So that answers the question of "was it contained," what about it's specific type? I suppose we'll have to wait on that. Amidst the news of S.K.'s suspiciously odd culling of dogs and cats comes a news flash to you, straight from all that is pure and untainted, Reuters AlertNet:
"SEOUL, Nov 28 (Reuters) - South Korea's farm ministry said on Tuesday it had found a suspected case of highly pathogenic bird flu at a second poultry farm, after confirming on Saturday it had its first outbreak in three years of the H5N1 strain.
The ministry said about 200 chickens at a farm near where the first case had been found in North Cholla province had died this week. The farms in the southwest of the country lie on a path for migratory birds.
"The results of our testing should be known late this afternoon," said an official at the ministry.
The ministry is also checking to see if the H5N1 virus, which is potentially deadly to human beings, has spread through the country.
South Korea had by Monday completed culling 75,500 poultry within a 500 metre (1,640-ft) radius of the farm in North Cholla province about 170 km (100 miles) south from Seoul. It plans to destroy a remaining 160,500 birds in the same area by Thursday."
Why aren't they burning the bird carcasses? Shallow burials after killing them??? Are they nuts? BURN THE BIRDS you idiots!!
