only a matter of time H5N1 comes to the Western Hemisphere ?
But we have separate evolution of avian influenza in the American and Eurasian worldsince at least ~100 years. The viruses usually don't mix.In fact, that rare mixing may produce new pandemic viruses in humans.
—————————————————–how does H5N1 transmit ?
they can't figure it out …In those chicken farms and turkey farms, they should know it, but once I searchedfor it and couldn't find it. Presumably respiratory, chicken breathing, but I'm not sure.——————————————————it goes back from chickens to wild birds ?
yes, but I assume it's rare. And then it's no longer waterborn as the originalflu in mallards and other waterfowl. It goes to usual species like geese,swans————————————————-
