Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the strain of Avian Flu that can mutate to spread from birds to humans?

    • A.

    • B.

      H1N5

    • C.

      H5N1

    • D.

      H4N2

    Correct Answer
    C. H5N1
    Explanation
    H5N1 is the strain of Avian Flu that can mutate to spread from birds to humans. This strain is highly pathogenic and has caused outbreaks in poultry populations across several countries. It has also been responsible for sporadic cases of human infection, with a high mortality rate. The ability of H5N1 to infect humans is a significant concern due to the potential for a global pandemic if the virus acquires the ability to transmit efficiently between humans.

Since then, there have been several outbreaks of Avian Flu in different parts of Asia, but it did not start spreading in 2005.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Why was the Avian Flu considered to be such a threat to humans? (Choose 2)

    • A.

      It would mutate to spread from human to human.

    • B.

      It would kill everyone it infected.

    • C.

      It would cause a global pandemic.

    • D.

      It would kill poultry around the world, leaving less food for humans.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. It would mutate to spread from human to human.
    C. It would cause a global pandemic.
    Explanation
    The Avian Flu was considered to be a threat to humans because it had the potential to mutate and spread from human to human. This would increase the rate of transmission and make it easier for the virus to infect a larger population. Additionally, the Avian Flu had the potential to cause a global pandemic, which would have widespread and severe impacts on public health and the global economy.

    Explanation
    The US government recommended that people should prepare for an emergency situation by getting a supply of extra food and water, as well as securing an extra supply of all the medications they need. This suggests that individuals should stock up on essential items to ensure they have enough provisions to sustain themselves during a crisis or disaster.

    True or False: The Avian Flu still causes a threat to humans today.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Explanation
    The Avian Flu, also known as bird flu, is caused by influenza viruses that primarily infect birds. While the virus does not usually infect humans, there have been cases of transmission from birds to humans. The Avian Flu can cause severe respiratory illness and has the potential to cause a global pandemic if it mutates into a form that can easily spread between humans. Therefore, it is true that the Avian Flu still poses a threat to humans today.
