DId you see the crews in Turkey in their protective suits? Going from flock to flock to flock killing birds. Do ya think maybe that THEY help to spread it across the country?

When we had avian flu several years back, the inspectors would go from farm to farm to inspect the chicken flocks.  They had protective gear, but no respirators, and cleaned up after each inspection.

After awhile, the farmers started to notice that if their flock was clean, shortly after inspection the birds come down with the flu.

Eventually, a couple of farmers wouldn't allow the inspectors into their houses, but would bring the birds to them.  Those farms stayed free of the flu.

Bottom line was that the inspectors were infecting other flocks by breathing.  The virus was in their lungs and was spread to other flocks.  They didn't inspect too many flocks up close and personal.
Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

"Somewhat concerned" got my vote.  It will be more of a concern if it mutates so that it can be spread by human to human contact, of course.

I thought that I heard that it had been found in the migratory bird population in Canada, but I haven't heard that mentioned recently.  If it spread to the bird population here it might cause people to give some thought to hygiene around their bird feeders.
