Experts gathered on Wednesday to figure out how to halt the rapid spread of bird flu through Asia, which has killed at least eight people and threatens to develop into an epidemic more terrifying than SARS. Their task was huge now that the virulent virus struck in China, the birthplace of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. The world's most populous nation is home to a vast poultry industry. So overwhelming is the job of killing tens of millions of domestic birds in hopes of removing the breeding grounds of the virus, international organizations have launched an urgent appeal for the money and expertise to fight an all-out war on it. The great fear is that the avian flu virus might mate with human influenza and unleash a pandemic among people with no immunity to it. So far, there is no evidence of people-to-people transmission. Humans infected so far are believed to have caught the virus directly from birds. But experts say no matter how remote the possibility, they fear it could happen and the WHO underlined that by launching its appeal with the Food and Agricultural Organization and the world Organization for Animal Health. A bird flu outbreak in China was what experts dreaded most given the speed at which the virus spreads.
