Outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses have been reported thus far this year in flocks in Nigeria, Indonesia, Iraq, and Burkina Faso (all H5N1), Hungary, USA, and China (H5N8), Mexico (H7N3), and Taiwan (H5N2). In Viet Nam, H5N6 is epizootic. The disease has affected humans in Egypt (H5N1) and China (H5N6 and H7N9). In March, U.S. researchers reported that two flu strains (H10N8 and H6N1), had begun causing sporadic infections among people on the Chinese mainland and in Taiwan, but were still not able to infect humans easily.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency's National Centre for Foreign Animal Disease reported recently that the HPAI H5N2 virus detected in poultry in British Columbia was sequenced and found to contain gene segments from the HPAI Eurasian H5N8 virus, terming this the first time a "Eurasian lineage highly pathogenic H5 virus has caused an outbreak of avian influenza in poultry in North America." In the US, every day brings news of new sites in the current outbreak of H5N2. Since March, the virus has led to the loss of well over 30 million birds in 13 states. The pattern and speed of this outbreak's spread is causing scientists to re-think the assumption that avian influenza spreads solely through the intermingling of wild birds with domestic flocks.
