Q) What are the consequences of outbreaks in poultry?
 
A) Outbreaks of avian influenza, especially the highly pathogenic form, can be devastating for the poultry industry and for farmers. Economic consequences can be especially devastating in developing countries where poultry raising is an important source of income – and of food – for impoverished rural farmers and their families. When outbreaks become widespread within a country, control can be extremely difficult. For these reasons, government authorities usually undertake aggressive emergency control measures as soon as an outbreak is detected.
