This past Friday a group of Doctor specialists educated area folks at the Stafford County Annex on the dangers of Animal Disease – including avian bird flu.
According to the World Bank the economic devastation caused by a bird flu pandemic could cost the world up to 2 trillion dollars.
The presenters explained to students that somebody with the right know-how could easily infect any group of our animals.
The Doctor’s explained that things are done at the intelligence level. What they stressed for our level is early recognition and taking the initial steps necessary to minimize/control the spread.
The capstone for the day’s training was a tabletop exercise.
