According to AGDay (my go to source for most agriculture matters) it has effected 35 countries!!!!!!!!!
Although not all of the same strain:
In the US the majority have been of the H5N2 strain but there has been reports of H5N8
H5N8 was reported LAST year in:
H5N1 strain showed up in 2004 and also infected people -- especially in Chona (remember that scare?!)
But it is STILL being found in:
Middle East (splatterings)
Losses due to AVian Flu in MN & IA ALONE could cost over $1BILLION!!!!
There have been killed/died/slaughtered over 37million birds so far in 15 states! Granted the MAJORITY of these deaths were done in hopes of preventing the spread of the disease
You all know what this means?
More for the food .... More for the products ....
