VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan 24 (Reuters) - Tests have confirmed an outbreak of bird flu at a turkey farm near Vancouver, but it appeared to be a less virulent strain and posed little risk to humans, officials said on Saturday.
Tests on sickened birds showed they had H5 avian influenza, but it will be another day or more before the exact strain of the virus is known and its pathogenicity, the agency said
"Nobody has been infected by the virus," said Elizabeth Brodkin, medical officer of the Fraser Health Authority.
