Bird flu 'passed between humans' - BBC
Sounds like an isolated case, but it's a worrying development..

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/4215659.stm

Scientists have said a woman who died of bird flu probably contracted the disease from her daughter.

The researchers from the Thai Ministry of Public Health warn it is likely there will be more cases where the virus is passed from human-to-human.

Professor John Oxford, a leading UK expert, said the virus had broken down the "final door" which prevented it being spread between people.

The study is published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

2. I kept close watch on it last year at this time
Looks like it bears close watching this year too. They have nothing to fight it with.
