If it happened once, it will happen again... Note that the mutations did NOT 
make the virus 
significantly less deadly, which is more than bothersome.

The transmission of the bird flu virus between human beings has been confirmed 
in 
Indonesia, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
WHO officials said that an entire family that contracted the virus died; 
however, there was no 
possibility of an epidemic.
It was rumored that a woman became infected with the bird flu virus from a 
chicken and 
spread it to the rest of her household. The virus was then transmitted to the 
father from his 
son.
Because of this, the virus mutated twice.
The deadly H5N1 strain of the bird flu virus first emerged in Asia in 2003.
Since then it has claimed approximately 130 lives across the world.
