Ministry Discloses Detection of Signs of Avian Flu in Ethiopia - ERTA February 28
The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development disclosed signs of avian flu have been observed in Endibir woreda of the South State.
Information and Public Relations Bureau Head with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development Mulugeta Debalkew said Monday that the bird-flu-like disease has been observed in Gubere Poultry Center in the stated woreda and the laboratory test carried out locally has indicated the existence of a bird-flue-like disease.
Time for some quick background reading on H5N1. Does anyone know a good place to start?
UPDATE: Thanks Segolene - anyone interested in finding out more about the flu shold go to the World Health Organization.
