SUMMARY - The strain of HPAI (Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza) that is presently circulating amongst cow herds in the United States is presently not well adapted to transmit itself through the air, according to researchers from the country of Canada who purposely infected ferrets in order to test the transmission abilities of the virus. Only one out of four ferrets, isolated from contact with known infected ferrets, developed antibodies to the virus.
