Another development on the avian flu front. I have not heard of any flu outbreaks in Turkey so I imagine this is a precautionary measure. The BBC notes:
The decision came after Turkish authorities slaughtered up to 2,000 birds in the north-west of the country in an effort to control the disease.
As many as 1,500 turkeys are said to have died on a farm in the region.
It has not yet been confirmed if it’s HN51.
