    China reports outbreak of deadly bird flu among chickens in Hunan province

    China has reported an outbreak of the deadly H5N1 bird flu in Hunan province, which lies on the southern border of Hubei province, the epicentre of the rapidly spreading coronavirus.

    “The outbreak occurred in a farm in the Shuangqing district of Shaoyang city. The farm has 7,850 chickens, and 4,500 of the chickens have died from the contagion. Local authorities have culled 17,828 poultry after the outbreak,” according to a statement by China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs on Saturday.

    No human cases of the Hunan H5N1 virus has been reported.

    The Hunan H5N1 outbreak comes even as the Chinese authorities continue to scramble to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, further stretching the nation’s already heavily strained resources needed to combat the health threats.


    The H5N1 avian flu virus, often called bird flu, causes severe respiratory disease in birds and is contagious to humans. The virus was first detected in 1996 in geese in China and is especially deadly for poultry.

    It is possible, but difficult, to transmit bird flu from person to person, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

    H5N1 - China (Bird Flu)

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/china-rep...213148810.html

    As if health officials in China don't have enough on their hands with a spreading coronavirus, now officials announced an outbreak of bird flu.
    China's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs announced Saturday an outbreak of a highly pathogenic strain of H5N1 bird flu at a farm in the southern province of Hunan.
    The virus was discovered on a farm with nearly 8,000 chickens - more than half of them have already died because of the outbreak.
    China is not alone in trying to tamp down the spread of this virus.
    Earlier this week authorities in India started culling chickens and destroying eggs to contain the bird flu virus.
    And a different strain - the H5N8 virus - has spread throughout eastern Europe in recent weeks.
    A bird flu outbreak in China back in 2013 ended up costing $6.5 billion in economic losses, according to U.N. experts.

    and it does not even matter who's.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    The Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) of China has approved the import of live chickens from the US after farmers across the country were ordered to cull tens of millions of chickens because of the Covid-19 outbreak.
    The MOA had banned poultry meat imports from the US in 2015 due to avian influenza threats.
    As a concession for the phase one trade deal, China had lifted poultry meat import bans and now has allowed the import of live chickens, reported the Financial Times.
    Beijing allowing the MOA to approve the import of live chickens is mostly because the mass culling has led to a sharp increase in prices. At the moment, China isn't just facing a shortage of food, but also an economic crisis, and couple both of those together, the real threat of protests and riots in many cities, some larger than NYC, could be nearing.


    "There is no question China's chicken population will fall sharply in the coming months," said Qiu Cong of Jinghai Poultry Industry Group. "The chicks are gone and farmers are struggling to make ends meet."
    A report by Wang Zhongqiang, a former director at the China Animal Husbandry Association, and Ning Zhonghua, a professor at China Agricultural University, said farmers had culled upwards of 100 million young chickens since the virus broke out. Though the figure is approximately 1% of China's annual production of 9.3 billion chickens, it's currently having an impact on prices.
