UN Bird Flu Chief Predicts 150 Million Deaths

When it comes to predictions of the number of deaths from H5N1, I tend to look skeptically at the numbers.  However, the UN has just appointed Dr David Nabarro as its Bird Flu chief, and the BBC world service is quoting him in their headlines as saying the toll will be as high as 150 million.  That is truly remarkable, and the interview with the BBC he says firmly "when" not "if".
