The H5N8 virus continues to fuel outbreaks, including a first detection in Ireland.
Several European countries reported more H5N8 outbreaks several different settings: wild birds, poultry, and even at a zoo.
In addition to widespread H5N8, H5N1 is confirmed in Nigeria and H5N6 in Japan.
Though a UK C diff spike was thought to be caused by dirty hospital rooms, that theory proved unlikely.
The UK reported H5N8 avian flu on a pheasant farm housing 10,000 birds.
New H5N8 outbreaks, which have affected at least 24 European countries, plus some in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, were reported in Germany, Italy, Poland, and the UK.
Finland, Poland, and the UK also report new H5N8 avian flu outbreaks.
UK researchers report that a frontline drug combo failed in 4 patients.
Also, 5 European nations report much more H5N8, and Japan confirms a new H5 outbreak.
