The influenza (flu) strain known as “bird flu,” commonly referred to as “avian flu,” primarily affects wild water birds but can also infect domestic birds (poultry) and other animals.

Anyone who has typically come into touch with contaminated birds, whether dead or alive, is among the affected parties.

The symptoms of bird flu cannot be used to diagnose it. Your doctor might take a sample from your throat or nose.

The Food and Drug Administration stated that they were unsure of the risk of contracting the virus by eating raw or unpasteurized dairy products.
