Bird Flu...any info on this?

I've seen a few small items on TV on those banners that run along the bottom of the TV on the news networks, and more than once I've seen bits concerning what appears to be not only a possibly new strain or another strain of flu, but also one that supposedly is responsible for 5 deaths so far. Does anybody have more relevant information about this new flu? It is being called "BIRD FLU".

I think it's in Japan. It's from the feces of chickens. Not washing your hands after touching this bird's feces...get the flu. They were killing a bunch of chickens there. I don't think it's here in the states....yet.
