flu may have spread to new region in Canada
March 30, 2004, just-food.com:
A new farm has been placed under quarantine
in Canada. The latest case is bringing additional
woes to the country because it lies outside
the “hot zone,” a 5km quarantine
zone around the British Columbia farm where
the outbreak was first detected, and could
indicate the virus has spread.
Last week, Canadian officials announced
that more than 200,000 chickens would be
culled in a bid to stop the spread of the
disease. This week they wait to see if another
case has indeed emerged and then worry about
how to stop the spread.
