...German cat infected
Scientists fear move to other mammals

         The discovery of a bird flu infection in a cat in Germany underscores what scientists have long known-that the deadly H5N1 strain of the virus can infect a wide range of mammals,aspokeswomen for the UN health agency said yesterday.
         "We know that mammals can become infected with H5N1,"said Maria Cheng of the World Health Organisation."But we dont know what this means for humans.We don't know if they would play a role in transmitting the disease.We don't know how much the virus would excrete, how much people would need to be exposed to before they would fall ill."
