September 15, 2022

Cases of bird flu are spreading in the U.S. earlier than expected this year. A version of the avian flu was detected in a commercial flock of turkeys in August. Healthline reported the flock was “immediately quarantined” and euthanized to prevent disease transmission and poultry from the infected flock did not enter the food system. The Minnesota Board of Animal Health (MBAH) emphasized that biosecurity is paramount to stopping the spread of HPAI. “Flock owners large and small, from commercial operations to backyard flocks, should review their biosecurity measures to maintain the health of their birds,” the MBAH said in a statement. Healthline interviewed several experts for the bird flu story, including Carl Fichtenbaum, MD, of the Division of Infectious Diseases in the Department of Internal Medicine in the UC College of Medicine.
