    Officials from the Ministry of Health have announced that the three-day incubation period for the bird flu has now passed, which means that the immediate danger to human lives is over. “The fact that there have been no cases on human beings so far is a good sign,” Ramazan Uzun said.

    Uzun, director of the contagious diseases desk at the Ministry went on the explain that the elapsed eight day period is a comforting sign insofar as human beings are concerned: “No case of human beings have been reported, so means that menas the danger is over. We handled the situation with great care and prepared for the worst, the H5N1 virus in this case.”

    Uzun also said that medicine was supplied to all groups that were in immediate proximity to the outbreak in Manyas.

    “I would like to point out that there is no danger in Turkey as far as human health is concerned. Our situation is different then Southeastern Asia, where people and animals live rather closely,” said Uzun.

    The area is now under strict monitoring, however a great deal of financial damage has already been done to the chicken breeding farms all over Turkey, a result of the drastic decline in sales.
