Although only 131 people have died from the H5N1 avian flu virus since 2003, European officials are predicting some flu pandemic as "inevitable". European experts claim that millions will be killed.
Director-general of the EU's health and consumer protection department Robert Madelin commented: "It's when and not if." In addition, the World Bank predicts that 70 million people worldwide could die from a flu outbreak.
Great Britain's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs issued the statement: "The virus [H5N1] may continue to be introduced in some parts of the EU and eventually arrive in the U.K. because of the potential for limited mixing at some contact points between the existing wild water-bird populations from Eastern Europe with the populations in the EU."
