Highly-Pathogenic-Avian-Influenza-H3N8 is a virus that affects birds and can potentially be transmitted to humans. This strain of avian influenza was first identified in Europe in 2016 and has since spread to other regions of the world.

The virus is highly contagious and can be transmitted through direct contact with infected birds, their droppings, or contaminated surfaces. It can lead to severe respiratory illness and even death in birds. In humans, the symptoms can range from mild to severe respiratory illness.

As a result of its potential threat, many countries have implemented strict measures to control and prevent the spread of the virus. These measures include quarantine of infected areas, culling of infected birds, and strict import/export regulations.

It’s important to be aware of Highly-Pathogenic-Avian-Influenza-H3N8 and take necessary precautions when handling birds or visiting areas with known outbreaks. If you suspect you or your birds may have been infected with the virus, seek medical assistance immediately. With proper awareness and prevention measures, we can limit the spread of this dangerous virus.
