CANNED GOODS, WATER, AND PLENTY OF OVER THE COUNTER MEDICINES LIKE TYLENOL AND ROBITUSSIN.
AND OF COURSE, AN EXTRA SUPPLY OF ANY PRESCRIPTION MEDICINE.

DOCTORS ALSO RECOMMEND HAVING ALCOHOL GEL, LATEX GLOVES AND A BREATHING MASK ON HAND TO REDUCE THE RISK OF THE FLU SPREADING FROM ONE FAMILY MEMBER TO ANOTHER.


Kathy Fowler on set:
THE U.S. GOVERNMENT IS TALKING WITH DRUG AND VACCINE MAKERS TO STEP UP PRODUCTION OF ANTI-VIRAL DRUGS IN THE EVENT THE VIRUS REACHES AMERICA. RIGHT NOW FRANCE AND BRITAIN HAVE 14 MILLION DOSES STOCKPILED - THE U.S. ONLY HAS 2 MILLION DOSES AVAILABLE.

To store clerk:

"Yes ma'am, its for the bird flu"

To parents:

"Just warding off that nasty avian flu"


And the best part is, if the flu never comes, the robo will never go to waste :thumbsup:

I don't think alcohol is going to kill viruses since like, viruses arent alive. :thumbsup:

Anti-viral drugs? You mean like that poison that doesn't work they shove down kids throats who turn up HIV positive in New York? I think ill take my chance with the flu.

Dude, the "revolution" to undermine and eradicate the constitution is already taking place.

Not that you're making any sort of coherent point anyway.

fuck making a point here. that was a RAP explaining tha life i lead. you have no idea: i live for revolution of all kinds and tha rebirth of tha renaissance. truth is in tha life i lead and it aint about americas constitution i speak. its tha inner world constitution. try harder not to make dumbass assumptions . like in tha head. you dont see tha revolution i live day to day. right now im bringing an artistic renaissance to my area and revitalizing tha local scene. my shits about to be in art shows and display cases at tha college i go to. my art professor, who is an accomplished and seasoned painter and artist tells me my shits gonna explode on tha world. he says its just what we need to brethe life back into the scene. and thats just tha beginning, but i wouldnt expect you to know. i do SOOO much in terms of revolution, like leading a counterculture group, making music, trying to change my world and tha world we live in for tha better, being a practicing shaman...good god, fool. you dont knw what you cant see. notice how nobody knows youre a fuckup psychoretard until you open ya yapper. also remember, kiddies: remove cock from mouth before speaking. its just damn rude! and of course, like always, fuck your criticizm. your pussy shit dont weigh much against tha thousands that know me and love me and my work. get fucked. thank you come again.
