Mass Bird flu vaccination to Chinese Poultry
China as started mass vaccination against bird flu to all its poultry birds and wild birds in it's country and as also increased its awareness program to farmers and villagers about the importance of vaccination to poultry and as asked the villagers to report immediately any doubtful death of birds in their area as it is reported that China has an estimated 14.2 billion birds.

China has reported two human deaths due to bird flu and is an increased threat for mutation of the bird flu virus to become a more virulent infective form for humans, the Chinese Government does not want to take any risks in preventing the disease from transmission from birds to humans as the risk of transmission of virus is high in China as it has more than 640,000 villages where birds are raised in close proximity with humans.
