Various bird flus have infected Humans, but
   they have not yet mutated to allow transmission between humans

VitaminDWiki became aware that such a mutation could result in a pandemic far worse that COVID-19

VitaminDWiki is very concerned that the immune systems of both humans AND chickens be improved so as to greatly reduce that possibility
Currently. chickens are given just enough vitamins so that they can live for 6 weeks - More is needed

Vitamins are nutritional elements which are necessary for essential activities such as development, growth, and metabolism of cells. In addition to these conventional functions, vitamins A, D, E, and C have vital roles in normal function of the immune system as their deficiency is known to impair innate and adaptive host responses. By altering transcription of multiple immune system genes and contributing to antioxidant activities, these vitamins influence the immune system in different ways including modulation of cell-mediated and antibody-mediated responses, immunoregulation, and antiinflammatory effects. Furthermore, supplementation of these vitamins to poultry may assist the immune system to combat microbial pathogens while reducing detrimental effects associated with stress and enhancing responses to vaccines. In this article, the relationship between the chicken immune system and vitamins A, D, E, and C is reviewed, and evidence from the literature pertaining to how these vitamins exert their antiinflammatory, regulatory, and antimicrobial effects is discussed.
