As H5N1 Bird Flu Spreads To More States, Many Are Wondering What Will Happen If People Start Getting Infected…

Do you LOVE America?


    This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

    I have been watching the H5N1 bird flu for a very long time.  Many of my readers don’t even know this, but many years ago I actually had an entire website that was dedicated to tracking the latest news regarding bird flu.

    Fortunately, H5N1 hasn’t been a significant threat for ages, but now it is back.  It is spreading very rapidly in birds in North America right now, and some experts are concerned that it could mutate into a version that could begin spreading easily in humans.  If that happens, it would make the COVID pandemic look like a bad joke in comparison, because the death rate for H5N1 in humans is extremely high.

    Over the past several days, we have received some really troubling news about the spread of bird flu inside the United States.

    For example, bird flu has now been detected in a “non-commercial backyard flock” in Suffolk County, New York.  The following comes from the official USDA website

    The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has confirmed the presence of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in a non-commercial backyard flock (non-poultry) in Suffolk County, New York.

    Samples from the flock were tested at the Cornell University Animal Health Diagnostic Center, part of the National Animal Health Laboratory Network, and confirmed at the APHIS National Veterinary Services Laboratories (NVSL) in Ames, Iowa.

    APHIS is working closely with state animal health officials in New York on a joint incident response. State officials quarantined the affected premises, and birds on the properties will be depopulated to prevent the spread of the disease. Birds from the flock will not enter the food system.

    And the USDA is also telling us that bird flu has also popped up in the state of Maine for the first time…

    Inspectors with a U.S. Department of Agriculture service have confirmed the presence of the avian influenza in what they describe as a “non-commercial backyard flock (non-poultry)” in Knox County.

    Officials with the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) are now working with Maine animal health officials to quarantine the affected property.

    In addition, we have just learned that  “a fourth commercial poultry flock in southern Indiana” has been hit…

    Avian influenza has been detected in a fourth commercial poultry flock in southern Indiana, state officials said Saturday.

    Laboratory testing of a second commercial flock of turkeys in Greene County has come back as presumptively positive for the virus, the Indiana State Board of Animal Health said. The samples are being verified at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Veterinary Services Laboratory in Iowa.

    Authorities are doing their best to try to prevent this outbreak from spreading, but it is clearly out of control at this point.

    So far, bird flu has actually been detected in wild birds in a total of nine different states

    As of Saturday, over 240 wild birds in South and North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Georgia, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Delaware and Florida had been found to be infected with Eurasian H5 HPAI, with a number of cases specified as H5N1.

    Poultry farmers are on high alert all over the nation, because a single case can often mean that an entire flock must be put down.

    And the more we lose, the higher chicken prices will go.

    But of much greater concern is the possibility that the virus could mutate and start spreading among humans

    “An increase in poultry outbreaks inevitably brings the virus into closer and more frequent proximity to humans, which is always a risk with viruses like influenza that can rapidly evolve,” Dr. Holly Shelton, head of the Influenza Viruses Group at The Pirbright Institute, told The Telegraph.

    If H5N1 were to start spreading as widely as COVID has among humans, the death toll would be absolutely catastrophic.

    Since 2003, more than half of all human cases of H5N1 have died

    Some 864 human infections and 456 deaths with the H5N1 subtype have been reported in 19 countries since 2003.

    Over the past couple of years, there has just been one crisis after another, and we truly are in the midst of a “perfect storm”.

    But a bird flu pandemic would definitely take things to an entirely new level.

    So let us hope that this current outbreak can be brought under control, and let us hope that H5N1 doesn’t start spreading among humans any time soon.

      1. 1st!

      2. All we can hope for is that the bird flu picks up where Covid has left off. If there is any justice in this world, the MAGA shitheads, Covid-deniers, anti-vaxxers, and fascists will all meet their ultimate demise because of it.

        Let’s Go Covid!


        Let’s Go Bird Flu!

        • i’ll say the same to all of you sheeple when your immune systems folds on itself. seems we all want each other dead. what a pleasant society our globalists owned elected traitors let manifest. “hope and change” and “unity” have prevailed, NOT!

          • bingo . give that man a cigar

        • You sir. . . .are an ass.

        • Whatever anyones opinion is on Covid doesn’t give you the right to wish death on peoples with one that differs from yours. I have yet to read any article or any comments attached to it that the author or commenters wished death on people who live and breathe for the vaxx. Personally I’m not vaxxed and I had it twice. I got it from my wife, who IS vaxxed. A lot of people won’t get the vax mainly cause there’s just not enough to know about it, OTHER THAN IT APPEARS THAT MANY ARE GETTING SICK AND SOME HAVE DIED FROM IT. And did we all forget about the millions of people who were supposed to die from it here in America? I think maybe 10% of the estimate actually passed. And who knows if they died from Covid. That was a big big payday for the hospitals. Or maybe they died cause they werent treated properly while they were in the hospital. If you’re gonna spew hate, roll a fatty, head down to the corner with your cardboard sign, your cup and all of your unemployed basement dwellers and surround yourself with it. I’m guessin you don’t have many friends.

        • Psychology of internet trolls: They understand what hurts people but simply don’t care
          Psychological studies show trolls tend to be male, show higher levels of psychopathy traits — low levels of empathy, guilt and responsibility for their actions — and higher levels of sadism traits, the enjoyment of causing others physical and psychological pain.

          You are a sick person that need mental health. Please get some. I will pray for you, that you find help and healing.
          You also have no understanding of disease, how it spreads want who it kills. Educate yourself, being an ignorant troll will only ruin your life, not others.

          • Sounds like Narcissistic Personality disorder.

            • Or, just an another asshole that enjoys inflicting pain and misery.

      3. The question is: Are authorities using the same test that doesn’t test for a virus? e.g. PCR test? Perhaps just an avenue to destroy our food supply. Is Mad Cow disease going to make a comeback as well? Swine Flu?

      4. What is a non-poultry backyard flock?

        • Yea I was thinkin the same thing. They said “non poultry” so why don’t they just say what it was? My guess is that it’s something that most don’t eat and it’s an opportunity to hand out some fear porn.

      5. There goes the chicken and turkey industries. Along with lack of expensive fertilizers, non planting…good luck this spring.

        • Jininva – Was thinking the same thing, probably will soon be hearing that huge numbers of poultry have to be destroyed, and of course a big increase in poultry and egg prices. Maybe next the health nazis will be requiring poultry processing facilities to close down, and a quarantine of poultry process workers. I have neighbors that have chickens in their yards, guess they’ll be told to kill and bury their chickens and geese. Isn’t it odd no matter the problem or crisis, no matter how unrelated, it appears the foods supply and food industries are impacted the most frequently, especially that of meat.
          Covid isn’t quite getting the job done, and too many people are on to the covid hoax. Now, all of a sudden one disease after another is appearing, each said to be more contagious and lethal than the last. No doubt more “vaccines” are in the works.

        • Look on the positive side, most Americans need to lose weight anyway.

          • On the down side…
            You will not eat or at least not like you used to. If you don’t eat, you don’t do things like you used to do. It makes it very difficult to do manual labor without something [nutritious] in your stomach. “An army marches on it stomach.” Well, you are basically the same. You don’t do much of anything without food (and water).

      6. i’ll say the same to all of you sheeple when your immune systems folds on itself. seems we all want each other dead. what a pleasant society our globalists owned elected traitors let manifest. “hope and change” and “unity” have prevailed, NOT!

      7. The local pd showed a nice fb promotonal vid, in which they rescue a kitten from a tree.

        A dissident responded with film of them culling asymptomatic birds and wrecking farm equipment, in the name of Newscastle.

        My grandma got shot at for taking (somebody’s) apples, in the old country.

        When they showed us the (now cliched) Thief in the Night series, at church, a Boss-Hogg-looking guy is filling boxes, out of their pantry.

        Creeping communism, now under the guise of WEF and CV19, always eventually wants to take the food, kids, land, and means of production, in every iteration, every country, every time. Avian food is an excuse to waste animal life, meant for the dinner table. They’ll kill it, before it dies by itself.

        • typo — avian flu

        • typo — avian flu

      8. So the chickens aren’t coming home to roost?

        • I’d say they will.
          But will we be too afraid to enjoy some “Finger-Lickin-Good” food? Or will we even be able to, provided some agent of the Gov says so?
          Only time will tell.
