As China is finding it hard to contain the coronavirus, the pathogenic virus strain of H5N1 avian influenza has already done away with 17,828 chickens within hours [ from Saturday morning to Saturday evening.]
According to Beijing’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs on Saturday, the farm where the virus originated had about 7,850 chickens, all culled and disposed off.
