Outbreaks were occurring in 2009 too. Its time to roll the H5N1 into the yearly flu vax, along with COVID boosters if the tech can be mixed.

The real story here is that chicken is gonna be more expensive and harder to get.
 
2022-04-07 11:22:38 AM  
A little horse paste will clear that right up. Why yes, I am talking orders!

Quit farking them chickens.
 
2022-04-07 11:23:13 AM  
Horse meds won't help here, a guy at work says you gotta get the chicken meds.
 
2022-04-07 11:23:17 AM  
Welp, I don't feel like chicken tonight anymore.
Can we just declare the 2020s a complete sh*t-show & hibernate for the remaining seven years?
 
2022-04-07 11:23:21 AM  
It's largely blamed on bird migration.

Gotdamn migrants! I bet they're coming in from the south too!
 
2022-04-07 11:23:36 AM  
Meh, something for the CDC to keep an eye on, but until it makes a jump from one human to another, it's really only a worry for poultry farmers.

More than 24.8 million birds from commercial and backyard flocks have been put down to prevent the virus's spread.


...and we can't do that with rednecks because...?

it's not that cut and dry unfortunately. the current shiat show began in 2015.
 
2022-04-07 11:28:31 AM  
At the rate we're going, just wait 'til bird COVID hits.
 
2022-04-07 11:30:16 AM  
I'm fine with this. The fewer of us around, the better it would seem.
 
2022-04-07 11:30:50 AM  
So, will the bird flu vaccine contain 5G Ultra Wide? Because I'm looking for an upgrade.

If there is a vaccine this could be a good thing long term.

Okay, but 90% of the people who get it are going to be anti-vaxxer, anti-masker f*ckwits.  That's a herd that could use a good thinning.

A 60% mortality rate is too high for the disease to spread among humans.

I asked a similar question when tRump got elected.

Right about Ebola's mortality rate.  This'll be fun...Let's see which sectors of America's political spectrum will argue against masks and vaccines.

How do you figure?  People are so stupid they're literally taking horse deworming medication because some moron told them that it will protect them from a virus.  Unless it kills so fast that people don't have time to transmit it, the mortality rate won't really matter in terms of the transmission rate.
 
2022-04-07 11:44:05 AM  
From what I've been conservatived over the last two years, outbreaks don't exist.

Cant let the panic and fear machines stop!  Keep 'em rollin!  There's money to be made!

And a post after mine just proved me right.
 
2022-04-07 11:46:07 AM  
If so, we're screwed, because apparently at least 40% of U.S. adults don't believe in germs and vaccines are poison, so ... nice knowing some of you. The rest ... meh.
 
2022-04-07 11:46:07 AM

I guess I'll be fine here in the country of North America.

For nearly 7 decades we have been training and preparing for that awful day when Russia nukes us. And now, when we are practically at the doorstep of intercontinental nuclear war you suddenly decide that it wouldnt be prudent to duck and cover?

What's the conspiracy here? Is there some Chicken Anthony Fauci out there telling chickens they should get vaccinated because something something Chicken Bill Gates?

Not by much, 25M birds is about what we slaughter on an average day in the US so this years supply is down < 0.3% so far.

Ask Drew what his angle is.  Probably has something to do with getting free drinks.

SomeAmerican: A 60% mortality rate is too high for the disease to spread among humans.


The 60% is the human mortality rate.  From what I'm reading, among birds it varies wildly by species.  For instance sparrows are effectively toast if they get it (90%+ mortality), pigeons are barely affected though can transmit easily, wild ducks are something like 30-40%, and in chicken/duck/turkey farms it goes in waves of sometimes low to sometimes high (we've had studies on this strain for 20+ years).  This strain is transmissible to pigs, dogs, and cats, but rarely spreads from there.  Haven't found much info about mortality of this strain on those critters yet, only about other strains.

Also, transmissibility among humans is crazy low.  It's already incredibly rare to be infected, but even more rare to pass it on.
