Bird flu: Culling to begin at Nafferton farm by Wenchen

The H5N8 outbreak in the Netherlands caused the people there to seal off the affected areas. Poultry exports are banned. Farmers with the infected birds are forced to kill them to limit the spread of the virus. Other farmers are hoping that it is an isolated outbreak so that the virus will not spread to their farms.

In my opinion, I agree that people should shut down the affected farms and ban poultry exports until the outbreak is concluded even though there is no human case. It is because that the virus has a potential to spread to humans, causing severe illness and death. Since the flu season is approaching, we must gear up.
