Michigan Announces Their 1st Human H5 Infection (Mild & Now Recovered)

Recommended PPE For Farmers 


Michigan, whose dairy farms have been particularly hard hit by H5N1, today is reporting their first human H5 infection, in a farmer who has had extensive contact with cattle.  The farm worker reportedly had mild symptoms and has since recovered. 

Details are scant in today's announcement, although I would expect to hear a more detailed report from the CDC in the days ahead.
