However, before the state of transport and trade of poultry disease poultry complex of unknown origin took place today, the risk of avian influenza H5N1 outbreak and spread to humans is very high if the authorities do not adequately control measures.
Moreover, the smuggling of poultry diseases in the past is a huge risk for the spread of the A/H5N1 flu outbreak from country to country, or from one region to another.
