An update about the bird-flu in different countries

Posted: Updated:

It was three years ago that companies couldn't make face masks fast enough to keep them on store shelves -with a worldwide panic over the bird flu. Just as most have relaxed about that pandemic, the United Nations is warning there could be a major resurgence of it this year. Apparently, migrating birds are taking the illness to countries that have been virus-free for several years, like Israel, Nepal and Mongolia.  The United Nations says there are some countries like Egypt, China and India, that never experts say the fact that cases are not declining anymore could mean a flare-up of bird flu this fall and winter.   Especially among countries that were never completely rid of the virus- like Egypt, China and India.
