Two people in Great Britain who work on the same poultry farm have tested positive for bird flu, the country’s public health authority says.
The people showed no symptoms.
The two people are the first people to test positive for the virus in the UK since a 79-year-old was infected after he let ducks into his home in early 2022.

The Russian information that it hit Ukraine’s most advanced air defense system, the American-made Patriot, appears to be partly correct, according to CNN.
An American official says that the system is probably damaged, but not destroyed – something that Russia claimed. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, for his part, claims that all Russian projectiles were destroyed during the attack.
Ukraine has two Patriot systems, one sent by the US and one from Germany and the Netherlands. (TT)

An affected and confused man managed to get into the residence of Jake Sullivan, Joe Biden’s national security adviser, late one night in April, writes the Washington Post citing White House sources.
This despite the fact that Sullivan has round-the-clock surveillance outside his home in Washington by the Secret Service.
He managed to outwit the intruder himself and it was only afterwards that Sullivan was able to alert the agents outside about the drama they had missed.
There is no indication that the man knew who Sullivan is or that he was out to hurt him. But the incident is really embarrassing for the Secret Service.
An investigation has now been launched.

A man in Jönköping county is suspected of having worked as an ambulance nurse for several months – even though he was not a nurse at all.

In the ambulance, he has cared for acutely ill patients.

Two skeletons have been unearthed in Pompeii by archaeologists, writes TT.
Despite having died in an earthquake that occurred after the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius that buried the city in ash in 79.
The skeletons are probably two men, around 55 years old, AFP reports.
It is believed that the men died when the earthquake brought down a wall in the room where they sought shelter.
Archaeologists estimate that 15-20 percent of Pompeii’s population died in the devastating volcanic eruption.
The remains of more than 1,000 people have so far been found across the affected area. In 2020, bodies believed to be a slave and his possible owner were found.
Now the spread of influenza A and B is down to low levels. And with that, the flu epidemic is deemed to be over for this time.
That’s what TT writes and refers to the Public Health Authority.
In December, the situation was strained because flu, RS virus and covid-19 reached high levels at the same time.
“During every period of increased spread of infection, there are people who become seriously ill, but this winter was the first time we saw a simultaneous peak with all three diseases,” says AnnaSara Carnahan, epidemiologist and investigator at the Public Health Agency, in a press release.
However, the spread of covid-19 is still ongoing – and is expected to continue this summer as well.
A one-year-old boy died when a hippo attacked a riverboat in Malawi, reports say BBC.
The boat capsized in the attack, which happened on Monday.
14 people managed to swim ashore or were rescued by other people who dived into the river.
But 23 people are still missing, and hope of finding survivors is fading.
The boat is said to have been packed with people who were going to cross the Shire River to work in the fields on the other side.
Local politicians have long demanded that a bridge be built over the river – so that people do not have to risk their lives.
