Virtual Anatomy: Information

Though i want my animation to be theatrical and interesting, I want it to be factually correct. This website below goes some way to explaining what a flu virus actually does inside the human body. The site features some diagrams and it explains the science of a flu virus fairly well. Information that's specific to H5N1 is hard to come across but how it works is very similar to a regular flu virus.

Oddly enough the Flu virus itself won't actually kill you, rather your more likely to suffer pneumonia or Reye's syndrome and die that way, very pleasant!
