Bird Flu Global Outbreaks

Comment on this article

An article in Deutsche Welle warns, “More than half a million poultry in Germany have been killed since the latest outbreak of highly contagious bird flu… Nearly 40 countries in Europe, Asia and Africa have reported outbreaks of various strains of avian flu in poultry or wild birds since November, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Fifteen countries in Europe have been hit by the highly pathogenic avian virus, including France, Hungary and Belgium” (February 13, 2017). According to the article, millions of birds have been culled across Europe to prevent further infection and, in China, an outbreak of the H7N9 strain has killed more than two dozen people. “Disease experts warn that if it were to mutate to gain easy human-to-human transmission capability there could be a global pandemic.”

There have been many avian flu outbreaks through the centuries and only a few have mutated into deadly pandemics. However, health officials know that sooner or later another one will. These events are not confined to the past, as Bible prophecy indicates our world will be struck by deadly plagues at the end of the age (Matthew 24:7; Luke 21:11; Revelation 6:8). This shows why we need to watch and have a close relationship with our Creator, as such calamities can be upon us very quickly.
