  • Egypt - Veterinary Services explains efforts to control avian flu with the onset of winter - November 20, 2016 H5N1? H5N8?

    There are no more Ministry of Agriculture monthly reports appearing in the media that give the count of "foci" (outbreaks) of avian flu in poultry. The government is controlling the media 100%. Publishing negative news is punishable as a crime against the government.

    All we have are pseudo announcements like this one about the avian flu prevention efforts. Apparently avian flu is a major threat but there is no data to quantify the problem.

    We can only guess.....
