"Nearly 17 Million Dead Chickens And Turkeys And Counting –
America’s Bird Flu Pandemic Has Begun!"
by Epic Economist
"Can you imagine what this country is going to look like if we have severe shortages of chicken and turkey by the end of the year? I don’t know why more people are not alarmed about the horrific bird flu pandemic that is sweeping across America like wildfire right now. On February 8th, the very first case of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) was confirmed in a domestic U.S. flock. Just over one month later, on March 9th, we released a video that lamented the fact that almost 2.8 million birds (mostly chickens and turkeys) had already died during the first month of the pandemic. Unfortunately, since that time things have gotten much, much worse. This pandemic is not even two months old yet, and the death toll for chickens and turkeys has now risen to nearly 17 million.
The frightening thing is that bird flu just keeps popping up in more places around the country and nobody can tell us why it is spreading so rapidly. In fact, the USDA just announced five more outbreaks.
Experts stress that the virus can also cause sudden death in birds, even if they are not showing symptoms. “We’re asking that anyone involved with poultry or egg production, from large farms all the way down to backyard flock, review and implement their biosecurity practices to ensure the health and well-being of their flocks,” Dr. Hall said.
Overall, cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza have now been confirmed in 23 different U.S. states. This plague is completely and utterly out of control, and the word “catastrophic” is not nearly strong enough to describe what we are witnessing. Once a single bird tests positive for highly pathogenic avian influenza, the entire flock must be put down.
In other words, not a single bird can be left alive. Needless to say, the price of eggs is going to go through the roof. I have focused on the United States in this article, but the truth is that bird flu outbreaks are raging all over the globe right now.
When you combine this pandemic with the war in Ukraine, skyrocketing fertilizer prices and disastrous harvests around the planet, it is easy to see that the stage is being set for the sort of nightmarish global food crisis that I have long warned about. It seems like so many things are going horribly wrong all at once, but most people still don’t understand what is happening.
Most people just assume that our grocery stores will always be packed with mountains of extremely cheap food, and so the vast majority of them won’t take any steps to get prepared even though they have been warned again and again about what is coming."
