This H5N1 bird flu is a different strain. But it is hitting the under 40 age group much more frequently than those over 40.
See the last graph on this page: http://www.wpro.who.int/sites/csr/data/data_Graphs.htm

Maybe us old folks do have some immunity? Or maybe older people just don't have as much contact with wild birds or poultry?

I'm in the process of moving, yes. Nothing to do with dead swans I just want a change of scenery.

Mad Russian sounds like an alcoholic drink.
