Bird flu jumps to human from cow for second time in the US

A second case of bird flu has been found in a human, US health authorities announced Wednesday, less than two months after the first one as an outbreak of the disease circulates widely among dairy cows.

Both individuals infected with the virus called H5N1 – the first in Texas, the second in Michigan – were dairy farm workers who suffered only minor symptoms and have recovered, according to authorities.

Despite the second infection, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said its risk assessment for the general public remained "low," but it did suggest it expects more cases.
