White House: Bird Flu Has Arrived in United States

Scientists have discovered the possible presence of bird flu in wild mute swans in Michigan - but it does not appear to be the worrisome, highly pathogenic strain, the White House announced Monday.

“They believe it is a strain of low pathogenicity, similar to strains that have been seen before in North America,” White House spokesman Tony Snow said.

Testing is still being done to confirm the presence of the virus and its type, officials said.
