Here is the latest news posted on the Facebook page from South Korea as reported by Dr. Hon Ip:

“5-Mar-2015. South Korea finally reported their highly pathogenic outbreaks from this winter to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) yesterday. The first link is a detailed list, but see the second link for a summary. The sobering facts is that the country experienced 65 outbreaks in 22 “clusters” resulting in the culling of 2.8 million birds. Unlike the situation in the US, where the virus has diversified into multiple sub-types, all outbreaks in Korea seem to be H5N8.”
