U.S. Death Toll Rises To 14.6 Million As The New Bird Flu Plague Spreads Like Wildfire All Over The Globe

Francesco Abbruzzino, The Uncensored Report, LLC

 

In the United States and all across the world, millions upon millions of chickens and turkeys are dying as a result of an absolutely horrifying new bird flu plague.  Considering the fact that global food supplies have become extremely tight and even Joe Biden is admitting that food shortages are looming, this is definitely something that we don’t need right now.  The very first confirmed case of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in a commercial flock in the U.S. was confirmed on February 8th, and in less than two months it has spread to facilities all over the nation.  Sadly, we have just learned that it has now even reached the top turkey-producing state in the entire country

 

For the first time, highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) was confirmed in Minnesota, the top turkey-producing state in the nation, said agricultural officials over the weekend. Some 14.6 million birds in domestic flocks have died of HPAI or in culling of infected herds to reduce the spread of the viral disease this year.

 

To me, that death toll is extremely alarming.

 

In less than two months, over 14 million chickens and turkeys in the United States have already been wiped out by this plague.

 

If things are this bad already, what will the total death toll look like six months from now?

One expert that was interviewed by NBC News says that he is anticipating an “explosion” of new cases in the weeks ahead…

 

The measures may do little to stop the spread of the virus, according to Henry Niman, a virologist and biochemist in Pittsburgh who has been tracking the bird flu’s spread. He is expecting an “explosion” of bird flu cases in birds in the coming weeks.

 

“This outbreak I think is likely going to be bigger than 2015,” he said, noting that the disease is already widespread in other regions of the world, such as Europe and Canada.

 

If he is correct, we are potentially facing a true national catastrophe.

 

Of course it isn’t just the U.S. that is dealing with this.  In Canada, HPAI has now been confirmed in southern Ontario

 

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says bird flu has been found at a poultry farm in southern Ontario.

 

The agency says the farm is under a strict quarantine, and the CFIA is establishing movement controls and recommending higher biosecurity at nearby farms.

Europe and Asia are being hit really hard as well.  For example, a new outbreak was just detected at a large facility in Bulgaria

 

An outbreak of bird flu on a Bulgarian farm with over 177,000 laying hens has forced authorities to begin slaughtering the remaining flock, the country’s food safety agency said on Monday.

 

The outbreak in the town of Asenovgrad is the sixth industrial farm hit by the highly pathogenic avian influenza type A in southern Bulgaria since December.

 

As you read this article, you may be wondering what this plague is going to do to the price of chicken and the price of turkey.

 

Needless to say, we are headed into unprecedented territory.  Just look at what happened to the price of chicken wings in just one week
