There is an outbreak of bird flu all over India and thousands of birds have died.

Asian H5N1 aka bird flu, is a virus that passes through birds and humans. Bird flu has been around since the late 1800s, but in China where it was first detected in geese. It has traveled around primarily Asia, but it has also been found in Africa, Europe, and the middle east.


Right now the numbers are not so bad but you should still take precautions, like wear a mask, don't go out unnecessarily, and stay away from people if you are sick.


How I know this, there are the signs that AES have been putting up signs. The signs come with precautions, symptoms, and what bird flu is.


You shouldn't eat raw eggs or raw chicken because that is another way of transmission.


If you still want to learn more about bird flu, visit the WHO to find out more.
