NEW YORK (Reuters) - Authorities have discovered a mild form of avian influenza at a live bird market in New Jersey, but it is not the deadly H5N1 strain governments around the world are trying to contain, the state's agriculture department said.

"The strain was found in a live bird market in Camden County. None of the birds in the market died from this virus, which is an indicator that the virus was low pathogenic and not harmful to humans," said a statement by New Jersey's Agriculture Secretary Charles Kuperus which was posted on Friday.

Details were not immediately available on precisely when the avian flu in Camden County was discovered

So now its here. Will your life change? I dont foresee mine changing as its still hasnt jumped species directly.

Not protesting, but getting ready to go shopping!

Didn't the article say that it was not the H5N1 virus? Maybe it's just a "normal" avian flu (although I'm not sure there is such a thing...). From my understanding, it's the H5N1 strain that is of the major concern.

Can anyone clarify?

Maybe we are just not worried about this anymore?

Ok. I posted it because some here definatedly think this latest type of boogey tactic is gonna get us. Maybe there's been a change of heart.

Oh, I am concerned about H5N1, especially if it manages to mutate into H2H transmission. But I don't tend to panic over everything, while at the same time being aware and prepared for whatever comes my way.

I just saw this and was going to post it when I saw that you
had posted it first.

'Mild' form, eh?? Yeah .... it's going to mutate... if it hasn't
already done so.

Comets, bird flu, increased hurricanes, and invasion by
illegals bent on taking over the country ... ugh ....
what a freak'n downer all this is, eh??

We just put fresh water in our emergency water barrels
this weekend. Yes, I know that bird flu doesn't effect
the water. However, with enough people getting sick from
it, or afraid to leave the house, the supply chain for getting
chlorine and other chemicals to the water plants could
very easily be interrupted.
