Bird Flu in India, What is Avian Virus? why it bothers the nation? Because for most of mankind, avian flu (BIRD FLU)occurs mainly from birds (including Crows and Red Hen). Human beings are also at risk because humans engage with poultry feeder tanks as part of that same ritualistic practice mentioned above. And this isn’t just a disease affecting people; much of our food supply comes across these cages to slaughter chickens every year.

Officials said on Tuesday that at least six regions of India have made struggles to contain two varieties of bird flu – H5N1 and H5N8. And in recent days after the deaths of thousands of migratory birds, ducks, cattle, and poultry.
H5N8, an Avian influenza subtype among poultry and wild birds, has spread to many countries since the beginning of last year. Authorities in northern Himachal Pradesh say the bodies were found last week in a lake in the Himalayas examining flocks of migratory birds during the winter.
There will be a ban on the slaughter, sale, purchase. And export of any poultry, birds, fish of any kind and their related products, including eggs, meat, poultry at Fatehpur, Dehra, Jawali, and Indora portions.

human beings are also at risk because humans engage with poultry feeder tanks as part of that same ritualistic practice mentioned above. And this isn’t just a disease affecting people; much of our food supply comes across these cages to slaughter chickens every year. And authorities say the killing was ordered within one kilometer (0.6 miles) of the potential for the disease. In northern Haryana, government officials said that as many as 150,000 chickens had died mysteriously on many poultry farms in the Barwala district. Neighbor Punjab also reported similar deaths. More than 20 farms said their herds had been wiped out by an “unknown” disease and samples had been sent to laboratories for testing.
