4 Brits have the Bird-Flu. Then, 9 Brits down with Bird-Flu. Now its 11 Brits with Bird-Flu!!

At first it was announced that 4 Brits have the Bird-Flu.

Then, we were told that 9 Brits were down with Bird-Flu.

Now it is confirmed that at least 11 Brits have the H7N2 strain of the Bird-Flu!!

No need to worry though?

BBC reports that the officials investigating two possible cases of bird flu in north Wales have traced 26 people who may have been in contact with the disease.

Eleven of these people have shown flu-like symptoms, but none has been seriously ill.


Officials said there was not a “significant risk” to public health.

Four people, two from Wales and two from north-west England,

have been found to have contracted bird flu following the outbreak at Corwen.

A further four are being treated as having had the disease.

The latest figures come as officials examine two properties.

The confirmed case involved a smallholding at Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr, near Cerrigydrudion, Conwy.

Owners Tony Williams and Barbara Cowling, who have tested negative for the virus, called in a vet after their Rhode Island Red chickens began to die.

The real story in all this however, is that the infected chickens were bought from the Chelford Market at Macclesfield, Cheshire, some 70 miles (112 km) away, on 7 May.

So the Bird-Flu is not limited to the outbreak at Corwen in Wales!!!!
