More than 5.3 million birds have been destroyed in an effort to control the virulent H5N2 avian flu, more than 2.6 million in Minnesota alone. The University of Minnesota's Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) is working with researchers at the state and federal level to determine how the virus is entering poultry barns. An article in Business Insider describes those efforts, as well as the focus on improving protections for farm workers.
