Bird flu infection may be asymptomatic

At least 2 people in Vietnam were infected with avian flu but didn't get symptoms

This is good news in that maybe it won't make people as ill as was feared, but bad news in that it may be spreading more than is realized.

Interestingly, both asymptomatic individuals were elderly, which ties in with the observation in the 1918 pandemic that mortality was highest among young adults.
