False Alarm???

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4898398.stm

The 'working hypothesis' in Whitehall is that the swan that died of the 'deadly strain of bird flu' may have been washed up from another country.

The type of H5N1 it had was identical to the one found in Germany, and it seems as if the failure to find any other dead swans in Scotland suggests this may well be a one-off that was swept ashore by the tides.

So does this mean we're going to have all of this hullabaloo all over again when the UK does actually have bird flu!?!

And does this mean that the concern was all a fuss over nothing?

I've not seen this news reported on TV yet, but I'm willing to bet that it won't get the same attention in the media that the initial 'outbreak' did.
