Did you know that 25 percent of all egg production in the United States has already been taken offline due to the bird flu crisis? You aren’t hearing much about this in the mainstream media, but at this point bird flu has claimed the lives of 45 million chickens and turkeys in America. When I wrote about this a month ago, the number of dead birds was sitting at about 20 million. In just 30 days, the death toll has risen by an astounding 20 million. This is a major crisis and it is already causing egg shortages around the country, and yet very few people seem alarmed about this? Why is that?
And it isn’t just one strain of the bird flu virus that we are talking about. Right now, there are two strains which are spreading like wildfire.
So far, the H5N2 strain has hit the states of Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Arkansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Idaho, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin. It has also been identified in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and British Columbia.
The H5N8 strain has not been doing quite as much damage yet, but it has been killing birds in California, Idaho, Indiana, Oregon and Washington.
In addition, Canadian officials have discovered that the H5N1 strain is spreading in British Columbia.
