Avian influenza refers to the disease caused by infection with avian (bird) influenza (flu) Type A viruses. These viruses occur naturally among wild aquatic birds worldwide and can infect domestic poultry and other bird and animal species. Avian flu viruses do not normally infect humans. However, sporadic human infections with avian flu viruses have occurred.
The best prevention is to avoid sources of exposure. Most human infections with avian influenza A viruses have occurred following direct close or prolonged contact with sick or dead infected poultry.
