From the WSJ.com Avian Flu News Tracker:

2:15 a.m.: The spread of avian flu to at least 29 new countries in the last seven weeks ‘” one of the biggest outbreaks of the virus since it emerged nine years ago ‘” is prompting a sobering reassessment of the strategy that has guided efforts to contain the disease, the Los Angeles Times reports. The speed of its migration and the vast area it has infected have forced scientists to concede there is little that can be done to stop its spread across the globe. “We expected it to move, but not any of us thought it would move quite like this,” said Dr. David Nabarro, the U.N.’s coordinator on bird-flu efforts. The hope was once that culling millions of chickens and ducks would contain the virus. Now, the strategy has shifted toward managing a disease that will probably be everywhere.
