Avian influenza—kent informally as avian flu or bird flu is a variety o influenza caused bi viruses adaptit tae birds.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7] The teep wi the greatest risk is heichly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). Bird flu is seemilar to swine flu, dug flu, horse flu an human flu as an illness caused bi strains of influenza viruses that hae adaptit tae a speceefic host. Oot o the three teeps o influenza viruses (A, B, and C), influenza A virus is a zoonotic infection wi a naitural reservoir awmaist entirely in birds.[8] Avian influenza, for maist purposes, refers tae the influenza A virus.
