So here’s the deal. Some turkeys on a farm in Suffolk got sick and died. The authorities tested the turkeys and found they had H5N1. So they have quarantined the farm, cancelled bird shows and they are going to kill about 159,000 more turkeys.
The thing is that the bird flu is still just that – bird flu. Not one single limey human has died of bird flu, limeys don’t normally live with their poultry. And please keep in mind that still, worldwide, only 165 people have died of avian influenza and the virus has not mutated so that it can be passed from human to human.
Pas de panique, svp.
