UK, Holland, Germany, Israel, Russia and South Korea rush to contain Avian Flu outbreaks culling hundreds of thousands of birds

Avian flu outbreaks
It seems we jump from one outbreak to another... Highly infectious bird flu virus are currently sweeping across Europe, infecting thousands of animals in Germany, the Netherlands, UK and further east in Russia, Israel and South Korea.

Germany and The Netherlands

Two poultry farms in Holland and Germany have been attacked by H5N8, forcing the culling of more than 200,000 chickens in Puiflijk, the Netherlands.

These Dutch farms are just 30km (19 miles) from the German border. The main risk is that the infection spread out-of-control on both sides.

Although the H5N8 bird flu strain isn't too dangerous for humans, its economic cost can be significant. People should avoid touching sick or dead birds. Chicken and eggs are safe to eat if cooked thoroughly.
