Penn Vet Breaking News

  • Avian Influenza

    Avian influenza,a respiratory disease that affects many birds, including poultry, has been detected in the United States.

    Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) recently has been detected in commercial poultry, backyard poultry flocks, and wild birds in several states.

    No human infections have yet been reported in relation to this latest outbreak. Generally, human infections with avian influenza viruses are rare, and most often occur after people are in direct or close contact with an infected bird. Biosecurity is key in protecting flocks.
