Summary
Avian influenza A (H5N1) has successfully made the leap from poultry to people. Is a human-to-human pandemic inevitable? Using Southeast Asia as a case study, this Wide Angle report looks at the Vietnamese government's efforts to contain the disease while educating its population. In addition, Bill Moyers speaks with Dr. Anthony Fauci, of the National Institutes of Health, about how this lethal virus mutates and spreads, symptoms of infection, best- and worst-case survival scenarios, the vaccination development process, and whether there will be enough vaccine in the event of a major outbreak.
