Migratory Birds Not Spreading Bird Flu

Some good news about the H5N1 bird flu: it can’t be spread by a lot of birds. This information can change, but I hope that this is a fact.

Migratory birds would obviously spread the virus faster than birds that like to stay at home.

”There has never been any conclusive, properly documented evidence that wild birds are carriers of the virus,” Richard Thomas, editor of ‘World Birdwatch,’ said in an e-mail interview. ”Tens of thousands of healthy, wild, migrant waterfowl in Hong Kong have been tested over the last decade, yet there is not a single positive-for-H5N1 amongst them.”
