UK Parrot Infected With Bird Flu

The BBC reports that a dead parrot found in Britain was infected with bird flu. However, it has not been determined if the bird was infected by the deadly H5N1 virus.
A parrot that died in quarantine in the UK has tested positive for avian flu, the government has said.

The Department for the Environment, Fisheries and Food (Defra) has not said if it is the lethal strain H5N1.

It is the first case of avian flu in Britain - it has been found in Romania, Turkey and Greece after apparently being carried from Asia by wild birds.
If it is H5N1 then the deadly bird flu virus has spread to England as feared.
