Where it stands: The avian flu outbreak in Minnesota

Minnesota Board of Animal Health workers cleaned and discarded their protective gear at a Nobles County turkey farm affected by the flu. The farm, east of Worthington, has three barns, one which held 7,000 turkeys affected by the diseases. 

More than 5 million birds in 21 Minnesota counties have died from the disease or were killed to prevent its spread.
