Right now, it is hard for humans to catch or pass the bird flu to each other. However, if the germs change, it could become easier for people to spread the bird flu to each other. Most people have never been exposed to the bird flu. They have not built-up natural defenses (immunity) to fight it. Therefore, the bird flu could spread quickly. The bird flu could become a pandemic infection. This is why it is important to prevent the bird flu.
