Looks like a 50% reduction in the first week of Market closures! That's a good sign but the number of H5's circulating in China and really world wide is worrisome. I've only been following for a short time but don't remember a time when there were this many avian viruses out there at the same time! (H1) N1,N2,N3,N6&N8 all percolating in the worlds largest cesspool! God help us!
