Chickens Destroyed By the Thousands as Bird Flu Threatens Hong Kong

Thousands of chickens were destroyed after bird flu is discovered in Hong Kong.

The territory’s Director of Agriculture, Fisheries & Conservation declared the Cheung Sha Wan Temporary Wholesale Poultry Market an infected place, the government said in a statement.
Local farmers will be prevented from sending chickens to the market for 21 days.
The government said that it was working to trace the origin of the chicken, which was infected with the H5N1 avian influenza virus, but that it did not know at this point whether it was from a local farm or imported.
