[Question] H5N1. Just how bad is the situation?

How bad do you think the H5N1 situation is? I tried to search on LessWrong and EffectiveAltruism, but haven’t found that much discussion.

When I was reading about H5N1, a lot of my assumptions were broken. I was shocked how vulnerable we are to the most “predictable” threats.

Should/​can rationalists take this threat into account? Can this threat warrant even, I dunno, some community-wide preparation?

Edit: this comment gives specific predictions. Can somebody explain the justification behind such predictions? What exactly keeps the risk relatively low?
