From the Jerusalem Post:
"South Korea has killed nearly 100,000 chickens and ducks to try to prevent the spread of bird flu after an outbreak of the deadly H5N1 strain at a chicken farm last week, officials said Monday.
Quarantine officials have killed 96,000 poultry within a 500-meter (1,650-foot) radius of the outbreak site in Iksan, about 250 kilometers (155 miles) south of Seoul, the Agriculture Ministry said.
South Korea plans to cull a total of 236,000 birds and an unspecified number of other animals like pigs, dogs and cats in the area by Thursday, the ministry said. It also plans to destroy some 6 million eggs.
Officials determined Saturday that the outbreak was caused by the H5N1 virus and began culling birds Sunday."
Either South Korea is hyper-sensitive about this, or the outbreak wasn't contained at the farm. Interesting that the won't specify the numbers of other animals they are going to put to slaughter.
Has there been signs of infection in other animals? If there is, South Korea should be letting the world know. How quickly does it spread? Its 500-meters now, how big is the radius going to be a week from now?
