57,000 birds to be killed due to new outbreak of avian flu in Iowa, USA

Bird Flu

Two more cases of bird flu have been found at Iowa turkey farms.
 
The Iowa Agriculture Department announced Monday that the avian influenza had been confirmed at a farm in Hamilton County with 36,000 turkeys and that a preliminary test for the disease was positive at a Calhoun County farm with 21,000 birds. A federal lab in Ames will test the Calhoun County samples.
 
Once the flu is confirmed at a farm, all the birds are euthanized.
 
The Agriculture Department says the virus has infected poultry at farms with more than 26 million birds.
