Bird Flu (H5N1) Strain in NWFP

Alas, the flu has permeated our ever-so impermeable borders of NWFP. I'm sure the guys in the NSA and CIA laugh with me.

Anyway, so it has arrived, the long awaited Bird Flu a la Pakistan. Chicken prices have dropped, causing a loss of about 1 Billion PK Rupees to the indutry (US$ 16,666,666 approx). Two chicken coops have been quarantined until the results of the test samples are verified by the World Reference Laboratory in Weybridge, UK.
