Avian flu has struck flocks in over 40 states, more than twice the number of states in previous outbreaks. Wild birds continue to spread HPAI [highly pathogenic avian influenza] throughout the country as they migrate, so preventing contact between domestic flocks and wild birds is critical to protecting US poultry, Rosemary Sifford, USDA chief veterinary officer, via BBC. Authorities have warned that while the risk to humans remains low, safety measures should be taken near birds. On November 3, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advised Americans to take "preventative measures." . This applies not just to workplace or wildlife settings, but potentially to household settings where people have backyard flocks or pet birds with potential exposures to wild or domestic infected birds, Rosemary Sifford, USDA chief veterinary officer, via BBC. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), only 868 cases of transmission from birds to humans were recorded between 2003 and 2022. . The current outbreak has contributed to the rising price of poultry, with the American Farm Bureau saying the average price of a turkey has risen 21% compared to last year. Meanwhile, record avian flu outbreaks have also been recorded in the U.K., Europe, Africa and Asia in 2022
