For 100 years, viral pandemics have all come from animals
There WILL be another pandemic, say scientists. Where, when and how is yet to be seen but bird flu is a serious candidate. The H5N1 strain of bird flu (avian influenza) is a major concern. It is already in the UK, with 80 outbreaks in poultry and other captive birds being reported in the winter of 2021/22. Up to 2022, there had been just 863 global cases in people. Not a lot! But the scary thing is that 456 of them died – a death rate of over 50 per cent! Most caught the infection by direct contact with poultry. So far, the virus is not easily spread person to person like seasonal flu and Covid-19
End factory farming before it ends us!
This great A6 leaflet is brilliant for spreading awareness and taking action. It is perfect for outreach events, used on stalls and door dropping.
Viva!’s fight is a fight for life – for animals and ourselves. Through effective campaigning, we take the brutal reality of intensive farming to the people who can effect the most change: consumers. Our wide-ranging campaigns promote veganism as the best way to save animals from suffering, protect the environment, improve health and help those in developing countries.
We have cleared most shelves of so-called ‘exotic meats’; our campaign against factory farming of pigs, turkeys and ducks aw deaths dive; we are closer than ever to a foie-gras free Britain and meat and dairy consumption are down in the UK thanks to Viva! and you. Viva! is a registered charity (1037486).
