Avian influenza, also known as “bird flu” is back and it’s allegedly in California, affecting poultry populations there. Avian influenza is a “highly pathogenic” viral disease that infects poultry and birds, and it is potentially transmissible to humans.
Cases have been detected by health “authorities” in San Benito County, according to local public health officials. The mainstream media and “officials” are still saying the risk to the public is low. However, the county’s Health and Human Services Agency is warning residents of the potential danger of handling or coming into close contact with a diseased or dead bird, the county said in a press release. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Bird flu viruses do not normally infect humans. However, sporadic human infections with bird flu viruses have occurred.”
