Nigeria is one of three countries experts consider the weak links in efforts to control bird flu and prevent a pandemic.



Bird flu spreads to new state in northern Nigeria

Veterinary officials in white protective suits and masks culled thousands of chickens at a farm in the far northwestern Nigerian state of Sokoto after bird flu was detected there for the first time.

Nigeria is one of three countries regarded by experts as the weakest areas in the global attempt to stem infections among birds and head off a potentially devastating human flu pandemic.

The disease was first discovered a year ago in the northern state of Kaduna and it spread rapidly to most parts of the country in the first week despite culling and quarantines.




The 2007 winter flu season likely will be give us a better idea just how bad the situation really is.

Do you know which other two "of three countries regarded by experts as the weakest areas in the global attempt to stem infections among birds" they're talking about in the link?

If you have anything on canine carriers, let me know. We just got seven new ones.

I knew about the cats; already in the first year of bird flu they had to put away more than 20 big beautiful Bengali tigers in the local zoo here.

BTW... another BIG CONGRATULATIONS.
