The U.S. poultry industry has been dealing with a massive strain of the coronavirus that has hit the poultry industry hard.
The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization said Monday that the outbreak has killed more than 8 million chickens since it was first detected in the U.K. in late September, with more than 6.6 million of those deaths occurring in the United States.
The USDA said that in the first 24 hours after the outbreak was declared, more than 1 million chicken farmers and processors have been infected with the coronivirus.
In addition to chickens, more meat-eaters have also been infected.
On Friday, the U,S.
Department of Agriculture announced that more than 4,500 chickens at a poultry farm in North Carolina had tested positive for the coronvirus.
That farm is located about an hour outside of Raleigh.
Meanwhile, in Europe, more people have been diagnosed with COVID than in the Americas.
More than 3.6 billion people around the world have been exposed to COVID, the World Health Organization said.
In a statement, the agency said the latest figures on the worldwide outbreak were from Monday and that there were more than 30,000 new cases and 4,900 deaths worldwide.
While the numbers of people infected with COV-19 in the world may seem high, the virus has had a very limited impact on the poultry industries, said Paul B. Voorhees, the president of Voorheees Inc. in a statement.
“With the exception of a handful of countries, no major U. S. poultry producer has reported significant increases in the number of cases or fatalities since the start of the outbreak,” Voorheies said.
It is important to note that the U in particular has had limited impact, Voorhis said.
The U has seen a small increase in the numbers coming in from China and Europe, but those outbreaks are still much smaller than those in the states of the U S. and Canada.
Voorheires said he expects to see more data on poultry production from the U as the coronvalve evolves.
He added that the poultry companies need to take a more active role in public health measures, including increasing the amount of testing and testing of consumers.
