A man whose name has not been released became the first person in the United States to test positive for the latest strain of the bird flu. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) made the announcement on Thursday, stating the man is under 40-years-old and tested positive for the H5 variant.
“This is the second human case associated with this specific group of H5 viruses that are currently predominant, and the first case in the United States,” said the CDC in a press release.
The patient is an inmate at a state correctional facility, and it was determined that the infection occurred due to exposure at a commercial farm in Montrose County, according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
The inmate was working as part of a pre-release employment program. The state health department said the affected flock was identified, euthanized and disposed of as required by federal guidelines.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The first case of bird flu in a human occurred in December 2021, when a man in the United Kingdom tested positive for the H5 bird flu. He did not have any symptoms and raised birds who became infected with the virus.
The CDC emphasized that the case does not change the “low” human risk assessment for the general public.
The bird flu has had a significant effect on the agricultural economy, with the current variant wiping out more than 25 million birds as of April 2.

Biden Administration shipping thousands of baby formula pallets to border while our shelves are empty
American Democrats won’t spend money to secure our borders but will send billions of dollars to Ukraine to help them secure theirs, and now they are taking away the little baby formula that’s left and giving that away, too.
As photos and videos of stores across the country that haven no more baby formula in stock are going viral on social media, Republican Congresswoman Kat Cammack made a shocking discovery. According to Cammack and reported by Townhall, “pallets of baby formula have been delivered by the Biden Administration as store shelves go bare.”
“Biden is sending pallets of baby formula to the border. Meanwhile, store shelves across America are empty and moms are being told they don’t know when more is coming in. Welcome to Biden’s America where American moms and dads are last,” Cammack posted on Facebook. “What is infuriating to me is that this is another example of an America last agenda. Pallets [of baby formula]”.
“The American government is sending by the pallet, thousands and thousands of containers of baby formula to the border,” she said in a video.
Border Patrol agents have been instructed not to take baby formula home for their own children.
The first photo is from this morning at the Ursula Processing Center at the U.S. border. Shelves and pallets packed with baby formula.
The second is from a shelf right here at home. Formula is scarce.
This is what America last looks like. pic.twitter.com/OO0V99njoy
