Following a second run of the tests conducted on ducks in central Illinois, reports have confirmed the presence of a low-pathogenic form of avian influenza. The U.S. Agriculture Department has communicated the presence of a low-pathogenic H6N2 virus in five of the 11 samples collected from wild Green-winged Teals in Fulton County, Illinois.
The low-pathogenic avian influenza virus is pretty common among birds, and might not cause them to be really sick. The year has found low-pathogenic bird flu in Unites States including Michigan, Montana, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
