Disturbing Photos Emerge of Texas Dairy Worker’s Rare Bird Flu Infection from Cow

The first known case of a human contracting H5N1 from a mammal was recently reported in Texas, where a dairy farm worker suffered “very mild” symptoms including bleeding in the eyes due to the infection.

While this appears to be an isolated incident so far, the CDC has stressed that the virus is not a new strain and that they have been preparing for avian flu outbreaks for decades. However, the rapid spread of H5N1 among cattle herds, as well as in other U.S. mammals like farm cats and poultry, has heightened concerns about the potential for the virus to adapt and pose a greater threat to human health.

Spreading in Chickens and Cows

Tens of millions of chickens have already died or been culled to prevent the virus from spreading further. The detection of H5N1 in cattle is a concerning development, as cows have not been previously known to be susceptible to influenza A viruses. This raises the possibility that the virus could adapt to better infect and transmit between mammals, potentially bringing the world closer to a bird flu pandemic. 

Experts are particularly worried about the virus potentially spreading to pigs, which are known “mixing vessels” that can allow genetic reassortment between avian and human flu strains.

While the risk to the general public remains low, health officials are taking the situation seriously. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stressed that this is not a new strain of the virus, and that they have been preparing for avian flu outbreaks for decades. 

However, the detection of H5N1 in dairy cows and the first known case of a human contracting the virus from a mammal have heightened concerns about the virus’s potential to adapt and spread.

      What the photo dont show is birds on the way to a swift reecovery. Everyone knows that the easiest way to cure the birds flu is to give it plenty of gaterade and saltean crackerjacks

    They have been working to mutate the Avian flu since 2020. Just like COVID. Looks like they succeeded in doing just that. Welcome to the next “pandemic”. Of course there will be another MRNA vaccine to “fix” the issue just like last time.

      What a moron you are. Disease is our oldest enemy. Not surprising at all that in a warming world with crazy husbandry process that we would find new opportunities for transmission.

      IF we have another pandemic, do us all a favor and don’t get vaccinated. The sooner dipshits like you die out, the better for the rest of us. The world is in its current state of shit because of people like *you*, Michael.

      I hope you find your way back to reality, because right now, you’re an embarrassment to the human race.

        While I understand your anger and response to this dumbass, the resistance to vaccinations, blatant apathy from others, and, let’s be real here, little to no actual government action to combat the COVID pandemic, was the reason it’s gotten so bad at all. The more we tell people to let themselves get infected, the worse we’re making it for each other. These people have no empathy for others, and the discrimination toward fellow human beings is only a strength for a virus like COVID. You and I know these people don’t give a damn about others, and if they got sick they would happily go about their merry day despite it and cause a chain of infections to others.

        It’s very saddening that we have all these years of research and real life applications, and yet we still face resistance from a small very vocal, very violent minority who refuse to protect themselves and, by extension, others

      Wow man you need to do your research. They havent been trying to mutate anything. They have been building 5G towers by these farms so the 5G energy transmutes the virus’ ability to jump species. Now they are pushing 5GHZ wifi routers into peoples houses so the gigabitties are being pumped into your family and it talks with the MRNa vaccines from covid to activate what is known as the L.I.G.M.A. protocol and start the subconscious transfer of data through osmosis into the ondeez gland.

      Fortunately, if your privy to the ACTUAL knowledge of whats going on…you would know that true American MAGA patriots are countering with the S.U.G.M.A initiative to prevent the quiet assassination of our ways of life. I suggest you look into it to save yourself, and your family from the LIGMA nuts out there.

        Thing is – stupid people will believe anything.

        The worst place to live would be near a windmill/solar farm with those 5G towers, public transit, everyday conveniences, including a job, so close. You MUST fear the future!

      Michael, vaccines have been standard forever the world over. Nothing has changed that besides absolute brain rot that you’ll never prove because it doesn’t exist. You’re the flat earthers of vaccines, a complete joke.

        Everyone attacks one person on this post because he said something you disagree with and you people think he is the problem? You all are what’s wrong with the world everyone has a right to believe and say what they want and shouldn’t have to be attacked by a bunch of people with no lives and nothing better to do then attack people on web pages because your all cowards in real life. Facts. I know the truth hurts. I’m waiting for the charming comments that come to me from this lot of “winners” who’s opinions matter more then someone speaking their mind. One thing to disagree another thing completely to attack someone cuz you don’t share their thoughts. Bunch of cyber bullying jerk offs and that’s what really grinds my gears.

          Frank the tank, couldn’t have said it better myself. Totally agree with you. It’s OK to disagree and have a difference point of view on things. Just because you don’t agree with it or goes against the norm, doesn’t give people the right to become assholes and attack the person you don’t agree with. That is cyber bullying and that’s not contributing well to the stupidity we have ongoing in the world. You’re all tough and mighty behind a keyboard, how about you actually do something useful with yourself and contribute to spreading good vibes and energy to the world? Instead youre all adding to the negativity, which we have enough of that already . So from what I see is that you are what’s wrong with the world. If you’re looking to do good , then stfu, quit bullying people and do good things by sending good vibes only. Peace, love, unity and respect. Let’s focus on creating a better world for each other instead of being twats.

            “Spread good vibes”…”you twats”

            You’re telling people to be more understanding while simultaneously not being understanding of their outrage towards someone who has helped kill millions of people by spreading misinformation about a deadly disease…

            If someone is so dense and self-centered that they are a danger to others by just existing… do they deserve our compassion when they would be incapable of understanding that compassion anyway?

          How many people died because of the spread of misinformation like this?
          Yes, we should absolutely try to be our best selves and graciously explain our disagreements.

          However… the distain is also 100% warranted by the absolute arrogance in his assumption that he is special and knows better than the rest of the world about a topic in which he is woefully undereducated. A topic, with extremely really consequences for people besides himself. It is his apathy towards the health of others that earns him that distain.
