Here we go again.....Bird flu outbreaks in Egypt and Britain.

Turkey and goose may be off the menu at Christmas if bird flu spreads after outbreak at duck farm, experts warn

  • Turkey farms 'at risk' because of rise in activity in run-up to Christmas
  • Warning comes after first case since 2008 in Nafferton, East Yorkshire
  • All 6,000 ducks at the Cherry Valley breeding farm are to be slaughtered 
  • Cherry Valley supplies frozen Pekin ducks to Tesco, M&S and Aldi
  • Also exports millions of ducks to China and restaurants in the UK 
  • Sales of eggs in the area to be 'meticulously recorded' since outbreak  
  • The H5N8 strain of Bird Flu has been detected in Germany and Netherlands
  • There are no reports of more deadly component which can affect humans 
  • Environment secretary Liz Truss said risk to public was 'very low' 

Turkey and goose farms could be at risk if bird flu spreads after the country's serious first outbreak since 2008 at a duck breeding farm, experts have warned.

Leading virologists said the rise in animal movements before Christmas increases the risk of the disease spreading, with free-range birds particularly vulnerable.

All 6,000 ducks are being culled at the stricken farm in the village of Nafferton, East Yorkshire, run by Britain's largest specialist duck supplier, and authorities have set up a 10km surveillance zone.

Bird flu kills teenager in Egypt: Woman, 19, is killed by H5N1 strain after coming into contact with infected birds

  • A 19-year-old Egyptian woman has died from bird flu
  • The teenager had come in contact with birds infected with H5N1
  • This follows Britain's first bird flu outbreak since 2008

A young Egyptian woman has died from bird flu, the second death from the virus this year, a health ministry spokesman said.

The 19-year-old contracted the deadly H5N1 strain after coming into contact with infected birds and died Monday at a hospital in the southern region of Assiut.

Egypt has identified seven cases of the virus in people this year, including the two who died, spokesman Hosam Abdel Gaffar said.

Good grief...have they found a way to knock off more people, sell more vaccines? Another elaborate hoax, I presume. Thanks, sharing this.
