Confirmed case of bird flu in England

On Saturday, the European Commission confirmed the virus detected at a turkey farm in England is the H5N1 strain of avian influenza; however, further test will determine if it is the same strain as the Asian one. It is believed that 2,000 birds had already died of this virus before it was confirmed. As a preventive measure 160,000 turkeys were slaughtered at the Bernard Matthews farm.

Although authorities are reassuring the public that it’s safe to consume poultry, the H5N1 strain can be transmitted to humans and has killed more than 160 people worldwide since 2003, mostly in Asia.
