South Korea confirms new bird flu outbreak


www.alertnet.org

SEOUL, April 7 (Reuters) - South Korea on Monday confirmed a new outbreak of bird flu at a duck farm in the southwest and said it was investigating two other possible cases days after reporting an outbreak at a nearby chicken farm.

Quarantine workers had started culling 6,500 ducks at the Jeongeup farm, where 6,000 poultry have died since last week, and destroyed thousands of birds which had already been sent elsewhere, the Farm Ministry said.

As fast as this stuff kills the birds let hope it does not jump species before we have a vaccine ready. We might find ourselves culling people without one.

It has already jumped, it was in the news jut last week that bird flu can jump directly to dogs.

/Certainly not a 1 line post.

I think that was in Korea where they farm dogs for food and fur. It would be horrible if it came to the states, as our dogs are members of our families and live in closer proximity to us than poultry. It would be a much easier jump from dog to human than bird to human.
