Message to Canadian Citizens in Turkey
The Public Health Agency of Canada continues to closely monitor occurrences of avian influenza A (H5N1), or “bird flu”, in birds and in humans in Asia and Europe, with particular attention to the current outbreak in humans in Turkey.
According to the World Health Organization, while the number of outbreaks in birds continues to increase, the transmission of H5N1 to humans remains sporadic and there is currently no evidence of efficient human-to-human transmission. There is no cause for panic.

Looks like I’ll be there for 3-5 weeks, starting Febuary 6th. The March move date will likely be pushed back to April, with work picking up the delta rent (it’s due to increase March 1, even more if you’re not signing a lease, and are going month to month)
