H7N6 Bird flu on Aichi quail farm

The strain of the virus was found on a quail farm in Toyohashi in the Aichi Perfecture in February. Thankfully it was not the H5N1 virus that can be harmful to humans. Needless to say I will be avoiding eggs and poultry when I am in Japan. If that is even possible... I will be in the Aichi perfecture for 2 weeks.

News sources here and here.

Well, avoiding poultry may be impossible. As long as it is cooked I won't be too worried.
