The Bird Flu may be making a comeback.  Hong Kong is now working to stop that from happening.

Health workers in Hong Kong are slaughtering chickens after a bird flu outbreak.

Hong Kong’s top health official says three dead chickens found at a farm have tested positive for Bird Flu.

Now, 80-thousand chickens will be slaughtered.

Chicken imports will immediately be suspended for 21-days.

Hong Kong’s biggest Bird Flu outbreak was in 1997, when the strain jumped to humans and killed six people.

That prompted the government to slaughter all 1-and-a-half-million chickens.
