Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Preparedness
Between December 2014 and June 2015, an outbreak of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) occurred in the Pacific Northwest and the Mid-western states, infecting a total of 211 commercial and 21 backyard poultry premises and resulting in the destruction of 49.6 million birds. Although no new cases have occurred since mid-June 2015, experts believe the disease could recur in the fall or winter of 2015 as waterfowl—the natural reservoir of the HPAI virus—migrate south. The state of Georgia could be affected if waterfowl in the Atlantic flyway become contaminated. HPAI is most likely to first infect backyard flocks.
