A Suffolk farm, where 2,600 turkeys were killed by flu, has been confirmed to have been killed by H5N1. An area of radius 10km has been put on
surveillance, with a 3km radius protection area.
The avian flu which killed 2,600 turkeys at a Suffolk farm has been confirmed as the H5N1 virus.
That strain can be fatal if it is passed on to humans but experts said the outbreak was being contained and posed little danger to people.
They may say this is being contained and is of little danger to people, but we don't know when it could mutate to be fatal to people and carry
between them. In fact, could someone not be able to carry the disease, rather than be taken ill by it, and then infect people later?
And if they have got the building sealed and secure, why do they need such a large area to be watched? The virus can be airborne, but surely then it
could go anywhere, not just ten kilometers.
