Avian influenza (AI) is a highly contagious viral disease that affects birds.
It is caused by influenza A viruses, which are also responsible for the common flu in humans.
AI viruses can be classified as low pathogenic (LPAI) or highly pathogenic (HPAI).
LPAI viruses cause mild illness in birds, while HPAI viruses can cause severe illness and death.
AI viruses can spread through contact with the saliva, mucus, or feces of infected birds.
In general, the symptoms are similar to those of the common flu, and may include fever, cough, sore throat, muscle aches, and fatigue.
