Winnipeg Manitoba, Canada.
Officials from Health Canada are scrambling to deal with the sudden death of 10′s of thousands of wild birds somewhere in the province. Officials dodged local reporters who were removed from outside the Level-4 Canada Science center. Thisis is the first time in the history of the Level-4 facility that a full mobilization has been initiated.
Local reports have circulated that an extremely virulent strain of bird flu has infected both wild and farm birds. At the same time an extremely aggressive winter flu has hit Canada sometime in December and mortality rates are expected to rise alarmingly in vulnerable populations.
Health Canada sure went dark quick on this one. CBC radio reporter was escorted off the Winnipeg Canada Science center. I have on email that said it was turkeys and chickens but no further confirmation.
