Destruction of bird flu virus, conceptual 3D illustration. This is an avian influenza H5N8 virus particle. This strain of the virus has caused disease in wild birds and poultry in Europe and Asia since June 2016. Unusually, the virus causes mortality in wild birds, which are more often silent carriers. As of February 2017 no human cases of the disease have been reported, and risk of transmission to humans is thought to be low.
