A person in Texas contracted bird flu after contact with infected dairy cattle. According to state officials, it’s the first human case of the highly pathogenic strain of avian influenza in Texas and the second recorded in the U.S.

The risk to the general public is believed to be low. People who have close contact with infected animals have a higher risk. State officials recommend that clinicians should “consider the possibility” of infection in people with symptoms and a potential risk for exposure, including those who have had close contact with someone infected, contact with affected animals, or contact with unpasteurized milk from dairy farms with infections.

Symptoms can include a fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, headaches, fatigue, eye redness, shortness of breath, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, or seizures. The illness can range from mild to severe, and healthcare providers who come across someone who may have the virus should immediately consult their local health department.
