The global spread of highly pathogenic H5N1 in birds is considered a significant pandemic threat. While prior H5N1 strains have been known, they were significantly different from the 2006 strain of H5N1 on a genetic level, making the global spread of this new strain unprecedented. The 2006 strain of H5N1 is a fast-mutating, highly pathogenic avian influenza virus HPAI found in multiple bird species. It is both epizootic an epidemic in non-humans and panzootic. British reports warn that in response to an influenza pandemic local groups will not be able to rely on the armed forces, widespread infection could occur in days not months, an effective vaccine can not be counted on, and the huge death toll could swamp mortuaries so A key point for local planning is likely to be the identification of potential sites for.
