HowStuffWorks helps break down the avian virus and how it works using a style that is easy for anyone to understand. From the origin of the virus strain in a bird to entry into the human respiratory system and finally into the blood, HowStuffWorks describes every step of the process, the symptoms and the necessary precautions that should be taken to protect yourself.
Tom Harris, HowStuffWorks' Editorial Director, commented, "We want to equip people across the globe with information about how the bird flu works. The many stories and warnings that are streaming across the media beg the question of what is this new pandemic and how can I protect myself? We developed this feature to help educate people and answer some of those questions."
