Usually cases of bird flu in humans comes directly from infected birds.  In this case, the infection is believed to have come from an infected cow.  This iteration is Type A H5N1, which is extremely rare in humans in the US.

QuoteIt's only the second time a person in the United States has been diagnosed with what's known as Type A H5N1 virus. In 2022, a prison inmate in a work program picked it up while killing infected birds at a poultry farm in Montrose County, Colorado.

Might be nothin'.  Might not.

"Fragments of bird flu virus genome found in pasteurized milk, FDA says.
The test cannot tell if the virus is live. FDA still considers milk supply safe."

Definitely need to keep an eye on this.

I found this article very helpful. It contains a number of useful resources, including a dynamic (continually updated as information become available) map showing the progression of the outbreak.  Northern Texas/New Mexico/Oklahoma and Michigan seem to be hot spots. 

This is worse than authorities and the mainstream news media are letting on.

I expect a lot more media suppression as we approach the election. Anything that appears that it hasn't been handled and in control will be minimized.

So, what's our defense if this does proliferate?

Several outlets are reporting a steep rise in demand for raw milk as people believe that infected raw milk will give them immunity.  This has the potential to develop mutation that can spread from person to person, which would be bad news.  Additionally, the World Health Organization has identified 889 human cases since 2003, of which 463 died, meaning the mortality rate in humans is about 52%.

Any strains that mutate to spread in human populations will be included in the annual flu vaccine.  Bird flu is not a novel virus, so we already know how to make vaccines for it, we just have to keep up with mutations.  In the meantime, avoid potential vectors of infection, practice proper food handling, and practice good personal hygiene.
