Bird Flu in Europe

As the migrating birds arrive they are being blamed for transmitting H5N? (we don’t know the designation yet) from Holland to the UK.  A duck farm in Yorkshire is facing the slaughter of all its stock and there is an exclusion circle imposed.  It is good that action has been taken so quickly and the threat to the UK’s human population remains very low.  Outbreaks happen world wide on a regular basis.  Again there is no reason to suspect this will start an outbreak amongst humans.

I know it is never funny, but I couldn’t resist this cartoon!
