South Korea reports new bird flu outbreak (Yes another one)

SEOUL, April 9 (Reuters) - South Korea reported a new outbreak of bird flu on Wednesday at a duck farm in the same southwest area where workers in the past week have culled about half a million poultry at three other infected farms.

The latest outbreak was in Jeongeup, the agriculture ministry said, adding it was investigating possible outbreaks at 10 other farms in the area about 220 km (140 miles) south of Seoul.

That makes two outbreaks in less than a week. Millions of birds will end up being culled. Even if it doesn't infect any people the lack of poultry is going to send its price skyrocketing and result in hungry people who can't afford it.
