In addition, persons who are seropositive for H5N1 infection often report no history of influenza-like illness, and subclinical or mild H5N1 infections are not recognized under the WHO criteria for confirmed cases.

[Rural Health] Avian Influenza – Bird Flu FAQ | Rural Health: In the human body, this avian flu virus then undergoes an antigenic shift, combines with genetic material of a human strain of influenza virus and creates an entirely new strain of virus against which humans have little or no immunity. These genetic reassortments may also take place is the body of a third species (susceptible to both avian and human viruses) like the pig, where an avian influenza A virus and human influenza virus mix their genetic information and produce a new virus which might be able to infect humans.

[UK Essays] Avian Influenza epidemic: All Type A Influenza viruses both those that can infect humans and birds have a high mutation rate as there is no internal mechanism to stop changes in the virus's genetic code during replication and there is a lack of ability to repair any change. This allows the genetic code of the virus to change at almost every replication creating multiple strains of the virus due to the production of antigenic variants.

[virology blog] Evidence for influenza H5N1 infections in humans - Virology Blog:  The data from cell culture and animal models of H5N1 supports the paradigm that H5N1 is highly pathogenic.  However, similar models led to false conclusions about the 2009 pH1N1 virus.   There is absolutely a need to isolate H5N1 viruses from these less severe cases, to determine whether our models are fooling us.  My worry is that even if the statistically predominant strains of H5N1 flu viruses are less pathogenic than previously thought, we already have enough case evidence to show us that there are potentially lethal strains of H5N1.  The type of virus that emerges could be simple chance, and I’m not willing to bet the farm that it will be less pathogenic than anticipated.  All it takes is one bad virus strain (i.e.
