Turkey culls 1.28 million birds

Up to now 1.28 million birds have been culled in Turkey in an effort to stop the spread of bird flu, said the Turkish National Coordination Center for bird flu on Monday. The same statement said that bird flu had been detected in 16 provinces including Ankara and Istanbul. Twenty-one people have been infected with bird flu in Turkey, including four teenagers who have died of the H5N1 strain of bird flu this year.

Experts fear that the disease, which currently jumps from birds to humans, might mutate into a form that can easily transmit among humans, which would lead to a global pandemic.
