Animals Need to Be Closely Watched for Flu

World Health Organization Says

GENEVA

Some pigs, turkeys and household pets have become infected with the H1N1
flu, but the pandemic virus does not yet appear to be spreading quickly
among animals, the World Health Organization said on Friday.

WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl said it was not clear how the isolated
animals had contracted the flu virus that is spreading quickly among
humans in the northern hemisphere, particularly in Eastern Europe.

A novel flu virus -- looking like a mix of human and swine genes -- has
been detected in some mink farms in Denmark, and seems to have infected
only the animals and not the farm workers in proximity to them....
