Outbreak in Bangladesh & large poultry die off in India

Outbreaks of H5N1 in poultry killed 500 chickens in the Moulavibazar district, about 250 km (155 miles) from the capital. That brings the total to 71 affected farms in 22 out of 64 districts

Meanwhile, 25,000 birds have died near the India-Bangladesh border (around Margram). Tests have yet to confirm whether or not the die off was caused by H5N1
