Bad moon rising

2 articles on avian flu here and here. Not much new info. Deaths continue in Vietnam and the WHO is worried about a pandemic if/once efficient human to human spread emerges.

The Ebola outbreak in the Republic of Congo continues:
Authorities in the Republic of Congo have quarantined two northwestern districts hit by the deadly Ebola virus to ensure the highly contagious disease does not spread, officials said Friday.
This sounds drastic, but should ensure limited spread outside the effected areas.
