WHO AI Up-to-date Information

For up-to-date information on Avien Influenza in the world, we can recommend the World Health Organisation website, and in particular http://www.who.int/influenza/human_animal_interface/en/ gives access to a range of information about avian influenza.  

Avian Influenza is what is called a zoonotic disease, i.e. a disease that can not only affect animals but also people.  In the case of Avian Influenza, only specific strains (in particular H5N1 and H5N9) may also make humans sick. Even those strains are not very contageous for humans and transmission requires close contact with infected birds.
