BANGKOK, Jan 17 (TNA) – The chief of the Department of Livestock Development ordered his officials nationwide to be on alert to prevent the outbreak of avian influenza.

 

Sorawit Thaneeto, director-general of the department, made the order after the World Health Organization had reported that the H5N6 avian influenza erupted in China where five people were infected and two of them died.

 

The director-general said that he ordered local officials to closely visit poultry farms and monitor animal diseases in border areas.

I read last week that over 500 Million Pigs had so far been Slaughtered toi try and stop the ASF in China.

And Thailand is experiencing record high Pork prices

Wonder why

No more domestic pigs, wild pigs, pet pigs. No more chickens, no more songbirds, no more seabirds. Destruction of species is the fruit of greed & overpopulation. Better get used to it.

 

Humans can't catch swine flu but bird flu is deadly.

The Mayo Clinic (https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/bird-flu/symptoms-causes/syc-20368455) says -

Although bird flu may kill more than half the people it infects, the number of fatalities is still low because so few people have had bird flu. Fewer than 500 bird flu deaths have been reported to the World Health Organization since 1997.

In contrast, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that seasonal influenza is responsible for thousands of deaths each year in the United States alone.
