Water-based foam to curb the spread of bird flu!

Now, the US has another arm in its arsenal to obstruct the spread of deadly bird flu virus. Actually, US government has approved a water-based foam to kill chickens in case bird flu outbreak occurs.

Experts believe that this water-based foam is capable of killing infected birds more effectively than traditional carbon dioxide. The good thing about this water-based foam is that it can be used to kill the infected birds even in the structurally unsound buildings.

This water-based foam is safer for the workers as compared to the carbon dioxide gas. Expressing the same view, Marty Zaluski, North Carolina Agriculture Department veterinarian said:

Using gas was not safe for people, it was more intensive as far as personnel and it was not as humane for the animals.
