Four countries report avian flu outbreaks in poultry

In the latest avian flu developments in poultry, China reported a highly pathogenic H7N9 outbreak in zoo birds, Nepal reported three more highly pathogenic H5N1 outbreaks, Iraq reported an event involving highly pathogenic H5N8, and Cambodia reported three outbreaks involving low-pathogenic H7N4.

So far it’s not known if the virus that caused the Cambodian outbreak is related to a human infection from a novel H7N4 virus reported in China in 2018.
